Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger played lovers in the 1991 romantic comedy “The Marrying Man.” The film follows the story of a millionaire playboy (Baldwin) who is about to marry the daughter of Hollywood’s most powerful man. However, he eventually changes his mind after meeting sultry singer Vicki Anderson (Basinger) while on a trip to Las Vegas for his bachelor party. In a chat with People, Basinger said things turned romantic between her and Baldwin as soon as they met for dinner to discuss “The Marrying Man.” “He kissed me then asked me if I wanted children,” she recalls. At the time, Basinger had just separated from her husband of eight years, makeup artist Ron Britton, and had no interest in finding new love. However, she ended up falling in love with Baldwin and the two began a romantic relationship.
According to the film’s director Jerry Rees, Basinger predicted his romance with Baldwin weeks before the pair even met. “I had a picture of Alec and one of her pinned next to each other on a wall so we could see what they looked like together,” Reese told Entertainment Weekly. “And Kim looked at them and burst out laughing and said very softly, ‘We’re going to be a great couple. ‘”According to reports, Baldwin and Basinger shared a very intense love that became volatile at times. “You could feel the sexual tension between them,” a member of the film crew told People in 1993. “It was like a homing missile had been fired. »
