MANHATTAN — After police arrested a woman for allegedly stalking Alec Baldwin, the "30 Rock" star took to Twitter, questioning the behavior of the woman who police say sent emails to the actor in which she assumed his last name.
"Isn’t it odd when an accused stalker is in handcuffs, being taken away by the cops, yet smiles for the cameras?" Baldwin tweeted on Tuesday, just two days after police arrested the woman outside his Manhattan home.
The suspect, 40-year-old Genevieve Sabourin, has been charged with stalking and harassment after she allegedly bombarded the 54-year-old Baldwin with creepy emails and showed up at two of his homes and at an April 5 screening event at Lincoln Center.
Several of Baldwin’s friends and followers responded to his tweet on Tuesday, expressing concern for his safety and for that of his new fiancée, 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.
"Scary … none of my business but @hilariathomas listing her work schedule MAY not be wise," tweeted @LauraMeredith. "Too much access?? Stay safe!"
Baldwin’s fiancée, meanwhile, declined to let the stalker situation bring her down.
"Life stops when u let crazy people dictate ur activities," Thomas tweeted. "My @YogaVidaNYC sched is always posted on http://yogavida.com."
"I am lucky and grateful in my life now, no matter what the motivations of certain others. @hilariathomas," he tweeted.
Prosecutors said Baldwin and Sabourin met on a film set in 2000 and went to dinner in 2011. According to an entry for Sabourin on the Internet Movie Database, Sabourin also worked as a "unit publicist" on the 2002 movie "The Adventures of Pluto Nash," in which Baldwin had an uncredited role.
The connection to the poorly received Eddie Murphy movie from 2002 prompted a cheeky tweet from at least one of Baldwin’s followers.
"This is irrefutable proof that nothing good can ever come from the movie Pluto Nash!" @PhillySteve5 tweeted.
