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.
