In his new memoir Nevertheless, Alec Baldwin is getting candid about his past.
The A-list actor opened up about some of his life regrets in the highly-anticipated publication, including his strained relationships, instances with drugs and alcohol abuse, and more.
While Alec has a had a rocky road up until now, today he's finding time to wind down with his second wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and their three kids, Carmen, 3, Rafael, 22 months, and Leonardo, 7 months. "Three is a tricky number for us," he told Closer Weekly exclusively at the East Hampton, NY Library’s 12th Annual Authors Night. "We’ve got three who are three-years-old and under, so we’re just laying low."
Staying out of the spotlight wasn't always Alec's strong suit, especially amid his highly-publicized divorce from Kim Basinger in the early 2000s. "I love second chances," Alec says. "I love to see people come back from some adversity, self-inflicted or not, and untangle themselves from a difficult situation."
In the publication, Alec also opened up about his troubled relationship with his mother, Carol, after his father passed from cancer in 1983. "My relationship with my mother hit an all-time low. I attribute this to her fear and economic insecurity as a widow," he wrote, adding that he began to feel isolated from his five siblings as well. "I saw my siblings infrequently, something I look back on with a lot of regret," Alec continued.
In a time of pure candidness, Alec very recently opened up about the infamous voicemail he left his now-21-year-old daughter in 2007.
"My daughter — that's hurt her in a permanent way," the 59-year-old confessed of the fit of rage. "It's thrown in your face every day. There are people who admonish me, or attack me, and use that as a constant spearhead to do that. It's a scab that never heals because it's been picked at all the time by so many people."
