Everyone needs a hobby.

He draws an interesting distinction here- it's one thing to be photographed from somewhat of a distance with a long lens. It's part of being a celebrity. However, when these guys are jumping out from between cars or alleys and getting in your face, baiting you- while you're with your wife and child- sorry, but all bets are off.

I'm no fan of Alec Baldwin but the paparazzi should be shot on site

I'm just surprised the Westboro Baptist Church hasn't tried to snap pictures at Alec Baldwin.

Keep fighting the good fight, Mr. Baldwin.

It comes with the job. Everyone knows the rules getting into the biz. Dude doesn't HAVE to live in LA or NYC.

Baldwin is doing the Lord's work.

I think he showed remarkable restraint.

Look, I get kind of prickly if a co-worker I've known for 10 years asks me if I have any big plans for the weekend. If six of these guys were waiting for me every time I got out of my car anywhere in the city, screaming questions about the 4 pounds I've clearly gained, I'd probably walk around with a charged cattle prod.

FTFY.

Publicity door doesn't just swing one way.  You likes the checks; you takes the bumps.

It's ok to perform assault and battery if you are charming and gregarious afterwards.

Some people just beg for a punch in the snout.

Baby, look at me
Beating up the paparazzi
You ain't seen the best of me yet
I'll show you something you won't ever forget

I got more in me
Keep on comin' and you'll see
When I catch you with my wicked left hand
You'll never forget who the hell I am

FAME!
I'm gonna fight you forever!
I'll fight you sober or sky
HIGH!

When I feel life is coming together
That's when people see me and cry
"HIM"!

I wanna make it to heaven
But I can't stop fanning this flame
FAME!

I'm gonna fight you forever
At least till you forget my name

Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember


/Never Forget

This. Boo hoo. He can go cry in his mansion.

Would be funny if a celebrity would get beat up after picking a fight though

I guess this explains his behavior on airplanes, too.  He things flight attendants look like photographers.!
 
2013-09-13 12:13:44 PM
Haaaaaa, f*ck I love Alec Baldwin.

Any judge should rule in his favor in the future.
It's a fact of life that farking with him will get you touched up.

You don't go into to biker bar and call Marlon Brando a mincing cawksucker, even if it's true.
You don't go into a police station and start taking out ceiling lights with an AK.
You don't spit into the wind.
You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger and you don't fark around with him.

I'd rather see Baldwin take on an endless stream of paparazzi, as Haggar from Final Fight, with his shirt half ripped off, throwing oil drums, boxes and dumpsters.

And I get mad when some guy asks me for a quarter.

But can you spare a dime?

sure haven't: Haaaaaa, f*ck I love Alec Baldwin.


He could drown a litter of puppies tomorrow and I'd still like him. The guy's Teflon®.

I'm gonna go have a smoke right now. You want a smoke? You don't smoke, do ya, right? What are ya, one of those fitness freaks, huh? Go fark yourself.

This. Every job has a downside. Suck it, Alec.
