Top 10 Celebrities Who Never Want
7. Jay and Mavis Leno.
The former late-night talk host and
his wife of over 30 years have been
honest about not having kids.”I had
made up my mind when I was little
that I would never get married or
have children, so I had no agenda,”
Mavis told the L.A. Times magazine
in 2009 (though she did ease up on
her marriage stance: she and Jay
wed in 1980.)
1. 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
6. Portia de Rossi and Ellen
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 donâ€™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 didnâ€™t feel
that my response was â€˜yesâ€™ to the
latter. You have to really want to
have kids, and neither of us did.
So itâ€™s just going to be me and
Ellen and no babies â€” but weâ€™re the
best of friends and married life is
blissful, it really is. Iâ€™ve never
been happier than I am right now.â€
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
responsibilityâ€”I wouldn’t want to
screw them up!”
5. Rachael Ray.
In 2009, the food mogul and talk
show host talked to ABC’s
“Nightline” about her decision not
ot have kids. â€œI think that Iâ€™m 40
years old, and I have an enormous
amount of hours that have to be
dedicated to work,â€ she said. â€œFor
me personally, I would need more
time to feel like Iâ€™d be a good mom
to my own child.
3. George Clooney.
We’re taking this one with a grain
of salt, because the the world’s
most eligible bachelor said he’d
never get married again, and he’s
now engaged to London-based
attourney Amal Alamuddin. In 2011
however, he told Austrailia’s Daily
Telegraph: “I’ve always known
fatherhood wasn’t for me. Raising
kids is a huge commitment and has
to be your top priority. For me,
that priority is my work. That’s
why I’ll never get married again.”
4. Renee Zellweger.
â€œMotherhood has never been an
ambition. I donâ€™t think like that,”
the Oscar nominee told David
Letterman in 2011.
8. 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
9. 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 Claire in 2012. “My sister
was always very motherly,
babysitting and stuff.
2. Cameron Diaz.
The 41-year-old has been pretty
vocal about her decision to not
have children, but she went into
detail in a new Esquire magazine
interview. “Itâ€™s so much more work
to have children,” the actress
said. “To have lives besides your
own that you are responsible for â€”
I didnâ€™t take that on.
10. Kim Cattrall.
The “Sex and the City” star has
admitted thatâ€”much like her
signature character Samantha Jones
â€”she’s not suited for motherhood.
“When I answered those questions
regarding having children,
