Alec Baldwin wants to stop acting - which is the main theme of his interview for Playboy Magazine.
"I don't have any interest in acting anymore," says Baldwin in the December issue of Men's Journal. At 51, he points out, "I'm not young, but I have time to do something else."
The actor says he was "done" with his career in 2012 and would retire at 30 Rock's wrap party. As for the big screen, he notes, "The goal of movie-making is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that."
Maybe that will change with his new Meryl Streep film, It's Complicated.
