Alec Baldwin Attacked Another Paparazzo, So Fatherhood Sounds Relaxing So Far

By  | 

Alec Baldwin walking his dogs in New York City August 2013I'm about to make a controversial statement here, guys, so bear with me and don't star shouting until the end: the care and tending of a newborn may not be the most relaxing thing in the world. I KNOW. It's a crazy, irrational statement, but Alec Baldwin just convinced me it was true, so I'm going with it. It all goes along with my personal pledge only to learn things from celebrities. And, spoiler alert, I am totally killing it so far.

Anyway, as I'm sure you remember if you're as glued to your computers reading the news as I am writing the news, then you remember that there's a new tiniest Baldwin in the world, and her name is Carmen. She was born to Hilaria and Alec on August 23rd, and Alec didn't spare any time in starting to defend her life and the life of her mother against the prying eyes of the paparazzi's cameras.

This morning, while walking calmly from place to place in New York City like your average fifty-five year old dad, Alec Baldwin pulled a total Alec Baldwin and attacked a guy with a camera. Like…fully attacked. There are pictures of him pinning the guy over the hood of a car, so we know he wasn't messing around. I guess a lot of outlets are saying that he did it to protect Hilaria, and that she was into it — one of his friends even saying to TMZ, “What kind of sick twisted psychopath chases a woman who just got out of the hospital from having a baby into a tea store?”

Well sure. That's absolutely a shady thing to do, but what kind of guy leaves said woman on the sidewalk shouting at him while he goes after the guy just doing his job? Albeit aggressively. Just reading body language, it looks to me like Hilaria is shouting at Alec to back off, but other sites have read it differently, so what do I know. All I can say is, if I'd just squeezed a baby out of my body a few days before, I wouldn't want the depositor of said baby doing anything that would make the cops stand around as solemnly as those ones are.

Apparently both sides declined to press charges, but regardless, I think it might be time for Alec to pick a new favorite hobby.
