Alec Baldwin is beginning to ''crave'' Los Angeles after over 30 years in New York City because he thinks he would be able to give wife Hilaria and their six-month-old daughter Carmen a more peaceful and private life. He said: ''I probably have to move out of New York. I just can't live in New York anymore. Everything I hated about L.A. I'm beginning to crave. L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal. I used to hate that. But New York has changed. I want my newest child to have as normal and decent a life as I can provide. New York doesn't seem the place for that anymore.''
Last year Alec's talk show was axed following allegations he'd used homophobic slurs, while his Broadway run in Orphans ended early and experienced a cast change before opening due to his tensions with co-star Shia LaBeouf. The 55-year-old actor - who also has 18-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger - admits professionally, things were ''pretty awful.'' In a lengthy essay for New York magazine, he wrote: 'For me,  was actually a great year, because my wife and I had a baby. But, yeah, everything else was pretty awful. And I find myself bitter, defensive, and more misanthropic than I care to admit."
