Alec Baldwin 3

I know there’s an impression that I’m someone who seeks to have violent confrontations with people. I don’t. Do I regret screaming at some guy who practically clipped my kid in the head with the lens of a camera? Yeah, I probably do, because it’s only caused me problems.
Alec Baldwin

I won every award you could win in television. I got paid well. And people loved ’30 Rock’. And I loved ’30 Rock’. I mean, sometimes you do a show that’s a hit show, and you hate it.
Alec Baldwin

I want to go make a movie and be very present for that and give it everything I have, and after we’re done, then the rest of the time is mine.
Alec Baldwin

I started out as an actor, where you seek to understand yourself using the words of great writers and collaborating with other creative people. Then I slid into show business, where you seek only an audience’s approval whether you deserve it or not.
Alec Baldwin

I worked all the time. Every moment I wasn’t working, I was home with my family. I got divorced. And now I’m doing it all over again, and I’ve learned that the key is, I’ve got to work less.
Alec Baldwin

I need to be home more. That’s the goal now. I have a steady flow of things people want me to do.
Alec Baldwin

Everything I hated about L.A. I’m beginning to crave. L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal. I used to hate that.
Alec Baldwin

Am I a homophobe? Look, I work in show business. I am awash in gay people, as colleagues and as friends.
Alec Baldwin

I’m doing ‘Rock of Ages’ one day, making out with Russell Brand. Soon after that, I’m advocating with Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Cynthia Nixon for marriage equality.
Alec Baldwin

It’s good-bye to public life in the way that you try to communicate with an audience playfully, like we’re friends, beyond the work you are actually paid for.
Alec Baldwin

There’s a way I could have done things differently. I know that. If I offended anyone along the way, I do apologize.
Alec Baldwin

I think Rachel Maddow is quite good at what she does. I also think she’s a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air.
Alec Baldwin

I find myself bitter, defensive, and more misanthropic than I care to admit.
Alec Baldwin

My goal was always to take a talk show to the network. I never wanted to be on MSNBC.
Alec Baldwin

I did not have a happy family life a few years ago. I was divorced, and I was very alienated from my daughter, and I was out there cutting every ribbon and running around New York hosting events for different causes to supplant my loss because I didn’t have a family to go home to. Now I don’t want to be Mr. Show Business anymore.
Alec Baldwin

I just can’t live in New York anymore.
Alec Baldwin

I went to Jimmy Gandolfini’s funeral, and when I was there, I realized Jimmy Gandolfini didn’t have Twitter.
Alec Baldwin

My whole life is classical now. Except my wife. I don’t have a classical wife. I have a classy wife, but I don’t have a classical wife.
Alec Baldwin

Everybody had posters in their room; everybody had the four symbols of Zeppelin on the wall and all that.
Alec Baldwin

I’m not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy – and they ask you to do that, most of the time – there’s some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like.
Alec Baldwin

‘The Apprentice’ was a huge success, and Trump was a huge television star who managed to trick people into thinking he was the guy from the show.
Alec Baldwin

The Trump name is now going to mean something else.
Alec Baldwin

I want my weekends back so I can be with my kids.
Alec Baldwin

All actors have a significant amount of vanity about work, and necessarily so. Things they will do and won’t do, and I’ve completely lost all of that. I don’t care.
Alec Baldwin

I think about how much I used to work and how much I used to make that the priority.
Alec Baldwin

If I won the lottery tomorrow, I probably would never work again.
