"I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes," Alec Baldwin says of Harvey Levin's rude, thoughtless little voicemail leak
Alec Baldwin had quite the busy weekend.
Not only did he marry yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, the "30 Rock" star found time to shut down his amusing, if frequently vitriolic, Twitter account.
Oh, and he also admitted to harboring a homicidal rage toward TMZ honcho Harvey Levin.
Baldwin, who's used his Twitter account to bash everyone from the American Airlines flight attendant who told him to turn off his cell phone before a flight to the paparazzo he had a run-in with in New York last month, powered down his account sometime over the weekend, leaving fans of ill-tempered digital outbursts hanging high and dry.
While the actor's account is now inaccessible, according to the New York Post, Baldwin tweeted, "It's been fun" before deactivating his account.
Baldwin has quit Twitter once before — namely, in December, after his feud with American Airlines reached a fever pitch, he decided to "crash" his account and start anew.
"Let's play a game called Mass Unfollowing," one of Baldwin's last tweets read. "I want to crash this acct and start again. But, tonight at 10PM, NY time, unfollow me."
However, while Baldwin's Twitter followers might be deprived — however temporarily — of his rage-fueled musings, the newlywed is making up for it in the pages of Vanity Fair.
Recalling the embarrassing voicemail that leaked on TMZ — which featured Baldwin calling his then-11-year-old daughter Ireland a "rude, thoughtless little pig" — Baldwin admits to the magazine that he wanted to exact revenge on TMZ's Harvey Levin.
And in typical Baldwin fashion, he doesn't spare the graphic details.
“I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him and I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes," Baldwin tells the magazine.
Wow — hopefully his new bride can teach him some yoga moves that can relieve some of that rage.
Despite his vivid description of his desire to eviscerate Harvey Levin, Baldwin tells Vanity Fair that he's learning to control his anger.
“You have to let that go,” he says. “Enough time — I mean, it does heal wounds.”
And, hopefully, restore one's urge to tweet again.
