Field Quits Movie After Clashing With Baldwin
Stylist Patricia Field has quit the film adaptation of best-seller THE GIRLS' GUIDE TO HUNTING AND FISHING after clashing with the movie's star Alec Baldwin. The former Sex And The City costume designer walked out of the MARC KLEIN-directed comedy on Friday (09JUN06), according to the New York Daily News. While Field refuses to publicly discuss her feelings for the actor, Baldwin blasts, "When Pat left, virtually everybody on the film was relieved. "She is a cranky, miserably unhappy woman, and I'm actually one of the few people on the set that actually gave Pat a chance. "I did my job, which was to say 'yes,' 'no,' 'yes,' 'no.' I never had an argument with Pat." The film's producer LINDA MCDONOUGH adds, "The situation was strictly one of creative differences, not an unusual aspect of this business, and the producers find Alec Baldwin to be a consummate professional with sophisticated tastes. "Patricia has outrageously singled out Alec, when the producers and the director found her tastes to be inappropriate for this classy film." However, Field laments, "I'm not interested in fighting. I don't want to be spending my time on negativity. Working is not a problem. I have a lot of work, thank God. Life is short. You want to enjoy each day." In April (06), actress Jan Maxwell quit the New York theatre production of ENTERTAINING MR SLOANE after clashing with her co-star Baldwin. She is currently suing the actor for creating an "unhealthy and oppressive situation onstage and off".
