To conceive or not to conceive, that's the question. Indeed, there are moments in pretty much every woman's life when she wonders about what it would be like to become a mother. Parenthood is a beautiful gift, but it's not for everyone. Many foreign celebrities, who strongly disagree with the statement that motherhood is the most important role in a woman's life, could speak about it at great length. The definition of success is different for each person and these ladies feel happy and successful, precisely because they don't have any children. And what makes them think that way?

Marry well, settle down and most importantly, have children as soon as possible! That's precisely the prescribed scenario that society expected our great-grandmothers, grandmothers and maybe even mothers to follow. But having a child is no longer considered the "duty" of every woman, although it remains a sad truth that there are people among us who judge others for choosing not to procreate. Even in the 21st century we live in, women who chose their career over having a child are still frowned upon. They are often said to be selfish, thinking only about themselves. But the truth is that the choice to start a family is up to each of us. Let's have a look together at celebrities who managed to withstand the pressure of society or their relatives and willingly chose a life path without offspring.

Jennifer Aniston (50)

Let's start with who might be the most famous star that was being asked about children by every other journalist ever since the day she turned twenty-five. This well-known actress was often under a lot of pregnancy-related pressure in the past, so she decided to speak about it publicly.

"We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. I don't have to be married or a mother to live a full life. I can be complete with or without a mate, with or without a child,"

she told the Huffinghton Post.

Recently, Jennifer also stated in the media that she had completely given up the idea that she could ever become a mother. Moreover, she admitted that motherhood honestly frightens her and she sees it as a nightmare.

Renée Zellweger (51)

Go with the flow without stressing about the future. That's how the Oscar-winning actress Renéé Zellweger, who can change like a chameleon in front of the camera, lives her live. In the past, she admitted to the London Times that she can easily do without certain things in her life and therefore she can be happy even without children.

"Motherhood has never been an ambition for me. Nowadays, there is a constant pressure to be a certain way, to look a certain way, to have established certain things in your life by a certain phase in your life experience. I've always been kind of open to whatever may be, curious to see what's next,"

said the actress.

Oprah Winfrey (66)

The well-known American presenter and multiple Emmy winner Oprah Winfrey has never longer for a child either. This star of a well-known talk show has mentioned in the media several times already that her life wouldn't any better with a child. And the reason? This might be difficult to believe, but it is fear of communication.

"I don't think I would have been a good mother. Babies can't really explain what they need, and it makes me nervous not to know what's going on. I couldn't talk to them. I like children very much, but I know that being a mother is simply not for me,"

said the star on Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop podcast.

Helen Mirren (74)

This Oscar-winning actress could be considered an example of "missing your boat"; some could even see her as a cautionary tale. This star delayed parenthood in favor of her career until it was too late. Unlike her colleagues, the actress herself isn't trying to conceal the fact that not having a family has never been a completely conscious decision for her.

"I've always focused only on my career,"

the star told the presenter on an American talk show.

In her youth, she apparently couldn't imagine taking care of a child during filming breaks.

"At the time, I couldn't imagine including a child in my life at all. Being a mother was not my destiny. But I never really cared about other people's opinions,"

said the actress. But the important thing is that even without children, Helen knows how to enjoy her life to the fullest and, at her age, she continues to actively pursue her acting career.

Kim Cattrall (63)

Remember Samantha from Sex and the City? Untamed, wild and free-thinking? That's exactly what the actress who portrayed her, Kim Cattrall, is like in real life. Yes, there are such stars in Hollywood who care not just about their careers, but mainly about their freedom. It's true that motherhood brings a lot of limitations and a woman needs to adjust her time to the needs of the child. And that's why Kim decided not to have children. Yes, it's quite a paradox, because this actress values ​​her freedom just as much as her Samantha in the series did.

"When I was five, I dreamed of having a hundred dogs and a hundred children one day. But I realized that due to the pressure of society, which was pouring in on me from all sides, I was not ready to take the step into motherhood,"

said the actress.

And what about you? Are you one of those who condemn women who have chosen not to have a family or do you agree that a woman can be happy without children?
