Los Angeles: Comedian-actress Tina Fey has banned her daughter from following in her footsteps over fears she is too young to enter showbiz.

The funny woman gave Alice, seven, a cameo role in one of the final episodes of her hit TV series `30 Rock`, but insisted she has no intention of letting the youngster pursue a full-time career in Hollywood, reported People magazine.

"With my kids, so far it seems to be about me holding them back. They see this exciting life (and want to be part of it)," said Fey.

The actress even made Alice ask guests at a recent Oscars viewing party whether she should be allowed to go into show business.

"I made her write out a poll so everyone who came to our Oscar party had to (vote) `Should Alice be allowed to be in movies?` And I was the only person that said `No.` I was like `Unfortunately for you, I am the only vote that counts`," she said.
