Alec Baldwin - Ireland Baldwin hits back at critics

Alec Baldwin's daughter has defended his outspoken nature.

The 'Orphans' star's 17-year-old daughter Ireland - who he regrettably called a ''rude thoughtless little pig'' during a voice mail rant six years ago - has praised him for making changes to his life and insists she is not ''seeking fame by association'' by trying to carve out a career as a model.

In an open letter posted on her Tumblr blog on Monday (29.04.13), Ireland addressed her critics and wrote: ''Just like almost all of you, my Dad has made some mistakes in the past. He has spoken out of place, he has let his temper get the best of him, and he has reacted towards things in ways he shouldn't have.

''I get hateful replies and threats regarding mistakes of my Dad's past. This isn't fair. I had nothing to do with anything that happened back then, so I don't fully understand why I am being targeted. More importantly, my Dad has moved on. He recognised that he needed to change, so he made changes. He is now healthy, happily married with a baby on the way. He moved on, so why can't you?

''I am proud to be my parent's daughter, but I don't want to forever be known as 'that rude thoughtless little pig' or 'Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's kid.'''

The blonde beauty also hit back at her haters, who write ''many hateful emails, Twitter replies, and comments on gossip websites about me and my parents,'' and admits she finds to tough to be constantly compared to her actress mother Kim.

She wrote: ''I have battled many different struggles with self-esteem and body image issues. Modelling can really help you feel beautiful! I also get compared to my Mom quite a bit and this is where I bridge into the point of this whole post. I AM NOT MY PARENTS. My mom is one of the most beautiful woman in the world. She is 5'9, I am 6'2. She is petite and fragile, and I am fit and.... more to love tehe. I have a booty, she has a thigh gap. As she emerged from her teen years, she developed an angular face and striking cheekbones. I am still a teen making my way out of my awkward phase. I am still trying to figure this whole thing out. (sic)''
