Alec Baldwin wouldn't mind flushing the paparazzi

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.

    I agree with Alex Baldwin. The paparazzi are so invasive & obnoxious. There doesn't seem to be any restriction on where they go & how close they're allowed to get.

    This Baldwin fellow should lay off the bath salts. A few months in rehab would do him good. The Paps shouldn't waste time following this over-exposed bum. We've seen enough of this no talent, miserable creep.

    I love it when people like Baldwin get in the paparazzi's faces and throw thier cameras into the streets. Freedom of the press is totally seperate from stalking people wherever they go. It makes me sick. Especially when they do it to young kids. How can anyone expect to live a normal life when they have a camera shoved in thier face every second of their lives. Let people live for crying out loud!

    Alec is nothing more than a boring loud mouth talentless hack. He's the worst of the Baldwin brothers no talent show. If I was a star, I'd hate the paps too and tell them to go bug Alec as he LOVES the attention. The paps are the ones that are helping him MAKE MONEY. The paps wouldn't care if he hates them as they love him for making money off him as well. This article is nothing more than a publicity stunt for one reason only: Thats to make MORE MONEY! lol

    Why don't we all give that pompous boor his wish & quit talking about him & his work and maybe he will just swirl away. If you bite the hand that feeds you, it may bite back!

    This is how I would tweak that quote: "If I could press a button tomorrow and flush him down some swirling sewer vortex I would do it." I love hating Alec Baldwin. He's a self-righteous boor. Someone I'd enjoy seeing slip and fall on a banana peel or be subjected to a swirly or atomic wedgie. But I enjoy his work. I think the dieting to appear more attractive probably has made him even more miserable to be around. And I didn't think that would be possible. So let the pappers at him. Happy hunting!
