In Garner's recent Vanity Fair tell-all, she opened up about her split from ex Ben Affleck and revealed that Fey and Amy Poehler help her cope when she's feeling down.

"When I can't sleep -- and I am not someone who typically has that problem, but I really have in the last year -- and I need something to switch my brain off, it has been Tina Fey and Amy Poehler," the 43-year-old actress shared. "God bless those girls."

"I remember dancing really hard with her at our first Golden Globes after party," said Fey, recounting her hosting gig, alongside Poehler, at the 2015 Golden Globes.

Fey went on to say one of the things that made her missing hosting the Golden Globes was not getting the chance to "dance hard with Jennifer Garner anymore."

Fey also opened up about this year's Oscars, specifically Chris Rock's Girl Scout cookie sale, which really grabbed her attention.

"I was off camera waving a $20 dollar bill immediately!" Fey recalled. "When I saw what was happening I was like, 'Cookie!'"
