Hong Kong actress Maggie Cheung refused to have children after watching the horrific September 11 (01) terrorist attacks on America.

The 39-year-old HERO star planned to start a family, but the AL-QAEDA atrocities in New York and Washington DC put her off creating new life in such an "evil world".

She says, "I have always wanted to have babies but I've seen the 911 attacks ... I don't want to bring another person to this evil world. Why are we human beings so selfish?"
