Think Alec Baldwin couldn’t get any hotter? I thought so too, until it was revealed that the man who plays Jack Donaghy on NBC’s 30 Rock also takes his Words With Friends games very, very seriously.
Today, his silver foxiness was booted off an American Airlines flight at LAX. Baldwin’s crime? Supposedly, not powering down his iPad while he played a few rounds of Words With Friends. A rep for Baldwin, Matthew Hiltzik confirmed this as the reason Alec disembarked before the plane took off, telling CNN that Baldwin”…loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight.”
Of course, Baldwin took to Twitter to protest what is admittedly a seemingly unfair policy- he huffed hotly:
Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving.
He then shouted out his Catholic peeps with a follow-up tweet:
#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants.
American Airlines basically confirmed the events went down as Baldwin and his flak reported, saying they refused to “comment on something that might or might not have happened.”
