'Burn Notice' actress conflicted about violence

Gun-toting vixen Fiona takes great pleasure in firing off guns and explosions in the TV series "Burn Notice."

But the woman who plays her isn't comfortable with that. Actress Gabrielle Anwar says she's "adverse to any kind of weaponry and violence."

The USA Network show, airing Thursdays at 9 p.m. EDT, describes Fiona as the "trigger-happy ex-girlfriend" of Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan), a spy who turns to friends and family after he's discredited or "burned."

Anwar has a 10-year-old son and says she worries about glamorizing violence. She says it "bugs" her on a "personal level" when her son comes and sees her dolled up in heels and makeup shooting people.

She admits she's in denial over the conflict.
