Alec Baldwin Speaks at First Public Event Since 'Rust' Shooting

Alec Baldwin just made his first appearance at a public event since the tragic shooting on the set of his movie Rust.

The 63-year-old actor served as the master of ceremonies at the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights charity’s Ripple of Hope Award Gala on Thursday night (December 9) in New York City.

Alec was joined at the event by Hilaria Baldwin and the late RFK‘s daughter Kerry Kennedy.

“Thank you for all coming out tonight. It’s great to be together in person. It’s great to be with everyone. My wife and I have six kids, anything to get out of the house for 30 minutes,” Alec said on stage, according to People.

Kerry said, “First of all, I want to begin by saying how really, really touched I am that Alec Baldwin came here to be with us.”

Alec and I met at a cocktail party in New York in the 1980s and a few weeks later I called him and asked him to attend a tournament. He said yes,” she added. “He’s been saying yes ever since. I think you must have missed the terrible twos because you just don’t know how to say no. He’s there. He’s there in good times and bad, in your good times and bad and his good times and bad, he always shows up. I’m so proud.”

Alec has shared a note from the crew of Rust amid reports from set.
