Alec Baldwin looked bedraggled and exhausted, with pillowy bags under his eyes and day-old grey stubble on his chin, when he stepped out in New York City on Wednesday to have breakfast with a friend, two days after being filmed clashing with a reporter outside Woody Allen’s home.
Baldwin, 63, appeared careworn and walked with a slight stoop as he met up with a mustachioed male companion sporting a man-bun for coffee in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan.
The one-time Hollywood leading man donned a dark-colored suit jacket, mismatched rumpled pants, an untucked blue button-down shirt and a black scarf coiled nonchalantly around his neck. Despite the morning chill, he carried his coat slung over his arm.

Baldwin looked much older compared to his photo taken just two months prior, on October 7 – two weeks before the Rust shooting – when he attended a documentary premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival

It was Baldwin’s first public appearance since Monday night, when he was seen on video lunging at a tabloid reporter with an umbrella in hand outside Allen’s Upper East Side townhouse.
New York Post’s Jon Levine attempted to quiz the actor about his recent claim that he did not pull the trigger and fire the shot that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of his low-budget Western, Rust, in October.
Baldwin refused to engage, and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, repeatedly asked the journalist to leave and ‘please go away,’ and trained her cellphone camera on him.

When Levine would not stop asking questions about the shooting, Alec charged at him while grasping his umbrella and yelling that he was not allowed to be on someone’s private property. He did not make contact with the reporter, who pointed out to him that the sidewalk was, in fact, public property.
On Wednesday, a haggard-looking Baldwin seemed much more composed.
He and a friend were observed having an animated chat over coffee at an outdoor dining space on University Place.
Baldwin was seen making dramatic gestures, balling his hand into a fist, stabbing the air with his index finger and making his friend laugh. He also showed the man something on his cellphone during their lively conversation.
After leaving the café, Baldwin and his pal continued talking on the sidewalk before parting ways, with the actor crossing the street while nursing un unfinished cup of iced coffee and carrying a small paper shopping bag.

Baldwin tearfully told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in an interview last week that he didn’t pull the trigger
Filming a scene inside an Old West-style church, Baldwin apparently aimed a gun towards the camera when it somehow fired, accidentally killing Halyna Hutchins (pictured) as she filmed him, and injuring Souza, who stood behind her
The night before, Baldwin’s wife, 37-year-old Hilaria, was spotted enjoying an evening stroll with three of her six children.
Hilaria, wearing a stylish white Moncler coat and quirky pearl-adorned mules, was photographed smiling and laughing with daughter Carmen, eight, and sons Rafael, six, and Leonardo, five.
The famous couple’s back-to-back outings in New York City came less than a week after ABC aired Baldwin’s interview with George Stephanopoulos, during which he denied causing Hutchins’ death.
The actor tearfully maintained that he did not pull the trigger on October 21, and that the gun was supposed to have been empty.
‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud,’ he said.
‘Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who it is, but it’s not me.’

Baldwin also revealed that he didn’t know Hutchins had died until hours later, at the end of his police interview when he was photographed in the sheriff’s parking lot in Santa Fe, and that he’s been told by people ‘in the know’ that it is ‘highly unlikely’ he’ll face criminal charges.
Three days after the hotly debated interview aired, Baldwin had the intense encounter with The Post’s Levine outside Allen’s $17million home, which he shares with stepdaughter-turned-wife Soon-Yi and youngest daughter, Manzie.
Baldwin appeared in several of the controversial director’s films, including To Rome with Love in 2012 and Blue Jasmine in 2013, and has staunchly defended the 85-year-old from accusations that Allen molested his biological daughter Dylan Farrow when she was a young girl.
