Alec Baldwin said he can't think of anything worse than waking up next to a 25-year-old woman
Alec Baldwin wouldn't want to have a trophy wife.
The 51-year-old actor - who was married to Kim Basinger for nine years from 1993 - doesn't see the appeal of younger women as he doesn't think he would be able to have a conversation with someone who didn't have the same life experiences as him.
He said: "What's worse than waking up with a 25-year-old woman, you know what I mean? You want to go shoot yourself because you have nothing to say to her. Seriously.
"It's sad but there are men who go for whatever their earliest ideal of a sexual partner was, they stay with that ideal, meaning men often lock into the image of the first girl they loved at 18.
"They get stuck in an idea of sexuality with young women. Other men learn to see beyond all that."
The 'It's Complicated' star also admitted he thinks most men regret divorcing later on - hinting that he still has strong feelings for 'Batman' actress Kim, with who he has a14-year-old daughter, Ireland.
He added in an interview with the Metro newspaper: "Men are literally lying in bed with their wives when the marriage is essentially over thinking 'I've got to get the hell out of here' and have a fantasy woman in mind.
"Then you get divorced, meet a woman, marry her and, by the time all that goes by, you've aged a few years and are ready to go back to your ex-wife.
"You want a woman who is sane and normal. A woman who is more like you. You've gotten older."
