    Alec Baldwin thinks his career "could be over" following the 'Rust' shooting incident

    The 63-year-old actor - who has six young children with wife Hilaria and grown-up daughter Ireland with former spouse Kim Basinger - admitted he is unsure if it is "worth" going back to work and he'd rather focus on his family in the wake of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins losing her life and director Joel Souza being injured on the set of the Western after a gun he was handling discharged a live bullet


    He said: "My family is all I have. Honest to God, I couldn't give a s*** about my career anymore. [My career] could be over. I said to myself, 'Do I want to work much more after this? Is it worth it?"

    The Academy Award nominee was speaking on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos for his first interview since the tragedy occurred.

    Even if his career does pick up again, he "can't imagine" working on a film that "had a gun in it".

    He emotionally added: "I can't".

    But Alec was quick to insist he wasn't a "victim".

    He said: "I want to make sure that I don't come across like I'm the victim, because we have two victims here.

    "All of what happened that day leading up to this event was precipitated on one idea, and that idea is that Halyna and I had something profound in common, that is we both assumed the gun was empty, other than those dummy rounds."

    The 'Mission Impossible' star has been hit by a backlash in the wake of the tragedy and he's been having sleepless nights.

    He said: "In the 40 years I've been in this business up until that day, I've never had a problem.

    " I'm married, I got six kids, I just want to live my life in peace. And I've got all these people saying, 'You’re a murderer.' It's tough. These images have come into my mind and kept me awake at night, and I haven't slept in weeks."
