Alec Baldwin Unleashes On Maddow, Media, More In Magazine Essay
(New York, NY) -- Alec Baldwin has a lot to say about a lot of people in a new essay for "New York Magazine." The controversial actor blasts actor Shia LaBeouf, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and the media in general in the critical op-ed piece, in which he also bid "goodbye to public life." Baldwin writes, "I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible." He makes mention of a number of altercations he had with photographers in 2013 and how he was "wrongly" accused of using a gay slur. The 55-year-old actor also suggests Maddow had something to with MSNBC's decision to yank his short-lived show on the cable network after controversy erupted over the alleged gay slur incident. Maddow tweeted a response to Buzzfeed saying she has "never met Mr. Baldwin, either on camera or off-camera."

Baldwin also describes his feud with LaBeouf while the two actors worked on the Broadway play "Orphans" and talks about moving out of New York City for the safety of the gated communities of Los Angeles where public interaction is minimal. Not quite through with New York City, or NBC for that matter, actor will appear in an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: SVU," which is filmed in and around the Big Apple. It will mark his first TV acting role since "30 Rock" ended its seven-season run last year. The episode is expected to air next month.
