HOLLYWOOD VALUES: Alec Baldwin Admits He's 'Mistreated Women' for Years
Hollywood celebrity and Trump-hating activist Alec Baldwin admitted on Thursday that he has “treated women in a very sexist way,” adding that the allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein have been a “very eye-opening experience” for the liberal actor.
According to the New York Post, Baldwin –infamous for his portrayal of President Trump on Saturday Night Live- made the announcement while he was being honored at a media event at the Paley Center, telling audience members he routinely “bullied” women throughout his career.
“I certainly have treated women in a very sexist way. I’ve bullied women,” said the 59-year-old New Yorker.
“I’ve overlooked women. I’ve underestimated women. Not as a rule — from time to time, I’ve done what a lot of men do, which is […] when you don’t treat women the same way you treat men,” Baldwin said. “I’m from a generation where you really don’t, and I’d like that to change. I really would like that to change.”
“I knew of certain things, that there were rumors of things happening to people, but I didn’t necessarily know the scope, when you hear the hundreds and hundreds of women who are complaining about this,” he added. “It’s been a very eye-opening experience for me personally. We’ve got to be vigilant in a new way to make sure that everybody is comfortable and that we get the job done together that we’re there to do.”
