London: Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman says his greatest fear in life is having a confrontation with someone.

The 73-year-old actor says the thought of being in a fight with someone is his one big fear in life so he avoids any situations where one may occur, a news website reported.

"I fly, I sail, I drive fast, I ride horses. I have no fear of the big things in life, I have no fear of being on my own, but I don`t like the idea of a fight.

My only fear is confrontation. Nothing else scares me. Some people enjoy it, I never have and never will," Freeman said.

Avoiding confrontation has been quite easy for the `Driving Miss Daisy` star as he admits he can easily charm people.

"Charm has been my greatest gift. I learned the power of charm early on in life. As a young black man in 50s America in Mississippi you have to learn something extra special to keep yourself out of trouble," Freeman said.

"Charm beats aggression any day and it`s something you`ll use all your life. Charm is the secret ingredient and it`s more powerful than anything I know. A lot of people could benefit from working on a bit of charm," he added.
