    Alec Baldwin Cracks Wise, Starts International Incident

    Alec Baldwin can kiss that U.N. goodwill ambassadorship goodbye.

    The cheeky 30 Rock star has become a public enemy No. 1 in the Philippines over a crack he made last week on the Late Show With David Letterman.

    Letterman asked the star about his desires to expand his family, to which Kim Basinger's ex-husband quipped, "I'm thinking about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point...or a Russian one."

    Philippine Sen. Ramon Ravilla wasn't laughing. The politico claims the "arrogant" remark was "insensitive and uncalled for" and insulted millions of his fellow citizens. The former action-movie star claims Baldwin's words have elicited an angry nationwide response, and that the actor better keep his distance.

    "Let him try to come to the Philippines and he'll see mayhem," he said, implying that he'll administer a beat-down himself.

    We're guessing the star won't be popping over for a visit when he travels to Vietnam with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in October.
