This week, the ABC News division will release the lengthy interview it held with Alec baldwin, on the occasion of the tragic incident that occurred during the filming of the western film Rust. Six weeks ago, the cinematographer Halyna hutchins died from a loaded pistol that was fired on the film set. That same day, October 21, reports emerged that it was Baldwin — an actor and producer of that film project — who accidentally detonated the murder weapon. Those responsible for the armory allegedly had previously checked that it did not contain any real bullets.
While the investigation continues, Alec Baldwin chose to provide his first in-depth interview since the unfortunate event. And while his full talk with ABC News will not be released until 8:00 p.m. (Eastern time) this Thursday, December 2, the portal has already published a brief preview with some statements from the person implicated in the painful murder.
First, the actor dedicates a few words to the late Halyna Hutchins, 42. “She was someone who everyone who worked with her loved and admired”says Baldwin before putting his hand to his face, crying. Even now, I find it hard to believe [su muerte] It doesn’t seem real to me.
At teaser From the interview – which is sold as “the special news event” of ABC News – the host George Stephanopoulos poses a series of questions, such as “why speak now? [del incidente]? “,” How could this happen? ” and “what do you think happened?” Exciting music plays, and between interviewer and interviewee’s back and forth, the names of both appear, as if they were the stars of Hollywood’s next summer hit (was such a blatant publicity stunt necessary?)
«The trigger was not pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger. No no no no. I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger. Never”Alec Baldwin states elsewhere. And according to Deadline, the assistant director of Rust, David Halls, asserted from the beginning that, although the gun was indeed in the actor’s hands, his finger never came close to the trigger. Consequently, the pistol would have been discharged automatically: another mystery that adds to the fact that no one knows how a real bullet ended up inside the deadly device.
“Someone put a real bullet in a pistol, a bullet that was not even supposed to be on the property,” says Baldwin in the same interview with ABC News.
A day after the murder of Halyna Hutchins, Alec Baldwin tweeted to express his dismay at the event.
“There are no words to express my shock and sadness over the tragic accident that claimed the life of Halyna Hutchins, our deeply admired wife, mother and colleague,” the publication reads (via). “I am fully cooperating with the police investigation to clarify how this tragedy occurred.”
At the same time, several celebrities and acquaintances of the cinematographer also manifested themselves on social networks in order to mourn his death and, in some cases, condemn that something like this could still happen on a film set.
The entry “I did not pull the trigger”: Alec Baldwin, in an interview about a tragic incident, was first published in Cinema PREMIERE.
