American TV star Willie Aames "never once felt frightened" when a gun-wielding mugger robbed his family in Los Angeles earlier this month (Jan08). The 47-year-old actor was out in Hollywood with his wife, Maylo Upton, and 27-year-old son Christopher when a man dressed in a black jacket and blue jeans threatened them with a firearm and demanded cash. The stunned trio handed over their wallets and cash totalling just $15 (GBP7.50). But Eight Is Enough star Aames insists he wasn't scared in the slightest. Aames says, "He yelled, 'Which one of you wants to die?' I remained calm, moved closer, and he started backing off. "I never once felt frightened."
