Alec Baldwin May Have Responded To Halyna Hutchins’ Husband Calling Him Out

February 25, 2022 / Posted by:

Yesterday Halyna Hutchins’ widower, Matt Hutchins, went on TODAY to discuss his wife’s horrific accidental shooting death on the set of Rust. Matt, who’s one of the people suing Alec Baldwin for Hylana’s wrongful death, told Hoda Kotb that watching Alec’s December interview with ABC News made him feel “so angry.” Matt says he thinks Alec is playing the victim and shifting the blame to everybody but himself.

Alec, who was starring in and producing Rust, has yet to publicly respond to Matt’s interview (“Thank Christ” -Alec’s lawyers), but he did tweet an ambiguous Buddha quote. About how one should not “tell a deliberate lie, even in jest.” Later Alec tweeted a follow-up, explaining that, in Buddhism, “being truthful goes beyond simply not telling lies.” Heh? OK, Alec, what did Buddha think about punching a photographer? Refusing to stop playing Words with Friends so an airplane can take off? Leaving a voicemail calling your daughter a “thoughtless little pig”?

Here’s Alec’s first post. I’d embed the actual tweet, but his account is private (unless you’re one of the lucky one million who already follow him), via Page Six:

“In the same way, Rahula,’ the Buddha continued, ‘when anyone feels no shame in telling a deliberate lie, there is no evil, I tell you, they will not do. Thus, Rahula, you should train yourself, “I will not tell a deliberate lie, even in jest.”

And here’s follow-up tweet, which he reposted to his Instagram:

I’m trying to use my once-sharp critical thinking skills, now heavily weakened by marijuana and inactivity, to decipher what the hell Alec is talking about, but I’m drawing a blank. So he’s saying he’s telling the truth about his involvement in Hylana’s death? Is that it? Whatever he means, it’s coming off as smug and faux-enlightened. The Alec Baldwin Special.

In other Alec news, Dirt reports that he and his wife Hilaria Baldwin just bought a $1.75 antique farmhouse in Arlington, Vermont. After the Rust shooting in October, the couple and their six kids fled Manhattan and relocated to Manchester, Vermont, where they rented a former bed and breakfast. They shopped for houses in the area, before settling on their new digs in Arlington, via Dirt:

The rural escape’s roughly 3,600-square-foot main house, a fully restored antique farmhouse that dates to the late 18th century, includes three bedrooms, three baths, a fireplace-warmed tavern room and, for those especially cold winter days, a sauna. There’s also a charming four-bedroom and two-bath guest cottage, a horse barn, and a huge, postcard-perfect red dairy barn. Presumably, some renovations will be needed to house the entirety of the Baldwin clan, which includes a retinue of nannies and assistants.

Dirt points out that Hilaria’s grandfather was a “prominent long-time resident of Arlington,” which gave me quite a shock! Sorry, I’m still getting used to the fact that our girl isn’t Spanish and her abuelo is not from Barcelona. Dios mío!
