ing a prenuptial agreement next time around. Baldwin said, “The book is really, in some people’s mind, a creed against the family law system, but really it is just a critique and advice to people getting divorced. I share with them what I went through and how they can avoid some pitfalls.” Who better to write about the process than someone who has not only been through divorce, but was forced to do it publically? Baldwin is so adamant to share his story and connect with fans, even after he competed in the hot sun for several hours and won the annual Writers vs. Artists softball game. He still attended Author’s night and was the last author standing. He made sure to sign each and every last book for fans with sincere humility. “I think people who are married and contemplating a divorce, or single and contemplating getting married, should read this book,” said Baldwin. Just over a year ago, he was quoted telling a reporter, “I consider my entire movie career a complete failure.” Today, Baldwin seems like he has made it through to the other side with a fresh perspective on life. When I repeated that same quote back to him, first, he joked, “Well Gina, to give you a really smart answer to that question, it would take longer than my ass can bear on the edge of this chair. I am literally breaking my ass for you.” He smiled and then continued with a serious reply, “I think that comment was made out of frustration, because you want to make great films that stay in people’s memory, and that becomes more difficult as time goes on.

Making films is hard, and good films, there seem to be less and less of them as years go by. They are very fizzy and very exciting, but I am not sure they are things you would go and see again and again.” Alec Baldwin films that have stayed in my memory: Glengarry Glen Ross, The Hunt for Red October, Beetle Juice, The Cooler. The list goes on. Obviously, I am not the only person that enjoys his acting. The Emmy Award-winning actor, who stars alongside Tina Fey and a brilliant cast in an Emmy Award-winning TV show “30 Rock,” was nominated a fourth time this year, for Best Actor in his role as Jack Donaghy. When I asked Baldwin who he thought would win this Sunday evening at the Emmy Awards, he replied, “I have a feeling that Carrell will win, and I hope he does, because for him to stay with that show for all eight years, it’s a real commitment. Carrell has given a big piece of his adult life to floating a TV show.” Speaking of giving a piece of your life, Baldwin is an avid supporter of the Arts, and Guild Hall in East Hampton. The actor will host the third and final installment of the Hamptons International Film Festival screenings at the John Drew Theater September 4 alongside Billy Joel, who stars in the film Last Play at Shea. Gina Glickman is a TV Host, Director, Writer, Executive Producer and founder of GMG Entertainment. Look out for Gina hosting the brand new Entertainment and Lifestyle Series “In The Mixx” on HamptonsMagazine TV!
