Hugh Grant dreads turning 50
London, Sep 2, Actor Hugh Grant admits that he is scared of turning 50.
The British actor who turns 50 Sep 9, jokes he would end his life at a euthanasia clinic once he reaches the milestone, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’m dreading it. There is this place in Switzerland called Dignitas. I’m going to go to Dignitas on my 50th birthday – 50 is enough!” he said.
The “Four Weddings and A Funeral” star says that he lost his sense of humour when he started exercising more in a bid to escape crippling panic attacks which often struck him while he worked.
“I get these panic attacks. So I have always tried to do everything I possibly can – herbal remedies, chemical remedies. Running was the only thing that really helped,” he said.
“It calmed me down, so I didn’t have the panic attacks. But at the same time, I found that it lowered my sense of humour. I lost my edge a bit. So in the end, I stopped running.
“It’s not the audiences, I love them. Put me on stage in front of thousand people and I’m very comfortable. It’s cameras I don’t like,” he added.
