Alec Baldwin leaves angry messages

April 20th, 2007 // 247 Comments

If you haven’t already heard it, this is the message Alec Baldwin left on his 11-year-old daughter’s voice mail. I don’t get what everybody’s making such a big deal over. This sounds like a pretty normal father daughter conversation. Although I am surprised he lets her out of the cage long enough to use a phone.

UPDATE: In the shocker of all shockers, Alec Baldwin has apologized for the message on his official site. Although it’s less of an apology and more of an self-justification. He writes:

“Thank you to everyone who has posted messages of suppport and understanding. Naturally, it is not best for a parent to lose their temper with their child. Everyone who knows me privately knows that I have endured a great deal over the last several years in my custody litigation.

Everyone who knows me privately knows that certain people will go to any lengths to embarass me and to disrupt my relationship with my daughter. In such public cases, your opponents attempt to take a picture of you on your worst day and insist that this is who you are as a person.

Outside the doors of divorce court, I have friends, I have respect from people I work with and I have a normal relationship with my daughter. All of that is threatened whenever one enters a court room.

Although I have been told by numerous people not to worry too much, as all parents lose their patience with their kids, I am most saddened that this was released to the media because of what it does to a child.

I’m sorry, as everyone who knows me is aware, for losing my temper with my child. I have been driven to the edge by parental alienation for many years now. You have to go through this to understand. ( Although I hope you never do.)

I am sorry for what happened. But I am equally sorry that a court order was violated, which had deliberately been put under seal in this case. Once my book is published, I’m sure more people will understand the incredible strains created by parental alienation.

In the meantime, I’m sorry to anyone who’s taken offense from this episode.”

    I could’ve gone “First” but then decided not to :)

  3. guymorgan

    #2 that and you not actually being ‘first’ :)

    btw, snore

    who cares. maybe kids wouldn’t be so screwed up like they are these days up if parents talked like this to them all the time instead of buying 11 year olds cell phons and catering to their every need.

    That’s disgusting that he’s speaking to an 11 year old child that way! I’d be horrified if my dad spoke to me that way and I’m 21 years old! I mean I can see why he’d be angry…but leave the message on her mother’s phone!

  6. edamame

    I’d be furious, too…if my crazy ass ex kept me from my child! Has she even been to rehab, yet?

    Man, those New Yorkers know how to swear better than everybody else…I’d say he showed some restraunt here!

    That poor girl is caught in the middle.

    Prince dumped Kim because “she was too weird”. What does that tell you?

  7. Wow.

    A pig? I’m sure that will inspire her to grow into a fine young lady, like that nice Lindsay Lohan or K-Feds Ex wife.

    Man.

    I put this on my ipod and pretend he’s talking to me. Straighten my ass right out.

  8. edamame

    Way to go, mom. Go public with the family business.
    And then trot your daughter around town so the photogs can get some shots of what a great, caring, protective mother you are!

  9. lina77

    Oh My God! What kind of person calls thier young daughter a pig?!

  10. edamame

    OOOH, I’d like for Alec to fly to my house to straighten ME out!

  11. Precisely

    Wow. That’s some crazy crap.
    I agree with Post 5. He can be angry, but he went way overboard. Calling her a pig? Brat maybe, but pig?
    Again, crazy crap

  12. bungoone

    maybe she’s fat.

  13. edamame

    “God complex? I am God.”

  14. Soh!B

    Holy crap! That’s one kid who is gonna need some therapy!

  15. no1justminda

    Gee, I wonder why she won’t answer the phone

  16. edamame

    My daughter is thirteen, and quite frankly…it takes some serious self control not to tell her like it is sometimes.

  17. edamame

    I meant to say “restraint” before! Yikes! I’m kinda hungry…I was probably thinking restaurant! LOL!

  18. I’ll tell you one thing,

    Tennessee Tuxedo will not fail.

  19. xXrebeccaXx

    #16….I agree that it’s hard to not “tell them like it is sometimes” (I have a 13 year old brother with ADHD)….but that does not give him the right to call her a pig! Maybe he shouldn’t be allowed to speak with her at all if that’s the way he’s going to do it!

  20. checkyourshorts

    to keep this baby drama going on and on and on… statistically, most divorced dads lose interest in about a year, marry and get a new family. i can’t imagine what kind of weird shit they had going on between the sheets.

    and i mean father and mother, not father and ireland. the irony of that name.

    what impresses me most is he doesn’t really remember how old she is.

  21. Someone’s gotta put him in jail he’s gonna hit her (both child and mother).

  22. fergernauster

    Kim is f*cked. Alec is f*cked. Now their kid is f*cked.

    Surprised?

  23. I am

    Nonsense, as a dad he has an inalienable right to call her out on her shit. Of all the “mean” things he said, I take offense to pig – ouch.

  24. bungoone

    i only defend him because i like 30 Rock. but this is completely taken out of context. today is the 20th, i wonder how that meeting is going…

  25. brittany1202

    It’s mean, yes, but I don’t deny my dad would probably leave a similar message on my phone. It may not be the best way to go about it but then again niether is how parents raise their kids in hollywood to get anything they want whenever they want it. I’d rather see a parent putting some restraint on their child then just letting them grow up to be Paris Hilton. He shouldn’t have called her a pig or cursed so much since she IS 11 yrs old but he also can’t expect to have a ton of control if he doesn’t see her regularly.

