Baldwin Attacks NY Post Photographer; Baldwin Pal Pins ‘Media Circus’ on Ex-Wife Kim Basinger

Feb 12, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Alec Baldwin attacked a New York Post photographer, yelling “This guy! This guy!,” as a crowd of reporters and police watched, the New York Daily News reports.

Furthermore, a source who the Daily News says is a pal of Baldwin’s told the paper (referring to Baldwin’s ex-wife, Oscar-winning actress Kim Basinger): "This is another example of Kim’s sickness. Alec came back from the hospital and there were cameras outside his house at 2 a.m. Gee, I wonder how they found out?"

Baldwin was apparently upset with the media attention on Thursday, Feb. 11th, the same day that he was released from the hospital after being rushed there because his daughter called 911. His daughter reportedly told 911 that her dad said "I’m going to take some pills. I’m going to end this." Baldwin told police when they arrived that he had only taken a sleeping pill but they took him to the hospital anyway. He later put in a day of work at “30 Rock.”

When he got home and found the press waiting for him, the Daily News says, Baldwin grabbed photographer Tim Wiencis by the neck. Police pulled him off and no charges were filed.

  1. Poor Alec Baldwin. Pathetic Kim Bassinger just won’t let go until she destroys his great talent. The better he does, the harder she fights to take it all away.

  2. Just keep poking the bear with a sharp stick and he’s bound to do something. Look, Alec Baldwin can be a colossal jerk, we’ve all seen that so it’s never a surprise when he pops off after somebody gets in his face. And he didn’t gain many points with women by coming out and saying his ex-wife is a complete shrew, even if it is true because that’s just “ungentlemanly”. Frankly, having dealt with some ex-wife issues involving kids myself, I wouldn’t blame him if he took a bottle of Ambien with a fifth of Wild Turkey as a chaser at some point. We’ve all been there, buddy. Just remember this – YOU have a perpetual Emmy nomination every year you keep your current job. YOU are on TV every week. YOU are making money (which, granted, a decent portion of which gets funneled to her but still…). So enjoy your success as much as you can because it’ll just drive her nuts and try to take some pleasure & comfort from that.
    Thus endeth the lesson…..

  3. Baldwin blew a gasket when the photographer who is a very nice guy, asked Baldwin, “How’s your daughter doing?’. Instead of Baldwin replying “oh she’s fine” or no reply at all, Baldwin flew into a fit of uncontrolled rage. Later Baldwin was seen screaming at police officers in the lobby of his building, then Baldwin shoved a police officer as the actor rushed past the cop and attacked the photographer until the cops eventually stepped-in. Baldwin obviously has friends in high places that keep his Bi-polar episodes from getting him in deep trouble. Someday someone is going to get seriously hurt by Baldwin.

  4. Theres a very easy way for reporter like this to stay heathy. KEEP YOU CAMERA’S AND MICROPHONES OUT OF MY FACE YOU IMBECILE.

  5. Baldwin you Douche bag. If you weren’t so hopped up on drugs you wouldn’t want to stab a photographer with your keys or go ballistic at the mere mention of your daughter. Bad Father. Bad Husband. Bad actor. Bad breath too, you washed up driftwood of a person. An actor hahahaha. As if. Never really was is more like it. You are really just a Long Island A-hole who genetically has no capacity for manners. You alone described yourself as a failure and you were right probably for the first time in your life. Of was that a PR stunt too. You spoiled creep. You’re lucky that photographer didn’t bash your stupid fat face in. You old windbag creep.
