Alec Baldwin arrived late, then refused to go sailing as planned
“It’s 105 degrees outside. [Baldwin] calls me over: ‘Sit down, sit down. Umm,’ he said, ‘I’m not going out on the boat. It’s too hot. It’s 20 f—ing minutes to get out, and you have to go 2 f—ing miles an hour. . . . I’m not doing it.’ It’s like, What do you mean? But you can’t argue with him — he’s not going to change his mind. So I’m thinking on my feet and I say, ‘Okay, what about we go to my friend’s pool?’ He looked me up and down — I’m pretty scruffy — and he said, ‘Your friend doesn’t have a f—ing pool.’ And I’m like, ‘Trust me, my friend has got a pool, and it’s about half a mile away from here.’ So he kind of looks at me and goes, ‘Yeah, all right.’”
I love this. I had to shoot an album cover once in New York. I rented my friends giant loft in Chinatown and had all these shots planned there. The singer had like, three stylists, and they walked in and say "we have to leave, there's a cat here and she's allergic" I called a photographer friend in the lower east side and within 20 minutes we were crammed in her apartment setting up food and clothes. I shot the whole thing on the street around there and it turned out to be one of my favorites shoots. I've banned cats from my shoots ever since.
