“Kelly Brook got a nice fright during the production of the horror film ‘Piranha 3D,'” the New York Daily News reports, auguring in for ample alliteration. “But it had to do with the fuzz, not fanged fish. Brook tells us that during a break in filming, she and co-star Jessica Szohr decided to drive from the film’s set in Lake Havasu, Ariz., to Las Vegas for a little R&R, but ended up lost late at night at the Hoover Dam. ‘The next thing I know, there are three police cars following us,’ says the British Brook. ‘In England, the natural reaction is to get out of the car and ask for directions, which is what I did,’ she explains.” Sure.

Happy they hadn’t shot a B-movie actress. Good trigger control guys! If you know what I mean.
