Fox News rounds up a list of celebrities who like to hunt—and some of them may surprise you:

  • Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: The model and Transformers star calls herself a "farm girl," and says that growing up, she ate animals she shot herself, including "a few pheasants and a few rabbits."
  • Avril Lavigne: Her love of hunting was part of what attracted her first music manager. "She goes hunting all the time with her brother and dad," he once said. "Here's this sweet little thing ... I loved the toughness."
  • Eva Longoria: The Desperate Housewives star learned to shoot at the tender age of 4, on her family's ranch in Texas, and has hunted deer, turkey, quail, and wild pig.

  • Joe Perry: The Aerosmith guitarist says "hunters are conservationists," and adds, "I don't shoot anything that I don't eat." He's even gone hunting with Ted Nugent.
  • Chris Pratt: The actor says he's "absolutely obsessed" and "passionate" about big game hunting.
  • Shaquille O'Neal: He reportedly hunts goats and wild boars on "Shaqfaris."
  • Kurt Russell: About his hobby, he has said, "I think we can improve the image of hunting in a very positive way along with taking care of a significant problem, and that is hungry people in the United States."
