Baldwin covers the new issue of Vanity Fair and opens up about some of his favorite murder scenarios. Yep, keep reading.
By now you’ve heard the now-infamous voicemail that Baldwin left for his daughter Ireland, you know, the one where he called her a “rude thoughtless pig.” Well, it was TMZ’s head honcho Harvey Levin who posted the voicemail online.
Here’s what Alec wanted to do to Harvey: “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.”
He also described the vivid fantasies he had of the gruesome ways - with a baseball bat - in which he might have killed his then-wife Kim Basinger's lawyer.
Tell us how you really feel, Alec.
However, Alec admits that some of his volatile outbursts in the past, he acted “unreasonably” and “childishly.”
Baldwin claims he has come to have a more philosophical approach to his anger. “You have to let that go,” he concludes. “Enough time—I mean, it does heal wounds.” The actor says he's in a better place, for instance, in his famously nasty relationship with ex-wife Kim Basinger: they speak “from time to time” about their daughter, and he describes the contact as “cordial.”
He’s now married and hopefully a happy man, saying his reason for getting hitched to 28-year-old Hilaria was, “I thought, I’m probably never going to meet somebody like this again, and so I decided I would get married.”
His new wife has him on a no sugar diet and he doesn’t drink anymore, but laments, “Of course I miss it.”
Also, as for those constant rumors that Alec Baldwin is running for mayor of New York City, Alec tells the mag, “I think I do want to go into politics. I really, really do,” but adds, “I don’t know if I will.”
“If I want to run, run for what? You have to stop and ask a lot of whys. Run for the glory? Run to complete some missing piece of myself? I can keep doing what I’m doing for a living now and be perfectly happy.”
