ALEC Baldwin has been down in the dumps!
The actor 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,” a source told American tabloid the National 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.’”
Alec, 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.
In November, Alec spewed 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.”
