It was the voicemail heard around the world: Actor Alec Baldwin, caught up in a nasty custody battle with ex-wife Kim Basinger, vented his rage on his then 11-year-old daughter after she refused to pick up her phone. In the voicemail, which leaked to the press, Baldwin called his daughter a "rude, thoughtless little pig" and seemed confused about how old she actually was. ("I don't care that you're 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you're a child...") Baldwin later apologized, and claimed that Basinger had leaked the recording. Basinger's camp refused to comment, except to say, "The voicemail speaks for itself."
