Alec Baldwin’s memoir Nevertheless dropped this week, his recollection of R-rated independent film, Mini’s First Time has industry insiders outraged with the actor.
The 2006 film's producer Dana Brunetti has accused Baldwin of knowing co-star Nikki Reed was 16 (not 17, as he wrote in the autobiography). Taking to Twitter, Dana slammed accusations Baldwin made which point the wrongdoing back at the filmakers.
“I was 47, and it never occurred to me to ask how old Nikki Reed was,” Baldwin wrote. “When I found out, just as we finished, that she was 17, I flipped out on the producers, who had told me something different.”
Brunetti replied to the accusations producers had duped Baldwin, taking to twitter she wrote:
“My first indie film was Mini’s starring @AlecBaldwin who knew @NikkiReed_I_Am was 16 (not 17) and he didn’t mind,” said Brunetti. “In fact (Reed) was one of four actresses (Baldwin) had approved and her being the only one of those four repped by his own agency CAA.”
A rep for Baldwin did not comment, reports People.
Evan Astrowsky, another producer on Mini’s First Time, claimed to THR that Baldwin lied about having an altercation with the producers.
“What Alec says happened is not accurate. I completely corroborate that,” Astrowsky said. “We were on set every day. The thing that Alec must remember is that Mini, played by Nikki, is a sophomore in high school. I don’t know what else to say, except Alec, watch the movie. As for yelling at us after the movie, it absolutely never happened.”
