Alec Baldwin: Weiner's just a busy, modern man

As U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner deals with the fallout from his lewd-photo debacle, Alec Baldwin is offering his take on the fiasco.

In a piece on the Huffington Post, the “30 Rock” star explains that Weiner, who admitted to sexting with women outside of his marriage, is likely a busy guy who's living in a “pressure cooker of self-analysis and public appraisal” because of his chosen profession. As a result, Baldwin says, he’s got to do something “to take the edge off.”

“For high functioning men like Weiner and other officials who have lived through such scandals, who are constantly on the go, that leaves one tried and true source of a reliable high,” Baldwin writes. “The affirmation that comes when someone lets you know they want to sleep with you. Or even cyber-sleep with you. This is sex for many people now.”

For men like Weiner, there’s no room in the schedule for lingering over “Mateus and cheap spaghetti,” as Baldwin puts it. “No time for slowly moving toward one another with a combination of hope and caution, lust and integrity.”

Enter the Internet, which, as he understands it, is not only a great tool for sharing information but also a way for us to send “our thoughts and feelings, our very spirit, over the airwaves.” He adds that “at times, as human beings, we want to attach the body to the feelings, as well. Photos of ourselves and loved ones...Photos used to sell something...Photos to find love...to find sex."

Porn is available, but Baldwin says it doesn't offer what sexting does, which according to him can cause one to believe that the individual is doing whatever it is they’re doing solely for you. Weiner ran into trouble, the actor says, because he’s so busy he forgot that he's a guy who needs total confidentiality.

The Congressman is "the modern, high functioning man," Baldwin says. "The fact that he is married is just one, albeit a huge, factor."

“We tell ourselves that these devices help us communicate more effectively. What they actually do is allow us to bypass the person lying right next to us,” Baldwin writes. “Appointment sex with your spouse doesn't always arrive when you need it most. A modern cell phone, loaded with contacts of willing fellow players, has a table with a red checkered table cloth ready for you at virtually any time.”

In the end, Baldwin concludes, Weiner is “a modern human being” who “ensnared himself in things that modern humans do.”

The actor admits that he, too, made jokes about Weiner’s scandal, but that now he’s “sad for him, his family, his district and his colleagues.”

And it looks like all of this talk about politics (have you seen Baldwin's Twitter feed?), may one day add up to much more than idle chatter. He told Access Hollywood on Wednesday he is open to the idea of running for mayor of New York City.

“I wouldn’t rule it out,” Baldwin said.

This isn’t the first time Baldwin has been interested in politics, according to an interview he did with "Playboy" magazine in 2008.

"I'll put it this way," he said in response to whether he’d run. "The desire is there; that's one component. The other component is opportunity."

Even if Baldwin does take advantage of the messy situation in New York, it appears he isn’t registered to vote in the city, which makes him currently ineligible to run.

Of course, there's still plenty of time for Baldwin to sign up to vote before the 2013 elections. And if his recent tweets are any indicator, there’s nothing certain about his name appearing on a ballot. He wrote on Wednesday, “It's a long way till November of 2013.”

    I have no problem with his personal life as long as he does a good job at his profession. The fact that he lied to everyone about it makes him a typical slimy politician.

    If he said "Yeah, that was me. None of your business. I didn't do anything illegal. Lets focus on my job". I think people would have be a little more cool with it. But he lied to everyone. So that makes him a liar and we have enough liars in politics.

    I think Alec is trying find a reason, like most of us, for finding a plausible explanation for Weiner's transgression. I can appreciate Alec's effort. And it is a decent attempt. However, i can not imagine my dad, my brothers or my son or even myslef doijg something like this. Therefore, 'it is not only stranger than I think, but stranger than I can think". Frankly, I wouldn't want to be around any guy who does this sort of stuff. And if you so, good luck.

    Really, thats what he could come up with? Baldwin has never shown himself to be a master of maturity or discretion and should leave comments on the situation to adults. That a man of Weiner's age feels compelled to photograph his junk is pathetic but to then feel the need to distribute that photo via the internet is pathological. Weiner has shown a lack of maturity and characther that is unbecoming of a man who represents our nation in Congress – he needs to go.

  11. Baldwin's ridiculous

    Another wacky Hollywood celeb in support of this jerk. Were Weiner a Republican I feel certain he would be up in arms about the narcissitic behavior of this idiot who thinks he is above reproach. It does not matter if it's a Hollywood type or Joe Next Door who does this stupid "look at me I am a man" stuff, but it does matter if it's someone who should be held to a higher standard. He was elected to an office and is supposed to be a humble servant of the people. He spat upon their trust and faith that he was a man of substance and integrity and when caught, had the gaul to appear to take umbridge and LIE repeatedly. This is a pattern. He's perverted, and not so busy that he does not have time to work out, admire himself and make time to fulfill his "needs". He has a beautiful, hurt wife at home to boot! Forgive him...ok. But don't rehire him. He has disrespected his office, and our politician's owe us that when we give them the rare privalege of a vote. Baldwin has proven himself once again, to be an idiot of epic proportions.

    It's all really about narcisissm. The Congressman is probably trying to feed his narcisissm every time he engages in aberrant behavior on the Internet. Alec Baldwin, I'm sure, has a heavy dose of it too. While it's not a crime, it usually comes with poor moral restraints in order to feed it. I hope Mr. Weiner gets good help, but to indicate that he should get a pass for his behavior is saying that we should tolerate everyone's immorality, as long as it doesn't interfere with their job!

