The 45-year-old actor said: `I`m more afraid of how I`ll go. Fire and tight spaces don`t appeal... A shark would be interesting.`

Brad Pitt thinks being eaten by a shark would be "interesting".

'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' star insists he isn't scared of getting older, but often wonders how his life will finally end.

The 45-year-old actor said: "I'm more afraid of how I'll go. Fire and tight spaces don't appeal... A shark would be interesting." 

'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' is a big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1921 short story.

In the movie, Brad plays the title character - a man who is born with all the physical attributes of an old man, and slowly grows back into a young child.

Brad recently revealed he can't wait to grow old because he thinks it will make him more intelligent.

He said: "I like the wisdom that comes with age. I wouldn't trade it for youth any day."

'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' - which also stars Cate Blanchett - received 11 nominations at this year's BAFTA Awards, with Brad named in the Best Leading Actor category.
