Genevieve Sabourin, Alec Baldwin's Accused Stalker, Speaks Out

Genevieve Sabourin, Alec Baldwin's accused stalker, was arrested this past spring on misdemeanor stalking and harassment charges and will stand trial starting November 27.

But now the Canadian actress, 40, is speaking out, sharing her side of the matter in an interview with "Entertainment Tonight."

"He was flirtatious and it was not about work. It was right away something else," claims Sabourin, who met the 54-year-old actor on the set of the 2002 sci-fi comedy "The Adventures of Pluto Nash." Baldwin and Sabourin dined together in the fall of 2010.

"[He was] texting me over and over again for months and months," she continues.

Sabourin also addresses the April incident in which she allegedly showed up outside Baldwin's Manhattan apartment, following the actor's proposal to girlfriend Hilaria Thomas.

"I rang the doorbell in order to get his version of our story," she explains. "Where did everything change?"

While Baldwin says all they shared was a casual dinner, Sabourin maintains that she and Baldwin were in a long-distance relationship for more than a year. And lest anyone cries "publicity stunt," Sabourin inisists her intentions are pure.

"I never wanted to leverage my career based on the fame and the money of somebody else, because for me work is work -- love is love."
