Alec Baldwin Quits Twitter, Once Wanted to Gut Harvey Levin with a Knife

by at .

It's been fun.

With those words, Alec Baldwin shut down his Twitter account yesterday, a couple days after his second angry confrontation with a paparazzi member in a week.

Featured in the August issue of Vanity Fair, the actor touches on a temper that has gotten him into trouble on so many occasions, admitting that it's actually improved compared to many years ago.

How so? Baldwin says he wanted to murder the lawyer of ex-wife Kim Basinger "with a baseball bat" not long after that couple's divorce.

He also had violent thoughts about Harvey Levin, the TMZ producer who made Baldwin's infamous voicemail - in which he raged against daughter Ireland - public in 2007.

"I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him," the Emmy Winns says of Levin. "I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes."

But Baldwin says time really does "heal wounds" and he describes his current relationship with Basinger as "cordial."

It also helps that he met Hilaria Thomas, a yoga instructor who he met last year at a raw vegan restaurant and who is now his wife. Did the star ever think he'd marry again? Heck no.

It's "kind of mind-blowing to me," Baldwin says.
