Ire­land jokes about dad’s ‘pig’ com­ment

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Su­per­model Ire­land Bald­win (left) has poked fun at be­ing branded a “rude, thought­less pig” by her fa­ther when she was 11 years old. The 19-year-old model was just 11 when her fa­ther, ac­tor Alec Bald­win lashed out in a voice­mail, which was sub­se­quently made public, when she didn’t an­swer his call. But through a Twit­ter post, she proved the in­ci­dent was well and truly be­hind them, re­ports fe­male­first. Along­side a pho­to­graph of her­self with her fa­ther (inset), who ap­peared to be read­ing a chil­dren’s book called, If I were a pig, she wrote: “If I were a pig ... I would be a rude and thought­less one of course!(sic)”. Ire­land is Alec’s daugh­ter with his ex-wife, ac­tor Kim Basinger. Ire­land has of­ten said she wants her own iden­tity, and wrote on Tum­blr: “I also get com­pared to my Mom quite a bit and this is where I bridge into the point of this whole post. I AM NOT MY PAR­ENTS. I am proud to be my par­ent’s daugh­ter, but I don’t want to for­ever be known as ‘that rude thought­less lit­tle pig’ or ‘Alec Bald­win and Kim Basinger’s kid.’”
