On Monday, Fox Nation released a special called “Who Is Alec Baldwin?” which focused on his life, career, and various scandals that he had been involved in.
Hilaria encouraged her husband to “turn down the volume on the darkness and negativity” and focus on the support of his family during trying times.
Hilaria Baldwin Says She Is ‘Forever Grateful’ To Be In Alec Baldwin’s Life
In a candid Instagram post, Hilaria shared a black and white snap of the two lying side-by-side. They both have their eyes closed as they sleep cuddled up together, with his arm wrapped around her.
“To enter your world and become your person has been both a joy and an eye opening experience,” Hilaria began. “How many wonderful moments, meeting incredible people, doing amazing experiences, and building a family. I am forever grateful. Every day.”
She continued, “The darker part is seeing behind the curtain at how some of this ‘business’ can function and the blows and sacrifices that someone in the public eye takes for speaking up for what they believe and for helping others.”
“Enemies of these missions seek to destroy you, in order to delegitimize your voice and purpose,” she continued. “This is not a new tactic…it’s as old as history…yet, how easy it is now more than ever to slander people and cherry pick and piece together strands taken out of context, ‘opinions’, or complete fabrications. And how some people believe it or stay silent out of fear.”
“Alec, how many times we look at each other and say: deep breath, in this together, keep on for the good of what we believe. Somos un buen equipo,” she added.
Hilaria Recalls How People Are ‘Grateful’ To Alec Baldwin For His ‘Philanthropy’
Hilaria went on to describe “how many times I’ve experienced people stopping you and thanking you for your philanthropy in the arts, your work with children, fighting for our environment, and yes, we all know: our politics.”
“People see how hard you fight for what you believe is right,” she wrote. “And we are grateful. Listen to these voices..turn down the volume on the darkness and negativity.”
“I am the one that sees you in your dark moments…the human moments—away from the movie stardom and public figure that people are so quick to elevate or execute,” she wrote. “My empathy for your humanity is endless… unfortunately, having experienced the dehumanization myself, (another old tactic to go after the spouse of your enemy)…leads us to the moments when we think: how much more can one body and one mind take before we crumple beneath the psychological torture?”
Hilaria has previously opened up about the “30 Rock” actor’s struggles with PTSD, and he had previously told Playboy in 2015 that he had once considered taking his own life after a voicemail message went public calling his then 11-year-old daughter, Ireland Baldwin, with ex-wife Kim Basinger a “rude, thoughtless pig” in 2007.
“I don’t know the ending to any of our stories, but I do know that while we are living, I want you to be told time over time how much we see you and appreciate you,” Hilaria continued. “And we know that you are carrying quite a load, using the privileged place of your public voice for good.”
“Not everyone with your privilege chooses this path. And we know it’s hard. So many love you, AB, we are here for you to lean on and feel safe,” she concluded, ending her post with a single red heart emoji.
