Alec Baldwin Threatens British Tabloid Writer Over Twitter For Writing Lies About His Wife

  • Alec Baldwin blew his top on Twitter yesterday at George Stark, a writer for the UK’s Daily Mail, who erroneously claimed his pregnant wife, Hilaria Thomas, was tweeting during the funeral for James Gandolfini.  The “30 Rock” star’s expletive-ridden tweets included threats to put his foot up Stark’s ass and tweet at his funeral. Oh, Alec. You’re always good for a temper tantrum. He appears to have since deleted his Twitter account entirely.  [World Of Wonder]
