Alec Baldwin

Hot-headed actor Alec Baldwin will forever be associated with an angry voicemail he left his 11-year-old daughter Ireland in 2007, calling her a “rude, thoughtless little pig.” The tape was leaked publicly during a heated custody dispute between Baldwin, 52, and ex-wife Kim Basinger, over their only child, who's now 14. The 30 Rock star claims he was remorseful to the point of contemplating suicide, but then another phone incident with Ireland occurred in February: Baldwin was allegedly having an argument with his daughter, then threatened to kill himself and hung up the phone. Panicked, the teenager called the police and had him rushed to the hospital, where he was found to be perfectly fine. It sounds like a misunderstanding, but there’s no denying that Baldwin needs to learn to control his temper. Maybe he should limit his conversations with Ireland to email?
