Before 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin began a magical transformation into a sleek, younger version of himself upon getting married this year, he was known for years as a portly actor with a growing weight problem.
Tuesday’s USA Today profile of Baldwin reveals that the actor put on all that weight initially by eating boatloads of sugar… while watching MSNBC’s progressive star Rachel Maddow.
In the profile, Donna Freydkin wrote that Baldwin is now “half his size, a sleek, polished version of the man formerly known as Alec Baldwin.”
But before the outspoken liberal actor ever began his transformation into that skinnier version of himself, she wrote, “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.’”
