Oh, the Alec Baldwin irony: The actor walked off his paparazzi incident by having lots of photos taken. 

Promotional, of course, for his turn in Woody Allen's "To Rome With Love." Baldwin had a busy Wednesday, stopping by David Letterman's chat show, then hitting a special screening of the film hosted by the Cinema Society and Disaronno.

While he was joined at the after-party by costars Penelope Cruz and Greta Gerwig, Baldwin's attention was on his own leading lady, fiancee Hilaria Thomas.

Baldwin spent most of the fete — held at Manhattan's Casa Lever restaurant — sharing drinks and laughs with his betrothed and discussing their upcoming wedding (which, by the by, one partygoer told the Ministry will be held at the end of the month). 

Jon Hamm and main squeeze Jennifer Westfeldt palled around with Baldwin and Thomas, taking in a crowd that included Allen and wife Soon-Yi Previn, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Chris Rock, Mariska Hargitay, Katie Lee, Charlotte Ronson, Dylan McDermott and Julianna Marguiles. 

Baldwin wasn't sweating the incident earlier with Letterman, joking with the host (see the video below) about the run-in heard 'round the world.

"Let's get to it shall we," Baldwin said. "You're obviously burning to hold up the cover of the Daily News."

The front page in question shows Baldwin lunging toward the camera man, not looking very pleased with the intrusion.

"I'm forming the letter 'F' with my mouth," Baldwin said of his expression in the photo. 

"And what I’m saying is ... 'What F-stop are you on with the camera?' "
