Alec Baldwin remarked on returning to the red carpet with Hilaria 6 months after his fatal shooting

On Thursday, April 21, Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria attended the premiere of the play “Hangmen” at the Golden Theater in New York. For the occasion, both wore sober and elegant outfits. It is the couple’s first public appearance since the 64-year-old actor caused a deadly shooting on the set of the New Mexico western Rust.

As a reminder, on October 21, 2021, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was accidentally killed by a revolver being handled by the actor. This gun, which should have contained blanks, would not have been properly checked by the gunsmith hired on set. In an interview with ABC, Alec Baldwin said he felt neither “guilty” nor “responsible” for the tragedy.

A report that ‘exonerates’ Alec Baldwin?

After months of investigation, an important milestone was reached this week. According to a police report released Wednesday (April 19) by New Mexico authorities, the feature film’s producers showed “apparent indifference to the recognized dangers associated with the use of firearms on the tablet.” A New Mexico court has fined the production company $136,793 or €126,000 for failing to follow safety instructions during filming. “Our investigation showed that this tragedy would never have happened if Rust Movie Productions, LLC had followed guidelines for the safe use of firearms in the motion picture industry,” said Cabinet Secretary James Kennedy.

This Thursday, April 20, Alec Baldwin’s attorneys highlighted elements of the investigation that give their client cause. “We appreciate the report exonerating Mr Baldwin by clarifying that he believed the gun contained only blanks. Additionally, the report recognizes that Mr. Baldwin’s authority on set was limited to approving script changes,” they wrote in a text posted to the comedian’s Instagram account.
