He’s no longer handsome or young and he sure doesn’t know how to be a gentleman, so why would anyone stalk Alec Baldwin? That’s something we would like to know as the Associated Press announced on Tuesday that a Canadian woman was arrested for stalking actor Alec Baldwin. As strange as it may seem to us, the woman was actually in love with Baldwin, a confession she often made in the emails and love letters she sent to him.
Genevieve Sabourin was arrested on Sunday because Alec Baldwin was forced to file stalking and harassment charges against her. The woman’s first appearance in court was already scheduled on Monday, in New York. Baldwin’s publicist explained that stalking issues are very serious, so investigators had to turn the case to the New York Police Department.
According to the actor’s statement, the Canadian woman behaved very strangely in the last period of time, so he was forced to file charges against her. On April 5, the woman was removed by security from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts where Baldwin was hosting a screening of “Last Tango in Paris”. On March 31, she turned up unannounced at Baldwin’s residence in Long Island, New York and even went to his address in Greenwich Village, but the actor was not there. As flattering as this may seem to a slowly degrading middle-aged man like Alec Baldwin, the woman had to be stopped as she was getting way to dangerous.
It is believed that her passion began a decade ago when Genevieve Sabourin and the 54-year-old actor met on the set of “The Adventures of Pluto Nash”. Since then, the Canadian woman has used every occasion to tell Baldwin that she is in love with him and that she wants to have his children. She even begged the “30 Rock” star to leave his wife.
Flash news, dear Genevieve: the guy is already divorced. He tied the knot with actress Kim Basinger in 1993, but got divorced in 2001 after his wife accused him of domestic violence. In fact, Baldwin is now getting ready to walk down the aisle again, this time with his new lover, Hilaria Thomas, a 28-year-old yoga instructor.
