Shaun of the Dead's Simon Pegg killed at the after-party for the romantic comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run, which premiered at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in Manhattan late last week, joking to a reporter that his costar, Thandie Newton, was difficult to work with and an angry person. Newton, who wasn't doing interviews, jumped up to the mic only to whisper "very attractive" and "not an alcoholic."

During a Q&A, Pegg, who played a chunky guy, was asked "What kind of shape are you in?" He teased, "I'm ripped! I'm like a coiled spring here." Further on that note, Pegg let on that he always does his own stunts, though it's unclear how much a challenge that would be in a rom-com. "You get used to it, you toughen up," he said. "I'm a motherfucking weapon!"

Pegg revealed to Radar that he and his wife plan to move to New York within the next year. Clearly he has an audience here.
