Simon PeggIt pays to grow up geeky and cheeky. British actor Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Run Fatboy Run, Paul) is now an international comedy star who makes serious money. To promote his autobiography Nerd Do Well (Penguin, $27.50), Pegg told The Price of Fame what he learned about saving as a lad ("don't spend it all"), what it was like to have little means and a big Star Wars obsession, and how he managed a budget working as a toy-tester by day and standup comic at night. Then he spills the beans on why he'll never be able to shop at the Salvation Army. Thrift stores beware.

This interviewer has no clue that Simon Pegg is making him look like a complete idiot! He is not picking up on any of the jokes that Pegg is throwing into his responses...

Why are there no more mortgage fraud articles on AOL's Daily Finance Articles? I miss Abigail Fields.
