Alec Baldwin is one of the most famous and well-liked actors in Hollywood, with a career that spans more than four decades. However, Alec Baldwin’s net worth could be in danger after he was charged with involuntary manslaughter for accidentally killing a cinematographer.
The veteran actor was charged with two counts of unintentional manslaughter on January 19, 2023. Soon after, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed when a prop gun that was loaded with a real bullet went off during rehearsals for the movie Rust, in which Baldwin was the lead actor and producer.
“During the initial investigation, it was determined that actor/producer Alec Baldwin was the person that fired the weapon,” Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said during a press conference.
