Angelina Jolie has revealed that she and Brad Pitt keep guns just like the ones she used in the Tomb Raider movies to protect their family.

Angie told Britain’s Mail on Sunday that after she starred in the action blockbuster, she liked the feel of the semi-automatic pistols so much that she decided to get a few of her own.

"I bought original, real guns of the type we used in Tomb Raider for security," she told the paper.

"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. I could handle myself."

The star, 32, isn’t just up for a full-blown shoot-out, either. The UN Goodwill Ambassador says she’s just as comfortable with a little hand-to-hand combat.

"I tend to want to throw an elbow. I don’t know why. I’ve learned all the punches, head butts and kicks – yet getting someone with my elbow is my first instinct."
