Alec Baldwin gets his car repaired in the Hamptons after recent auto breakdown

Alec Baldwin had his classic BMW repaired at a Hamptons mechanic in New York on Tuesday.

The 62-year-old star wore a navy blue jacket with a black shirt and a face mask amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The 30 Rock star had his grey locks parted to the side and he chat with the mechanic on the clear winter day.

The latest: Alec Baldwin, 62, had his classic BMW repaired at a Hamptons mechanic in New York on Tuesday, a day after leaving Twitter  

Alec, who won an Emmy for his Saturday Night Live impression of outgoing President Donald Trump, appeared to one a good mood a day before Trump left office. 

Baldwin made headlines after he left Twitter indefinitely Monday morning, weeks after his wife Hilaria, 37, was embroiled in a scandal, accused of faking Spanish heritage and accent when she was raised in Boston.

‘Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming,’ he said. ‘Not much of a party. Goodbye for now.’

The Glengarry Glen Ross actor last month called the social media format ‘just a vast orchard of c***’ amid the imbroglio involving his spouse.

‘You have to kind of hack your way through the debris of Twitter,’ the Academy Award nominee said. ‘There’s things that have been said lately about people that I love, that I care about deeply, which are ridiculous. I mean, just ridiculous.

‘They’ve said it about people I love – false things. Untrue things. And as much as that hurts, the only thing I can do is talk to that half of the public or that portion of the public who understands what I mean when I say: Consider the source. When you love somebody you want to defend them.’

Baldwin and Hilaria are parents to five children – daughter Carmen, seven, and sons Rafael, five, Leonardo, four, Romeo, two, and Eduardo, four months.

Hilaria’s heritage fell under question after a social media thread pointed out inconsistencies in stories she had told the media about her upbringing.

A number of her childhood peers said she grew up in Boston under the name Hillary Hayward-Thomas, and did not speak with a Spanish accent in those years. She was seen in a 2015 Today show clip seemingly forgetting the world ‘cucumber’ in a cooking segment, which became a social media focal point as the scandal contained to make headlines.

She told the New York Times of the scandal, ‘There is not something I’m doing wrong, and I think there is a difference between hiding and creating a boundary.

‘I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and in Spain. My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 years old and I have lived here ever since,’ she told the paper. ‘For me, I feel like I have spent 10 years sharing that story over and over again. And now it seems like it’s not enough.’
