EXCLUSIVE: Gerard Butler and 50 Cent talk Den Of Thieves, P.S. I Love You and who is the best shot

'There was a perfect hole in his head, and I have it framed on my wall.'

It isn't every day you get invited to Manhattan to chat to Gerard Butler and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson about their new action thriller, but that is exactly what happened a few weeks ago.

In Den Of Thieves, Butler and Jackson play two men on opposite sides of the law, but in the interview, they couldn't have got along any better.

Butler plays an agent attempting to bring down a gang of highly trained bank robbers (of which Jackson is a member), and he'll do it by any means necessary.

There are some incredible shoot-out scenes in the movie, which along with the bank robbery angle and the Los Angeles setting, automatically brings Heat to mind.

Knowing that they had such major action scenes coming up, they were all sent to boot camp to get proper training, but we had to know, which one of them was the better shot?

Also, since we travelled all the way to New York to chat to them, we had to talk to Butler about his days shooting P.S. I Love You in Ireland, which is closing in fast on its 10 year anniversary.

Additionally, we chatted to Jackson about what it was like working with Oscar-nominated Irish director Jim Sheridan (In The Name Of The Father) on his semi-biopic tale Get Rich Or Die Tryin'.

To say that his answer isn't pretty is a bit of an understatement.
