On Monday, the actor addressed his return to acting in an Instagram video.

“I said I would keep a little diary while I was traveling and working,” Baldwin said while lying down in bed. “We had our first day today, which is always tricky. I don’t work as much as I used to, and I’ve said this before maybe, but you go to work, and you forget what you’re supposed to do. I just was like, oh, God what do you do? What is acting or any of this nonsense that I’ve ended up doing?”

He continued: “It’s strange to go back to work. I haven’t worked since Oct. 21 of last year when this horrible thing happened on the set of this film, and the accidental death of our cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.”

“I may still even find that hard to say. I went back to work today for the first time in three and a half months, and movies are nearly always the same,” he said.

Baldwin stressed that he’s feeling like one of the oldest people in the room on the new set.

“Everybody’s young compared to me, especially an independent film where there are good people. There are very good people but everybody’s chasing all the good people and a lot of the best ones get gobbled up by projects that have more money,” he said, later adding that the flick has a “very limited budget” — much like “Rust.”

A rep for Baldwin did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
