Alec Baldwin discusses some pretty violent fantasies involving his enemies in the August Vanity Fair cover story.

The “30 Rock” star, who recently got into two intense altercations with overzealous paparazzi photographers in New York, tells the magazine in vivid detail about how he’d like to have dispatched others who have crossed paths with him.

Specifically, he mentions Harvey Levin, the TMZ boss who posted audio of Baldwin’s heated voicemail to daughter Ireland back in 2007.

“I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him, and I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes,” Baldwin says of Levin.


The actor also reflects on wanting to murder ex-wife Kim Basinger’s lawyer “with a baseball bat.”

As for Basinger herself, Baldwin describes their current relationship as “cordial,” saying he and she speak “from time to time” about their daughter.

Baldwin got married for a second time — to yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas — on Saturday.
