Movie veteran James Garner almost missed out on his Lifetime Achievement honour at Saturday's (05FEB05) SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS - because he suffers from agoraphobia.

The MAVERICK star had to discuss the honour with his wife before agreeing to attend the prizegiving ceremony.

He says, "I said, 'I just don't know if I can do that.' I said, 'I'll call you back in 15 minutes.' And I talked to my wife and she said, 'You've gotta do it.'"
