Simon Pegg - Simon Pegg Doesn't Like 3d

Simon Pegg is not a fan of 3D.

The 'Shaun of the Dead' star doesn't like to see movies with computer imagery as he feels like it is an ''intrusion''.

He said: ''I'm not a fan of 3D, it generally feels like an intrusion.''

However, Simon has quite eclectic taste in films and enjoys everything from comedy to zombie classics.

He said: ''The last thing I saw was '21 Jump Street' which was very funny. And I was delighted to see 'The Artist' do so well.

''My all time favourite films include George A Romero's zombie classics which have been a huge influence and 'Young Frankenstein' which I first watched on 16mm film.

''I had dinner with Mel Brooks recently and he said he enjoyed 'Shaun of the Dead' which was a delight.''

Simon is also secretly a fan of 'The Hunger Games'.

He explained to Esquire magazine: ''I'll confess to currently reading 'The Hunger Games' to see what the fuss is about. I've enjoyed it, actually. I think people assume it's going to be like 'Twilight' which is like reading the diary of a teenage girl - but it's pretty compelling.''
