Celebs share their reasons for not having kids

 Jennifer Aniston

"I don't have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done and…if they're not checked then I've failed some part of my feminism, or my being a woman, or my worth or my value as a woman. I've birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I've mothered many things. And I don't think it's fair to put that pressure on people." - ET online interview

 

Renee Zellweger

"Motherhood has never been an ambition. I don't think like that. I never have expectations like 'when I'm 19 I'm going to do this, and by the time I've hit 25 I'm going to do that'. I just take things as they come, each day at a time." - People

 

Oprah

“If I had kids, my kids would hate me...They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them." - The Hollywood Reporter

 

Cameron Diaz

"We live in a society where everyone has kids, so they want other people to have kids. There is this culture that says celebrities are supposed to be just like us, so people think, 'I have children — why doesn't she?' But I'm not going to do something because it's expected. If a family happens, then it happens. If children come to me, then I would do that, but I'm not someone who feels like she has to do something because it's expected." - Esquire

 

Kylie Minogue
 
 
"I never had the feeling I was made for a conventional marriage with a house in the suburbs." - Boston.com

 

Helen Mirren
 
 
“It was not my destiny, I kept thinking it would be, waiting for it to happen, but it never did, and I didn’t care what people thought … It was only boring old men [who would ask me]. And whenever they went, ‘What? No children? Well, you’d better get on with it, old girl,’ I’d say ‘No! F*** off!’” - The Daily Mail

 

Rashida Jones
 
“I’m happy, but the fact that I'm not married and don't have kids — it's taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don't feel like I'm some sort of loser." - The Guardian

 

Dolly Parton
 
 
"I often think, it just wasn’t meant for me to have kids so everybody’s kids can be mine." - People

 

Kim Cattrall
 
 
"I enjoy kids but not for long periods. I think they’re adorable and funny and sweet, and then I have a headache…Being a biological mother just isn’t part of my experience this time around." - Out In Hollywood

 

 
Ashley Judd
 
 
“The fact is that I have chosen not to have children because I believe the children who are already here are really mine, too. I do not need to go making ‘my own’ babies when there are so many orphaned or abandoned children who need love, attention, time, and care. I have felt this way since I was at least eighteen." - The Daily Caller
