Alec Baldwin Treated And Released From Hospital

The actor's rep says he was hospitalized as a result of a 'misunderstanding.'

Actor Alec Baldwin was treated and released from a New York hospital after a young woman believed to be his daughter, Ireland, called emergency assistance claiming her father was unresponsive, according to NBC News. When paramedics arrived at Baldwin's New York City home, he reportedly was responsive and agreed to seek treatment at the hospital.

The "30 Rock" star was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital and was released after about an hour. His condition was undisclosed. The actor's spokesperson, Matthew Hiltzik, issued a statement saying, "This was a misunderstanding on one person's part. Alec was quickly released from the hospital, he's completely fine and will be at work today."

Baldwin currently stars on "30 Rock" and recently had box-office success in "It's Complicated" alongside Meryl Streep and Steve Martin. He's also set to co-host the Oscars on March 7 with Martin.

In recent years, Baldwin has made known his intention to retire from acting, saying, "I don't have any interest in acting anymore. ... Movies are a part of my past. It's been 30 years. I'm not young, but I have time to do something else."

And, in usual Baldwin spirit, when he [news id="1628770"]sat down with MTV News[/news] late last year to promote "It's Complicated," he made light of his views on plastic surgery, a topic in the rom-com. Baldwin joked that you can end up looking "like a tranny." And as long "your goal is not to look like a tranny," then he sees no problem with it. "I'm not saying 'tranny' in the pejorative sense," he said. "I mean in the descriptive sense."
