Uh oh: In an exclusive movie still obtained by DailyMail.com, the 35-year-old actress is shown pointing a gun at the battered 31-year-old rapper’s head in a tense scene from their film Midnight In The Switchgrass.

No doubt her character is trying to get information from MGK’s (real name Colson Baker) character who is uncredited on IMDB.

Director Randall Emmett said that Megan was a little tentative filming the scene at first as it was a bit violent and she had to make actual physical contact with MGK using the actual weapon.

The 50-year-old – who was making his directorial debut – said in an interview: ‘This was a scene I really enjoyed directing. Machine Gun Kelly as a director, you give him an inch and he’ll give you a mile, you know.

‘Originally when I was directing the scene the pacing was a little slow, and I said to Megan a couple of times, “I want you to tap the gun on his head and then put it in his mouth, jam it in his mouth.” 

As Megan expressed hesitation to be that aggressive, it was MGK who encouraged her to really get into the scene. 

Emmett explained: ‘And she had said to Machine Gun Kelly, “I don’t want to hurt him… is it gonna hurt?” And he said, “Hit me with the gun!” He was like, “I don’t care you know, just be aggressive, don’t worry about it!” I said “jam it in his mouth to get him to shut up!.”‘

Emmett explained: ‘And Colson (Baker) here, Machine Gun Kelly, he really brought this character to life. I was so set on him being in this movie, and I fought to get him into this film. 

‘And when he originally passed, I called his friend and I told him to call Machine Gun Kelly and I got a cell phone number, I did whatever it took to get them into the film. And he says, “You were one persistent dude.” So I’m really thankful that he brought that role of life. ‘
