Husband of killed ‘Rust’ cinematographer unloads on Alec Baldwin in first interview: ‘I was just so angry’

Matt Hutchins, the husband of Halyna Hutchins who was fatally shot on the set of “Rust” spoke to “Today” in the first interview since his wife’s death, and he explained how he’s felt about Alec Baldwin denying responsibility.

“The idea that the person holding the gun and causing it to discharge is not responsible is absurd to me,” he explained to Hoda Kotb.

He told Kotb that the denial made him “so angry” but he believes that Baldwin isn’t the only one responsible.

“I was just so angry to see him talk about her death so publicly in such a detailed way and then to not accept any responsibility after having just described killing her. But gun safety was not the only problem on that set,” he said. “There were a number of industry standards that were not practiced and there’s multiple responsible parties.”

He revealed to Kotb that the first thought he had after hearing that his wife was shot was to be with his son.

“It was completely inexplicable to me that it could’ve happened at that moment, and the first thing I thought, I sat down and I said, ‘I have to get my son,’ because I had to be with him,” he said.

In his interview with George Stephanopolous, Baldwin fervently denied ever pulling the trigger.

“The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger…I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them, never,” he expressed.

The Hutchins family has filed a lawsuit against Baldwin and a number of others involved in the film, alleging that executives were “cutting corners on safety procedures where human lives were at stake” while ignoring “numerous complaints of safety violations.”
