Hilaria Baldwin has accused critics of “misrepresenting” her accusations of faking with the Spaniards.
Speaking in an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday, Baldwin addressed the controversy surrounding his legacy, after it emerged that he was born in Boston, not Spain and was originally named Hillary.
Baldwin, wife of Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin, has become the subject of much speculation over her background over the past week. The controversy began when a Twitter user’s thread, sharing a clip of Baldwin with a word, went viral. @Lenibriscoe wrote, “You have to accept Hilaria Baldwin’s commitment to her decade-long appreciation, where she impersonates a Spanish man.” In one clip, Baldwin is shown struggling to remember the English word for cucumber.
The New York Times article picks up examples of news articles referencing Baldwin’s Spanish heritage, and highlights an earlier clip of Allred Baldwin David letterman is telling His wife is from Spain. It also describes a biography of Baldwin on the website of a management agency that says she was born in Mallorca, Spain.
Baldwin, 36, says the cucumber incident was caused by nerves because it was his first appearance on live TV, describing it as a “brain fart” rather than an attempt to bolster the Spanish faith. And addressing an online biography from her management agency stating that she was born in Mallorca, Baldwin said it was a “disappointing” error.
Baldwin, a yoga instructor and social media influence, told the New York Times “there is nothing I am doing wrong” and “there is a difference between hiding and creating a boundary”.
Baldwin told the New York Times that she is bilingual and that her English often depends on a strong Spanish accent depending on how happy or upset she is.
Baldwin, who has five children with 30 rock star Alec, said: “Today we have the opportunity to articulate to people who are confused – and in some ways I have been unfairly confused by people.”
Baldwin said she was born Hilary but took her name Hilaria as her family in Spain called her. She said that her parents, who are American, love Spain and took her on holiday from an early age.
“The things I’ve shared about myself are very clear,” she said. “I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and in Spain. My family now lives in Spain. “
Baldwin did not say how often or how long he stayed in the country, adding: “I think it would be crazy to have such a strict timeliness of everything. You know, sometimes there was school involved. It was sometimes a holiday. It was such a mixture, mishmash, is that the right word? Like a mixture of different things. “
Baldwin married 62-year-old Alec in 2012. He shared a quote on Instagram defending himself amid controversy that said: “A lie can travel halfway around the world, while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
Comedian Amy Schumer appeared to make fun of Baldwin’s explanation when she shared a video of herself in a big sun hat and wrote: “I found it. I went to Spain once or twice and liked it very much. “
She also included a cucumber emoji.
