Stephen Baldwin

Photog Incident NOT

Alec's Fault

EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Baldwin had big bro Alec Baldwin's back last night ... telling TMZ that his brother is not to blame for laying that alleged smackdown on a photographer earlier this week.

The Baldwin brother (Stephen, that is) was outside Katsuya restaurant in L.A. Friday night ... where he gave us some insights into Alec's confrontation with a NY Daily News photog ... and he's adamant Alec has changed his ways.

Stephen says his brother wouldn't get violent without good reason. He adds ... if a pap instigated a "situation" ... any reaction is pure human nature.

Was he there? Given their past history, I think Alec is in the wrong. He has a terrible temper despite all the "Yoga".

Stephen went on to say that it was also Alec's 11-year-old daughter's fault for being a "little pig".

(just sarcasm, of course).

I really hate when people say that just because someone is famous this is what they expect, having cameras in their face when ever they step out the door. And if they don't like it, then don't be famous. It is sad to tell someone they should not do something they are passionate about. There is no other profession where that is the case. Actors and musicians give us the public the pleasure of watching them in movies or listening to their music, and it is sad that the public has almost a rabid mentality to want to know every little thing about them which only feeds into the paparazzi's need to get every last picture of them possible to sell and make money. It is not our right to know every last thing about a celebrity, even though many feel we are entitled to just that. I can not think of one person who would want someone with a camera sitting outside their house 24/7. Or feel that they can't even go to the store without being followed. Then we are the first to vilify them if them if they stand up for themselves, or talk major trash if we see their lives to start to fall apart.

Baldwin's 'excuse' was that the photographer was sticking his 'lens' in his face & was scared he would poke his eye! Well, now how many have seen the picture of the 2 of them? The photog was leaning away from Baldy & his camera did NOT have a protruding lens on the camera. It's clear Baldy hates photographers so imagine if he actually became the mayor of NYC.... he would have to be photographed...nix on Baldy he's too hot tempered & one of these days someone is going to lay him out on the pavement for his obnoxious behavior.

I don't have a brother, but if I did, I'd probably say anything to clear him even if i didn't know.

Anyone can see by looking at any of them that there is something genetically wrong with the Baldwin brothers. How unfortunate that Alec's daughter closely resembles Stephen Baldwin, who, like the rest of them, is an enabler of meal ticket Alec, whose parents, sadly, spawned.
