Simon Pegg has said he lost an iPod and a camera in a New York hotel burglary, but his habit of safeguarding his wedding ring apparently kept it from being stolen.

The Spaced actor testified on Wednesday for the second time against a man accused of stealing from a hotel suite being used as an actors' lounge during filming for the comedy How To Lose Friends And Alienate People.

Simon said he routinely hides his wedding ring while changing into costume.

His co-star Kirsten Dunst testified on Tuesday that her handbag was stolen.

Defendant James Jimenez was convicted last autumn of trespassing, but jurors deadlocked on a burglary charge. He is being retried on that count.

Jimenez testified on Wednesday that he just accompanied another man he thought was allowed to be there.
