30 Rock star Alec Baldwin wants you to know that he would never call a photographer a “c**ksucking f*g” because “anty-gay slurs are wrong.” However, it is apparently quite okay to call a member of the paparazzi a “c**sucking fathead” instead.
We don’t really get how calling a male reporter a ‘c**ksucker’ is less of an anti-gay slur than calling him a f*g but that’s Alec Baldwin logic for you. One slur pretty much means the other if you are directing it toward a man. If you were calling a lady a c**ksucker, that would be an entirely different kind of insulting behavior.
30 Rock star Alec Baldwin is having one hell of a week. First he is suddenly rushed to the hospital on Thursday after a frantic 911 call from his daughter Ireland. Then, after he is released from the hospital, Baldwin decided to take out his family frustrations on a paparazzi photographer outside his apartment building!
An eyewitness told E! News that New York Post photographer Tim Wiencis was all over Alec Baldwin when he came home from the hospital, taunting the 30 Rock star with questions about his daughter Ireland and the strange 911 call that lead to his hospitalization. Ireland reportedly told the 911 emergency operator that her father had threatened to take pills and kill himself during an argument.
At least one source claims Wiencis grabbed Baldwin by the arm while pestering him with pointed questions. Alec Baldwin, apparently at wit’s end, locked his hands on the photographer’s collar and started yelling for someone to call 911.
The NYPD was on scene in minutes to sort things out and reportedly had to physically separate the two combatants. “[Baldwin] lunged for the photographer, grabbed him, and then the police separated the two,” an unidentified source reportedly told E! Online.
No charges have been filed in the incident at this time. As for the whole hospital thing, Baldwin’s rep said the incident stemmed from a total misunderstanding. “Alec was quickly released from the hospital; he’s completely fine and will be at work today,” spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said in a press statement. “If there was a real problem or concern, he wouldn’t have been released from a hospital within an hour.”
Actor Alec Baldwin and comedian Steve Martin have been tapped to co-host the 82nd Academy Awards ceremony. The comedic duo will share hosting duties at the Oscars, scheduled to air on March 7, 2010.
Steve Martin has previously hosted the Oscars twice before, in 2001 and 2003, but this will be the first time 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin will have the honor. Producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman said in a press statement the two are “the perfect pair of hosts for the Oscars.”
Steve Martin said, in typical Martin-style humor, that he is “happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin.” Martin most recently appeared at the Oscars as a presenter earlier this year, handing out an award alongside 30 Rock star Tina Fey.
Alec Baldwin, who currently stars on the hit NBC comedy 30 Rock, said hosting the Academy Awards was the “opportunity of a lifetime.” Baldwin was nominated for an Oscar in 2003 for best supporting actor for his role in The Cooler.
Ahhh, You just can’t make this stuff up! Jennifer Aniston’s been in the press lately, as she landed a cameo on NBC’s fab 30 Rock. Her role was revealed today, and it couldn’t be more perfect. The Stalker’s gonna play a stalker! More specifically, a â€œfree-spirited, â€˜Fatal Attractionâ€™ like stalker.â€ Guess all of that John Mayer shizz was research, huh!
Aniston will play Claire Harper, Liz Lemonâ€™s (Tina Fey) former roommate who shows up and latches on to Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin). Tina Fey’s WAY excited, and says The Stalker has “mad skills”. Hell, YEAH she does! Just ask the exes!!
