If you want to read the whole essay, it is right here! It is long, just a heads up. http://www.vulture.com/2014/02/alec-baldwin-good-bye-public-life.html?mid=twitter-nymag. Go ahead and enjoy that roller coaster or you can just read my summary, either way works for me!
Listen this is an extremely well written essay by Alec explaining on how he is treated unfairly, at points I actually found myself feeling bad for him. Then I remembered something. He is Alec Fucking Baldwin, he is the guy who told his 13 year old daughter (well then 13 year old daughter) that she was a pig. Do you guys remember that? I do, I remember it because I was roughly that age and disgusted that someone would cal his child that.
Alec Baldwin is one of the bad guys in Hollywood. In this essay he says that Shia is one of the bad guys and guess what, Shia is a fucking nut, but these two are on the same level. Shia just plagiarizes and puts on weird art shows, Alec attacks paparazzi. Although Shia has been known to get into fights here and there.
Like i said previously this is a very well written essay but I feel as though it is more of a persuasive essay than an actual about me essay. He is trying to prove to the world that the media makes him out to be someone he isn’t, guess what, that is what the media does. I didn’t see him complaining when he was making a ton of money on 30 Rock. Now that he has no work lined up, he is setting the record straight? Come on.
Alec Baldwin will probably get work again but I hope that people don’t buy into this feel sorry for me bullshit. You live in a gorgeous apartment in New York City and have more money than I will ever have. I do not pity you, I also do not envy you. Alec Baldwin grow up.
