Alec Baldwin has been in the news recently for inadvertently killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust.” This was a tremendous tragedy that made international headlines, and Baldwin has been held accountable for his actions ever since.
The actor referred to the shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins as “the worst situation I’ve ever been involved with.” Following the fatal shooting in October, Alec Baldwin is delivering grim reflections on the coming year. On Saturday, the actor shared an almost 13-minute video on Instagram in which he updated fans on his emotional state of mind and thanked them for their continued support.
“I’ve had more people who have been kind and thoughtful and generous of spirit than I’ve had people who are malignant about the death Halyna Hutchins. I’m not afraid to say that and to couch that in some euphemisms — somebody died very tragically. And I’ve gotten so much, I mean so much, goodwill from people. It’s just incredible.”
Baldwin said in his new video that while he doesn’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, he hopes to find better ways to deal with negativity in 2022. He went on to say that he’d lately had phone chats with spiritual and philosophical philosophers about how to “control your feelings better and not let them ruin you or get the better of you. We live in a world where there are oceans of negativity, both online and off, and we need to figure out how to manage it.”
Baldwin uploaded a similarly contemplative Instagram video on Dec. 23 in which he stated that the Rust event will never be those affected. “Not a day goes by that I don’t think about that,” he added. The incident is being investigated by the Santé Fe Sheriff’s Department and the District Attorney’s Office, as well as Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed and assistant director Dave Halls.
