Earlier this week, Alec Baldwin lost his cool during an unexpected run-in with a reporter while on the streets of Manhattan.
The 63-year-old actor was caught on camera while outside Woody Allen’s townhouse on the Upper East Side when a reporter from The New York Post approached him to ask about the tragedy that occurred on the Rust set just months ago.
As OK! reported, Baldwin was holding the prop gun when the film’s director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, 42, was accidentally shot and killed. Last week, the actor claimed in a bombshell interview with George Stephanophoulos that he never pulled the trigger on the weapon.
In a video posted to Twitter, the 30 Rock alum was seen waiting at the front door of Allen’s townhouse when reporter Jon Levine began asking him why he was in the city.
Baldwin’s wife Hilaria Baldwin chimed in, telling Levine: “I asked you to leave,” while holding up her phone to record the interaction. “I asked you to go away,” she repeated. “Please go away.”
At that point, the Pixie actor turned and stormed toward the reporter while waving his umbrella in the air and yelling, “You’re not allowed to photograph on somebody’s private home.”
Hilaria then had to restrain her husband, grabbing on to his coat to hold him back, per the video.
“This is public property,” Levine responded.
“Go away, stop it,” Hilaria demanded, as a man opened the door to the home, and the pair headed inside.
“Did you really not pull the trigger?” the reporter shouted from the sidewalk. “Do you believe it went off without you pulling the trigger? Was it a malfunction?”
The encounter comes just days after the Motherless Brooklyn star appeared in a primetime ABC special, where he insisted on clearing the air about what really happened to cause the devastating accident on the indie film set in October. Alec's sit-down with Stephanophoulos was his first interview since the fatal shooting.
"The trigger wasn't pulled. I didn't pull the trigger," Baldwin declared during the interview. "I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger on them, never. Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property.”
Later in the interview, Baldwin maintained he was not responsible for the incident that cost Hutchins her life.
“Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that it, but I know it’s not me," he concluded, adding: "I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible, and I don’t say that lightly."
