Alec Baldwin net worth
Primarily Alec Baldwin has gained the majority of his $65 million net worth from his acting career, which began in earnest in 1980. He has since starred in TV programs as well as some really popular motion pictures. He was fully trained to be an actor, as were his three younger brothers.
Alec Baldwin has during his award winning acting career played some highly varied roles ranging from tense thrillers through to comedy roles. He has been on stage starring in Broadway musicals like A streetcar named desire, as well as been a stand in host for Saturday Night Live from time to time. Perhaps the first TV show he appeared in that got him national attention was Knots Landing in 1984. Later he went on to make guest star appearances in the comedy shows Friends then Will & Grace. Alec Baldwin was even given his own program that was taken off the air following his sacking for being filmed swearing at somebody.
Yet it has undoubtedly been his roles in films that have been the largest contributor to his net worth. His debut film role surprisingly did not take place until 1987 with the release of Forever, Lulu. The following year he played supporting roles in both Beetlejuice and Working Girl. He landed his first leading role in the 1990 film The Hunt For Red October as Jack Ryan. Baldwin performed admirably opposite Sean Connery in this adaptation of this Tom Clancy novel.
In 1991 he played the lead role in the movie Marrying Man, the love interest being played by the woman that went on to become his first wife, Kim Bassinger. Other films he has appeared in include The Getaway (with Bassinger), the 2001 blockbuster Pearl Harbor plus the acclaimed The Cooler.
About Alec Baldwin
Acting was something that was in the blood for Alec Baldwin and his three brothers, though he has achieved greater success than they have. The Hunt For Red October and especially Pearl Harbor been blockbuster movies. Acting in such films was surely something he could have only dreamed off when he was a student at the Tisch’s School of the Arts, or indeed performing a minor part in Knot’s Landing. Appearing in TV shows certainly acted as stepping stones on his way to becoming a leading actor in motion pictures. As an actor he does have the distinct advantage of having versatility in the skills that he can bring to any role that he goes on to play.
Alec Baldwin got married for the second time in 2012. As already alluded to his first wife was the actress Kim Bassinger. The couple were married in 1993, and their daughter Carmen Gabriela Baldwin was born in 1995. They were divorced in 2002 though the marriage had broken down before then.
His second wife is Hilaria Thomas, and they have two sons Ireland Baldwin, and Rafael Thomas Baldwin.
