Alec Baldwin Accused of Lying About Sex Scenes with Underage Actress Nikki Reed

Alec Baldwin is lying in his new memoir about not knowing that Nikki Reed, his co-star in “Mini’s First Time,” was only 16 when they did sex scenes together, the movie’s producers say.
In his new memoir, Nevertheless, published Tuesday, Baldwin claims that when he shot the 2006 indie Mini’s First Time, he was misled by the producers about the age of his co-star Nikki Reed, with whom he engages in sex scenes.
“I was forty-seven, and it never occurred to me to ask how old Nikki Reed was. When I found out, just as we finished, that she was seventeen, I flipped out on the producers, who had told me something different,” Baldwin writes.
That’s not true, says Dana Brunetti, who produced the film with Kevin Spacey and Evan Astrowsky.
“It’s a lie,” Brunetti, who also produced “Fifty Shades of Grey,” told The Hollywood Reporter. “I read it and was like, ‘What the (bleep). Of course he totally knew how old she was. That’s why there’s no nudity in the movie. He knew before we even cast the movie.
“I think he’s been method acting Trump too much and he doesn’t know the difference between fake news anymore.”
The two-time Oscar-nominated producer said the final casting for the role came down to four actresses, and Baldwin chose Reed.
“If he had just said, ‘I didn’t know her age,’ I would have thought, ‘He’s a liar,’ and let it go,” Brunetti told THR. “But when he blamed the producers, I couldn’t let it go. It (makes us look like) we did something unethical or shady or hid something. It makes me look bad. It makes Evan look bad. Does he realize Kevin was a producer?”
“We all knew she was 16. When we discussed it at first, it was a question of meeting with her and making sure she was mature enough to handle the role,” Guthe told THR.
“On the set, Nikki, being 16, would often speak quickly the way teenagers do, and Alec asked me about that at times because he had trouble understanding her, and I would remind him, ‘She’s 16.’”
Baldwin has yet to respond to Brunetti’s outburst.
