Alec Baldwin was the man of the hour at a star-studded roast in his honor Sunday night that drew a slew of liberal Hollywood celebrity attendees, including Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, and even former President Bill Clinton.
The 59-year-old actor and Saturday Night Live Donald Trump impersonator was honored at Spike TV’s “One Night Only” event at the Apollo Theater in New York City, where he was lightly roasted by celebrities and members of his family, including his wife Hilaria Baldwin and his brothers Billy and Daniel Baldwin.
Clinton described himself as a “huge fan and admirer” of Baldwin’s work, and took several shots at the Trump administration during his remarks, according to USA Today.
“[Baldwin] ended up going to George Washington University, ran for student-body president and came back home to New York, where he followed the then-classic path, from politics to the soap operas. Now we know it works the other way around. You need to think about running again — you’ll probably win the next time,” Clinton joked.
