Ireland Baldwin Is Tired of Being Known as a "Rude, Thoughtless Little Pig"
It's hard to feel sorry for IRELAND BALDWIN. She's 17, she's gorgeous and her parents are KIM BASINGER and ALEC BALDWIN. Actually, that last part is probably something that SHOULD make us feel sorry for her.
It obviously hasn't been a picnic growing up with those two as her parental units. All that family chaos led to an angry voicemail from Alec in 2007, in which he called Ireland a "rude, thoughtless little pig."
The nickname has stuck, and Ireland isn't happy about that. In a post on her Tumblr page, she says, "I am not seeking fame by association. I am proud to be my parents' daughter, but I don't want to forever be known as 'that rude thoughtless little pig' or 'Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's kid.' I have passions and interests of my own that I want to soon give life to. I want to be known for helping others and being a healthy role model." (The post is long, and Ireland also gets into a lot of body image issues. You can read it here.)
