Megan Fox learned a thing or two about shooting long before playing gun-wielding beauty Leila in Jonah Hex.

"When I was 5 and 6 years old, [my dad and I] went target shooting with shotguns," she tells MTV News. "So I've handled a gun before – an enormous shotgun – when I was a little kid."

Guns were a way of life. "I grew up in Tennessee, and my dad, as a hobby, is a duck hunter," Fox explains. "He used to go kill ducks and bring them home, and we would eat them for the dinner ... We would barbeque them."

But the interest in guns didn't last. "As a grown adult, I don't mess around with guns at all," she says. "I have a fear of them."
