Alec Baldwin Kinda Makes The Rest Of Us Feel Like Shit

November 30th, 2009 // 7 Comments

Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally proud of my completely sub-par life, but when Alec Baldwin proclaims to the world that he considers his film career “a complete failure”, I feel the tiniest bit unaccomplished.

I’m gunna go out on a limb and say his current T.V. career as Jack on 30 Rock is probably the funniest shit he’ll ever crap out of his grumpy ass (get a look at his sour-puss face as someone spots him!). But nooo, nothing is good enough for Alec. That poor daughter of his, she’ll never be good enough for him.

Baldwin explained to Men’s Journal that he basically thought his entire film career was a dud, adding, “The goal of movie-making is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that.”

While I appreciate the attempt at modesty, Alec mostly just comes off as sounding ungrateful. I will cut him some slack and say, in terms of his films, I can’t for the life of me think of anything besides Beetlejuice I’ve liked more. But maybe that isn’t such a bad thing at all.

    I have to disagree with you here. I have recently read quite a few interviews with Alec Baldwin and I think he actually is genuinely quite down on himself. This is a huge shame because he is tremendously talented.

    Regarding your comment about his daughter I dont think you could be further from the truth. Its pretty clear that he absolutely adores his daughter and his ‘rude little pig’ comment was primarily directed towards Kim Basinger who put as many roadblocks in front of him as possible so he could not see or get in touch with his daughter. He even wrote a book all about it.

    While he is good looking, I kinda agree with him. I looked up his movies and I’ve only seen 1, Beetle Juice. And he wasn’t the star.

    I didn’t even remember he was in Knot’s Landing and I was a huge fan of that.

    So yes I live under a rock, but if he wants to quit and enjoy his life then go for it guy.

    But he was brilliant in State & Main, and I think that’s one of my favorite movies.

    it’s disgusting that anyone knows what he said to his daughter. not our business. and my dad said much worse to me when i was younger. big fuckin deal.

    I loved him in Outside Providence. Thought he was great…and I don’t understand why he’s so hard on himself right now–he’s hosting the Oscars and he’s on a critically acclaimed television show. It’s not a critically acclaimed film but a brilliant show none the less.

  7. Lady GaGa Is Stupid

    He was fantastic as a guest star in a variety of shows, such as SNL, creating classic characters such as “Canteen Boy” and Mr. Shweaty. And he was excellent in “Running With Scissors…”

    Aside from that, his private life is private. We love you, Alec! (the rest of the brothers didn’t get 1/2 the talent)
