Alec Baldwin has been devastated ever since the accidental killing of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the sets of his film Rust.
The actor, who attended a candel vigil for the late crew member, was inconsolable for hours.
As a result, Baldwin is pulling out of all other projects "to take some time to himself and re-center himself," as he has during rough times in the past.
"This was pretty devastating," an insider said. "This is how he handles difficult times. Whenever something bad happens, in the short term, he removes himself from [the] public eye."
The insider went on to reveal that the actor cried and was 'inconsolable' for hours at the candle vigil held in remembrance of Hutchins.
He was "hysterical and absolutely inconsolable for hours" following the shooting: "Everyone knows this was an accident, but he's absolutely devastated.
"[Baldwin] is someone who really deeply cares, so he can be very hard on himself," the source added. "That's true in general, in situations nowhere near as serious as this. But in this situation, it's a whole other level because of the loss of life involved."
"It's going to take him time to figure all this out," they shared. "He needs to take a while to himself, to be with his family."
