Alec Baldwin Fights Back Against Aggressive Paparazzi
“30 Rock” star Alec Baldwin was pushed to the edge in NYC Tuesday when a NY Daily News photographer encroached on the actor's space as he was leaving the New York City Marriage License Bureau with fiancée Hilaria Thomas.
Although the photographer claimed Baldwin punched him, Alec's rep told People.com, "As Alec and his fiancée were leaving City Hall, a 'civilian' walking in front of Alec positioned himself to obstruct the view of a photographer aggressively trying to shoot the couple. The photographer was clearly frustrated, pushed past the bystander and assaulted Alec with his camera. There were no punches thrown, and any subsequent physical contact was simply Alec protecting himself."
Baldwin also took to his Twitter account to explain what happened. "A 'photographer' almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded."
The actor also tweeted, “Ppl who work in the entertainment industry keep appts w the press on a regular basis. Paparazzi assaulting you on the street duznt count.”
This, of course, isn't Baldwin's first run-in with the paparazzi. He had an altercation with a New York Post photographer outside of his NYC apartment in 2010.
