For the first time since the tragic shooting of his friend on set, actor Alec Baldwin spoke publicly about the shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was killed by a bullet fired from a prop pistol fired by Baldwin on the set of the film “Rust.”
Baldwin, who was found by paparazzi on the side of a Vermont road with his wife Hilaria, said he couldn’t comment on the inquiry into his death, which occurred on Oct. 21 south of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
“I’ve been ordered by the sheriff’s department in Santa Fe (not to comment on the case). … It’s an active investigation in terms of a woman died, she was my friend,” Baldwin said. “… We were a very, very well-oiled crew shooting a film together, and then this horrible event happened.”
Baldwin, appearing annoyed at times when his wife interrupted to chastise reporters, confirmed that he had met with Hutchins’ husband Matthew and the couple’s 9-year-old son, adding that the husband was “overwhelmed with grief.”
