Running into Alec – luckily not his fist

I’m a huge fan, Mr. President — but I still might punch you in the face!
Hothead actor Alec Baldin was all smiles for a change yesterday when he ran into former President Bill Clinton on a Midtown street.
The Bloviator bumped into Bubba as Clinton was leaving a luncheon at Standard Chartered Bank on Sixth Avenue, and bent the ex-president’s ear for a bit.
“They’ve known each other for a while,” a source told The Post.
Baldwin — who less than 24 hours earlier was walking around with a hotel sheet over his head — wrapped up his day with an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and the New York premiere of his movie “To Rome with Love.”
The “30 Rock” star’s chat with Letterman addressed his alleged attack on a paparazzo Tuesday outside Manhattan’s Marriage License Bureau — which has authorities mulling criminal charges against him.
“Nobody got punched,” Baldwin told Letterman. “I kind of pushed him out of the way because he almost hit me in the face with the camera.”
At one point yesterday, Baldwin shouldered aside a female “Inside Edition” reporter and rammed his bike into a male reporter.
Meanwhile, lawyers for his stalker, Genevieve Sabourin, filed papers yesterday in Manhattan Supreme Court that said Baldwin not only took her to dinner, but also a show and then back to her hotel room.
Baldwin had previously said he only took her to dinner in 2010 as a favor to a mutual friend.
