'The Other Woman' star Cameron Diaz has opened up about her thoughts on motherhood, stating that if she had ever wanted children, she would have had them.

The actress explained that she has plenty of pals who have also chosen not to start a family as well as those who have, before adding that she’s totally “OK” with her choices.

Cameron made her comments during an interview with The Telegraph, stating: “I’ve never said never to anything in life. If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them.

“But I’m certain that if at any point I wanted a child, that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption, or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child.”

“It’s not like I’m the spinster who didn’t have a child,” she continued. “I just didn’t do that in life, and I’m OK with that.

“I know the choices I made. I know why I made them. I’m very much a person who lives in the moment. When you come from where I do, there are so many ways my life could have gone.”

Cameron, who has a hugely successful acting career, added that she doesn’t consider herself “childless”, despite not being a parent.

“I can’t see the future, but one thing I do know is that I’m not childless,” she told the paper. “I have a ton of children in my life. I can have a kid any second, if I want.

“All my friends would be like, 'Sure, come and get them,’” she said.

In a recent interview with Huff Post UK, Cameron spoke about a different set of choices she has to make, revealing that she thinks Hollywood should show childless, successful women enjoying their lives.

"I’ve always felt that way with my characters,” she told us. “I have a tendency to play characters that are strong or if their vulnerabilities are something that is as real as possible.

“Rather than things that have been put on them as an affectation of someone else’s idea of a woman’s vulnerabilities.”

The actress’s latest movie, ‘The Other Woman’, also stars Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, as the three women launch a hilarious revenge plot against a man who has secretly been dating all three of them.
