Say what you want about Alec Baldwin, but the man clearly learns from his (very public) mistakes. Sort of.
"If you go through the things I have gone through with the media, like this thing with my daughter, there's only one thing that comes to mind initially: That is how my daughter must have felt to have this played out in public," he tells 60 Minutes of that voice mail in an interview to air Sunday.
"The second thing I realize is, you can pretty much bet all you own that I would never leave another voice mail message for my daughter that wasn't just like something out of a Rodgers & Hammerstein score."
But while the 30 Rock star may refrain from calling his daughter a "thoughtless little pig" on a recorded medium again, he, much to the enjoyment of the public, apparently won't be exercising similar restraint with regard to those on his ex-wife's payroll.
When asked by Morley Safer whether it was appropriate to call Kim Basinger's divorce lawyer "a 300-pound homunculus with a face like a clenched fist," Baldwin replies, "I was being kind, Morley."
Jack Donaghy couldn't have said it better himself.
