Brad Pitt Owned an Air Gun When He Was 6


Hollywood actor Brad Pitt reveals he’s always known his weaponry.

The 50-year-old star told Radio Times magazine that he’s actually grown up with guns, and owned one very early in the childhood.

“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, he said he owned his first air gun when he was just a kid, received a shotgun when he was six and had fired it by the time he was eight.

“The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon.” It seems like his children are respectful about weapons too.

“Maddox knows so much about tanks that when we first started on the movie, I was asking him for information.”
