The actor, 63, is looking “to take some time to himself and re-centre himself” following the fatal incident on Thursday. 
“This was pretty devastating,” a source told PEOPLE.
“This is how he handles difficult times. Whenever something bad happens, in the short term, he removes himself from  [the] public eye.”

“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he said.
“I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family.
“My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”
