Eugene Hernandez brought this to my attention over email, while I was at the Opening Night Party for the Atlanta Film Festival:
Alec Baldwin is a terrific actor. 30 Rock? He’s the bomb. But, as a dad? Maybe not so great… listen to this voicemail for his 11 year-old daughter, Ireland, as reported by TMZ. The sad thing is, as horrible as this recording may be, it’s not uncommon for children to receive the side effects of a bad divorce. My parents split seven years ago, and I know my dad (hey Hank!) would never leave this kind of message. My brothers and I were lucky that way. Our parents had a relatively clean break. But the sad fact is, this 11 year-old has been placed in an awkward position between her celeb parents. As inexcusable as Baldwin’s voicemail is, you can tell his venom is meant for Kim Basinger.
