Celebrities You Don't Want To Meet In Real Life
15 Celebrities Who Never Want Kids
Cameron Diaz. The 41-year-old has been pretty vocal about her decision to not have children, but she went into detail in a newEsquiremagazine interview. "It’s so much more work to have children," the actress said. "To have lives besides your own that you are responsible for — I didn’t take that on. That did make things easier for me. A baby — that’s all day, every day for 18 years. Not having a baby might really make things easier, but that doesn’t make it an easy decision."
"I like protecting people, but I was never drawn to being a mother. I have it much easier than any of them. That’s just what it is. Doesn’t mean life isn’t sometimes hard. I’m just what I am. I work on what I am. Right now, I think, things are good for me. I’ve done a lot. And I don’t care anymore."
Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt.Kids aren't in the cards for this "Mad Men" star and his longtime actor/producer girlfriend. "I'd be a terrible father!" Hamm toldUs Weekly in 2012. "I see my friends who have children and I'm like, 'Dude, how are you even upright, much less here at work at 6 a.m.?'"
Westfedlt agrees, having told theNew York Times"I've thought about this a lot lately. I never thought I'd be this age and not have kids, but my life has also gone in a million ways I never anticipated. I kept feeling like I'd wake up with absolute clarity, and I haven't. And we have a pretty great life together. The chance that we'll regret it doesn't seem like a compelling enough reason to do it. I may wake up tomorrow with that lighting bolt, and I'll have to scramble to make it happen."
Zooey Deschanel.Despite her childlike demeanor, the "New Girl" star, 34, isn't planning on becoming a mom. "[Having kids has] never been my focus," she told Marie Clairein 2012. "My sister was always very motherly, babysitting and stuff. I like kids, and I like being around kids--but it was never an ambition, something, like, I need ... I like working. That's what I like doing. I like to work."
Eva Mendes. Mendes revealed her no-kids plan in response to tabloid rumors that she was pregnant. "I don't wanna have kids," she's said. "I love the little suckers; they're so cute but I love sleep so much and I worry about everything." As for those rumors, then? "I'm off season right now. I'm having the pasta, I'm having the dessert," the actress quipped.
Renee Zellweger. “Motherhood has never been an ambition. I don’t think like that," the Oscar nominee toldDavid Lettermanin 2011.
Ricky Gervais. The actor and comedian told Britan's Red magazine that he and his longtime partner Jane Fallon always knew they'd opt out of parenthood. "We never wanted to be parents, with all that entails: the loss of freedom, total dependency. I didn’t have a work ethic for such a long time. Imagine if I had a child like me? I didn’t start earning until I was 36.” he said. “I’m the sort of person who has to check three times that I’ve shut the door, so I’d probably stare at a kid all day to check it was breathing
Helen Mirren.Dame Mirren was turned off to the idea of kids thanks to a film she was shown in school. "They sat us all down, boys and girls, all about 13, 14 years old in this horrible school hall. And then this tweed-skirted dykey sort of woman, short cropped hair, comes on and says, 'I'm Dr Joyce' or whatever, 'and what you're about to see is one of the greatest miracles. I've seen it many times you know because I'm a doctor and giving birth is one of the most beautiful things,'" Helen told theDaily Mailin 2007. "I swear it traumatized me to this day. I can't look at anything to do with childbirth. It absolutely disgusts me." Well, there you have it.
Rachael Ray. In 2009, the food mogul and talk show host talked to ABC's "Nightline" about her decision not ot have kids. “I think that I’m 40 years old, and I have an enormous amount of hours that have to be dedicated to work,” . “For me personally, I would need more time to feel like I’d be a good mom to my own child. I feel like a borderline good mom to my dog. So I can’t imagine if it was a human baby….I feel like it would be unfair, not only to the child but to the people I work with.”
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres. In 2013, de Rossi told Us Weekly "There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, 'Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart?' I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the latter. You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen and no babies — but we’re the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I’ve never been happier than I am right now.”
Ellen echoed that sentiment, telling People "We'd probably be great parents. But it's a human being and unless you think you have excellent skills and have a drive or yearning in you to do that, the amount of work that that is and responsibility—I wouldn't want to screw them up!"
Oprah Winfrey.Winfrey has been vocal about her decision to not become a mother, telling Extra: "I never had children, never even thought I would have children. Now I have 152 daughters; expecting 75 more next year. That is some type of gestation period." Winfrey was referring to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, which she founded in 2007.
