"It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke," she told Us Weekly.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Tina and Amy threw numerous playful jabs at plenty of stars while hosting the Globes - including a joke about Taylor eyeing Michael J. Fox's 23-year-old son (who was handing out trophies at the ceremony).

"I just feel like it was just a little joke, like two of your aunts -- two of your old lady aunts -- teasing you at the Thanksgiving table," Tina told Access Hollywood of the joke, at the SAG Awards back in January. "That's all it was."
