George Clooney has said it was 'insane' and 'infuriating' that live bullets were on the set of Alec Baldwin's film Rust, which resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
The Hollywood star, 60, added he has never heard the term 'cold gun' used to describe a firearm that is safe to use on set, after the phrase was supposedly used by the film's assistant director before handing the revolver to Baldwin.
Clooney said the fatal shooting, which also wounded director Joel Souza, was a 'terrible accident' but claimed AD David Halls should never have been near the prop gun and was in disbelief that it occurred after rigorous safety measures implemented following the on-set deaths of Brandon Lee and Jon-Erik Hexum.
He said whenever he is handed a gun on set, he opens it, shows it to the person he's pointing it at and the crew, fires it six times into the ground before handing it back to the armorer after each scene.
Speaking on the WTF podcast with Marc Maron, the actor also accused Rust of 'skimping' on costs which led to the hiring of inexperienced armorers in an apparent dig at Baldwin who was a producer on the film.
Baldwin is being sued for his alleged role in the horrific incident and has been named along with other producers in a lawsuit by the film's head of lighting Serge Svetnoy, accusing him of negligence.

I was let down to learn MLK the 3rd missed the entire point. Apparently he, too, thinks anyone in the US should be able to vote. Legal, illegal, citizen or not. He also agrees with the narrative that black people can't get government ID's and/or drivers licenses. You know, the thing everyone has that allows you to vote (if you're not a criminal).
EVERYONE VOTES OR THE US IS RACIST is the theme. Suddenly. Martin Luther King would be highly disappointed.
This is fucking pathetic.
