Of course the message was out of line, but I have heard....and this is not to justify it, just to put it in a little context.....when she is with him in NY and Kim calls, his daughter always answers the pone right away and talks for hours to Kim.

Yeah, not ot say that he shouldn't be frustrated, just nobody should ever be as frustrated to say those things to an 11-year old kid.

His problems with his ex-wife are between her and him. Putting a child into the middle of a situation like this is pathetic and childish. I don't normally care what the hell anyone does in Hollywood, but when parents who burden their kids with their own problems sickens me.

Doesn't surprise me - he's alway's been a #1 a-hole. There's a lot of movies made up here in southern Alberta - Clint Eastwood, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Costner, Robert Duval, Gene Hackman, Brad Pitt are just a few of the stars that have been here and have been complimentary of the place and been pleasant in public and nice to fans. Baldwin, a "B" list star at best, said derogatory things about the area, was rude in public everywhere he went and behaved like a boor, and basically treated everyone he dealt with like sh** - guy is just a total jerk! He has all the class of a wet beer fart!!!

I kind of don't see the problem here, but then again, I'm probably assuming a lot since this is Alec Baldwin and his daughter. Even though she's 11, she likely grew up much different than most other 11 year olds. I'd also guess that she's not unfamiliar with cursing being a Hollywood child. And her name is Ireland, of all things, so she's bound to go through some mental trauma anyways.
The cake is a lie.

Baldwin went over the line with his comments...that's for sure. But we don't know the entire story. We don't know what the daughter did or didn't do that made him so mad. Either way, he definitely shouldn't have said some of the things he said.



I'm surprised that noone is upset with the fact that this was obviously leaked by Basinger and/or her lawyers. That's just wrong. :-t

Thanks to deluxe_247 for the awesome sig!
