Actor and producer Alec Baldwin opened up about his past history of bullying women during a lunch in his honor Thursday in New York City.
Baldwin, 59, addressed the recent sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood at the Paley Center for Media in New York City, admitting that he too has “treated women in a very sexist way,” the Huffington Post reported.
“I’ve bullied women. I’ve overlooked women. I’ve underestimated women. Not as a rule. From time to time, I’ve done what a lot of men do, which is … when you don’t treat women the same way you treat men,” Baldwin said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Baldwin came under fire last week for telling journalist Kayla Cobb to “stick to divorces and plastic surgery” after she questioned his ties to director James Toback, who is accused of sexual harassment and assault.
“I knew of certain things, that there were rumors of things happening to people,” Baldwin said at the luncheon with regard to allegations against Weinstein and Toback.
The actor also starred on the hit TV series “30 Rock,” which alluded to knowing about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault through references in the show.
