Way back when, Alec Baldwin left a voicemail for his daughter Ireland in which he branded her a “rude, thoughtless little pig.” We called him out for being a douche because she was 11-years-old at the time and seriously, who talks to their kid like that?!?
It was the voicemail message heard around the world after it was subsequently leaked onto the internet. (Thanks to Kim Basinger?) Now, Ireland is speaking out about the incident and she doesn’t sound too pressed about the whole thing.
In a new interview, the 16-year-old said, “The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was. He’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated. For me it was like, ‘Okay, whatever.’ I called him back and I was like, ‘Sorry Dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.”
She went on to say, “We almost did something funny on YouTube, of my calling him and yelling at him. We were just talking about it the other week.”
Now that would have been genius. They totally should’ve done that. Revenge!
