Flunks lie test after TV claims he didn’t shoot movie staffer

ACTOR Alec Baldwin is “blatantly lying” about his role in cinematographer Halyna Hutchins’ gunshot death on a New Mexico movie set, according to a lie detection expert who analyzed the actor’s shocking responses to questions during a TV tell-all.

Certified technician Michael Sylvestre, who uses a superaccurate DecepTech Voice Stress Analysis machine to help in criminal investigations, reviewed seven key voice clips taken from Baldwin’s Dec. 3 sit-down with ABC newsman George Stephanopoulos and concluded the former movie matinee idol is spewing untruths about the tragedy.

When the 63-year-old Boss Baby star insisted he only pointed the antique Colt .45 revolver at Hutchins because the camera gal “told me to,” a graph measuring vocal stress spiked, indicating a falsehood, according to the analyst.

“He is lying about how he was told to hold the gun” before it fired the single bullet that killed Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza on Oct. 21, concludes Sylvestre.

The deadly shooting came hours after seven members of the camera crew quit in protest of late pay and safety conditions on the movie, titled Rust.

The crewmen claim there were two accidental firearms discharges before Hutchins’ killing, yet the producers kept pushing the pace of filming.
