Aging in Hollywood is rough: Just ask Billy Baldwin. The actor encountered the stark reality that he's not a young heartthrob anymore when he was cast on Gossip Girl as... Serena's dad!
“So you’re gonna go play Blake Lively’s dad on Gossip Girl?” Alec Baldwin asked his younger brother Saturday on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, after hijacking the microphone from Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson.
“Ooh, that hurt,” Billy said. “Three years ago I would have been playing the older man in her life and now, all of a sudden, I’m playing her dad.”
“It seems like yesterday you’d be kissing Blake Lively. Now you’re trying to prevent other men from kissing Blake Lively,” Alec said, continuing to rib his 36-year-old brother, who has been married to singer Chynna Phillips since 1995.
“I would’ve been Blake Lively’s lollipop three years ago,” Billy joked. “Now I’m Grandpa.”