During a visit to my hometown of Reno in 2003 to work on the movie the Cooler, rumor has it he picked up, and slept with, a young girl from a local bagel shop (albeit an extremely cute one) ... Whether the rumor is true is hard to say, but in this town its generally taken as being so.... The bottom line is, people in power, like mr Baldwin, and Mr Weiner.... think they can do anything, that no one else matters...

    The reason I fell for my boyfriend is because for two years before I met every gut I'd meet would send me a picture of his penis, I asked my mom what was up with that, and she said that there is a thirteen year old boy in all men no matter how smart,accomplished,talented or mature they seem to be, that kid is lurking some where inside waiting on that opportunity to arrive. My currant dude's never shown me that childish behavior that's why I love him so much.

    I just wish the media would move on to more important issues. I find the constant gossip/scandal news to be so distracting. People in this country are ignorant about so many things both here and abroad and while I realize it's more entertaining to talk about weiners and anti-gay lawmakers turning out to be gay – the reality is that none of this changes our current or future state of affairs. We need more news and less entertainment. Ratings may go down, but the number of informed voters would go up which would be marvelous.

I have pics rite now on my phone that I would not want the world to see, out of respect for the person who sent them! I think we are way too puritanical about nudity & s??ual matters & also a bit hypocritical in our judgement. Getting caught & lying to cover your butt is a human response. Weiner should not have forgotten his very public life when s??ting & sending pics, but the person most hurt here is his wife! Otherwise it is a minor incident compared to, for ex. supporting anti-gay mandates, but living in the closet, & being married at the same time!!

    Baldwin's thoughtful analysis of a "modern, busy and highly functioning man" such as Mr. Weiner's case invites us again to contemplate the fast communication and high tech society we live in. As cliche as it may be, technology can help save our life or can destroy us if not being used wisely. It has been known with Mr. Weiner's that not only he was not wise but also he didn't exercise any moral restraint. His scandal is shocking and laughable but its impact is hurtful and sad.

    While I admit, it's easy to be cynical these days, I happen to think Alec Baldwin is very articulate and his comments really make sense. No one is perfect–not even Alec. He certainly knows what it's like to be pushed over the edge (his voice message to his daughter) and have it made public. Nevertheless he's right when he says there is a disconnect between real life and what happens online. It's sad that the unreality has become the "norm". It's desensitizing and that's a dangerous thing.

    Mr. Baldwin,
    It sounds like you've had some experience in this area by the "excuses" you are making for Anthony Weiner. You better watch out .... rumor has it that you may be planning a run for Mayor of New York City. What will the media dig up on you?????

    There should be a law ........Movie stars, TV personalities and Actors
    should not be permitted to run for political office. PERIOD !!

    We have enough actors already in Washington......

      Oh really? Then while that law is being enforced, let's add 'bimbo beauty queens' (Palin, Bachman) to the list, since they obviously have more air in their heads than a balloon and probably less of an education than many of the actors that run. At least Baldwin got a degree in Political Science from George Washington University in DC. Isn't Palin's in journalism? Probably one of the most common degrees out there (along with Mass Communication).

      I stand corrected. While he went to GWU for poli sci, he didn't graduate before transferring to NYU and pursuing acting. Sorry for the screw on on that. I'd still vote for him over Palin or Bachmann any day of the week!

      Well, then Clint Eastwood shouldn't have run, or Ronald Reagan, or Jerry Springer, or Jesse Ventura or others you can list that have run and done well. Heck, Sonny Bono even did well, and Shirley Temple Black did too! It's not the actor/actress part of the person or the tv personality part that ends badly. It's the overall package, and TV/actor/actress parts are just too minimal in the percentage to even consider a reason to not run.

      Politics and entertainment are one and the same type of media. It requires candidates who have megalomaniac behavior and the ability to fool people. To act is to take on any personality as the politicians do. They tell us what we want to hear so they may get elected. They then have power and they do what they want. We are left in the dust. There are no honest politicians. If they were, people would not vote for them. They would not be charismatic enough. A sad reality.

      I think he makes some valid points. Weiner did something that millions of others do or will do...flirt using their cell phone. Sure, he's married and that is bad, but we are not privey to the details of his relationship so maybe we shouldn't be so judgemental.

      I agree. He does make some valid points. And yes, millions more will photograph their own genitalia and email it to others. If y'all think that it's only high powered politicians who do it, then simply continue to keep your heads buried in the sand. They're just the only ones getting caught and having it publicized.

      What does he mean by modern? that he can expose himself on the net ? Please....that is not modernity...If Baldwin qualifies for something, it is not character evaluation. Who screams on the phone calling his daughter a pig ? another modern man?

      'More excuses', actually there is a lot more of that going on than you apparently realize. It is very very common. Good? I guess it depends on who you are if you want that type of thing or not.

      You say another Hollywood personality with no morals. Congress is asking for him to resign. My question to them is why they didn't ask Bill Clinton to resign when he did what he did with Monica, which is far worse than what this politician has done. They impeached Clinton but didn't follow through to remove him from office. Morals in a politician's life wasn't always there. They have hid everything forever. Recently they have been on the spotlight of scandals just as the entertainers of our country.
