Could it be that Alec Baldwin is a bad actor, but a very good liar? That’s the question people are asking as the sometime President Trump impersonator has been accused of playing loose with the truth in his new memoir, called “Nevertheless.”
More than 10 years ago, in 2006, Baldwin played the stepfather of then-16-year-old actress Nikki Reed, whose character experiments with being a call girl in the coming-of-age film “Mini’s First Time.” Her character’s main client? None other than Baldwin, who was asked to be Reed’s older love interest in the racy film.
In his memoir, Baldwin claims he didn’t find out Reed’s true age until the movie wrapped, when he supposedly exploded in rage at one of the film’s producers, Dana Brunetti. But as Brunetti tells it, it was a completely different story on the film’s set.
“My first indie film was Mini’s starring [Baldwin], who knew [Reed] was 16 (not 17), and he didn’t mind,” Brunetti tweeted. “In fact, [Reed] was one of four actresses [Baldwin] had approved, and her being the only one of those four repped by his own agency, CAA.”
Did Baldwin write a falsehood in his memoir to cover for being a perverted sleaze? Watch this clip to see the trailer for the steamy film, whose producer Brunetti went on to make another famous movie with illicit subject matter, “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
