Brad Pitt may have played a gun-totting rebel in films such as Inglourious Basterds and Killing Them Softly, but he’s just adamant on bearing arms in real life as his onscreen personas.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail‘s Live magazine, the 48-year-old revealed that he “doesn’t feel safe” without his trusty gun.

“America is a country founded on guns. It’s in our DNA. It’s very strange, but I feel better having a gun. I really do,” he said. “I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel the house is completely safe, if I don’t have one hidden somewhere. That’s my thinking, right or wrong.”

What does his fiancee Angelina Jolie think of Pitt’s love for guns?

The 37-year-old Mr. & Mrs. Smith star agrees with him.

In a 2008 interview with Live, Jolie admitted they have a gun in their shared home in order to protect their kids.

“I bought original, real guns of the type we used in Tomb Raider for security. Brad and I are not against having a gun in the house, and we do have one. And yes, I’d be able to use it if I had to,” she revealed. “I could handle myself.”

The A-listers aren’t the only celebs to have openly admitted to bearing arms. From Johnny Depp to onscreen cowboy Clint Eastwood, many Hollywood stars are exercising their rights as Americans to own and use guns.
