Ireland Baldwin is planning to act and has enrolled in an acting school, according to a report. The 17-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger recently started off as a model but wants to foray into other pursuits.

“Hopefully, I’ll be beginning acting school…,” she was quoted by as saying.

Baldwin turns 18 in October and is planning to study stagecraft.

“(I’ll be) just getting a little bit more serious about life… definitely kind of just trekking forward, onward with my journey,” she continued.

Baldwin recently described getting into modeling.

“I think everyone’s really happy for me,” she told, referring to what her family thinks. She added: “It’s been, so far, just such a fun ride. They’re really happy that it’s building confidence for me and it’s getting me out there, so I think that everyone’s just motivating me to keep going with it.”

In April, she told The New York Post that she and her father have their own paths.

“You know, he has his own agenda and I have my own,” she said.

She added: “I think he’s very outspoken and he has his opinions, and he’s him and I’m me, and I know he’s done things that he regrets himself and that he’s sorry for, but you know, the past is the past.”
