The actor decided not to join his castmates at a screening of Seven Psychopaths in London, and now reveals he has cut back his travelling due to his increased anxiety on planes.
He tells Britain's The Observer Magazine, ""I don't like flying at the best of times. And as I get older, I like it less and less.""
Walken, 69, admits he also tries to avoid driving and is often plagued by irrational fears during trips abroad.
He adds, ""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.'""
