Child Free Celebrities

Cameron Diaz may love her role as a doting aunt, but she doesn’t feel the same about motherhood. “Having children changes your life drastically, and I really love my life,” she has said. “Children aren’t the only things that bring you gratification and happiness, and it’s easier to give life than to give love, so I don’t know. That kind of change would have to be either very well thought out, or a total mistake — a real oops!”

Openly gay actor Rupert Everett won’t be signing adoption papers anytime soon — he told Britain’s Daily Express, “Oh God, I could never do that to a child. Can you imagine what it would be like, having your two dads coming to school speech days? And hearing those awful queeny rows while you are trying to get to sleep?”

Helen Mirren and director Taylor Hackford have been together since 1986, but Mirren is firmly against having children because, she revealed to Times Online, she was traumatized by an educational childbirth film when she was a teenager. “I swear it traumatized me to this day,” she said. “I haven’t had children, and now I can’t look at anything to do with childbirth. It absolutely disgusts me.”

Don’t hold your breath for Margaret Cho‘s baby bump. Before the comic married artist Al Ridenour in 2003, she said, “I do not want children. When I see children, I feel nothing. I have no maternal instinct. I am barren. I ovulate sand … I look at children and feel no pull toward them, no desire whatsoever. Actually, my fiancé and I have seen some very interesting personal ads of 50-year-olds that like to wear diapers. So we’re thinking of adopting one of these guys. A baby by choice.”

“I don’t regret not having children,” actress Jacqueline Bisset, who’s godmother to Angelina Jolie, tells the Daily Mail. “I am very much at peace with that. Perhaps I do have that occasional twinge, but you can’t do everything.”

Funny girl Janeane Garofalo doesn’t plan on becoming a parent, though she has said that she thought she wanted to at one point. “I thought that I did,” she said. “Now I realize that I don’t. People think that you are a nasty, selfish person if you don’t want to have children.”
