Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin is a talented actor, and one of “SNL’s” funniest guest hosts, but he’s not always making people laugh. In 2007, the "30 Rock” star’s bad temper was revealed after an audio tape of Baldwin going off on his then-11-year-old daughter Ireland was leaked during the custody battle with his ex-wife Kim Basinger. When his daughter failed to return his phone call, he left her a scathing voicemail message: “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. I made an a** out of myself trying to make this call … You have insulted me for the last time. You don’t have the brains or decency as a human being!” Ouch. But Baldwin’s rants aren’t just reserved for family. Since then, he’s also unleashed his fury on several people (and companies) via Twitter. In December 2011, he was kicked off an American Airlines flight for refusing to turn off his cell phone while playing Words With Friends. An irate Baldwin retaliated against the airline by posting several mean-spirited tweets like this one: “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's find jobs as flight attendants.” Most recently, the hot-headed star faced off with two photographers in NYC – one who claimed that Baldwin punched him. Let's hope he uses a different approach if and when any marital disagreements arise with his new wife, Hilaria.
