Rachel Brosnahan Gets Candid About Shooting a Gun in New Movie ‘I’m Your Woman’
Rachel Brosnahan is dishing on her new movie I’m Your Woman.
In the new thriller, the 30-year-old Emmy-winning actress plays a mob mom on the run, and her character has to shoot guns. While promoting the movie, Rachel opened up about being uncomfortable with shooting a gun.
“I love that it felt real on the page in a way that I hadn’t seen before in a genre like this one, that involves quite a lot of action. I feel like when it comes to men and women in some of these films sometimes, it feels like someone gets a gun put in their hand, and the power surges through their veins and suddenly they know how to use it,” she explained.
“I myself am not very comfortable with guns, I had to learn to shoot one once before for a film, and once went on an inexplicable date with someone who took me to a shooting range. It’s a whole story for another time…a one date thing,” she laughed.
“I’m not super comfortable with guns, and I think most people aren’t. If you didn’t grow up around guns, or have them around you in your house or whatever, it’s not something a lot of people are comfortable with,” she continued.
“I appreciate so much the opportunity her be bad at it. To watch her be nervous. There was not a lot of acting in this moment – but to shoot the gun for the first time, it scared her. That we’re allowed to use that on screen felt really different. I don’t think I’d really seen that in a genre like this.”
I’m Your Woman is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video now.
