Alec BaldwinIn a recent campaign for the gay rights organization Fight Back New York, 'Modern Family' star Jesse Tyler Ferguson jokingly announced that he and '30 Rock's' lovable daddy bear Alec Baldwin were getting married in New York next year. The campaign's intention is to pressure lawmakers to amend the current laws that prevent same-sex unions, or risk being voted out of office as a consequence of "standing in the way of equality."

Now, Alec has responded to Jesse's unconventional proposal.

"As a result of this video, a vast and malicious whisper campaign has emerged alleging that I can't marry Jesse because I'm not gay. I hear people saying this behind my back on a daily basis – 'Oh, Alec Baldwin, he's straight!' 'He's a heterosexual.' 'He likes women,'" Baldwin deadpans in his filmed response.
