Alec Baldwin’s Got Shit to Say, Y’all
Alec Baldwin really let loose when he sat down for an interview with GQ Magazine for their October Issue. He touched upon such delicate subjects as his ex-wife, Charlie Sheen’s divorce as well as the public scrutiny surrounding Tom Cruise. The New York Post’s Page Six provides some choice quotes from the juicy interview:
When Baldwin got hit with Basinger’s legal missives, “it said all of these things, like I wasn’t a good father [to 10-year-old daughter Ireland] . . . I remember lying in bed, thinking I wanted to die on the spot . . . I would say, ‘Please don’t let me wake up. I can’t face another day.’ ” He saves extra vitriol for Basinger’s lawyers at Hersh, Mannis & Bogen, who he believes influence her. “[Judy] Bogen, she’s this 300-pound homunculus whose face looks like a cross between a bulldog and a clenched fist. She’s this hideously angry-looking woman. She’d snarl and hiss.”
He says the same firm represented Denise Richards in her bust-up with Charlie Sheen, who was accused of enjoying barely legal teen porn. “Charlie Sheen may be one of the great horndogs of his generation, but he is not a pedophile,” Baldwin says. The actor, who recently rekindled his romance with lawyer Nicole Seidel, also defends Tom Cruise against his critics – albeit in a snarky way: “I think what’s been done to Tom is kind of silly. I don’t really understand Tom’s religious beliefs; nor do I want to. All I know is I don’t see people who are disciples of Tom’s faith driving planes into the World Trade Center. When Scientologists start crashing planes into the Pentagon, then I think we should sit Tom down and have a grand jury talk to him. In the meantime, let’s just leave him alone.”
Who knew an angry Baldwin could be so entertaining?
