Simon Pegg reflects on why his friendship with Nick Frost isn’t a bromance.
We have seen Simon Pegg’s and Nick Frost’s on screen friendships through a zombie apocalypse in “Shaun of the Dead,” to small village police officers fighting a murdering cult bent on maintaining the popularity of their town in “Hot Fuzz”, and most recently attempting to survive “The World’s End.” They also have a deep and loving friendship off screen. Simon Pegg, however, doesn’t think that they need the word “bromance” to define the way they feel about each other. In fact, he notes the slang word adds to the cultural norming that tells men that it is odd for them to have close friends because there is only a thin line separating close male friendships and homosexuality.
