In director Jimmy Hayward's upcoming adaptation of "Jonah Hex," Megan Fox portrays a prostitute named Lilah opposite Josh Brolin in the title role. And while Brolin clearly gets the lion's share of the action, early trailers have revealed that Fox will get her chance for some gunplay as well.
While Fox has previously told MTV News that her character would shoot people in "Jonah Hex," she neglected to mention her previous experience with guns until a recent press junket.
"As a grown adult, I don't mess around with guns at all," confessed Fox. "I have a fear of them. But as a child, I grew up in the South — I grew up in Tennessee — and my dad as a hobby... he used to go kill ducks and bring them home and we would eat them for dinner."
"He taught me how to use a shotgun," continued Fox. "When I was like five or six years old, we went target shooting with shotguns."
"So, I've handled a gun before," added Fox. "But in the movie, it's my first time. It was actually way more difficult than I anticipated it being. It's hard."
"Jonah Hex" hits theaters this Friday, June 18. In addition to Fox and Brolin, John Malkovich, Michael Fassbender, Will Arnett, John Gallagher Jr. and Wes Bentley round out the cast.
