Alec Baldwin has mostly been laying low since the tragic shooting that occurred on the set of his movie “Rust.” He recently conducted a controversial television interview, but now is back out in public. Baldwin was the master of ceremonies at the Ripple of Hope Award Gala in New York on Thursday, December 9, 2021.
The event is affiliated with Robert F. Kennedy’s Human Rights charity. Baldwin was accompanied by his wife Hilaria. He said he was thankful to get out of the house for a change, according to TMZ.
“Thank you for all coming out tonight. It’s great to be together in person. It’s great to be with everyone. My wife and I have six kids, anything to get out of the house for 30 minutes.”
The appearance came one week after Baldwin’s first interview about the shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The actor acknowledged the tragedy during the event. He said he’s still coping. RFK’s daughter, Kerry Kennedy, thanked Baldwin for showing up during such a difficult time.
“He’s there in good times and bad, in your good times and bad and his good times and bad, he always shows up. I’m so proud.”
Alec Baldwin has said he doesn’t feel guilt or responsibility for Hutchins’ death. He believes the responsibility lays with the person who brought live ammunition onto a movie set. Baldwin contends that he never pulled the trigger in the fatal shooting.
