Hilaria Baldwin stands next to her husband Alec as the couple wait to see if he will be charged for his part in the deadly accidental shooting on the set of Rust.
The 38-year-old shared a photo of the couple’s hands intertwined with a loving caption on the post.
“I’m not going anywhere,” he wrote. ‘Take all the time to be sad. I’m here.’
Hand in hand: Hilaria Baldwin supports Alec in this difficult time in his life
His post came just a day after Baldwin opened up about the accidental shooting on Rust’s set in an interview with CNN.
In the interview, Baldwin made it clear that he did not feel that he, or anyone else who worked on the set, would be blamed for the shooting that took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
Speaking about the ordeal, Baldwin said: ‘That private investigator, as you probably know, had no difficulty gaining access to the sheriff’s department staff, and that person told us, in quotes, that we have known in the department since January that Alec would not be charged with a crime.’
He continued, “I’m pretty sure none of them should ever work on a film set again. I honestly think… [investigators are] I’m going to say this was an accident. It’s tragic.
Baldwin’s attorney added that “it would be a huge miscarriage of justice” if he were charged after the deadly shooting.

Despite Baldwin’s own certainty, a recent report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation made the matter of charges a little more murky.
Last week, the FBI released a report saying the gun could not possibly have gone off without Baldwin deliberately firing it.
It means he could still face criminal charges for the incident, and the Santa Fe sheriff’s department has confirmed the case will go to the district attorney.
Baldwin said the whole experience has taken “years off his life” and that he is carrying the weight of Halyna Hutchins’ death.

“Somebody died, and it was preventable,” he said in the interview. ‘It was so unnecessary. Every day of my life I think about that.
The 30 Rock star credited his wife with helping him keep his composure over the past 10 months.
‘If I didn’t have my wife, I don’t know where I’d be right now… If I didn’t have her, I probably would have quit, retired, gone, you know, sold everything I owned, got a house in the middle of nowhere and, As you know, I found another thing to do, sell real estate,” he explained.
The Beetlejuice star also opened up about his professional turmoil in the interview.
“I got fired from another job yesterday,” he said. ‘There was everything ready to go to the movies, get on a plane. I’ve been talking to these guys for months and they told me yesterday that we didn’t want to do the movie with you because of this.

Meanwhile, gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez Reed said in a statement to DailyMail.com that the FBI has not yet tested the actual bullets that killed Hutchins for fingerprints to determine how they ended up on set.
She said: ‘The main question on this case from the beginning has been where did the live rounds that ended up on the Rust set come from? The sheriff’s office made a conscious decision not to pursue this question by refusing to ask the FBI to analyze any of the rounds for fingerprints or DNA.
We now know for sure that there were live rounds on the set. It is inconceivable that the Sheriff would not seek answers to this fundamental question and poses a serious problem with the entire investigation. For a long time we have searched for this answer and we will not give up the search for the truth to find it.’
The former 30 Rock star went on to blame Reed, ammunition supplier Seth Kenney, and assistant director Dave Halls for the shooting, arguing, and emphasizing in an Instagram post, that he cocked the gun and removed the hammer, but didn’t press down. the trigger.
Lisa Torraco, Halls’ attorney, says Baldwin wants to shift the blame: “Baldwin is pointing fingers at others because the evidence is pointing at him.” Halls is not responsible. Everybody has to stop.
“People just point fingers at Halls because they don’t want to take responsibility for being wrong. Halls is a scapegoat. People need to look at the evidence.
