Alec Baldwin marked the beginning of 2022 by reflecting on his involvement in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, which he called the "worst situation" he's ever been a part of.

On October 21, while rehearsing for a scene on set in Santa Fe, Baldwin was handed a gun by the assistant director and held it up at the camera.

The shot accidentally killed 42-year-old cinematographer Hutchins and injured 48-year-old director Joel Souza.

According to a search warrant affidavit, the assistant director shouted "cold gun" before handing Baldwin the gun and was unaware that the weapon was loaded with live rounds.

The actor, 63, posted a lengthy 13-minute video on Instagram on New Year's Day, in which he spoke directly to the camera and shared his hopes for the coming year.

"Another chance to let go of anything that is hurting us. Destroying us," he captioned the video.

"I've had more people who have been kind and thoughtful and generous of spirit than I've had people who are malignant about the death Halyna Hutchins," Baldwin said.

"I'm not afraid to say that, and to couch that in some euphemisms — somebody died very tragically. And I've gotten so much, I mean so much, goodwill from people. It's just incredible," he added.

He added: "This has been surely the worst situation I've ever been involved with and I'm very hopeful that the people in charge with investigating this whole thing get to the truth as soon as possible. No one wants the truth more than I do."

Although the Emmy winner admitted that he's not a "New Year's resolution person," he also shared his goals for 2022.

"But the one thing I do want to consider very carefully in this coming year and to really push myself is in terms of trying to not allow the negativity in my life to affect me," Baldwin explained.

He went on: "I've been having some very interesting phone calls with some very interesting people who I will not name, but some of them rather well-known people who deal in all kinds of behavioral, philosophical, religious, spiritual, meditation, all kinds of ways to attain a state of mind where you really short-circuit a lot of the negative in your life. And that's what I want.

"My goal in the new year is peace, awareness, consciousness, deepening my relationships with the people that I love, pulling them closer to me, and improving relationships with people I care about but maybe I don't get to see much of them anymore."

Baldwin revealed he recently took a trip to the west coast to spend time with 26-year-old daughter Ireland, whom he shares with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
