Los Angeles, Dec 4 (IANS) Actor Christopher Walken is so scared of flying that he chose to skip the London premiere of his latest film "Seven Psychopaths".

The 69-year-old was supposed to join the other cast members for the screening, but he had to cancel his plan due to his nervousness vis-a-vis flying, reports

"I don't like flying at the best of times. And as I get older, I like it less and less," Walken told The Observer Magazine.

He also admits that he avoids driving and is often plagued by irrational fears during trips abroad.

Walken said: "I don't much like driving either. I prefer to be driven. And, when I'm in London, I don't even like walking on the street... When we're over there, I always say to my wife, 'Stay in the hotel. Don't go out there. It's too dangerous.'"
