Hollywood actor George Clooney has confessed he is “scared” of guns even though he has regularly used them on screen.

The 49-year-old actor has become accustomed to handling firearms, both through his movie work and his upbringing in Kentucky, but insists he still feels uncomfortable around them.

“Guns, rifles – there’s something frightening about them. Still. Although I’ve grown up with them in Kentucky and although I’ve had to use them in a lot of my films. I’ve learnt to use them, but I’m still scared of them,” quoted Clooney as saying.

The “Men Who Stare At Ghosts” star also insisted he isn’t worried about getting older or losing his looks as he thinks his advancing years mean he is offered more diverse acting roles.

“That’s down to lack of success. No, really. Being hugely successful in a certain role or genre comes with the risk of being typecast. So far I was lucky – in moderation,” he added.

“The second reason is my advanced age. I’m literally aging before your faces I’m not vain though. I welcome it, the ageing. Otherwise I would have coloured my hair by now.

    For such an intelligent and talented actor, it is disappointing to see this. However, this is the prevailing mindset of Hollywood and academia, which has certainly been involved in the anti-civil rights agenda to ban firearms and remove the right of self-defense. Sadly, the people against guns and the right to protect one’s life do not even begin to realize what the consequences are of their proposals, and, worse, they believe they are part of a noble cause. “The way to Hell is paved with ‘good’ intentions.”
