We might have guessed that eventually, Alec Baldwin and Harvey Weinstein–two of show business’s hottest heads–would end up clashing, and indeed, Mr. Baldwin called Mr. Weinstein a “douchebag” this week. It all went down at Cannes, the annual event at which Michael Haneke films coexist sweatily with the continued existence of Paris Hilton; Mr. Baldwin was angry, apparently, about Mr. Weinstein dropping out of funding his documentary, Seduced and Abandoned. Now, The Hollywood Reporter reports, Mr. Baldwin wrote Mr. Weinstein a note at the amFAR gala, leaving a note reading “HW, my apology to you and congratulations on a successful event”–but only after being removed as a co-host of the event. Whew! If nothing else, this is the most press the forthcoming-way-in-the-future film Seduced and Abandoned is likely ever to get. Nice work, gents.
