(ANI): Actor Alec Baldwin says he has lost faith in Oscars co-host
Steve Martin as he has become 'fragile' under pressure. 'The
Departed" star was hoping Martin's experience as a comedian and
former Academy Awards host would help him overcome his stage terror
before the big night, but Martin is already very nervous.
“I called up Steve and said, ''Do you think we should do this?'' And he said, ''Of course we shouldn't do it!'' He said, ''We'd be
fools to do it, and that's exactly why we're going to do it - to
prove everyone wrong,"" Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“Baldwin's fears were heightened after seeing firsthand how
frazzled Martin can unravel under pressure - after the pair
co-starred in new movie, It's Complicated. I had a lot of faith in
the fact that he had done the show twice before and I thought,
''I'm going to be fine,'' but, having worked with Steve, he scares
pretty easily... he's fragile," he added.
