Alec Baldwin has said ‘every single person’ on the set of Rust knows ‘exactly who to blame’ for Halyna Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin, 64, also said that the prop gun that shot and killed Hutchins while filming in New Mexico last October could have been fired without the trigger being pulled.

Speaking on Chris Cuomo’s podcast, he said: “I know that every single person on the set of the film knows what happened, and the people who are talking loudest about what happened or speculating about what happened were not on the set of the film.

“They are talking on and on and on about what if this and what if that and have dined out on this and the thing that they have in common is nobody was there.

“Everybody who was there, they know exactly what happened. They know exactly who’s to blame.

“The fact that this has taken so long has been quite troublesome to me.”

According to The Mirror, the FBI report on Hutchins’ death said the prop weapon ‘could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger’.

Baldwin has strongly disputed this and has always denied that he did so. He said a bullet could be fired without the trigger being pulled through a process called ‘fanning’.

He continued: “This did not come from me, this came from the DA’s Office themselves.

“If you pull the hammer back, and you don’t lock the hammer; if you pull the hammer back pretty far – in old Western movies you’d see someone fan the hammer of the gun.

“The hammer didn’t lock. You pulled it back to an extent where it would fire the bullet without you pulling the trigger, without you locking the hammer.”

Rust Movie Productions was fined $136,793 USD (£104,810), the maximum allowable by state law in New Mexico.

The fine came following a six-month investigation by the state’s environment department.
