Following last week's Broadway premiere of "Indiscretions"--Jean Cocteau's play about a possessive mother and a father who unwittingly has an affair with the same woman as his son--actor Alec Baldwin admitted that he and one of his brothers once had an affair with the same woman--but not for long.
"The idea was so abhorrent to me that I got off that track pretty quickly," Baldwin said.
Others at the opening night performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre and the party afterward at Tavern on the Green included Demi Moore, Harrison Ford, Julia Ormond, Drew Barrymore (Ethel's grandniece), Ron Howard, Christopher Reeve, John Waters and the play's stars, Kathleen Turner, Eileen Atkins and Roger Rees.
Ormond said she would like to try her hand at theater.
"I'd like to have a go at some good strong classical roles like Medea and Lady MacBeth," she said.
Waters, who has appeared in some of Hollywood's more off-beat films, but spends most of his time behind the camera directing, said he wasn't so eager to be on the stage.
"I always know that they can see me," he said about a live audience. "So it makes me nervous. I'm too much of a voyeur."
