Actor, comedian and producer Alec Baldwin Rust denied reports that he was not cooperating with the ongoing investigation into the movie set tragedy. In October last year, a prop gun held by Baldwin exploded during a rehearsal on a Rust movie set near Santa Fe, New Mexico, killing cinematographer Halina Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.
Baldwin said he was unaware that the weapon was loaded with live rounds. He said in a television interview with Jorge Stefanopoulos in December that he had never pulled the trigger and that he had denied responsibility for the shooting. He also said he did not know how the live round got into the movie set.
“The trigger was not pulled. I did not pull the trigger, ”he said. “I cut the gun. I go and say, ‘Can you see? Can you see Can you see? ” Baldwin said. “And then I let go of the gun’s hammer, and the gun goes off. I let go of the gun’s hammer, the gun goes off,” he said.
In the video Baldwin shared from his car, he started by showing a Splenda sweetener packet on which a message from a fan was written. He later said he received the lost packet. He likened the rediscovery to a miracle and wondered if 2022 would be better for him.
Responding to reports of his compliance, he said, “Any indication that I am not complying with requests or orders or demands or search warrants about my phone is bullshit *** and lying. It is the process by which one state requests another state. People from another state can’t come to you and say ‘give me your phone’. Give it to me, give it to me. ‘ They cannot do that. They will pass through the state where you live.
He added, “And it is a time consuming process. They need to specify exactly what they want. They will not go through your phone and take your, you know, photos, your love letters to your wife or whatever you have. I do not really know but we are 1000 percent committed to everything. We’re totally fine with it. ”
