Alec Baldwin talks TMZ
In case you haven’t noticed, Alec Baldwin isn’t the most … let’s say “calm-minded” person, especially when it comes to the media. So it may or may not come as a surprise to you that in his latest interview with Vanity Fair, which comes on the heels of his marriage, Alec talks all about how he wants to violently murder TMZ's Harvey Levin as well as his ex-wife’s lawyers. Completely normal.
Baldwin, who recently got into an altercation with a Daily News photographer, is the first to admit he’s had a volatile past, acknowledging that he often “gave the Heisman” to people in Hollywood, sometimes “unreasonably” and “childishly.” When Purdum asks Baldwin where he thinks his anger comes from, the actor launches into a long description of the perversity of the industry he works in: “You know, Hollywood does draw some very strange characters, and then the power of Hollywood and what they can do with it becomes like a blood sport to them.” Then he returned to the frustrations and injustices of his child-custody case. He outlined vivid fantasies of the gruesome ways in which he might have murdered his wife’s lawyer (“with a baseball bat”) or Harvey Levin, the TMZ producer who posted the embarrassing voice mail Baldwin left for his daughter: “I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him and I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes.”
HOLY CRAP ALEC BALDWIN IS A PSYCHOPATH! I mean - HA! Alec is so right about everything! And handsome! He’s a handsome, talented actor, I agree with everything he says. (Please don’t kill me!)
Alec Baldwin loves the paparazzi!
In the eternal war between the paparazzi and the famous, there really are no winners: sure, the paparazzi overstep their bounds sometimes, but it’s not like the people they’re following are saints. That being said, it’s generally advantageous to both parties if no one is actively trying to punch the other side in the mouth. But Alec Baldwin will be DAMNED if some snide paparazzo doesn’t getting mouthful of Jack Donaghy's fists, Saint Patrick and Saint Michael. The New York Daily News reports:
An enraged Alec Baldwin punched a Daily News photographer in the chin Tuesday morning for snapping his picture outside the city Marriage License Bureau. The volatile 30 Rock star popped lensman Marcus Santos once in the face outside the Worth St. office after apparently obtaining a license to wed fiancee Hilaria Thomas. Santos was standing innocently with two other photographers when Baldwin, 54, approached with an angry glare. “He was looking mad,” said Santos. “He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’”
Baldwin then grabbed a second News photographer, Jefferson Siegel, and Santos told the Rock of Ages star to back off. “I said, ‘Don’t touch him,’” the 42-year-old Santos said. “I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming. “He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way.” Santos, who joined the Daily News staff two years ago, said he filed an assault complaint with the NYPD against Baldwin — whose history of anger mismanagement includes two previous attacks on photographers. Police were investigating, and it was unclear if Baldwin would be arrested.
Look, I think Alec’s an insanely talented and gifted comedic actor, but that being said, that really doesn’t give him carte blanche to fly off the handle like that. And he seemed like such a level-headed guy too …
Alec Baldwin isn’t as fat as he used to be!
If you watched the SAG Awards this past Sunday, I’m sorry. I don’t know why people torture themselves like that. What a snooze fest, amiright?!? That’s just how I feel about award shows in general (except the Grammys). The SAGs were kind of the same as every other award show ever; boring speeches thanking people I don’t know or care about. But if there was one thing that stood out — it was that Alec Baldwin isn’t as fat as he used to be.
The 30 Rock boss man dropped thirty pounds! That’s pretty major. He says being diagnosed as pre-diabetic was a wake up call and he changed his ways. “I do Pilates and spin, but I don’t do as much yoga as I’d like,” he told Access Hollywood. “When we’re shooting and I can’t work out, I just have to eat less. So I’m very conscious of that. But sugar was the real killer for me — that was the problem.”
Besides obviously leading to weight gain, too much sugar can also:
• Cause headaches, including migraines
• Contribute to premature aging
• Suppress the immune system
• Cause a rapid rise of adrenaline, hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness in children
• Weaken eyesight
Put the pixie stick down! For a Hollywood-approved body, cut back the sugar! *W*

Alec Baldwin: Booted off a plane over ‘Words w/ Friends’
There’s something about air travel that causes celebrities to have the kind of full-blown meltdown that we try and fill this site up with, from Kevin Smith being too fat to fly to Gerard Depardieu peeing in a bottle. Well, now we have a new addition to the list, when Alec Baldwin called out American Airlines after they threw him off a flight for what I’m sure was a valid reason … oh, wait, nevermind, they kicked him off for playing Words With Friends. What the crap. TMZ reports:
We’re told Baldwin’s tweets about the incident are on point — flight attendants wanted him to shut off his cell phone in the middle of a game of “Words with Friends” … after the cabin door closed, but the plane remained at the gate. But according to passengers … after the confrontation over his phone, Alec got up to go to the bathroom and angrily slammed the lavatory door. We’re told it was so loud the captain called back to flight attendants to find out what was happening. That’s when the captain himself made the call to have Baldwin removed.
Really? That’s all it takes to get kicked off a plane? iPhone games and door slamming? I once saw a grown man get up in his seat and scream at a flight attendant until you could see each individual vein in his neck and forehead, and the worst they did to him was not give him any peanuts. Okay, so granted we were mid-flight at the time, but I think if you’re gonna be that big of a dick on an airplane, they should give you a parachute and a gentle push out of the doorway and see how that works out.
Alec Baldwin might run for NYC Mayor
In what I’m assuming is a desperate attempt to make everyone in New York City forget that he made The Cat In The Hat (Jesus, just … Jesus…) Alec Baldwin is planning on running for mayor. And why the hell not at this point. California elected a bodybuilding actor with a lovechild as their GOVERNOR, so mayor actually seems almost attainable at this point.
The “30 Rock” actor tells The New York Times he’ll sit out the 2013 race but will consider running in a later election.
In a wide-ranging interview, the 53-year-old says he’s talking with two universities about enrolling in a master’s program in politics and government. He says he wants to better understand what the fiscal imperatives of the mayor’s job are. SOURCE
Considering the only personal information I have to run on here is that Alec Baldwin makes terrible movies, great TV, and once called his daughter a rude little pig, I’m just going to assume his entire campaign is going to consist of him shouting quotes from 30 Rock: “NEVER GO WITH A HIPPIE TO A SECOND LOCATION! Vote me Mayor of NYC and just try to pretend those voicemails I left my daughter never happened, m’kay?”
