Selma Blair

Selma Blair's sister taught her how to use a gun.

The 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army' actress has no problem handling firearms in her movies because she became familiar with guns from a young age.

She said: "I'm from Michigan so I'm a tough girl. But my sister is even tougher. She is a cop and was on the SWAT team for 11 years. She taught me everything I know. I'm really good with a gun - my sister always taught me a lot of gun safety and everything because they were around the house."

Selma - who plays Liz Sherman in the superhero sequel opposite Ron Perlman as the demon hero - loved the romantic scenes which saw her locking lips with Ron's make-up covered face.

She said: "The first time I had to do a scene like that with Ron I did not know if I could touch him, if it would ruin the make-up. I had never worked with a prosthetic love interest before.

"But it felt completely natural and normal and I forgot that I was talking to a man in make-up. I actually really enjoyed it."
