Alec Baldwin Blasts HarperCollins For ‘Typos and Errors’ in New Memoir

”The editors at Harper Collins were, I imagine, too busy to do a proper and forensic edit of the material,“ actor says

Alec Baldwin is now going after the publisher of his new memoir, “Nevertheless,” shortly following an intense Twitter spat with producer Dana Brunetti earlier this week over certain claims made in the book.

In a Facebook post from April 4, Baldwin alleged the publisher, HarperCollins, made numerous typos and errors in the memoir, accusing the editors of being “too busy to do a proper and forensic edit of the material.”

“The published edition contains SEVERAL typos and errors which I was more than a little surprised to see,” Baldwin wrote on Facebook. “The editors at Harper Collins were, I imagine, too busy to do a proper and forensic edit of the material. Therefore, the first posting here, in the coming weeks, will be an index of corrections and amendments to the text in order to bring it more in line with my original intent.”

Baldwin said he plans to post an index of “corrections and amendments to the text in order to bring it more in line with my original content.” His first correction concerns a line in the book where he claims he is “in love” with Megan Mulall, Kate McKinnon and Tina Fey. Baldwin said he wants to clarify that he is “in love with their talent” because he’s a “happily married man who wants to stay that way.”

HarperCollins had no comment.

Over the past week, Baldwin waged a nasty Twitter war against producer Dana Brunetti, who served as a producer on his 2006 indie “Mini’s First Time.” In his memoir, Baldwin claimed he didn’t know his co-star Nikki Reed was under age when he filmed the movie.

“I was forty-seven, and it never occurred to me to ask how old Nikki Reed was,” Baldwin wrote. “When I found out, just as we finished, that she was seventeen, I flipped out on the producers, who had told me something different.”

On Wednesday, Brunetti said Baldwin knew of Reed’s age and “didn’t mind,” adding that “to Alec Baldwin‘s benefit, he has been impersonating Trump a lot, so maybe there was a bit of method acting when writing his book?”

In his online feud with Baldwin later that day, the producer didn’t back down, asking the actor, “But really, are you going to continue to deny that you didn’t know she was 16?? I’ll bury you.”

In his Facebook post, Baldwin didn’t flag the disputed passage about Reid as something needing correction or clarification.
