Brad Pitt, who became "fascinated" by weapons since playing a hitman in his recent movie 'Killing Them Softly,' has started a fight with his fiance Angelina Jolie over his new passion for guns.

In the new movie, the 48-year-old actor is seen wreaking ­havoc with a variety of firearms. And Pitt is now so keen on guns that he has become a regular at a private Los Angeles firing range, where he uses a Mossberg 500 “Cruiser” shotgun ­exactly like the one he has in the film, the Daily Star reported.

The Mossberg is so highly regarded as a tactical ­weapon that the M590 ­model is used by the US Marines’ Fleet Anti-terrorism ­Security Team in combat.  A source close to Pitt said: “He’s really hooked.”

But Jolie is said to be “furious and frightened” over his newfound love of weapons.  “She refuses to let him keep them in any of their homes,” a friend
said.  “And she has banned Brad from setting up a practice range in the grounds of their Hollywood Hills ­mansion,” the friend said.
