Hollywood veteran Anjelica Huston has no regrets about not having children of her own because her brothers and sisters have plenty of children.

THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS star can enjoy all the fun times with her nieces and nephews, but when they need discipline she is more than happy to let their parents take over.

Huston says, "I'm not sad that I haven't had any children, because there are a lot in my family. My brother's children in their early twenties are great.

"Both my brothers and my sister had two years ago, so there's a whole new batch and I get to be 'auntie' and have a great time with them and it's lovely.

"I can have all the advantages and necessarily be the parent figure, cracking the whip."
