ASIA ARGENTO & ALEC BALDWIN TWEET ABOUT INFAMOUS PHOTO: ACTRESS SAYS “I DON’T BLAME YOU” BUT “MUST FEEL AWFUL:

The now-familiar 2012 photograph of Alec Baldwin with James Toback interviewing Roman Polanski at the Cannes Film Festival has gotten another high-profile boost in visibility, with Baldwin and actress Asia Argento tweet-discussing the image.

“I found this pic of #romanpolanski #JamesToback and @AlecBaldwin last week,” Argento tweeted just before 2:30 pm ET today. “It’s so wrong it took me days to post it.”

Within an hour, Baldwin had responded, “But you realize I produced that doc and interviewed Roman BEFORE these recent allegations?”

“I do,” responded Argento. “I don’t blame you. I know it must feel awful to see yourself in that picture, not knowing you were chatting with 2 serial predators.”

C’mon — Baldwin had to know something about at least Polanski’s background, however, and he looks rather cheerful, as he banters with the two over croissants and coffee.
