Alec Baldwin has said the infamous voicemail in which he calls his daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig” is a “scab that never heals”.
The 30 Rock star faced a backlash in 2007 when the message to his then 11-year-old daughter Ireland was leaked online.
Alec, 59, was heard criticising Ireland, his daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger, for missing a scheduled phone call from him.
He said on Good Morning America that the incident is “thrown in your face every day”.
The actor said: “There are people who admonish me or attack me and use that as a constant spearhead to do that.
“It’s a scab that never heals because it is being picked at all the time by other people.
“My daughter, that’s hurt her in a permanent way.”
Alec was on the programme to discuss his memoir, Nevertheless.
The actor now has three more children with new wife Hilaria Baldwin.
