NEW YORK, May 9 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Alec Baldwin said he might one day run for political office.

In an interview to air on CBS Sunday, Baldwin talked to "60 Minutes" about his career, his divorce from actress Kim Basinger and their custody battle over their daughter Ireland.

"There's other things I want to do (besides acting.) I mean, in a matter of weeks, I'm going to be 50," Baldwin, who turned 50 on April 3, said several weeks ago. "There's no age limit on running for office, to a degree. (It is) something I might do one day."

Baldwin also said he learned a lot from a recent incident in which an angry, unflattering voicemail message he left for his daughter was made public.

"If you go through the things I have gone through with the media like this thing with my daughter, there's only one thing that comes to mind initially: that is how my daughter must have felt to have this played out in public," Baldwin told "60 Minutes" correspondent Morley Safer. "The second thing I realize is: you can pretty much bet all you own that I would never leave another voicemail message for my daughter that wasn't just like something out of a Rogers and Hammerstein score."
