Quotable Quote:
“My grandmother Eileen was one hundred percent Irish. There might be some Irish on the other side of the family, but we don’t know for sure, so I always say I’m a quarter—a quarter and maybe a teaspoon or two more. And yes, I’m a real redhead.” —Baldwin in an interview with Broadway.com, 10/13/09
