Brad Pitt has revealed that he’s always had a respect for weaponry.
The 50-year-old star told Radio Times magazine that he’s grown up with guns.
“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up inheriting your ancestors’ weapons. My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten.”
In fact, Pitt owned his first air gun when he was in nursery, received his shotgun when he was six and had fired it by the time he was only eight.
“The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon.” It seems like his children know weapons too.
“Maddox knows so much about tanks that when we first started on the movie, I was asking him for information.”
