Alec Baldwin Gives First Interview Since Filming ‘Rust’

Alec Baldwin gave First public interview on Thursday since shooting death of cameraman Halyna Hutchins on the set of Journey to the West Rust. “Someone has to take responsibility for what happened,” he told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “And I can’t say who it is, but I know it’s not me.”

Baldwin said that the film’s first assistant director, Dave Halls, gave him an antique Colt .45 pistol and told him, “This is a cold gun,” an industry term for only a gun that does not contain real ammunition. “Now, what happened there, and why did he make that statement, and what is the fact, I have, again, I don’t know,” said the actor (lawyer of the actor). Halls “Will not confirm” if her client was the one who gave Baldwin the gun).

With a gun in hand, Baldwin said he and Hutchins had begun sealing off the scene. She is directing his every move: “Everything is going her way… This is a mark rehearsal. And [Hutchins] told me, ‘Put the gun down. Go to your right. Okay, right here. Okay, do it. Now let’s show it a little lower. ‘ And she was helping me position the gun… She was instructing me how she wanted me to hold the gun at this angle. I was holding the gun she told me to hold, it ended up being aimed right under her armpit. ”

Baldwin is adamant that he “didn’t pull the trigger”. Instead, he asserted that he “put down the hammer, the gun went off… I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger on them”. His first thought when he saw Hutchins fall to the ground was, “Did she faint?” It took 45 minutes to “dawn” to him that there was a direct volley of bullets in the gun.

Later in the interview, Baldwin was asked about a comment made by George Clooney, who told Marc Maron that it would “cazy” so that someone doesn’t test the gun prop for direct firing rounds. “There are a lot of people who feel the need to contribute some comment to the situation, which really doesn’t help the situation at all. If your protocol is that you check your guns all the time, good for you. Good for you,” he said, adding, “My protocol is to trust the person with the job. And it has worked so far.”

Baldwin’s interview with Stephanopoulos will be available on Hulu.
