He’s spent the past 10 years making amends.
Alec Baldwin is no stranger to controversy.
With a career spanning decades, the “Saturday Night Live” guest star has battled many demons in the public eye. Baldwin’s new memoir, Nevertheless, details his struggle with drugs and alcohol in his early days ― but there’s one scandal that still haunts him to this day.
In 2007, an angry voicemail Baldwin left for this then 11-year-old daughter, Ireland, leaked online amid the actor’s contentious divorce from ex-wife Kim Basinger. In the message Baldwin calls his daughter a “rude little pig” and threatens to “straighten [her] ass out” after she “humiliated [him] for the last time.”
Speaking with “Good Morning America” on Monday ahead of the release of his new book, Baldwin revealed that the voicemail caused “permanent” damage to his relationship with Ireland nearly a decade after the incident.
