Alec Baldwin has now finally spoken out on camera about the on-set shooting he was involved which took the life of a crew member and injured the director.
As Yahoo News reports:
Alec Baldwin was seen on camera speaking out about the death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of his film Rust.
Earlier this month, the 30 Rock actor was working on a scene for the Western when he fired a prop gun, killing Hutchins, the film’s cinematographer, as well as wounding the film’s director, Joel Souza.
Baldwin, who is in Vermont with his wife Hilaria, spoke to paparazzi about the incident, but said he was unable to share much given that there is an ongoing investigation into what happened on set.
“She was my friend,” Baldwin said of Hutchins. “The day I arrived in Santa Fe to start shooting I took her to dinner with Joel the director.”
The shocking death has led to calls to overhaul gun safety on movie sets across the country.
