Megan Fox Had Experience With Guns Long Before Her Jonah Hex Role

“As a grown adult, I don’t mess around with guns at all. I have a fear of them,” she told MTV News. “But 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.”

Fox’s dad made sure that from an early age his daughter was well-acquainted with his weapon of choice. “He taught me how to shoot a shotgun,” she said. “When I was 5 and 6 years old, we went target shooting with shotguns. So I’ve handled a gun before — an enormous shotgun — when I was a little kid.”

Well I guess Hollywood caused “Toe Thumbs” to jump on the hoplophobe bandwagon if thats what she means by having a fear of them. A healthy fear is good, but if she turned into one of those people that thinks guns just go off by themselves etc… that’s just annoying.

At least her dad tried.

Right,
I wonder how many “closet shooters” there are among the Hollywood crowd. You know some of those guys must get a taste for shooting when they train for thriller shoot-em-ups and pick up a few irons for their ranch in Montana.

Yea I’m guessing that some of those that were against guns, get trained on them for a role and fall in love with them. Like you said a lot of them probably own land somewhere where they can shoot to their heart’s content.

I am confused as to whom this “Toe Thumbs” is.

Look at her thumb. It looks like an old man’s big toe.

LOL an old man’s big toe… that is even funnier than just saying “it looks like a toe”

I may not like her choice, but she gets credit for having been exposed to and shooting guns before hating them. That’s more than we can say for a lot of hoplophobes.

That’s very true. I wonder if Paul Helmke of the Brady campaign has even shot a gun.

Hey….she does have toe thumbs. I would have never noticed unless she was tweaking a nipple.

I have a fear of guns. I think that guns in the hands of untrustworthy people are the most frightening things around. Ramp it up to eleven if it’s pointed at me or someone I know/ is not a criminal.

Same. It’s the irrational fears I have a problem with.
