Hilaria Baldwin has broken her silence after her husband Alec Baldwin accidentally shot and took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
She took to Instagram on Monday and wrote: “My heart is with Halyna. Her husband. Her son. Their family and loved ones. And my Alec.
“It’s said “there are no words” because it’s impossible to express the shock and heartache of such a tragic accident. Heartbreak. Loss. Support.”
Hilaria received messages of support from fellow celebrities like Melanie Griffith and Katie Couric.
63-year-old Alec accidentally shot Hutchins, 42, on the set of their new film Rust in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was rehearsing drawing his gun when it suddenly went off.
The actor was photographed buckled over in grief after being interviewed by police.
It is believed Hilaria flew to New Mexico in the early hours of Friday morning to be with her husband.
The 37-year-old has not been seen publicly but her husband was seen embracing Hutchins’ grieving husband Matthew in Santa Fe on Sunday.
The tragic incident has been described as an accident but many in the TV and movie industry have started pointing fingers at who is responsible.
Search warrants reveal that David Halls, the assistant director of Rust, was unaware the gun he handed the actor contained live ammunition as he had declared it a ‘cold’ weapon.
One crew member told Daily Mail that he had worked with Halls on two sets in LA in 2019, one involving shotguns and one a revolver and Glock.
Every morning they had a meeting to discuss the weapons and safety issues but he said Halls did not think they were necessary.
“He was very flippant about my insistence on having a safety meeting about the weapons, on both of the sets,” the crew member said. “He would rush through it and say, alright guys, be safe, let’s get to work.”
“Even though the guns were not loaded, you have to treat it as if it always is,” the crew member continued.
“And for me that means doing a safety meeting that may be seen as unnecessary but should absolutely be done so that everyone is on the same page.”
