Back in the more innocent time of 2007, gossip monsters TMZ leaked Alec Baldwin‘s angry voicemail message to his daughter Ireland, and apparently, the 30 Rock star still holds a bit of a grudge about that.
The bastion of civility and refined discourse that is The New Yorker recently published a profile of TMZ founder Harvey Levin, and when they approached Baldwin for a quote, and he did not hold back. Baldwin told them:
“There was a time when my greatest wish was to stab Harvey Levin with a rusty implement and watch his entrails go running down my forearm, in some Macbethian stance. I wanted him to die in my arms, while looking into my eyes, and I wanted to say to him, ‘Oh, Harvey, you thoughtless little pig.’”
Balwdin infamously referred to his daughter as a “rude, thoughtless little pig” in a heated voicemail message, after she missed a scheduled phone call in the midst of his angry custody dispute with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
The actor’s final thoughts on Harvey Levin?
“He is a festering boil on the anus of American media.”
This is why we love Alec Baldwin.
