The actor recalled how everything turned into a nightmare in a jiffy and said:
“I sat on that bench, and I said, ‘This movie has made me love making movies again'. I really thought we were onto something. And then this gun goes off. Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property. Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can't say who that is, but I know it's not me."
According to the father of six, since the shooting, he has been having trouble sleeping as he keeps wondering who's fault it was and boldly said he is not responsible for the shooting.
When asked if he was feeling guilty about the shooting, the actor said:
"No. no. I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible, and I don't say that lightly. I have dreams about this constantly now. I go through my day, and I make it through the day. Then I collapse at the end of the day. Emotionally, I collapse.”
