London: 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.
