British actor Simon Pegg has laughed off speculation Tom Cruise tried to convert him to Scientology when they filmed MISSION: Impossible III last year (06). The Shaun Of The Dead funnyman admits he found Cruise "a little strange", but conceded it was normal to act a bit quirky after spending decades in Hollywood. Pegg says, "I don't know how you can live the life he's lived and not be a little strange. "But as a person, one-to-one, he was incredibly personable, funny, charming, not particularly short, didn't mention Scientology."
