Alec Baldwin is in turmoil. More than a month after accidentally killing Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie Rust, the actor is preparing his defense. Prosecuted, like the other producers of the feature film, the husband of Hilaria Baldwin seems cornered. A few days ago, the police obtained a warrant to retrieve his cell phone, which he had not wanted to give them. According to investigators dealing with this case, his device could indeed contain discussions “key related to what led to the death by firearms of Halyna Hutchins”. According to authorities, “Gathering information before Rust’s filming start date is essential for a full investigation.” The actor and the gunsmith of the film notably exchanged e-mails on the type of weapon to use and Alec Baldwin would have asked him “a bigger weapon”, a Colt.
Information that the actor quickly disputed on his Twitter account. Disappeared from social networks, Alec Baldwin shared a clear message in private, as spotted by the Daily Mail. “It’s a lie”, first assured the actor. He continued: “The choices I made regarding props for the Rust movie were made weeks before production started. To suggest that changes were made ‘before the fatal shoot’ is totally wrong.” Alec Baldwin is not the only one to have been silenced since the publication of this new information. On her Instagram account, his wife said she was “grateful to people who stop [their] husbands to tell him that they are thinking of him, that they pray for him”.
