Octavia Spencer - Octavia Spencer 'fine' without kids
Octavia Spencer is 'fine' with her decision to focus on her career instead of starting a family.
Octavia Spencer has no regrets about not having children.
The 'Fruitvale Station' star believes it is unlikely she will ever have a baby but insists she is ''fine'' with her decision to focus on her career instead of starting a family.
Speaking at a roundtable discussion for The Hollywood Reporter, the 43-year-old actress said: ''I should be married and have 19 kids. And now I'm thinking my eggs are dying on the shelf. They're going to go past their expiration date. But it's what I chose, so I'm fine with that decision.''
Julia Roberts also participated in the interview, along with Amy Adams, Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Thompson and Oprah Winfrey, and feels she ''earned'' a break from Hollywood to start her family, including twins, Hazel and Finn, eight, and Henry, six, with husband Danny Moder after almost two decades of acting.
The 'August: Osage County' star said: ''I had been working for 18 years when I had Hazel and Finn almost nine years ago. So I felt like I earned that time in my house and in my kitchen and in bed all day with these two little people. I felt that was my present to myself.''
She added: ''I worked hard, and I was very devoted to that, and then I earned this jewel box of a life that I felt completely entitled to. It still is really important, but it has made me take more things into consideration.''
