Baldwin's official Web site was www.alecbaldwin.com.
Noted for his disdain of publicity and the press, Baldwin was given the Hollywood Women's Press Club's Sour Apple Award in 1991.
With companion (and later wife) Kim Basinger, Baldwin owned 11 dogs, seven cats and a wolf. The devoted pet owners were honored at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ball during President Clinton's 1993 inauguration festivities.
In 1995, when his wife and newborn daughter were returning home from the hospital, Baldwin got into a scuffle with photographer Alan Zanger. Zanger sued the actor for lost wages due to injuries and distress caused by the incident while Baldwin counter-sued for invasion of privacy. In a 1998 jury verdict, both were found to bear some responsibility for the conflict; Baldwin was ordered to pay $6,000 in damages which were reduced to $4,500 as Zanger was held 25 percent responsible. Baldwin was awarded nothing in his invasion of privacy suit.
In December 1998, at the height of the controversy surrounding the impeachment of then President Bill Clinton, Baldwin appeared on NBC's "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" and made the questionable comment, "If we were in other countries, all of us together would go down to Washington and we would stone [U.S. Senator] Henry Hyde to death." The actor later claimed it was meant humorously.
Baldwin issued a statement on his Web site in April 2007 after a tape was released in which he called his 11-year-old daughter Ireland a "rude little pig" on her voicemail: "I'm sorry for losing my temper with my child. I have been driven to the edge by parental alienation for many years now."
