Hilaria Baldwin has supported her husband Alec Baldwin after his controversial interview following Halyna Hutchins’ death on the set of Rust.

Cinematographer Hutchins was killed on the set when when a prop gun containing a live round went off. Alec was holding the gun.

The 30 Rock actor, 63, has since given a controversial TV interview on ABC News.

Sharing a photo of herself and her husband kissing, Hilaria, 37, wrote: ‘”I am here, I love you, and I will take care of you.” These were the only words that came to me when we learned Halyna had died.

‘I remember saying that phrase over and over again. The horrific loss, the torture to her family, and you, my husband, somehow put in this unthinkable nightmare. That moment, etched in my memory, photographers surrounding you, on the phone with me, documenting your agony.

‘I couldn’t be near you to hug you, our connection over the phone, a visual for the world to see.’

Referencing the interview, Hilaria, who shares six children with Alec, went on: ‘I was afraid for you to open up because I’ve seen your spirit crushed, your mental health shattered, your soul in unimaginable pain. Sometimes I wonder how much one body, one mind can take. I don’t want to lose you.

‘You know yourself and wanted to speak. I am proud of you.’

She continued: ‘So I go back to, “I am here, I love you, and I’m going to take care of you.”

‘We honor Halyna and her family. To hopefully figure out how this happened and whatever we can do to make sure it never happens again.

‘My Alec, I am here to heal any of your pain that I can. I am not going anywhere. Onward to being Alec and Hilaria, messy, emotions strong, but lots and lots of love—until the very end.’

Following the shooting, Hutchins was taken to hospital but died of her injuries, with tributes pouring in over the news.

Director Joel Souza was also injured but later released from hospital.

Appearing in a sit-down interview on ABC, Alec detailed the moment of Hutchins’ death, insisting he didn’t pull the trigger.

The host asked: ‘You felt shock, you felt anger, you felt sadness. Do you feel guilt?’

‘No, no,’ he replied. ‘I feel that there is… Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me. 

‘Honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible… I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible.

‘And I don’t say that lightly.’
