He’s calling take backsies!!
When Harvey Weinstein refused to appear in Alec’s Cannes documentary last week, the star of 30 Rock became vocally irate at the Calvin Klein party they were both attending!
After Alec sobered up, he probably realized it wasn’t a great idea to publicly humiliate one of the few industry titans who could squash his career like an overripe tomato.
Thursday, Alec stepped down as auction leader of a Weinstein hosted benefit for AIDS research so as not distract from the charitable cause.
"HW, my apology to you and congratulations on a successful event."
That was apparently enough to placate the media mogul, who later offered this statement:
“Alec couldn’t have been more gracious… We all lose our tempers sometime; trust me I have, too. We all appreciated his generosity to everyone at amfAR.”
We’re just glad Harvey didn’t lose his temper too and bury Alec’s
career body in the Nevada desert.
Sounds like water under the bridge! Yay!
