Cameron Diaz: I Could be the 'Next Octomom'
In the July issue of Cosmopolitan UK, Cameron Diaz elaborates upon her stance on motherhood. Reiterating that she would “never say never,” the 36-year-old actress muses that she could “end up adopting half a dozen kids” and wind up “the next octomom,” or she could just as easily allow her nieces and nephews to take care of her in her old age. “Who fricking knows?” she asks.
“I don’t worry about what other people want for me. I just have to focus on what I want for myself.”
Constantly being posed the question of whether or not she’ll have a baby isn’t something that Cameron finds depressing, however. She notes that “in our society, [motherhood] is what you’re supposed to do.” The tides may be turning; Cameron goes on to note that she currently has more girlfriends without children than she has girlfriends who are mothers. “I think women are afraid to say they don’t want children because they’re going to get shunned,” she opines, adding,
“And honestly? We don’t need any more kids. We have plenty of people on this planet.”
