Morgan Freeman would be happy to die acting

Morgan Freeman would be happy to die while acting.

The 78-year-old actor realises he's approaching the end of his life but has no plans to retire from making movies as he thinks passing away on the job just like comedian Dick Shaw - who had a heart attack on stage in 1987 - would be the perfect way to go.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph newspaper, he said: "He (Dick) dropped dead and he got a laugh! You couldn't dream of a better way to go. I'm not worried about anything."

Although he has no intention of retiring, Freeman is limiting the work he takes on and he has no intentions to swap the big screen for the stage or TV because he doesn't enjoy that type of work.

The star - who can currently be seen in 'Ruth & Alex' - said: "I will never set foot on anybody's live stage again. Two months into performances we would go on stage, look at each other and go, 'What the f**k are we doing here?' "

As for taking on a television role, he added: "It's a job, 9 to 5, five days a week."
