Alec Baldwin Says Trump’s Comments Over Fatal ‘Rust’ Shooting Has “Taken Years Off” His Life

Alec Baldwin is only concerned about Alec Baldwin after he shot and killed 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins and injured 48-year-old Joel Souza on the movie set in Santa Fe, Mexico last October.

Baldwin told CNN that the shooting has cost him five jobs and the stress from Trump’s comments on the tragedy “has taken years off” his life.

“I got fired from another job yesterday,” he said. “There I was all set to go to a movie, jump on a plane … I’ve been talking with these guys for months and they told me yesterday we don’t want to do the film with you because of this.”

He also said he doesn’t believe he will face any charges after he killed a woman last year.

“I’m pretty confident neither one of them should ever work in a film set again,” he said. “I sincerely believe … [investigators are] going to say that this was an accident. It’s tragic.”

Baldwin pulled the trigger on the set of ‘Rust’ – according to FBI analysis.

However he blamed the producer’s death on Hannah Gutierrez Reed, the armorer and props assistant on the set of ‘Rust.’

“Someone put a live bullet in the gun who should have known better,” Baldwin said. “That was [Gutierrez Reed’s] job. Her job was to look at the ammunition and put in the dummy round or the blank round, and there wasn’t supposed to be any live rounds on the set.

“There are two people who didn’t do what they were supposed to do,” he added. “I’m not sitting there saying I want them to, you know, go to prison, or I want their lives to be hell. I don’t want that, but I want everybody to know that those are the two people that are responsible for what happened.”

“Why didn’t [Gutierrez Reed] check that bullet? Why didn’t Halls obey her?” Baldwin continued. “Why did he give me the gun? Why didn’t he check? Why did he tell the crew [it was a cold gun]?”

Alec Baldwin is being sued by Halyna Hutchins’ family for wrongful death.

Hutchins’ family said Alec Baldwin never checked the gun before using it.
