Award-winning actress THANDIE NEWTON agreed to put on weight for her role in RUN, FAT BOY, RUN, because she mistakenly thought her British co-star SIMON PEGG had to do the same.However the CRASH star realised too late that SHAUN OF THE DEAD actor Pegg was in fact going to pad himself up with a special costume.Newton says, "The producers asked me to put on weight, and, because I thought Simon was having to put on masses, I agreed."But when I turned up, Simon hadn't put on any weight at all. He just wore a fat suit."His rippling six-pack was intact beneath it."
