In the headline and first few paragraphs, reporter Merle Ginsberg suggests that at a May 17 IFP party in Cannes, the actor went around calling Weinstein the D-word because of the latter’s refusal to participate in a French Riviera-focused documentary Baldwin is making with James Toback. But further into the piece, it gets murky:
A source close to the actor parses that Baldwin actually said the mogul… “was an a-hole, not a d-bag.” Both Baldwin and Weinstein’s reps declined to comment.
Never a dull moment with Baldwin. Asked this morning by one of his Twitter followers to describe the Cannes 2012 experience, he replied: “Great films still live here alongside Russian boob jobs. Stalin is rolling.”[Photo of Baldwin in Cannes with fiancée Hilaria Thomas: cinemafestival/Shutterstock.com]
