“I Didn’t Pull The Trigger”Alec Baldwin Finally Speaks Out to ABC News


Alec Baldwin has been fairly low key since he allegedly shot a cast member, Halyna Hutchins, while working on set of a movie called Rust. Allegedly, he accidentally fired a prop weapon off that was loaded during a rehearsal. ABC News anchor George Stephanopolous interviewed the broadway performer Tuesday. And when asked what made him pull the trigger, his reponse was:

“The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger, Baldwin said. Adding, “I would never point a gun at anyone and then pull the trigger, never”.

As he visibly fights back tears during the dialogue, he shares, “She was someone who was loved by everyone who wored with her, liked by everyone who worked with her–and admired. It doesn’t seem real to me”.

Baldwin has shown remorse for the incident that happened in October. Halyna’s husband, Matthew, told The Post last month that Baldwin was being supportive during this tumultuous time.


“I have spoken with Alec Baldwin and he’s been very supportive”, he said.

As far as Baldwin’s interview, it’s set to air tonight, Thursday at 8pm on ABC. But if you just can’t wait, there’s a video going viral on Twitter.
