Actor Alec Baldwin erupted at a New York Post reporter on Monday evening for asking him questions and had to be restrained by his wife.

Reporter Jon Levine ran into Baldwin while walking around New York City and asked him what brought him to the area.

Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, immediately tried to get Levine to leave as she recorded him.

Alec Baldwin erupted, pointing an umbrella at Levine and angrily walking toward him.

“You are not allowed to photograph onto somebody’s private home,” Alec Baldwin said as he had to be restrained by his wife. “You can’t photograph onto somebody’s private home.”


Baldwin did not answer questions about recent remarks that he made during an ABC News interview where he claimed that he did not pull the trigger on a firearm that discharged a round on the set of “Rust” that hit and killed Halyna Hutchins, a cinematographer.

“Do you feel guilt?” ABC News host George Stephanopoulos asked Baldwin during an exclusive interview.

“No. No,” Baldwin said. “I feel that there is, I feel that someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me.”

“I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible, and I don’t say that lightly,” he added.

When pressed by Stephanopoulos about how “it wasn’t in the script for the trigger to be pulled,” Baldwin responded by claiming, “Well, the trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger.”

“I cock the gun. I go, ‘Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?’” Baldwin said. “And then I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off. I let go of the hammer of the gun, the gun goes off.”

“So you never pulled the trigger?” Stephanopoulos pressed.

“No, no, no, no,” Baldwin claimed. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never.”


JON LEVINE, REPORTER: Wait, Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City?


LEVINE: Mr. Baldwin, why, who’s here?

HILARIA BALDWIN: I asked you to go away. Please go away.

ALEC BALDWIN: You are not allowed to photograph onto somebody’s private home.

LEVINE: This is not–

ALEC BALDWIN: You can’t photograph onto somebody’s private home.

LEVINE: This is not [inaudible]– this is public property.

HILARIA BALDWIN: Go away. Stop it.

LEVINE: Who’s here? Did you really not pull the trigger? Do you believe it went off without you pulling the trigger? Was it a malfunction?
