My friend had a funny star sighting over the weekend. In Dobbs Ferry, New York -- which is a tiny town north of New York City -- Alec Baldwin and his girlfriend pulled up outside The Bagel Authority in his late model, black BMW. After feeding the meter, they went inside and ordered a couple bagels (natch!) and some Snapples. They were dining in, but before they sat at a table the girlfriend called Alec over and handed him some Purell sanitizing wipes. The star of The Hunt for Red October, The Cooler and Married to the Mob gallantly cleaned the table. But not just a quick wipe, wipe -- he went at it, scrubbing the whole table over and over.
Right after my friend told me this story, which I thought was funny -- I like knowing that Alec is a total germophobe -- I saw this in the paper:
A judge wants a psychologist to evaluate Alec Baldwin to determine whether he is fit to see his 10-year-old daughter more often as part of an ongoing custody battle with former wife Kim Basinger... Baldwin was given a week to accept the court-appointed psychologist or the judge said she would select another one. In October, Basinger's attorney said Baldwin suffered from "severe emotional problems" and that he had been accused of domestic violence in the past.
Perhaps they should also test for OCD?
