Simon Pegg to announce shock retirement from acting?

Pegg created a stir on Tuesday when rumors have surfaced that his career was over.

Sad news for Pegg fans. Speculation had been rife that the American actor best known for his roles in Star Trek, Hot Fuzz, Mission: Impossible III or Shaun of the Dead, will announce his retirement from acting, at age 54, with immediate effect.

UPDATE 17/04/2024 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

Being an actor isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actor-comedian-author-producer-director just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Tuesday evening, #ThankYouSimon was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouSimon.”
