Daniel Craig London, Aug 16 (IANS) Actress Olivia Wilde says she feels proud that Daniel Craig, the “James Bond” himself was her instructor and taught her how to shoot.

“I was really excited about being the woman in the shadows in this movie, the kind of Clint Eastwood character. I never wanted to be a typical girl in a Western,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

“Daniel was actually the one who taught me how to fire a gun, which is really cool because I’ll always be able to tell people, ‘James Bond taught me how to shoot a gun’,” she added.

Wilde, who portrays mysterious Ella Swenson in “Cowboys and Aliens” says despite number a stunts she felt safe when Craig was around.

“That was supposed to be done by my stunt double and we started out with a mechanical horse, but it was way too slow for our movie and so I ended up getting on a real horse. It was our stunt co-ordinator who convinced director Jon Favreau to let me do it. He said I could pull it off, which made me very proud and I felt safe because Daniel was riding next to me,” she said.
