Ireland Baldwin Doesn’t Have Daddy Issues, Says Dad Alec Baldwin Is ‘Pretty Incredible’
The 20-year-old model was photographed by Michael Clifford and featured in Paper Magazine, in which she was asked about an Instagram photo she posted that said “Daddy Issues” in the Star Wars font, and if she has them.
Eh no. I grew out of them. My dad is a pretty incredible human.
The tattoo-clad, LA-based model, whose parents are Baldwin and Kim Basinger, also opened up in response to whether she thinks of herself as an LGBTQ role model (she was previously in an almost year-long relationship with rapper Angel Haze before splitting in April 2015).
I wouldn’t say I’m trying to be anyone’s role model. I just support people who are true to themselves and aren’t afraid to openly be who there are and support others who are doing the same.
A passionate dog and animal lover, Baldwin also confessed that it’s at times hard for her to be part of the fashion industry:
It’s hard being somewhat part of the fashion industry and having a disdain for fur. I think it’s absolutely disgusting and heartbreaking. I mean, I have worn brands and admired brands that have pieces that use leather and fur and I’m not proud of it. If I could wear 100% vegan all the time, I would.
