After the set incident: Baldwin thanks his wife with an emotional message
Alec Baldwin has sent his wife a public note of thanks. In it he paid tribute to her support. Around six weeks ago, the star on the film set fatally injured cinematographer Halyna Hutchins with a revolver.
Hollywood star Alec Baldwin, 63, thanked his wife Hilaria, 37, for her support with an emotional message. About six weeks ago, the actor fatally injured camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, 42 years old, on the film set with a revolver.
“No matter what happens to me, no matter what I suffer, whether I lose anything – no one can take away the joy and love that you have given me, Hilaria,” wrote Baldwin on Instagram on Friday. “It’s hard times. The world is suffocating with clouds of hatred. But you gave me a reason to live. Our life with our family is all that is important to me.” The couple has been married since 2012 and has six children.
Baldwin had previously spoken in detail for the first time about the film set incident in an interview broadcast on Thursday evening with the broadcaster ABC. The killed camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, 42, was loved and admired by everyone, said the actor and producer. He still couldn’t believe it happened.
Alec Baldwin: I didn’t pull the trigger
Baldwin emphasized, “I didn’t pull the trigger.” He would never point a gun at a person and pull the trigger. He had “no idea” how the live ammunition found its way into the weapon. Someone must have loaded the gun with live ammunition. “Someone put live ammunition in a gun, live ammunition that shouldn’t have been on the premises. Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t tell who it is, but it’s not me.”
While shooting the western “Rust” at a film ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on October 21, Hutchins was fatally injured and director Joel Souza, 48, was hit in the shoulder. Leading actor Baldwin had used the gun for a scene during the rehearsal. The ongoing investigation revealed that there was a real bullet in the Colt. The police are currently investigating how this could happen.
