Alec Baldwin who seemed to be lying low after the unfortunate shooting incident on 'Rust' set which killed Halyna Hutchins spoke to reporters and posed for photogs on October 30. He addressed the incident and reminisced his friendship with the award-winning cinematographer who was fatally shot after Baldwin discharged a "prop gun" on set which was loaded with a live lead bullet that hit Hutchins. Director Joel Souza was also injured in the shooting and has recovered. Baldwin's wife Hilaria has been spotted with him at all times recently and was present for this press interaction as well and the actor snapped at her many times.

Baldwin met with reporters in Manchester, Vermont and Hilaria appeared to be filming this interaction where he said he would support new measures restricting the use of weapons on the set of television shows and films in order to enhance worker safety. "What do you want to know?" a visibly upset Baldwin said as Hilaria held up her cell phone to record the impromptu news briefing on the side of the road which lasted for four minutes. "A woman died. She was my friend," he said.

On being asked to talk about the ongoing investigation regarding the shooting, Baldwin declined to comment saying he's been advised by Santa Fe cops to not talk about it. He also told them he's "eagerly waiting for the sheriff's department" to release their findings. "What other questions do you have other than that," he said looking exasperated. Baldwin and Hilaria both seemed irritated at a reporter who asked him if he met Hutchins' family but forgot her name. "Her name is Halyna," Hilaria said. "You don’t know her name? Come on. Halyna Hutchins," an annoyed Baldwin added.

He then continued, "I met with her husband, Matthew, and her son. Yeah, that’s right." He was then asked to describe how the meeting went to which he replied, "I wouldn't know how to characterize it." Hilaria chimed in at this point saying, "You guys, you guys, you know what? No details." Baldwin appeared agitated at Hilaria yet again and told her, "Do me a favor? I'm going to answer the question." At one point Baldwin was asked if he has any upcoming projects apart from 'Rust' to which he said, "That's irrelevant to what we're talking about." He also told reporters he doesn't think the production on 'Rust' will start again.

Reporters then asked why the Baldwin family was camping up in Vermont to which Hilaria answered, "It's private." At this point, Baldwin seemed to reach for Hilaria's right shoulder as if to gesture that he'd be the one answering the questions. He then told reporters, "That's personal! that's private" following which he asked reporters, "Anything else?". When reporters said they had nothing else to ask he requested them for some privacy. "My kids are in the car crying," he said and Hilaria added, "because you guys are following them and they know."

Baldwin added, "As a courtesy to you, I came out [to talk to you]. I’m not allowed to comment on the investigation. I talk to the cops every day." A reporter then asked if law enforcement knew where he was to which Baldwin said, "Of course." He then continued, "My point is that - I’m just asking you...we sat down as a courtesy to talk to you, now, please, would you stop following us and leave us alone?" In conclusion, he said, "We gave you everything we could possibly give you," before walking towards his car. Hilaria followed her husband to the car while telling reporters, "now turn it off."
