Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin's Daughter Speaks Out About Famous Answerphone Message

Ireland Baldwin, the daughter of Alec Baldwin, didn't understand why the angry voicemail message from her father became headline news in 2007, as she just shrugged it off as a family dispute.
The scandal, which Baldwin admitted sent him into a spiral of depression, culminating in suicidal thoughts, was centred on a voicemail left by him, in which he described his daughter as "rude, thoughtless little pig". The 16 year old, whose mother is Baldwin's ex-wife Kim Basinger, has come out and spoken about the whole affair for the first time. She told New York Post's Page Six Magazine: "The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was. He's said stuff like that before just because he's frustrated. For me it was like, 'OK, whatever.' I called him back, I was like, 'Sorry Dad, I didn't have my phone.' That was it."
The voicemail leaked on the Internet and made headlines across the world. In the interview, Ireland also talks about her relationship with her new stepmother Hilaria Thomas, who married Baldwin over the summer. She talks of her positive relationship, adding, "Hilaria and I are really close. She's like a big sister to me, but I feel like I haven't spent enough time with her yet. We joke around, and I call her 'Mom.' But I respect her, it's not like I'm Parent Trap-ping her, setting up booby traps in her room."
