Hilaria Baldwin goes out for a walk in New York after Alec’s confrontation with reporter

Hilaria Baldwin appeared to be in good spirits as she enjoyed an evening stroll with her children on Tuesday evening – despite the outing coming just one day after her husband Alec was caught on camera charging at a reporter who questioned him about the fatal Rust shooting. 

The 37-year-old mother-of-six stepped out to get some fresh air in New York City with three of her children, with images showing Hilaria laughing and smiling as they walked along the sidewalk alongside a woman who appeared to be a family nanny. 

Hilaria, whose real name is Hillary Thomas, bundled up against the cold weather in a $2,795 white shearling coat from Moncler, which she wore over a pair of blue jeans, before finishing her look off with some $332 black pearl-embellished shearling mules from Alameda Turquesa. 

She was joined on the walk by her three oldest children – daughter Carmen, eight, and sons Rafael, six, and Leonardo, five – all of whom were wrapped up warm in heavy coats and were seen laughing and joking with their mother. 

Hilaria’s light-hearted family stroll comes just 24 hours after she and her husband Alec, 63, were filmed in the midst of an altercation with a New York Post reporter who attempted to grill the actor about his claims over the fatal on-set shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Reporter Jon Levine shared a video of Alec charging at him outside of director Woody Allen’s Manhattan townhouse on Monday evening, brandishing an umbrella as he stormed towards him – before Hilaria stepped in to hold him back. 

Alec made no physical contact with Levine, who began questioning the actor as he arrived at Allen’s home. 

‘Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City?’ he asked, before Hilaria stepped in and snapped: ‘I asked you to leave.’ 

When Levine asked who lived at the property, peering around the other side of the actor’s wife as she asked him again to ‘please go away,’ Alec turned on his heels and sprang toward the reporter. 

‘You’re not allowed to photograph onto someone’s private home,’ Alec shouted, gesturing with the umbrella gripped tightly in his hand and sending Levine backing up onto the sidewalk. 

Hilaria then stepped in and grabbed her husband by the shoulder, pulling him away from the reporter, before Alec turned back towards the front door of the home.   

‘Go away, stop it,’ Hilaria said as a man in a white dress shirt and tie opened the door to Allen’s home and Alec stepped inside, gesturing for her to join him.

‘Did you really not pull the trigger? Do you believe it went off without you pulling the trigger? Was it a malfunction?’ Levine asked from the sidewalk as the door closed behind the Baldwins. 

Levine’s questions were posed in response to an interview that Alec did with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, in which he tearfully maintained that he did not pull the trigger of the gun that killed Rust cinematographer Hutchins on October 21 on the New Mexico set of the movie.   

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud,’ he said. 

‘Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who it is, but it’s not me.’

He also revealed that he didn’t know she’d died until hours later, at the end of his police interview when he was photographed in the sheriff’s parking lot in Santa Fe, and that he’s been told by people ‘in the know’ that it is ‘highly unlikely’ he’ll face criminal charges.

The interview marked Alec’s first on-screen sit-down since the on-set tragedy, in which film director Joel Souza was also injured.

In the wake of the fatal shooting, Alec and his family retreated to a home in Vermont, where they spent more than a week sheltering from the media storm before returning to New York with their children, where they have been seen out and about on a number of occasions – most recently at the home of Allen.  

Alec is known to have a close relationship with the director and has starred in a number of his films, including To Rome with Love in 2012 and Blue Jasmine in 2013. 

The outspoken actor has been a staunch defender of his director friend through claims that the 85-year-old molested his daughter Dylan Farrow, which were made public in 1992 and brought back into the public eye with the 2021 Netflix documentary, Allen v. Farrow.

Now, as Baldwin faces national scrutiny for his actions on the Rust set, Allen invited the disgraced actor to his family home, assessed at over $17 million, where he lives with wife Soon-Yi and youngest daughter, Manzie.

Baldwin said he ‘would have killed [himself]’ if he felt responsible for shooting Hutchins in the Thursday ABC interview, where he discussed the aftermath of the fatal shooting for the first time since it took place. 

‘She’s getting me to position the gun – everything is at her direction. I draw the gun, to her marker. I’m not shooting to the camera lens, I’m shooting just off. In her direction. This was a completely incidental shot, that may not have ended up in the film.’

Baldwin says he cocked the gun, and was discussing with Hutchins how it looked on camera.

‘I’m just showing. I go, ‘How ’bout that? Does that work? You see that? Do you see that?’  And then she goes, “Yeah, that’s good.”

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud. They don’t have their earplugs in. 

‘No one was – the gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun. If they were cosmetic rounds, nothing with a charge at all, a flash round, nothing. 

‘She goes down, I thought to myself, “Did she faint?” The notion that there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me ’till probably 45 minutes to an hour later.’

He added: ‘Well, she’s laying there and I go, “Did she hit by wadding? Was there a blank?” Sometimes those blank rounds have a wadding inside that packs, it’s like a cloth that packs the gunpowder in. Sometimes wadding comes out, it can hit people, and it could feel like a little bit of a poke. 

‘But no one could understand. Did she have a heart attack? Because remember the idea that someone put a live bullet in the gun was not even in reality.” 

‘I never pulled the trigger. No, no, no. You would never do that.’

But many have continued to question Alec’s version of events since the interview aired on Thursday. 

Bryan W. Carpenter, a weapons armorer who works for Dark Thirty Film Services, said he was skeptical that Baldwin never pulled the trigger.

‘In order to make it fire, you have to put your thumb up onto the hammer, cock the hammer all the way back, and then as the hammer is completely cocked back, then you pull the trigger and then the gun fires,’ Carpenter told Fox News. ‘So that’s very important because that gun had to have two step process to fire. It had to be cocked and the trigger pulled to fire.’

Carpenter continued: ‘Once you cock the hammer back on one of those old west guns, it doesn’t take a lot to set that trigger off.’

His comments come after Santa Fe Sheriff Adan Mendoza told the outlet that ‘guns don’t just go off. So whatever needs to happen to manipulate the firearm, [Baldwin] did that and it was in his hands.’ 

Some on social media were also skeptical of Baldwin’s claim that he didn’t pull the trigger. 

‘The only way any firearm is going to fire is if the trigger mechanism is pulled or jolted hard on older weapons. I.E. dropped, banged hard,’ tweeted one user. ‘Do you truly believe people are so stupid to believe your nonsense?’

‘Good grief his “acting” is horrendous,’ tweeted another. ‘Western style handguns either require the shooter cock the weapon first or don’t. Either way, this weapon had the trigger pulled. It wasn’t dropped.

‘@AlecBaldwin had it in his hands and killed Halyna and wounded another. Man up, already.’

Detectives are now investigating whether Seth Kenney, a 51-year-old Hollywood veteran who was supposed to provide the film with dummy rounds and blanks, may have sent recycled bullets from a previous set, according to an affidavit filed by the Sante Fe County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators there continue to probe Hutchins’ death, and have yet to file any criminal charges.
