Megan Fox was taught how to use a gun when she was five.
The 24-year-old actress had to use firearms in scenes for her new movie ‘Jonah Hex’ but admits she had already had some experience with them while growing up.
She said: "As a child, I grew up in the South. I grew up in Tennessee, and my dad, as a hobby, is a duck hunter. He used to go kill ducks and bring them home, and we would eat them for dinner ... we would barbecue them.
"He taught me how to shoot a shotgun. When I was five and six years old, we went target shooting with shotguns. So I've handled a gun before — an enormous shotgun — when I was a little kid."
Despite her upbringing, Megan insists she’s not comfortable around weapons because they scare her.
She added to MTV News: "As a grown adult, I don't mess around with guns at all. I have a fear of them.”
Megan recently admitted she struggled to get to grips with the guns she had to use in the movie because of her small hands.
She said: "Actually there was one gunfight scene that the stunt team had been choreographing for, I think, a couple of weeks, and I showed up and I had a minute to get it down and rehearse it and it was really difficult for me to shoot the old-style gunslinger guns because I have tiny little baby hands.
"The guns are really large and really heavy, so just the physicality of actually having to pull that off was really difficult. This was more action-heavy for me."
