Alec Baldwin on Kissing Jennifer Aniston: ‘It Was Painful’

At last night's Tisch on Stage gala at the Time Warner Center, 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin made a very brief stop on the red carpet and hurried away, but not before we leaped over the velvet rope, ran across the room, and cornered him. Sort of like how Jennifer Aniston, who played Liz Lemon's "Crazy Putty" friend, pursued Jack a few weeks ago on the show! Once we had Baldwin backed up against the wall, we asked what it was like to make out with Aniston, obviously. "It was painful," Baldwin sighed. "I mean, every man who's had to make out with her in TV and movies — I don't know how they do it."

But did he believe in the episode's premise that unstable women are better in bed? Baldwin, who has a famously intense relationship with ex-wife Kim Basinger, guffawed and wagged a finger at us. (Phew — we were half expecting he'd yell.) "That's assuming I've been with crazy women," he said. "If I answer that question in the affirmative, that would type a woman I've been with as being crazy, which I don't really feel like doing. But I hear it's true. I hear from my friends it's true." These same "friends" also told him the theory might not hold for dudes, so insane men may not make better lovers, he speculated. "I will say this on the record," he said before fleeing. "I've never slept with a crazy man."
