Simon Pegg's Fox shock

Simon Pegg was “surprised” to discover Megan Fox could act.

The British actor – who stars alongside the brunette beauty in ‘How To Lose Friends and Alienate People’ – was stunned by Megan’s performance, as he had previously thought she was just a pretty face.

He said: “Working with Megan was fun. When they first called cut on her first scene, everybody was surprised. There was a palpable sense of, ‘Wow, she can act too!’ ”

Simon also expressed his delight at working with Kirsten Dunst on the new film, adapted from journalist Toby Young’s book of the same name.

He added to BANG Showbiz: “Kirsten is a wonderful actress and the amount of experience she has is extraordinary. She has been acting since she was three years old but she is only 26. She has that mixture of old wisdom and youth.

“When she wasn’t on the set it was a completely different experience.”
