Alec Baldwin wept as he described accidentally shooting dead his cinematographer on the set of his film Rust, saying 'I didn't pull the trigger' during an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos.
Baldwin said accidentally discharging his gun and killing Halyna Hutchins was the worst thing that's ever happened to him.
'I think back, I think: 'What could I have done?' Baldwin said.
In a teaser of the interview that's set to air tomorrow at 8 a.m., Baldwin at times held his head in his hands and appeared tearful, the actor denied firing the bullet, saying the gun inexplicably went off after he picked it up.
'The trigger wasn't pulled, I didn't pull the trigger,' he said. 'I would never point a gun at anyone at point a trigger at them, never.'
Well, the single-action revolver didn't cock itself.
