Alec Baldwin is pulling no punches in his new memoir and Harrison Ford, Oliver Stone and ex-wife Kim Basinger are in the firing line.

In his new book Nevertheless, the 30 Rock star settles some old scores.

One of his targets is Harrison Ford, who replaced him as action hero Jack Ryan in the sequels to The Hunt For Red October.

"Ford, in person, is a little man, short, scrawny, and wiry, whose soft voice sounds as if it's coming from behind a door," he wrote.


The feud has lasted decades. Baldwin claims he was still negotiating to return as Jack Ryan but that Ford said "f*** him" because he really wanted the role.

Baldwin, who starred as Jerry Lee Lewis' cousin in the biopic Great Balls of Fire, calls the singer as "a**hole" in the memoir.

Director Oliver Stone doesn't escape for Baldwin's memoir unscathed either.
The pair made the movie Talk Radio together.

Baldwin says Stone "opened my eyes to the Machiavellian filmmaker who would throw his own mother down a flight of stairs if it would help him get his project financed, get the shot he wanted or simply get his way".

Baldwin seems to still hold some resentment towards his ex-wife, Kim Basinger, who he met on the set of the film Too Hot To Handle in 1990, also called The Marrying Man, when she was 37 and he was 33.

While they had an instant sexual chemistry, things soured and they divorced in 2002.

"Life with Kim was centred around the narcissistic passions of two childless actors,' he says now. 'Kim could be funny. She could be a mess. But, most of all, Kim was about Kim," he wrote.

Baldwin blames Basinger for the end of their marriage, saying she transferred all her love to the couple's daughter, Ireland. He says their custodybattle was "like fighting cancer" and accuses her of trying to poison Ireland against him.

Baldwin infamously was caught out calling his young daughter "a rude, thoughtless little pig" for avoiding his phone calls.

In the book he doesn't touch on the scandal that much but writes "I don't give a damn that you're 12 years old or 11 years old or that you're a child or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass."
