Money was always an issue for Alec's family. He always had to find jobs to help support himself and his family. He was determined to make himself something and go to college and that is what brought him the drive to work so hard. "I worked throughtout the year, first as a busboy, then selling men's shirts...waited tables, and a chaperone for a tour bus company" (52).
Alec not only had siblings and a mom and dad who wanted him to succeed. But he also had a family of his own, he loved them very much but he had his fair share of messing up. Baldwin says, "I wanted the life we have together. I could have never met anyone, in five hundred lifetimes, who is a better mother. My children are the luckiest children on Earth" (260).
"My professional life has been ostensibly, immersed in culture. But at the end of a film or TV project, the word that describes how I feel is not necessarily "renewed." The most experiences I've had as an actor has been in the theater, the only medium I could count on for a reliably satisfying artistic result" (250). Alec Baldwin has been through the movie, acting, filmmaking industries and he has been mostly rewarded by them and they helped shape him into the man he is today.
