She knows how to shoot but co-star Michael is way off target

To prepare for her role as tough cookie Jill Marin in the new political thriller The Sentinal with Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria went along to a shooting range to get to grips with a few guns.

There she showed the guys exactly what she’s made of.

‘All my shots were bull’s eyes,’ she says. ‘They kept saying, “You’re embarrassing us”. Michael’s weren’t even close. He would’ve killed so many civilians and bystanders if it was real.’

Eva, 31, is a crack shot because she learnt how to hunt at her family’s ranch in Corpus Christie, Texas.

In an interview with You she says: ‘I grew up hunting deer and turkey. I can skin a pig and pluck a quail. You name it, I’ve done it. My dad would take us on three-day hikes to show us how to live off the land.’
