Which animals come to your mind when you think of a beach? Crabs, turtles and snails probably. But have you ever thought of finding a snake on a coastline? Well, that is what just happened with actor Alec Baldwin.
The 64 year old actor recently spotted a snake on a beach and recorded a video of it, which he later posted on social media. Read on to watch the video and know more about the incident.
Alec Baldwin Finds a Snake on Beach
The It’s Complicated actor posted a video on his Instagram account on Sunday. The video showed a snake slithering in the sand on a beach. “Found a snake on the beach,” Baldwin captioned the video. However, he did not give any details of which beach he was visiting or when the video was taken.
Alec’s followers were petrified by the video and expressed their shock in their comments. A fan commented, “That’s gonna be an absolute no for me, dawg! What in the WHAT,” while another one wrote, “If it had happened to me, I would have run away 😱”
A fan also thought the finding to be a sign of good luck, writing, “Wow never seen that on beach. Maybe it good luck 🍀” while another thought that the snake might have gotten lost on the way to find food, writing, “Odd place for a snake? Maybe got lost chasing some food.”
The Actor is Currently Facing a Lawsuit for Accidental Firing
Alec has been in the news lately after he accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of Rust in October last year. The actor, along with the crew members, was rehearsing a scene of the film when a prop gun in his hand suddenly discharged, killing Hutchins and injuring the film’s director Joel Souza.
The cinematographer was shot in the torso; she was airlifted to a hospital in Albuquerque but died shortly. Investigations have been done to find out how a live round of ammunition reached the movie set. Hutchins’ family has filed a lawsuit against Baldwin and other members of the film, alleging that their reckless behavior and cost-cutting methods led to her unfortunate death.
Alec Says he did not Pull the Trigger
Alec believes that he will not be criminally charged as he did not pull the trigger of the gun. However, an investigation has reported that the gun could not be discharged without pulling the trigger.
The actor has put the blame on assistant director Dave Halls, who handed him the gun, and Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who served as the armorer and props assistant on set. Baldwin now asks, “Why didn’t [Reed] check that bullet? Why didn’t Halls obey her? Why did he give me the gun? Why didn’t he check? Why did he tell the crew [it was a cold gun]?”
He added, “I sincerely believe … [investigators are] going to say that this was an accident. It’s tragic. I have an impulse to say, I don’t want to see anybody suffer. I don’t want to sit there and say you know, go get her and condemn her.”
Baldwin also revealed that he was recently fired from a movie project because of the firing accident. He says the last ten months have “taken years off my life.”
