Ireland Baldwin Wants To Be More Than Alec Baldwin’s Daughter

Ireland Baldwin doesn’t want you to refer to her as Alec Baldwin and Kim Bassinger’s daughter. She wants to be her own person.

The 17-year-old model isn’t happy with the comments that have been made about her in recent days. Not only is she fed up with hearing comments about how fat she is, Ireland Baldwin is tired of being accused of having connections thanks to her famous parents.

Ireland Baldwin addressed all of these issues in a recent post on her Tumblr page.

“Of course I get those comments about how I am too fat to model, how I am not model material, how I am an unattractive girl, how I am too tall, etc. I understand that I am not a size .008,” she explained.

Ireland added, “What I don’t fully understand, is what is the good in commenting on a photo of a 17-year-old girl and calling her fat, ugly, etc? Is that helping you in some way?”

Baldwin also stated that she’s constantly compared to her mother, a fact which seems to enrage the teenager to no end. She continued:

“I AM NOT MY PARENTS. My mom is one of the most beautiful woman in the world. She is 5’9, I am 6’2. She is petite and fragile, and I am fit. I have a booty, she has a thigh gap. I am not seeking fame by association. I do not want to be simply know as a model. I am proud to be my parent’s daughter, but I don’t want to forever be known as ‘that rude thoughtless little pig’ or ‘Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s kid.’ I have passions and interests of my own that I want to soon give life to. I want to be known for helping others and being a healthy role model.”

Baldwin made her modeling debut earlier this month with the New York Post. She also landed shoots with both W Magazine and Vanity Fair.
