Well, he has clearly established that he does lie about this thing.Actually that move has been used before many times, his Problem is his ego can’t allow him to shut his trap, he’s lying now, r was lying before
This was reported in today's newspaper...
Holy Sh1t... This is a very gutsy strategy by Baldwin. I can't see how it's not making things worse for him... especially his apparent knowledge of the risk of "blanks" discharging a potentially dangerous wad.
What a douche.
Alec Baldwin says he is not to blame for Rust movie shooting ‘and I can’t say who is’
Alec Baldwin has insisted he feels no guilt over the shooting death on the set of his movie Rust, but has dropped clues who he thinks is to blame.
Alec Baldwin said he doesn’t feel guilty for the death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust and has told of handling the gun in the final seconds before the cinematographer was killed.
“I feel that someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is. But I know it’s not me,” the Hollywood actor told ABC America’s George Stephanopoulos.
It was the 63-year-old’s first major interview since the on-set tragedy in October.
“I mean, I honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible, I might have killed myself,” he said of the death of Ms Hutchins, who left behind a husband and young son.
Baldwin and the film crew were rehearsing a scene when the shocking tragedy occurred.
Ms Hutchins told him to hold the gun in her direction and aim it “right below her armpit”, Baldwin said.
“I said to her, ‘in this scene, I’m going to cock the gun, do you want to see that?’” he recalled.
She told him to go ahead – and seconds later she was struck with a live bullet.
“I let go of the hammer and the gun goes off,” Baldwin told Stephanopoulos.
“I never pulled the trigger.”
Ms Hutchins died and director Joel Souza was wounded when the bullet passed through her body and struck him.
“I let go of the hammer. Bang. The gun goes off,” he said.
“Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud. They don’t have their earplugs in... the gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun.”
The former 30 Rock star said he didn’t believe at first the 42-year-old had actually been shot.
“The notion that there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me ‘till probably 45 minutes to an hour later.”
“She’s laying there and I go, ‘did she hit by wadding? Was there a blank? Sometime those blank rounds have a wadding inside that packs, it’s like a cloth that packs the gunpowder in. Sometimes wadding comes out, it can hit people, and it could feel like a bit of a poke,” he said.
He was then told to leave the set before he could check on Ms Hutchins.
Despite speculation he could be charged and held liable for her death, Baldwin said he didn’t believe he would be arrested over the shooting.
“A live round isn’t supposed to be anywhere near the set. I don’t have anything to hide.”
Baldwin said it was “highly unlikely that I’d be charged with anything criminally”.
No criminal charges have been filed, but two crew members have filed civil lawsuits accusing Baldwin, the producers and others of negligence and poor safety procedures.
He said the investigation should focus on who brought live rounds onto the set.
where are all the Hollywood anti gun people……
fuckin Douche bags.
every movie out of Hollywood is filled with gun violence, only they wave their firearms in the name of truth,justice, and the American way, if Any of us little people did it, we would go to the slammer.
