Ireland Baldwin, 16-year-old daughter of now divorced couple Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, spoke out about her famous dad’s voicemail calling her “rude, thoughtless little pig” when she was just 11 years old.
She told Page Six, “The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was. He’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated. For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever.’ I called him back and I was like, ‘Sorry Dad, I didn’t have my phone. That was it.’ We almost did something funny on YouTube, of me calling him and yelling at him. We were just talking about it the other week.”
She also spoke about her bond with her dad, saying, “I’ve always had a great relationship with my dad.”
The model hopeful added that she didn’t grow up like a celebrity despite her famous parents. She revealed, “I had a regular schedule. I don’t live in a five-story mansion, I don’t drive a Lamborghini…The only difference being the kid of two celebrities is nothing in your life is going to be kept private and you have to watch your back. I’ve had people who I thought were my friends, but it turned out they just wanted concert tickets.”
Do you think Alec’s infamous voicemail was no big deal?
