ALEC BALDWIN on a slippery slope as bad Karma kicks in!
WITH his dream of a political career ruined by his latest tirade, hothead Alec Baldwin has been down in the dumps, pals say.
The Emmy-winning actor – new dad to a baby girl with second wife Hilaria Thomas – is a “shell of himself ” after the ugly outburst cost him his cable TV talk show, said a friend.
“Alec looks like he’s aged five years in the past month,” the friend told The ENQUIRER.
“He’s dour and argumentative with his own family. They worry he’s slipping into a full-blown bout of depression.
“With his new baby, these should be the happiest times of Alec’s life. Instead, he keeps saying, ‘I’ve really done it this time.’ ”
The “30 Rock” star, 55, landed in hot water repeatedly in 2013 – hurling racial slurs at one photographer, which Baldwin denied, throwing gay insults at a British journalist and tussling with yet another photographer in August shortly after daughter Carmen’s birth.
He hit rock bottom in November when he spat derogatory gay comments at a photographer. The fallout was so brutal that MSNBC yanked his show off the air after just five broadcasts.
Baldwin had hoped to use the show as a platform to run for New York City mayor, but that’s just a pipe dream now, the friend added.
“Political opponents would have a field day tearing him apart,” said the source.
“Alec is filled with remorse over his public behavior, and he’s on a downward slide. He realizes he’s done some things that no apologies will ever fix.”
