Ireland Baldwin isn’t holding back after being questioned about her career

Ireland Baldwin, daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, isn’t afraid to share her personal life. In June, Baldwin joined the heated debate over abortion laws by revealing some intimate details about her past. Whether her outspokenness drew criticism or praise, the former model is known for standing up for her beliefs on issues like women’s rights and breaking beauty standards.

In September 2021, Baldwin showed off her body positivity with a series of bikini photos on Instagram. She captioned her, “I’m embracing my cellulite, stretch marks, curves, eczema, ingrown pale skin, outgrown roots, hairy legs and all the other fun things that make me human.” And lately, Baldwin has been sporting her edgy new look attracted attention. In late August, the star posted Instagram photos of her blonde buzzcut. She captioned the pics, “Don’t tell me I won’t do something because I will.”

Faced with continued criticism that she doesn’t have a real job, Baldwin is showing social media who’s boss.

Ireland Baldwin has clarified her work life

In a recent TikTok video, Ireland Baldwin slammed assumptions that she wasn’t working. She spoke about being a business owner, foster dog mom and screenwriter. She also shared details about the production company she started with her best friend. She explained: “We set up TV shows and we write scripts for films, we work on commercial stuff. We’ve been working together for a few years now and things are just beginning for us. Everyone has to start somewhere.”

Not everyone supported the star. One user commented, “So no, she doesn’t have a job.” She replied, “Not sure which of these don’t qualify as a job but it sounds good bro.” A few people defended Baldwin, with one person noting: “Even if you hadn’t done any work at all, you would still be valid and deserve respect and love and I wouldn’t think less of you.” Baldwin wrote back, “It’s very true … Everyone deserves respect.”

And despite what some people might believe, Baldwin is well aware of her celebrity privilege. During a 2022 appearance on Red Table Talk (via Insider), she revealed, “You have a lot more to prove because you’re always going to have that comparison to your parents. I don’t think I would have ever been discovered as a model if it weren’t for my parents.” This certainly won’t be the last time Baldwin breaks the record.
