Basinger madeÂ BaldwinÂ feel so poorly about himself and his fathering that he just wanted to “die.”Â
Alec stated, “My ex-wife once said, ‘He’s Saddam Hussein.’ She said that.”
“And I thought, ‘Do I hide myself in cramped underground quarters? Do I like to shoot firearms in a celebratory way? Did I execute whole villages of people and bulldoze their bodies into a pit? What are you saying? Explain this to me.’
“I remember lying in bed, thinking I wanted to die on the spot. I would say, ‘Please don’t let me wake up. I can’t face another day.’ ”
Wow.Â Who would have thought a Baldwin could put sentences together so well.Â That’s way more surprising that that Saddam thing.
