Victims of Simon Cowell's harsh words can now get their own back - the music mogul has declared his acting debut is "terrible".

The sharp-tongued American Idol judge recently made his way up to Canada to film a cameo alongside Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards in the comedy SCARY MOVIE 3.

But Cowell admits filming the scene made him "panic", explaining, "You have to memorise something and it just gets stuck. I'm much better at saying the first thing that comes into my mind."

He adds, "I was dreadful. I just can't do it."
