Baldwin told Total Film
: "Now I'm with someone who's not in the business and I would like to have a different life this time, have it be more normal."
The 30 Rock
star's first marriage to fellow actor Kim Basinger ended in 2002, and he believes that their relationship did not work out because it was put under so much strain from their busy acting careers.
Baldwin said: "When you're both in the business, you both know that you're going to light one film off the other."
He added that time spent with a loved one becomes "startlingly little" when dedicating towards work.
Baldwin stated: "You do the best you can at the time, but a marriage has to be a priority."
