Alec Baldwin has been personally tormented after he accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October on the set of the upcoming film Rust, describing in an interview on Thursday how he has been having nightmares about guns and would have considered suicide if he thought he was responsible.
“I have dreams about this constantly now. I wake up constantly where guns are going off,” he told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in a conversation aired on Thursday. “I haven’t slept for weeks. I’ve really been struggling physically. I’m exhausted from this.”
The actor was visibly shaken recounting his experience on set, breaking into tears multiple times as he expressed his admiration for Ms Hutchins.
“I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible, and I don’t say that lightly,” Baldwin said, adding that, “I couldn’t give a s*** about my career anymore.”
During his Thursday interview, the actor described how, prior to the shooting, making Rust with dedicated professionals like the deceased cinematographer had rekindled his love of filmmaking after a long and draining career.
“So help me God, this made me love making movies again,” he said.
