Cameron Diaz doesn’t want children.
Some women may have a problem with this decision. I do not. Miss Diaz has made the conscious decision to not bear any children because she doesn’t have the time to focus on raising them the way she would deem proper while juggling her movie career and celebrity sponsorship, charity work, and baby-sitting for children of her famous friends like Drew Barrymore.
Let’s face it: Some people shouldn’t be breeding. You see them just like I do. You hear about them on the news. You want to throw these parents out of a third story window so they can feel the pain and probably death endured by their six-month old daughter who just had the same experience thanks to her parents. I’m not saying that Miss Diaz would throw a child out of a third story window, but I’m being snarky in order to make my point.
When was the last time you saw a movie star walking down a red carpet with a stroller in one hand while waving to throngs of fans with the other hand?
Yeah, me neither.
Raising a child isn’t easy.
“It’s so much more work to have children,” the actress said. “To have lives besides your own that you are responsible for — I didn’t take that on.”
Raising a child to become a thug is super-easy; just let him do whatever the hell he wants. Raising a child to become a responsible grown-up with good morals, and the sense of purpose is super-hard and a life long commitment. It is, however, worth the sleepless nights, raging arguments, hugs, tears, smiles and “I love you’s” in return.
If they have siblings, they goof around the house together, fight, start pulling hair, throwing pillows–or vases–at one another. They can either be picky eaters or eat like linebackers. Celebrities don’t have time for that crap; they have to get their hair and makeup done for a photo shoot.
“It’s so much more work to have children,” the actress said. “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.”
When you’re a celebrity, who has time for a kid who throws a tantrum in the middle of Target? Do celebrities go to Target? Maybe their security detail handles it while the celebrity runs behind a potted plant. The last thing they want is to be noticed except when they’re starring in a movie or promoting a product–that’s when they want you to provide them your undivided attention. Adding a child into the mix of celebrity life can either be something the celebrity ends up adoring or abhorring; all depending on how you handle raising a child in a bright celebrity spotlight.
Maybe that’s why there are so many celebrity divorces; aside from the fact of infidelity and absolutely no comprehension as to why they got married in the first place.
In my opinion, Miss Diaz made the right choice for her lifestyle. I mean, how is she going to explain her new movie, “Sex Tape,” to her child when he or she grows up?
“This isn’t a home movie, honey. Also, don’t try this at home…want some popcorn?”
