(CNN) – One of the funnier parts of the Golden Globes, aside from a supposedly drunk Glenn Close, was when Tina Fey called out Taylor Swift and told her to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son, Sam.

It’s presumed Fey was joking, and we never did get to see whether Swift was really trying to talk to Sam at the Awards or not. If she was, however, Sam might want to prepare a better introduction for his dad.

When New York Magazine’s Vulture brought up the memorable moment to the elder Fox at a book party and asked if he would approve of the two dating, the actor said, “No. No …. Just back off.”

Perhaps part of the problem is that Fox only seems familiar with Swift’s songwriting reputation – he admitted that if his son brought Swift home for dinner, Fox “wouldn’t even know who she was.”

“I don’t keep up with it all,” he said. “But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? What a way to build a career.”
