ALEC BALDWIN THREATENS TO QUIT SHOWBIZ
Breitbart ^ | 11/17/13 | L o'connor

Posted on 11/17/2013 5:59:27 AM PST by bestintxas

In a post under his blog byline at The Huffington Post, actor and MSNBC host Alec Baldwin suggests that he would quit show business for the sake of his family: "I am concerned for my family. In Bloomberg's New York, forty or fifty paparazzi are allowed to block streets, inconvenience homeowners, workers and shoppers, and make life miserable for my neighbors. Photographers have tripped and fallen on babies in strollers on my block. They have nearly struck my wife in the face with microphones. They provoke me, daily, by getting dangerously close to me with their cameras as weapons, hoping I will react. When I do, the weapon doubles as a device to record my reaction. And then, apparently, I lose every time. If quitting the television business, the movie business, the theatre, any component of entertainment, is necessary in order to bring safety and peace to my family, then that is an easy decision."

Smart Alec Baldwin is a serial bullier. When is someone going to sue him for bullying and the PTSD he has caused?

I'd be satisfied if he just quit doing commercials.

The rest I can easily avoid.

Alec, if you're looking for sympathy... just quit. Take your wife and go to Tierra del Fuego, or someplace else where no one will pay any attention to you.

Sooner or later, you'll come to miss the attention and will have another violent meltdown, but at least we won't have to hear about it.

And if we do hear about it... Alec... we will laugh at you.

It is interesting to watch the Left devour itself sometimes, and it’s hard to have a lot of sympathy for Baldwin. But, to be fair, I’d have the same attitude and opinion about the celebrity ‘press’ as he does. I guess it comes with the territory of making millions of dollars to be an entertainer and he’s brought the extra attention on himself by blowing up in the past. Still, any of us with wives and children would lash out at these idiots camping out in our front yards with cameras.

Group, I know Alec is a big loud mouth, but I’ve always thought he was a pretty decent actor. His problem, like most actors, is that he is not a happy person. Think about it, all actors need the sound of applause for their validation. It’s a vein and lonely existence and even a selfish one. Most actors never get past the ‘high school’ mentality and live through the eyes of the people watching them....which makes them both good actors and miserable people on the inside. I hope Alec gets help....

Hey Alec, didn't I read a few years back about how your "security" would block off intersections in your Long Island home town so that your "motorcade" could travel unimpeded?

He has cultivated this lifestyle in order to enrich himself and now he’s getting buried in it. I don’t blame him for being pissed that he can’t walk to church, grab a danish or a pastrami sandwich at the corner deli or take his family out to to the park or walk to Schnitzers for a marble rye without twenty people jamming a camera in his face. But the fact still remains that he did this to himself and only he can fix it.

Just this past week I suggested to my wife that Alec should just leave the country for a few years. Maybe until this whole thing dies down.. maybe do a few indy movie roles for trade minimum wages. He has the money. If he doesn’t do something, he will hurt someone.

Like so many other narcissistic overpaid mannequins from Hollywood they have a relentless urge to ***ATTRACT ATTENTION TO THEMSELVES!!!***. In show biz, even bad publicity is better than none at all. BTW, back in 2004 didn't he "promise" to leave the US if Bush43 got re-elected?

“His wife almost has been bumped by a microphone”

The wife is a real tool as well. I saw the video, she went out of her way to rat out the supposed perp to Alec, did she think that maniac of a Husband was going to nicely tell the Reporter please don’t do that. She’s an enabler of his hysterics.

While I would not miss that nitwit for a moment he is speaking a lot of truth when he said this in his rant.

"This country's obsession with the private lives of famous people is tragic. It's tragic in the sense that it is so clearly a projection of people's frustration about their government, their economy, their own spiritual bankruptcy. You have no voice in Washington. In Washington, or in any statehouse, no one actually cares what you think. So you post online, you vote with a Roman-esque thumbs up or down on the celebrity debacle of the day. That is your right. It's also fatal misdirection of your voice and need to judge.
