Actor Alec Baldwin and director Richard Linklater have braved the chilly waters off New York's Long Island at the annual East Hampton Polar Bear Plunge on New Year's Day.

Newsday reports that Baldwin and Linklater were among dozens who took part in Friday's plunge in the Atlantic Ocean. The event in the posh beach town raises money for a food pantry.

Baldwin is a Long Island native and a regular at glitzy charity events on the island's East End.

The Texas-based Linklater was vacationing in the area and decided to join the plunge. He said it was "really cool, so many people coming out for a good reason."

Baldwin has starred in numerous films as well as the NBC show "30 Rock."

Linklater's films include "Dazed and Confused," ''School of Rock" and "Boyhood."
