I’m sure that all of us who have reared children have said a few things to them we wish we could have taken back, but this one really takes the cake. The interactions I’ve regretted are because I felt as if I had overreacted or was in the wrong. I suspect Alec will regret his words not because they are a vile and atrocious assault on a little girl who is his own flesh and blood, but because they’ve received a public airing.
I’ve never much like Alec Baldwin as an actor because, to me, at least, his overweaning sense of self-importance shines through in every role he plays. After this tirade against his 11 year old daughter, I dislike him even more.
No doubt he will follow the formula: make a weepy apology, blame his outburst on alcohol or drugs, and announce that he’s checking into rehab for a few days.
Hollywood tough love
