Alec Baldwin's Net Worth Revealed

Alec Baldwin's net worth in 2024 may have taken a hit since pre-pandemic levels.

Baldwin paid an undisclosed settlement to the family of Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after he accidentally shot her while rehearsing a scene. There is ongoing litigation stemming from the incident, including a criminal trial and several civil lawsuits.

That said, the storied actor has had a four-decade career and commands salaries that will keep him quite comfortable for some time—depending on his family's lifestyle expenses.

In the Let's Talk Off Camera podcast with Kelly Ripa, Baldwin said that whenever he travels, he has to get 11 plane tickets for "nannies, kids, my wife—they don't even have 11 seats in the business-class section of the plane!" He added that during one work trip to California (they're based in New York), the family needed four adjoining suites to accommodate all of them.

"I look at my wife and I go, 'You realize we’re not gonna make a dime; we're not gonna make one cent,'" he recalled of the expenses, adding, "Here we are mashed potatoes, $20 room service, a Diet Coke is $11."

That said, he can (probably) afford a few Diet Cokes with his cash for now. Find out the 30 Rock star's net worth and how he made it.
