Alec Baldwin Says He Wanted To Kill TMZ Founder After Leaked Voicemail: [ send to a friend ]
Alec Baldwin says he wanted to kill TMZ founder Harvey Levin after he leaked a private voicemail of him berating his daughter.
Baldwin, who has had a few run-ins with the paparazzi in recent months, tells Vanity Fair he "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."
In the infamous 2007 voicemail, Baldwin called the then 11-year-old Ireland a "thoughtless little pig" who didn't "have the brains or the decency of a human being" after she missed a planned phone call.
"You made me feel like shit and you've made me feel like a fool over and over and over again," he complained.
"And this crap you pull on me with this goddamn phone situation that you would never dream of doing to your mother and you do it to me constantly and over and over again."
"I am going to get on a plane and I am going to straighten your ass out when I see you."
Baldwin later apologized for the voicemail and blamed the long battle with Kim Basinger for his reaction.
"I have endured a great deal over the last several years in my custody litigation," he said. "Everyone who knows me privately knows that certain people will go to any lengths to embarrass me and to disrupt my relationship with my daughter."
