Britney Spears almost sneaked in a second secret wedding between her 55-hour Las Vegas nuptials and her engagement to KEVIN FEDERLINE - to wacky funnyman Pauly Shore.

Shore tried to persuade Spears to marry him for the hilarious finale of his comeback film PAULY SHORE IS DEAD, but the pop superstar axed the scene when she realised movie fans would be laughing at her, not with her.

Shore reveals, "I'm friends with her manager LARRY RUDOLPH and she got married, so I thought it would be funny if at the end of the movie, when I got out of jail, I actually marry her. I thought that would be cool.

"I talked to her on the phone, I sold her on the idea, she was down to do it; she said we'll shoot it in three weeks and during those three weeks she changed her mind 50 times and then she said she didn't want to do it but we still got her to be in the movie."

The upcoming movie also features cameos from Tommy Lee, Whoopi Goldberg, PARIS and NICKY HILTON sisters, Fred Durst and former Hollywood Madam HEIDI FLEISS.
