Witness: Alec Baldwin NOT Provoked Before Pushing Photographer
The he said/they said story of Alec Baldwin's latest kerfuffle continues.
The 30 Rock actor reportedly pushed a New York Daily News photographer while going to get his marriage license, but Alec said he was provoked and his rep denied any punches were thrown. However, another photographer at the scene has come forward to — shocker! — defend his fellow photographers.
"They were surprised when Alec came here," Goran Veljic told E! News of the photographers. "He started to push up his hands to talk nonverbal and pushed one of the photographers."
Goran denied the allegation that the paps provoked Alec. "No, they are professional photographers, they moved back...I've never seen something like this." The photographer also noted that Alec already seemed to be in a bad mood and "didn't look like someone coming for a marriage license."
Maybe he just saw all the photographers on the street and that's what put him in a bad mood? Celebrities definitely live pampered lives, but you kinda have to feel sorry for them when paparazzi literally get in their faces all day. That has to get old. And when you're dealing with someone like Alec Baldwin, you have to know what you're getting into when you cross his path. He's like Sean Penn and a black cat mixed together.
What do you think? Do you sympathize more with Alec or the photographer in this case?
