Nearly two months after his involvement in the fatal shooting on the Rust film set that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead, the 63-year-old actor is thanking those who have remained by his side during these trying times.

Alongside a photo of Alec having a conversation with a truck driver on the side of the street, posted to Instagram by his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, on Tuesday, December 14, the couple expressed their thanks to people who've offered the actor kind words in the wake of the tragedy.

"Grateful for people who stop my husband to say they are thinking about him, praying for him, 'keep on, Alec,' 'hang in there,' 'we are here for you'....all of these messages are life changing for him. And also for our whole family," the 37-year-old captioned her photo. "A quick act of kindness means the world to us."

"Grateful to this superhuman who said he was praying for him today, as he was driving by," Hilaria continued. "Didn't get your name in our split moment encounter, but you are a special soul with a huge heart 💜."

The 30 Rock alum commented on his wife's post, writing "I am truly grateful, whoever you are."

The embattled comedian has found himself at the center of public scrutiny following his involvement in the horrific incident that occurred on the film set back in October. He has also been named in multiple lawsuits, alleging his role on set played a part in the tragedy.

Earlier this month, the actor lost his composure while being followed by a reporter outside of a townhouse in Manhattan. He was caught on camera storming toward the journalist while Hilaria demanded the man leave them alone.

The It's Complicated actor has clearly been struggling while dealing with the aftermath of the shooting and loss of Hutchins, who he was reportedly good friends with. As OK! previously reported, Alec was very emotional when he spoke out in his first sit-down interview since the fatal shooting.

During his conversation with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos earlier this month, Alec insisted he never pulled the trigger on the prop gun that also injured the film's director, Joel Souza.

While tearing up about the situation, the Motherless Brooklyn star maintained he wasn't negligent during the situation and that live bullets should have never been on the set in the first place.
