Alec Baldwin got emotional while discussing the fatal on-set shooting death of Halyna Hutchins on Instagram on Friday night.
The embattled Hollywood actor, who is possibly under investigation for Hutchins’ death on his movie set, gave his confessional from the airport on his way to work.
“I am at the airport and I am about to go on a trip to go do a little job and I am, as I often am, miserable,” Baldwin confessed to his fans.
“I’m very sad whenever I leave my family.
“I’m sorry my eyes are still so puffy. I’m not sleeping.
“I don’t think you make the choices we’ve made without having an abundant clarity of wanting to have a lot of kids.
“I don’t have anything else in my life.
“I really don’t have anything else in my life that matters to me on that scale, and I really mean that.
“I’m not asking anyone to pin any medals on me but I just haven’t done anything else in my life that even remotely means anything to me.
“I hate to leave my family.
“I’m turning down jobs I think I shouldn’t do because I hate to be away from my kids.
“I hate to be away from my wife and kids.
“I’m on my way to go on a trip and leave my family – it’s not that long – but I hate it. I really hate it.
“They pull me into a world I never dreamed I would be a part of…It’s unbelievable. I have a good partner.
“Hug your kids and love your kids and make every day count.”
“Someone is responsible for what happened,” Baldwin said of Hutchins’ death.
“It’s not me,” he added.
However, responsibility for the shooting will be decided the courts.
From Page Six:
Various tweeters — regardless of whether or not they seemed to be from Boulder — didn’t seem thrilled with the announcement, with many noting that the investigation into the shooting of Hutchins is still ongoing.
Elizabeth Ingraham replied on Twitter, “Your film festival chose someone who shot two people and is part of an active criminal investigation to be Special Guest Programmer?”
@MoreGoodies123, tweeted to the festival organizers, “You’re star-struck. Actual crew members- who are not household names- are shot by this man & one LOST HER LIFE. Is the BIFF really this callous? I’m truly shocked. He should withdraw, or you should rescind the invitation. It’s inappropriate.”
@janetsnakehole0 responded, “Exactly! Alec Baldwin shot & killed Halyna, a crew member who had a promising career ahead of her and shot & injured Joel Souza. And BIFF is proud to announce this?”
