Are kids in the cards for Cameron Diaz? Unlikely based on the 41-year-old’s recent talk with Esquire. Looking as sexy as we hope to be when we’re in our 40s, the Sex Tape star explains why she never had kids.
“It’s so much more work to have children,” she says. “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.”
As fans of the Cam, we appreciate her candidness (you can thank us later for not making a horrible Cam-based pun there). The August cover girl goes on to explain that while she likes “protecting people” she was “never drawn to being a mother.”
“I have it much easier than any of them. That’s just what it is,” she added of her peers juggling both careers and families (Drew Barrymore comes to mind). “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.”
More power to you, girlfriend!
