Brad Pitt may appear to be a liberal, gun-control supporting democratic, but it appears you can’t take the good ol’ country boy out of this Hollywood star.
Pitt was born in Oklahoma and later moved to Missouri, revealing he has a long history with firearms.
Pitt said he fired his first handgun at the age of eight and grew up with guns that helped him learn to be responsible with them.
Pitt, who stars in the World War II drama “Fury”, has great respect for weapons thanks to his family.
“My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten… The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon.”

Pitt plays a respected tank commander in David Ayer’s new movie and says his young son Maddox was very interested in heavy artillery during filming.
The proud dad said, “Maddox knows so much about tanks that when we first started on the movie, I was asking him for information.”
The film “Fury” releases in theaters on Friday, October 17.
