The actor-producer shot and killed the cinematographer when a pistol he was holding went off while filming the western, Rust, in New Mexico.
And the 63-year-old sobbed as she spoke to Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos in his first interview since his death in October.
In a promotional clip shared on Twitter, Baldwin this the Hutchins: “She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with her, loved by everyone with whom she worked and admired.
“Even now I find it hard to believe it just doesn’t feel real to me. “
Stephanopoulos asked, “Wasn’t that in the script for the trigger to be pulled?” “
And in comments that deepen the mystery surrounding the death, Baldwin replied, “Well the trigger wasn’t pulled, I didn’t pull the trigger…
“No, no, no, no, no, I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger, ever.” “
When asked “how did a real ball get on this plateau?” The actor replied, “I have no idea, someone put a live bullet into a gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property.” “
Stephanopoulos also asked, “You said you are not a victim, but is it the worst thing that has ever happened to you?
“Yes,” Baldwin replied.
“Because I’m thinking back, and I’m thinking ‘what could I have done?’ “
Although his answer is not in the trailer, the actor is also asked, “I think the big question, and the one you must have asked yourself a thousand times, how could this have happened?”
“You described it as one in a billion and the gun was in your hand, how do you accept that?” “
The full interview will air on ABC in the US at 1 a.m. UK time on Thursday.
