London: Alec Baldwin is planning to leave his TV comedy show ‘30 Rock’ in 2012 – to lead a "normal" and "private" life away from the spotlight.

The actor admitted that acting has become "really hard" for him - and he`s ready to give up his place in the cast when his contract ends in two years` time.

"As much as I like acting, I know that I would love to have a different life, a private life. I think doing this now for a living has become really hard. It`s really hard,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling CNN.

"I would rather go do other things and have whatever amount of time I have left in my life, have more of a normal life... I want to find out if it`s possible. How close can I get," he added.
