Don't expect Alec Baldwin to willingly appear on TMZ anytime soon.
The actor told Piers Morgan he is not a fan of the paparazzi and wishes he could wash them out of his life – so to speak.
"My attitude is that the business would be infinitely better if all of them were gone," Baldwin said. "If I could press a button tomorrow and flush them all down some swirling sewer vortex I would do it."
Baldwin has had more than a few run-ins with photographers and said he believes some forms of entertainment journalism "cheapen" the show business industry. He also talked to Morgan about his brother Stephen's recent arrest on a charge of allegedly failing to file New York state personal income tax.
The "30 Rock" star said he believes his brother will be fine.
"I don't think he's going to go to jail, I know that he's in a negotiated settlement," Baldwin said. "This was all prearranged with the D.A. for him to go in and make an appearance."
Baldwin also says he won't rule out working with Tina Fey again in the future, as this season is "30 Rock's" last.
"If something came up I'd love to do that because Tina is such a great writer and she's so unique," he said.
