Alec Baldwin 'Couldn't Give a S***' About His Career After 'Rust' Shooting

Alec Baldwin has said he "couldn't give a s***" about his career following the fatal shooting on the set of the movie Rust.

It is now almost two months since cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died on the film's set in New Mexico after a prop gun held by the actor discharged and fatally hit her and injured the movie's director, Joel Souza, as well.

Now Baldwin has given his first TV interview since the tragedy where he discussed the shooting, and also reflected on the future of his career.

In an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that aired on Thursday night, the 63-year-old said: "My family is all I have. Honest to God, I couldn't give a s*** about my career anymore."

Stephanopoulos then asked the actor if he thought his career in Hollywood was "over."

"It could be," said Baldwin, adding: "I said to myself, 'Do I want to work much more after this? Is it worth it?'"

The actor also said it is unlikely that he will ever want to work on a project that involved guns again.

He went on to say, per People: "I want to make sure that I don't come across like I'm the victim, because we have two victims here.

"All of what happened that day leading up to this event was precipitated on one idea, and that idea is that Halyna and I had something profound in common, that is we both assumed the gun was empty, other than those dummy rounds."

During the interview, Baldwin asserted that he did not pull the trigger on the prop gun that killed Hutchins.

"The trigger wasn't pulled. I didn't pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger on them, never," Baldwin said, visibly shaken recounting the incident.

"I'm holding the gun where she told me to hold it," he said, before explaining how he pulled back and later released the hammer of the gun.

"I said to her, 'In this scene, I'm going to cock the gun, do you want to see that,'" Baldwin explained. He said Hutchins told him to cock the gun.

"I let go of the hammer and the gun goes off. I never pulled the trigger," he said.

Baldwin added that he "would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them."

"The notion there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me until about 45 minutes later," he said.

Authorities are currently investigating how live rounds ended up on the movie set.

Speaking about Hutchins, Baldwin described her as the "loveliest woman."

"One of the loveliest women I've ever worked with and one of the most professional in terms of her demeanor," he said.
