[37] Charles Isherwood of Variety gave the production a mixed review writing of Baldwin's performance, "Baldwin is an earthy actor with a natural contemporary style, and his hoity-toity faux-British accent sounds more off-key than it should". [38]

On June 9, 2005, he appeared in a concert version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific at Carnegie Hall.

Manohla Dargis of The New York Times wrote, "Mr. Baldwin does with Jake, who, with his shark smiles and thrusting gut, beautifully conveys male vanity in its twilight". [50] Kirk Honeycut of The Associated Press wrote, "Baldwin has developed a second career in films and television by more or less spoofing his macho image". [51] Baldwin went on to receive a nomination for the BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance. That same year, Baldwin co-hosted the 82nd Academy Awards with Steve Martin in 2010. [52] The Boston Globe television critic Matthew Gilbert lauded the hosts performance saying that "The delivery was expert and warmly conversational, like one of those old-school comedy teams." [53]

Marriages

Kim Basinger

In 1990, Baldwin met actress Kim Basinger when they played lovers in the film The Marrying Man . [96] They married on August 19, 1993, and had a daughter, Ireland (b. October 23, 1995). [99] [100] They separated on December 5, 2000 [96] and divorced on September 3, 2002. [101] Baldwin has called the attorneys in the case "opportunists", and characterized Basinger's psychologists as part of the "divorce industry". In his memoir, he stated that he blamed them more than Basinger, writing that "She is a person, like many of us, doing the best she can with what she has." [102]

In his memoir, Baldwin stated that these issues placed stress on his relationship with his daughter. Baldwin wrote that he had to spend over a million dollars, [103] put time aside from his career, [104] travel extensively, [105] and find a house in California, having previously lived in New York, [106] in order to stay in his daughter's life. [107]

On April 11, 2007, he left a voicemail message in response to an unanswered arranged call, in which he called his 11-year-old daughter a "rude, thoughtless little pig". The tape was sold to TMZ, which published the recording despite laws against publishing media related to a minor without the permission of both parents.

[109] During an interview with Playboy in June 2009, he stated that he contemplated suicide after the voicemail leaked to the public, but sought professional help.

[117] The couple became engaged in April 2012 [115] and married on June 30, 2012, at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in New York City. [118] They have seven children together. [119] [120]

1995 photographer incident

On October 26, 1995, Baldwin allegedly assaulted a photographer for videotaping Basinger and their three-day-old daughter. The couple was returning from the hospital and was confronted by the photographer outside their Los Angeles home. Whoopi Goldberg praised Baldwin for his actions during her opening monologue while hosting the 68th Academy Awards. [121] [122]

2011 plane incident

In December 2011, Baldwin was on an American Airlines flight at Los Angeles International Airport, playing Words with Friends on his phone while waiting for takeoff. When instructed to put away the "electronic device" by the flight attendant, he reportedly became belligerent and was eventually removed from the plane. The incident was humorously referenced in the following months in TV commercials for Capital One credit cards and Best Buy electronics stores. [123] [124] [125] Baldwin also spoofed the incident during a cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update segment. [126] [127]

Health and dieting

Baldwin and his wife are pescatarians who eat a predominantly plant-based diet with fish and eggs. [128] [129] [130] Baldwin gave up eating beef in 1991 and is a supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. [130] In 2019, he authored an article for CNN supporting the EAT Lancet report and recommended a plant-based diet due to global environmental issues. [131]

2021 shooting incident

On October 21, 2021, Baldwin was filming on the set of the upcoming film Rust , of which he was also a producer, at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when he discharged a gun being used as a prop, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza. This was reported in the press as the Rust shooting incident. The Hutchins family filed a wrongful death suit against Baldwin for his part in the fatal shooting. [132] On October 5, 2022, Baldwin reached an undisclosed settlement with Hutchins' family in their wrongful death lawsuit. [133]

On January 19, 2023, Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies announced that Baldwin would be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter by the end of the month. [134] He was charged on January 31, 2023. [6] The elevated second charge was eventually dropped after his lawyers argued that he was being incorrectly charged with a version of the law that was not passed until months after the shooting, meaning that if he was found guilty, he would have faced a maximum of 18 months in prison. [135] On February 23, he pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. [136]

In April 2023, lawyers for Baldwin announced that the criminal charges against him had been dropped by prosecutors. In a statement, Baldwin's attorneys said "We are pleased with the decision to dismiss the case against Alec Baldwin and we encourage a proper investigation into the facts and circumstances of this tragic accident." [8] [9] [137] On October 17, 2023, New Mexico special prosecutors would announce that their findings indicated that Baldwin may be guilty of involuntary manslaughter. [138] Rust completed filming in May 2023 and is currently in post-production. [139] In 2023, Baldwin has been associated with four other film projects including Supercell , [140] 97 Minutes , [141] Atrabilious [142] and Billie's Magic World. [143] He also appeared in a cameo on Saturday Night Live in October 2023, in an episode hosted by Timothée Chalamet, making it one of his first live appearances since the Rust incident and first appearance on the show since 2020. [144]

In January 2024, a grand jury indicted Baldwin on an involuntary manslaughter charge. The indictment provides prosecutors with two options for pursuing this charge: one based on negligent use of a firearm, and the other for felony misconduct "with the total disregard or indifference for the safety of others." [145] [146]

Political views

Baldwin is a Democrat and endorsed Barack Obama in his two presidential campaigns. [147] [148] He serves on the board of People for the American Way. He is an animal rights activist and a staunch supporter of PETA, [149] for which he has done work that includes narrating the video entitled Meet Your Meat . [150] Baldwin lent his support to the Save the Manatee Club by donating his time to record several public service announcements for the group, which had contacted him following his role in "The Bonfire of the Manatees", an episode of The Simpsons in which he was the voice of a biologist working to save the endangered mammals. [151] Baldwin also gave his support for Farm Sanctuary's Adopt A Turkey Project and stated, "At least 46 million turkeys suffer heartbreaking fear and pain before being killed each and every Thanksgiving..." [152]

During his appearance on the comedy late night show Late Night with Conan O'Brien on December 11, 1998, eight days before President Bill Clinton was to be impeached, Baldwin said, "If we were in another country ... we would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families, for what they're doing to this country." [153] Baldwin later apologized for the remarks, and the network explained that it was meant as a joke and promised not to re-run it. [154]

Baldwin said in a 2006 interview with The New York Times that if he did become involved in electoral politics, he would prefer to run for Governor of New York. When asked if he was qualified for the office, Baldwin responded that he considered himself more qualified than California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. [155] On December 21, 2011, Baldwin, addressing speculation, said he was abandoning plans to run for mayor of New York City and would instead continue in his role on 30 Rock. [156] That April, he suggested he might change his mind, saying, "Let's see what things are like in 2014. I would love to do it." [157] [158]

In February 2009, Baldwin spoke out to encourage state leaders to renew New York's tax break for the film and television industry, stating that if the "tax breaks are not reinstated into the budget, film production in this town is going to collapse and television production is going to collapse and it's all going to go to California". [159]

During the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards in 2011, televised by Fox, Baldwin was slated to appear in a taped skit. However, the producers of the show cut a portion of the skit containing a reference to Rupert Murdoch and the News International phone hacking scandal. Baldwin subsequently boycotted the Emmy Awards and requested that his entire appearance be removed from the broadcast. Producers complied and he was replaced with Leonard Nimoy. [160]
