Alec Baldwin has recalled the heartbreaking moment he met with Halyna Hutchins’ husband and son after her fatal shooting on the set of Rust. 

Cinematographer Hutchins, 42, was killed in October when a prop gun Baldwin, 63, was holding misfired, fatally wounding her and injuring director Joel Souza.

Appearing in a sit-down interview on ABC, Baldwin told George Stephanopoulos of the moment he received the news Hutchins had died of her injuries and how he felt speaking to her husband and son. 

He explained: ‘At the very end of my interview with the Sheriff’s department they said: “We regret to tell you that she didn’t make it, she died.” They told me right then and there and that’s when I went in the parking lot and called my wife to talk to my wife. 

‘And when this happened, her husband comes to town, her husband Matthew and I met with him and their son.’

Recalling the kindness Hutchins’ husband had shown him in the wake of the tragedy, Baldwin continued: ‘He was as kind as you can be, I didn’t know what to say. He hugged me and he goes, “I suppose you and I are going to go through this together.”

‘And I thought, well, not as much as you are. His little boy is there, who is nine years old. Of the six kids that Hilaria and I have, my oldest is eight. I have a nine-month-old baby. 

‘And I think to myself, this little boy doesn’t have a mother anymore. There’s nothing we can do to bring her back.’

Getting emotional, Baldwin added: ‘I told him, “I don’t know what to say, I don’t know how to convey to you how sorry I am, and how I’m willing to do anything I can to cooperate.”’

Elsewhere in the interview, Baldwin claimed that he didn’t feel ‘guilt’ for the incident as ‘someone else’ was responsible for the accident happening.

Baldwin added that he did not pull the trigger, insisting the gun misfired, explaining: ‘Halyna and I had something profound in common – we both presumed the gun was empty.’

Explaining that they were in a ‘marking rehearsal’ at the time of the tragedy, he said she told him to point the gun in her direction, and aimed it ‘below her armpit’.

‘So I take the gun and I start to cock the gun. I’m not going to pull the trigger, I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it.’

Baldwin claimed that when he released the ‘hammer’ the fatal shot was fired, adding: ‘The gun was supposed to be empty, she goes down. I thought to myself, “Did she faint?”’

He also revealed that he gets nightmares and flashbacks since the incident, leaving him ‘struggling’ and unable to sleep properly for weeks. 

The actor has been cooperating with police as they investigate the incident, and told his followers in a statement after the tragedy: ‘There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours.

‘I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. 

‘My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.’
