Alec Baldwin 2

You have a lot of optimism when you are young.
Alec Baldwin

I’d rather live my life off screen and give only a certain amount of energy to the work.
Alec Baldwin

On a television show, precise acting isn’t the order of the day.
Alec Baldwin

My father would chaperone at high-school dances, and the toughest guy in the high school used to want to fight my father. My father broke his hand on a guy’s head once in school.
Alec Baldwin

I have my older daughter Ireland and my wife Hilaria, and I have Carmen and Rafael.
Alec Baldwin

As my friend said to me, when you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you’re older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp.
Alec Baldwin

Have I thought about having more kids? Oh sure, that would be great; that would be heaven. That would be fantastic.
Alec Baldwin

I think I’m just like a lot of people who had nothing. We had to amuse ourselves, so we had to become amusing.
Alec Baldwin

My brothers were funny, and there was a lot of shtick and comedy and nastiness and violence and fighting and sports.
Alec Baldwin

Hollywood does draw some very strange characters, and then the power of Hollywood and what they can do with it becomes like a blood sport to them.
Alec Baldwin

When you lack a certain vitality in the film business, there’s no hiding it. It’s like you’ve had your limb chopped off. How do you hide the fact that you’re missing an arm?
Alec Baldwin

I don’t try to communicate with my ‘audience’. I don’t bother with that any more. I used to try to have conversations with people, but it’s futile.
Alec Baldwin

There are shows that are monolithic successes on TV that nobody in the business ever watches one episode of.
Alec Baldwin

People don’t understand this: if you want to have a really good shot at succeeding, there are doors you have to slam in people’s faces and say, ‘This is my priority, and you can’t depend on me to help you.’ I was never good at that.
Alec Baldwin

I have always wanted to do a show where I could stay home. When you make movies, you might as well take a dart and throw it at a map.
Alec Baldwin

Being able to stay home with my children is what I prefer.
Alec Baldwin

I know some people who live this much more insulated life in Los Angeles, where their feet never touch public ground. They walk out of their bathroom, their living room, they get into their garage, their car, and the next thing you know, they’re at the valet parking of the restaurant or the store or the office. They’re in a bubble the whole time.
Alec Baldwin

I turned popular music on the radio, and I never listened to it again after that, in about 1985. That’s when I switched over to classical music, and I pretty much stayed with that since then.
Alec Baldwin

There’s almost no popular music I listen to now. I’ll hear it because it’s everywhere… Music is ubiquitous now.
Alec Baldwin

There are some times when you make films and you travel places, and the take that people in the business have is that the worst way to see a city is to shoot there, because you work these long 12, 13 and 14-hour days, and you go home to the hotel, you eat, and you pass out.
Alec Baldwin

I’m going to stop giving too much money to charity – the charity is going to become my family. I’m only half-kidding.
Alec Baldwin

Everything I do is about my kids and wife and how we can all be together.
Alec Baldwin

My children are the only thing in my life that makes me happy.
Alec Baldwin

I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible.
Alec Baldwin

I’ve had a relatively charmed life. I loved to be out in the city. New York was my town. I’ve had people come up to me and say, ‘You’re a great New Yorker. You’ve given your time and money to so many New York charities. You’re a great supporter of the arts. I like some of your movies – and some of your movies suck, actually.’
Alec Baldwin

I haven’t changed, but public life has. It used to be you’d go into a restaurant, and the owner would say, ‘Do you mind if I take a picture of you and put it on my wall?’ Sweet and simple. Now, everyone has a camera in their pocket.
