Alec Baldwin, photographed by Steve Schofield. I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice.
I wanted to speak with a gay-rights group that I had researched and admired, so I called its local Honolulu branch. Your name is Nick? Nick, let me begin by asking you a question.
Who would you say, by your estimation, is the most homophobic member of the entertainment industry currently in the media? We talked for a while about the torment of the LGBT life many of them have lived while growing up in traditional Hawaiian families.
We talked a lot about words and their power, especially in the lives of young people. I thought to myself: I want to learn about what is hurtful speech in your community. I want to participate in some programs about that.
And then, like you, I just want to be left alone.
For me, it was actually a great year, because my wife and I had a baby. But, yeah, everything else was pretty awful. And I find myself bitter, defensive, and more misanthropic than I care to admit.
I loved to be out in the city. New York was my town. I like some of your movies—and some of your movies suck, actually.
But people in general had been very kind to me for years. And then, last November, everything changed. Am I a homophobe? Look, I work in show business. I am awash in gay people, as colleagues and as friends. But this is how the world now sees me. Now, everyone has a camera in their pocket.
Add to that predatory photographers and predatory videographers who want to taunt you and catch you doing embarrassing things. Some proof of which I have provided. Paparazzi today are part of a network that includes the Huffington Post and, much to my dismay, even NBC News, in their reliance on tabloid reporting.
They are baiting you. You can tell they want to get into it with you. Some bump into me or block the entrance to my apartment, frustrating my neighbors some of whom may regret that I live in their building.
I definitely should not have reacted the way I did in some of these situations. Do I regret screaming at some guy who practically clipped my kid in the head with the lens of a camera? I knew that guy. This was a guy who is on a bike usually, and when we get in a car, he follows us.
How would that make you feel? I was filled with hope. I had spent six and a half years on a television sitcom. I won every award you could win in television. I got paid well. And people loved 30 Rock. And I loved 30 Rock.Second Prize, Literal Latte Essay Award.
The sense of dread begins to build even before I punch in the code on the metal entry box. The gate scrapes open and I pass through, driving down the catacomb of storage lockers with their corrugated metal doors.
