Kim Basinger Opens Up About Divorce From Alec Baldwin


Kim Basinger Alec Baldwin

The former couple split in 2002 after nine years of marriage. Ireland was seven-years-old at the time and Kim explains her main focus was to protect her daughter from the negativity surrounding the divorce.

"Divorce is hard on a kid, no matter how you cut it and ours was very public and nasty," she tells The Edit by Net-A-Porter. "So I brought up Ireland in a very unconventional way."

"I just wanted her to be free. If she wanted to have her friends over and write over the walls with pen, that was fine. I wanted her childhood to be full of love and light and animals and friends."

Kim Basinger Questioned Raunchy Film Role


Kim Basinger Alec Baldwin

The 62-year-old actress plays the older ex lover of naughty businessman Christian Grey in the second movie Fifty Shades Darker, due out next year (17). Kim's no stranger to racy roles on the silver screen, having played a woman having an affair in 1986 drama 9½ weeks. However, she initially had some reservations about starring in the new movie opposite hunk Jamie Dornan - until her famous daughter Ireland, whom she has with ex Alec Baldwin, swayed her.

“I’m sure there are people who associate me with Fifty Shades Darker because I starred in 9½ Weeks," Kim told The Edit. "But the only reason I accepted the role (Elena Lincoln) in Fifty Shades was because my daughter, Ireland, 20, insisted. She wasn’t enthralled with the first movie, but she knew the books.

"She said, ‘You have to do it, Mom, it’s really powerful for women. Your character is about a woman’s power.’ At first I thought, ‘Eww, I can’t do that dominatrix stuff, it’s not me.’ But it’s not like that. My character’s strength is more emotional and mental – she shows Christian all his moves.”

Alec Baldwin: 'Baby Number Four Would Be Too Stressful'


Alec Baldwin

The former 30 Rock star and his spouse announced the happy news they were expecting another little boy together in March (16), just nine months after they welcomed their second child, son Rafael.

The pregnancy came as a bit of a surprise to the 58-year-old, who also has daughter Carmen, two, with Hilaria, and he is happy with calling it a day once their latest bundle of joy arrives in September.

"We had our daughter and we said, ‘How could another one of these be wrong?’ Then we had our son, and we said, ‘How could another one of these be wrong?'” he told People magazine. “But now we’re thinking, if we had another one, it wouldn’t be wrong, but it would be very stressful. We’re very lucky, we’re very happy.”

Alec Baldwin Swears Off Broadway Return


Alec Baldwin Shia LaBeouf

The former 30 Rock actor starred in family drama Orphans, but his stint was marred by off-stage drama as LaBeouf was booted from the cast just weeks before the curtain went up following a series of rows with Baldwin in rehearsals. Ben Foster was drafted in as a replacement, and the play won mainly positive reviews, but ended up closing early due to slow ticket sales.

And it seems the experience left a nasty taste in Baldwin's mouth - he was asked by Playbill.com at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts 50th Anniversary Gala on Monday (04Apr16) if there was anything that would get him back on the Great White Way, to which he quickly responded, "No!"

Baldwin explained, "I did Orphans, and that killed my Broadway enthusiasm. I'd do Off-Broadway, but not Broadway."

George Clooney Leads Tributes To Late Ken Howard


Josh Gad Ken Howard George Clooney Alec Baldwin

The Tony and Emmy Award-winning actor, who also served as the president of the SAG-AFTRA performers union, passed away aged 71 at his home in California. Following the news of his death, tributes came pouring in for the star.

Among them was Howard's Michael Clayton co-star Clooney, who said in a statement: "There’s a story about how a young actor met Ken on the Fox lot in 1983 and told him what a fan he was of The White Shadow. Ken asked that actor what he did and the young man said, 'Well, someday I hope to be lucky enough to work with you.'

"Then he told Ken he had an audition all the way across town at Paramount but he wasn't going to make it because all he had was a bike. So Ken put his bike in the trunk of his car and dropped him off at Paramount. Then Ken just waved goodbye and said good luck, 'I hope we do get that chance to work together.' I didn’t get that audition, But I did get the chance to work with him years later. It was an honour.
