Simon Pegg Doesn’t Like 3D, But He Does Like The Hunger Games

Simon PeggSimon 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."

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

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

"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 favorite 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: "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."
