Alec Baldwin is planning to open up about his various controversies in a candid memoir.

The Hollywood star, 56, has a book deal with Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, and they have said his tome will cover everything from Alec's childhood in Long Island to his acclaimed work on 30 Rock to the various run-ins and fallings-out he has experienced along the way.

The publishers said Alec's book - which will be called Nevertheless and which he will write himself - will be a story of "hits and flops, marriage, divorce". T he star, who is known for having a rocky relationship with the press, will also share opinions on the media and politics.

"Alec Baldwin is a larger-than-life talent with an astonishing range. And his life up to now has been far from dull," HarperCollins publisher Jonathan Burnham said in a statement.

"In this memoir he writes about his family, lovers, friends and enemies, confronts his former demons, relives the highs and lows of his career, and opens up in an unflinchingly honest way about his life and times. This memoir will be funny, occasionally combative, often moving and an unbelievably good read."

Alec's book is due out in 2016.
