Alec Baldwin Denies Pulling Trigger & Firing At 'Rust' Crew

Alec Baldwin went viral after he shot and killed a crew member while filming on the set of Rust and injuring another.

Now, he says that he did not aim the prop gun and pull the trigger at crew members.

"I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them, never," he said in a clip of the interview which airs tonight. 

"Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property... I think back and I think of what could I have done?" Baldwin continues. "She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with [her] and liked by everyone who worked with [her], and admired... I mean, even now I find it hard to believe that [she's gone]. It doesn't seem real to me."

Movie director Halyna Hutchins was killed. The interview is his first since the deadly shooting.
