Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Baldwin showed off their love in the actor’s first red carpet appearance since the “Rust” shooting charges were dropped.
Posing for photographers at the 2023 PEN America Spring Literary Gala at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on Thursday, “30 Rock” graduates and yoga instructors embraced each other cordially.
Alec, 65, was seen kissing Hilaria, 39, sweetly on the forehead, and at another point they crossed their arms.
Hilaria was smiling softly against the shutters, while Alec was rather patient during his appearance, maintaining a serious expression on his face.
The “Saturday Night Live” graduate looked elegant in a classic black tuxedo and a black bowtie, and his wife was stylish in a monochrome shag dress.
Hilaria shared photos of them going out on Instagram on Friday, saying, “She got mad at me because I took her out of the elevator for a photo… it was worth it.
“We get dressed so seldom now that Edu said to me, ‘Mom, what’s in your eyes?’ asked. I called her ‘Make up’… I feel judged by a 2-year-old 🤣”, she added, referring to one of her seven children.
Hilaria also wrote that her husband needed to help her “figure out how to untie the back” of the Guvanch Agajumayev dress. [her] Except this.”
“This means I can be in my pajamas until I get help from someone else tomorrow 🆘,” he joked.
The couple’s trip filled with PDAs marks Alec’s first red carpet appearance since April was cleared by the shooting death of 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October 2021.

He was charged with manslaughter after a prop gun he used on set for the western unexpectedly fired a live bullet, killing Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.
Alec’s attorneys Luke Nikas and Alex Spiro told The Post: “We are pleased with the decision to dismiss the lawsuit against Alec Baldwin and encourage an appropriate investigation into the facts and circumstances of this tragic accident.”
However, special prosecutor Kari Morrissey told CNN that the dismissal was “temporary pending further investigation” given that one of Alec’s other defendants, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the film’s guardian, has not yet been acquitted.
Alec resumed filming for “Rust” days after the charges were dismissed and shared how “grateful” he was to be back on set in Montana. Later, photos emerged where he was “shot” and “hung” while shooting a scene for the movie.
Shortly after the Oscar nominee learned that the charges were dropped, he thanked Hilaria for supporting him.
“I owe this woman everything I have,” he added, under a photo of him hugging his wife at dinner, his lawyer added, “(and you, Luke).”
Alec and Hilaria got married in 2012 and share Carmen, 9, Rafael, 7, Leonardo, 6, Romeo, 5, Eduardo, 2, Lucia, 2, and Ilaria, 7 months old. Alec also shares his 27-year-old daughter Ireland with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.
