Actress left 30 voicemail messages a night – Alec

Alec Baldwin has testified that he never had a relationship with a Canadian actress accused of stalking him, saying that after they met she began leaving dozens of voicemails for him a night and eventually started threatening to show up at his homes.

The 30 Rock star said at the Manhattan trial of the woman, Genevieve Sabourin, that he had a meal with her at a friend's request, gave her an email address and phone number and later communicated with her about acting classes.

THREATS

She began to barrage him with as many as 30 voicemails per night and hundreds of emails that started out as lovelorn and pleading, Baldwin said.

They escalated into threats to insinuate herself into his now-wife's yoga class and to come to his homes, even as he threatened to call authorities, according to Baldwin. "It was nightmarish," he said.

Sabourin says she and Baldwin had a 2010 tryst and a two-way exchange of emails. Her lawyer, Todd Spodek, has said Sabourin wasn't stalking the actor, just seeking closure after he stopped talking to her.

The Oscar-nominated Baldwin and Sabourin, who has appeared in Canadian movies, met when he had a cameo and she was a publicist for the comedy The Adventures of Pluto Nash.
