Alec Baldwin Grew Fat While Watching Rachel Maddow

A fun nugget buried inside Tuesday’s USA Today “Life” section profile of Alec Baldwin: The left-wing actor attributed his former girth to eating a lot of ice cream while watching MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show.

USA Today’s Donna Freydkin noted he’s now “half his size, a sleek, polished version of the man formerly known as Alec Baldwin.”

Before he slimmed down starting in May, Freydkin relayed, “Baldwin would go through pints of ice cream every night after shooting 30 Rock while watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. His diet, he says, consisted of ‘sugar, sugar, sugar.’”
