Dutch beauty Famke Janssen doesn't feel the need to have children, because she shares unconditional love with her pet dog.

The X-Men actress is obsessed with her Boston terrier named LICORICE, who she allows to share her bed and credits for teaching her to be less selfish.

Janssen, 39, says, "I'm consumed by my dog and dress him in everything from PRADA to BURBERRY.

"He even sleeps in my bed. Some might say I have an unhealthy relationship with him but he's taught me so much.

"It's the same thing people say when they have kids. When you love somebody more than yourself it's an amazing feeling."
