The Transformers star was among a number of famous faces taking part in the charity theatre project, which gives a group of actors, writers and directors 24 hours to come up with a script and prepare it for the stage.

Fox made her New York stage debut as she appeared in a short play called The Maid opposite Paul Bettany, Sarah Silverman and Tracy Morgan, and she told reporters at the event she would never consider signing up for a proper Broadway production.

She says, "I don't have the stomach for (the stage). It takes a very brave, courageous person, and I'm too neurotic. I wouldn't survive an entire run of a play.. It's frightening... Everyone is so completely terrified (in The 24 Hour Plays), even the people who have done it several times. But I was really impressed with how very relaxed Sarah was, and obviously I don't think Tracy's ever been nervous in his life."

Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Urban Arts Partnership, an organisation which supports arts education in under-privileged schools.
