The eldest of the Baldwin brothers (Daniel, William, and Stephen), Alec was born in 1958 and has appeared on film, stage, and television. His 25-plus year career on the Silver Screen includes iconic roles in films including Beetlejuice, The Hunt for Red October, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Cooler, The Aviator, and The Departed.
Alec’s TV career began in 1980; over the years he has appeared in the night-time soap opera Knots Landing, Hotel, Nip/Tuck, and Will & Grace. And from 2006–2013, he has starred as Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock.
In 2002, Baldwin ended his nine-year marriage to Hollywood starlet Kim Basinger after a lengthy, well-publicized acrimonious divorce. In the summer of 2011, Baldwin began dating Spanish born Hilaria Thomas, a yoga instructor who is 26 years his junior. They were married on June 30, 2012, in New York City.
Baldwin has, for reasons of the heart and health, adopted his wife’s healthy lifestyle and cut out sugar, alcohol, and carbs since the two started dating.
