[an error occurred while processing this directive]Washington (ANI): Actor Alec Baldwin has decided to put an end to his Hollywood career in 2012. The acclaimed 30 Rock actor, who has an Oscar nomination, two Golden Globes and two Emmy Awards to his credit, said he is choosing to withdraw because he considers himself a showbiz 'failure'.

"I don't have any interest in acting anymore. Movies are part of my past. It's been 30 years. I'm not young, but I have time to do something else," Contactmusic quoted him as telling U.S. magazine Men's Journal.

"It's a difficult thing to say, but I believe it: I consider my entire movie career a complete failure. I'll tell you why. The goal of moviemaking is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that," he added.
