Alec Baldwin admits infamous message to daughter is 'scab that never heals'

By Julia Hunt

Alec Baldwin said the voicemail incident is often thrown in his face.

Alec Baldwin has said the infamous voicemail in which he calls his daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig” is a “scab that never heals”.

The 30 Rock star faced a backlash in 2007 when the message to his then 11-year-old daughter Ireland was leaked online.

Alec, 59, was heard criticising Ireland, his daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger, for missing a scheduled phone call from him.

He said on Good Morning America that the incident is “thrown in your face every day”.

The actor said: “There are people who admonish me or attack me and use that as a constant spearhead to do that.

“It’s a scab that never heals because it is being picked at all the time by other people.

“My daughter, that’s hurt her in a permanent way.”

Alec was on the programme to discuss his memoir, Nevertheless.

The actor now has three more children with new wife Hilaria Baldwin.
