Movie star/producer Alec Baldwin says that he has “no idea” how a live bullet got onto the set of his film Rust – and he “didn’t pull the trigger” of the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them, never,” Baldwin told US network ABC News in an interview with George Stephanopoulos that was previewed yesterday. There’s speculation about what that statement means because it’s been confirmed by others that Hutchins was accidentally shot by Baldwin during a rehearsal. Stephanopoulos said the on-camera talk was “the most intense I’ve ever experienced”, which is saying something because he was a key adviser to US President Bill Clinton during some rough years… We’ll find out what’s what when the full interview is aired mid-today Aussie time. The police investigation is ongoing.
