LOS ANGELES, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Alec Baldwin's publicist has confirmed the TV star was kicked off an American Airlines flight Tuesday for playing a game on his cellphone before takeoff.

"Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing 'Words with Friends' while parked at the gate. He loves 'WWF' so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight," the actor's representative told UsMagazine.com.

"The flight attendant on American reamed me out for playing 'Words with Friends' while we sat at the gate, not moving," Baldwin said via Twitter. "No wonder American Air is bankrupt. But, oddly, '30 Rock' plays inflight on American. The real way is United."

Baldwin has won numerous awards for his work on the NBC sitcom "30 Rock," which tapes in New York. He was flying back to the Big Apple from Los Angeles at the time of the American Airlines incident.
