Russell Brand has reportedly purchased a gun after relocating from the United Kingdom to Los Angeles.
The 37-year-old actor ignored pleas from his mother Barbara not to get the pistol, because firing it makes him as macho as John Wayne. “I've been learning to fire guns. My mother said, ''Don't learn to fire guns, Russell,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling the Sun.
The comedian made a decision to permanently have one after practicing how to shoot, despite his parent's advice. ''Well, I've learnt and now I've got one. I mean, me, own a gun? I shouldn't really have access to hair gel but I can fire a gun if I need to,” he said.
''To be honest guns are fun. When I was learning I was firing all over the place - obviously not at people but I was hitting all these targets. I felt like John Wayne,” he added.
