Celebrities seem to have it all: a glamorous career, spacious homes, fast cars and all the luxury in the world. With all that money to spend, saving up for a child's schooling doesn't seem like a big challenge; however, some celebrities think otherwise.

Even though money is not an issue, there are celebrities who have simply chosen not to have children and to leave the baby-bump to others. Take a look at our list of celebrities that have chosen not to have children and the reasons behind their choices.

10 Portia De Rossi

9 Helen Mirren

8 Oprah Winfrey

7 Kim Cattrall

The Sex and the City-star has always had a reputation of the one who doesn't seem to settle down completely, partly due to her role. Kim Cattrall said, “I asked myself some questions regarding having children and I realized much of the pressure comes from outside sources. That is when I realized I was not ready to take the step for motherhood.” Cattrall has been married three times between 1979 and 2004 and has been dating since. She adds, “I enjoy kids, but not for too long. First, I think they are funny and cute and then I usually get a headache.”

6 Jay Leno

5 Margaret Cho

4 Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd is known to be a humanitarian and says having children was never her priority. “I feel it is unconscionable to have children when there are so many children starving to death in impoverished countries worldwide. I think having children would simply be a selfish act,” she said. Her quotes have raised controversy, but Judd never felt pressured to go against her beliefs. The actress became engaged to racing driver Dario Franchitti in 1999 and got married to him in 2001. After a 12-year marriage, the couple announced to have mutually decided to end their marriage in 2013. Judd is a global ambassador for YouthAIDS, a prevention program which enabled Judd to travel to affected countries like Cambodia, Kenya and Rwanda.

3 Kathy Griffin

2 Cameron Diaz

In an interview with Parade Magazine, actress Cameron Diaz said, “I have an unbelievable life and I have this life because I don’t have children. I don’t think it’s a compromise to have children. It is more of a compromise to not have children, because it is a different choice you have to make.” Although Diaz says it is a choice, some tabloids say the 41-year old actress did not even have the opportunity to have children so far, as her relationships have not come close to settling down. Diaz cohabited with video-producer Carlos de la Torre from 1990 to 1994 and has dated several fellow celebrities since, including Matt Damon, Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto.

1 George Clooney

George Clooney is by far Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor, but is difficult to get a hold of for women. In interviews, Clooney has made it clear several times to not want to have children and that a second marriage is also out of the question. According to him, this was clear from the start. “I always knew fatherhood was not for me. Raising a child is a huge commitment and it has to be your top priority. My work is my priority and that is also why I will never marry again,” he said in an interview with Australia’s Daily Telegraph. From 1989 until 1993, Clooney was married to actress Talia Balsam and since his divorce, he has dated several women. Clooney’s love life is a major topic among female fans, who all fantasize about taking Clooney to the altar.