  26. crestlin

    this kind of poor parenting, insulting both your child and your child’s mother, is probably what made her not want to check in with you in the first place. grow up. oh, and if you are soooo concerned about your child, at least remember her age! idiot.

  27. Jimbo

    I want to send that fat bastard to Iran where life is so much better than here in US. What a butt munch!!! Yes this is boring story, but you don’t talk to your 12 year old kid like that. For all he knows she was in the bath room braffing up lunch like her mommy

  28. WTFiswrongwithUppl

    Cool, he should replace Daddy Spears.

  29. WTFiswrongwithUppl

    Seriously though, who is worse? Him for talking like that or Kim for putting this up knowing what her daughter will have to face at school/in public. They both suck.

  30. mrs.t

    She must be really fat. He’s just trying to help. Y’know, if you call a pre-teen girl “pig” enough times, eventually something will click and she’ll learn to either put down the Twinkies or (as Jimbo poited out), puke them up and stay nice and skinny for Daddy.

  31. MrSemprini

    I have a suppository for Mr. Baldwin. It looks a lot like a grenade but I really think it will help him. Or me, really.

  32. mrs.t

    Jimbo POINTED out*

  33. BigJim

    Look at the bright side. At least he didn’t leave a message like: “Oh, sweetie, you are so much prettier than your mommy. I can’t wait to come up and see you for special daddy-daughter snuggles. Did you get the frilly pink lingerie I sent you? Make sure you wear it…”

    Now that would be gross.

  34. rhnee

    this is sad. The worse thing is that i am so sure that he is not the only sorry man on this earth that does that kind of idiotic crap. Celebrities (although he is not much of one anymore) should come with a handbook of what to and not to do or your celebrity status will be taken away, and everyone within reachin distance gets to slap them. Obviously Brit, Lindsay, Paris, Nicole and the Weird Olsens would be slapped continuously. And Scary Mary from the Spice Girls for wearing those horrible pink pants in public. Instead of slapping Paris, I would get a sharp object and puncture her inflatable breasts!

  35. veggi

    32. Are you being dirty? Jimbo, are you pointing out again? Keep that thing down.

  36. tits_on_snack

    Yeah he’s being a douche but at the same time I’m a firm believer that parents are way too easy on their fucking spoiled brat, cellphone-toting, can’t-spank-me kids these days. I completely agree with comment #4, and comment #25. If I was pulling some stupid shit with my parents at 11 years old, I would damn well expect them to rip me a new one and use some colourful words to describe how they felt about my behaviour. Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna go sit on my front porch with a shotgun.

  37. D'arcy

    Jeez. My dad was a crazy rifle-toting Hungarian farmer who would snap your neck like a chicken’s if you were caught on his property …
    Ah, I recall those days bright days of my youth when he would chase me around with his leather belt, shouting lovely epithets like “I’ll murder you!,” “I’m going to bash your brains into the ground!”

    *wipes tear from eye*

  38. FRIST!!!

    Wow, my daughter’s 11 and has a cell phone. Sometimes when I’m at work and she’s out of school I try to call her to make sure she got home ok, and when it goes straight to voicemail and I have to worry about her….
    I SOUND A LOT LIKE BALDWIN (but I never call her a pig…)

  39. BigJim

    My dad loved me.

    I mean he really, really loved me.

    Really.

  40. Jimbo

    Veggi – there is no way that thing is point down today. At least not until I get home tonight.

    FRIST – Thanks for the details of your evening last night. It really brightened up my day – Bitch :)

  41. 24

    Wow, I Just lost a lot of respect for Baldwin. what kind of jack-knob treats his kids like that.

  42. FRIST!!!

    Hey Jimbo, I left you a message on the Parid Blunt thread

  43. Jimbo

    @41 What kind of repect did you have for that Hollywood wack job before this?

  44. FRIST!!!

    Nevermind…
    PARIS that is
    I see you got it

  45. babyforrest

    @ 36, sure I agree that some parents are too easy on their kids nowadays, but there is also the other extreme of being a verbally abusive tyrant. Are you saying that is better? Nobody should speak to their kids that way, I don’t care what the 11 (or is it 12, dad? Jerk.) year old did.

  46. veggi

    Who names their fucking kid Alec anyway?

  47. Jimbo

    FRIST – I got it. Read my @40 Loving you!!!!

  48. mztry

    NORMAL kids her age are going to resent the absent parent… the resentment is fueled by the mother… the kid is messed up… the father is messed up…

    GOD HELP THEM!

  49. BigJim

    While not defending Mr. Baldwin, I can relate that it is more difficult to raise a girl than a boy. Girls are just plain nasty.

    For example, my son is 8. He is bigger, faster, and stronger than his five-year-old sister. He also has a green belt in karate.

    Nevertheless, my five-year-old daughter can and does beat the ever-loving-shit out of him on a regular basis.

    It all comes down to attitude. She is willing to soak up a lot of damage just to get one good shot in. When my son sees her coming at him, he’s knows that there is nothing he can do short of killing her that will make her stop. She’s like the Terminator.

    Still, I would never call her a pig. A brat, yes, but not a pig.

  50. FRIST!!!

    Hey, I was just trying to make you feel better.

    How’s the hangover?

    Is there a new post yet?
