Having kids and raising them is the most fulfilling thing for some but not all. Becoming a parent is a choice and not an obligation. Some people love to have kids and some don’t. People who choose to not have kids normally want to utilize that time for their partners, family and themselves. Certain Hollywood celebrities prefer to not have kids and rather be mentors to young people who actually need some advice and help. They are more than happy to share their experiences with people who need their help. Here are a few:
Jennifer Aniston: Jennifer Aniston never hid the fact that she is not willing to fit in the society’s mold for women. She has been clear that she has mothered many things but Kids isn’t on her list.
Jennifer Lawrence: This actress revealed that as a child she was obsessed with the idea of motherhood and couldn’t wait to be one. But with age, it faded.
Eva Mendes: Eva Mendes didn’t want to be a mother because it didn’t fit her. But things changed when she met Ryan Gosling and it made sense to have his kids.
