It’s been more than five years since Alec Baldwin’s embarrassing voicemail to his daughter Ireland hit the web, but the 30 Rock star still cannot forget his feelings for the man who leaked that personal phone call, TMZ’s head honcho Harvey Levin.

“I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him,” Baldwin, 54, said in a recent interview with Vanity Fair. “I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes.”

The voicemail in question — in which the actor called his then 11-year-old child a “thoughtless little pig” — had Baldwin temporary barred from visiting his daughter after ex-wife Kim Basinger submitted the tape to a Superior Court commissioner.

Given that Baldwin’s recently in the press again for assaulting a paparazzo, what does he think of his own volatile behavior?

In the interview, Baldwin owns up to his past, acknowledging that he often “gave the Heisman” to people, sometimes “unreasonably” and “childishly” on his part.

“You have to let that go,” he said of his anger, particularly towards his ex-wife. “Enough time — I mean, it does heal wounds.”

Baldwin admits that he still speaks to Basinger “from time to time,” describing their conversations as “cordial.”

“You know, Hollywood does draw some very strange characters, and then the power of Hollywood and what they can do with it becomes like a blood sport to them,” he said.

In the recent years, Baldwin has had scuffles with two photographers in New York City, plus a highly-publicized feud with American Airlines.

Following his wedding ceremony to 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas on June 30, Baldwin deactivated his personal Twitter account on Monday morning, signing off signing off with a short message, “It’s been fun.”
