William Baldwin Mad TV Daughter Blake Lively Will Play Alec’s Film Wife

William Baldwin may be getting lots of TV work these days, but he’s still no Alec Baldwin—as proven by the fact that his Gossip Girl daughter, Blake Lively, will be playing Alec’s wife in an upcoming movie. “What really breaks my heart is that she’s doing a movie with my brother, Alec—and she’s playing my brother Alec’s wife,” he told E!. “I said to her, ‘I get to play your father and my brother Alec gets to play your husband? Where’s the justice in that?’ And she giggles and says, ‘That would make you Alec’s father-in-law.’” Don’t forget that Alec is the oldest of the four Baldwin boys, with William about 5 years younger than the 30 Rock star.

“Oh great, that’s exactly what my ego needed,” he laughed. “You put grandpa out to pasture during hiatus and go run off and do a movie with my brother Alec and you get to play his wife. Everything regarding the Oscars, movies and 30 Rock, I’m thrilled…[Alec] playing [her] husband where I’m playing her father, I’m not thrilled.” Especially since that means Alec’s allowed to look down when leggy Blake flaunts her cleavage.

Chynna Philips Files For Divorce Friday, Changes Mind Monday

What a difference a weekend makes. Actress/singer Chynna Phillips filed for divorce from actor William Baldwin Friday, only to ask her lawyers to rescind the filing yesterday. But before we assume these two will be replacing Sean Penn and Robin Wright as the will-they-won’t-they champs of the Hollywood Divorce Olympics (the Oscar winner and his wife filed and dropped divorce papers twice before their latest split), remember that Phillips just got out of rehab for “anxiety,” following a concert tour and the public revelation that sister Mackenzie Phillips had a sexual relationship with father John Phillips for ten years.

“Chynna has gone under a lot of personal and professional stress,” said a source for Page Six. “The divorce petition came after a long and emotional buildup. But once it was filed, she realized she didn’t want to lose Billy and asked her lawyers to withdraw it.” Baldwin, in NY filming Gossip Girl, reportedly was surprised by her brief divorce attempt. The couple have been married since 1995 and have three children: Jameson, 10, Brooke, 8, and Vance, 5.
