Alec Baldwin has undergone hip replacement surgery after having suffered with “intense chronic pain,” his wife said on social media.
“We have been through so much together … as your partner and as you heal, I want so very much for you to leave this very intense chronic pain chapter behind and improve your quality of life,” she wrote.
She thanked doctors and hospital staff members for “bringing him safely through this.”
Baldwin commented on the post: “And you. Thanks to you.”
It has been a tumultuous few years for Baldwin, who was accused of involuntary manslaughter in the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his Western movie “Rust” in New Mexico in October 2021.
He was rehearsing with a pistol for a scene when the gun went off, killing Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.
Last month, New Mexico prosecutors formally dismissed charges, saying "new facts" demanded further investigation.
Prosecutors dismissed “without prejudice” the case, meaning new evidence could prompt them to refile charges.
