Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Her last name is often mispronounced. The writers on Saturday Night Live (1975) made fun of this fact when she and her then-husband, Alec Baldwin, hosted the show. In his opening monologue, he asks her how to pronounce her name. She answers (correctly) "Bay-sing-ger", with a hard 'g' in the final syllable. See more »
