Dame Helen Mirren is perfectly happy with not having any biological children.
The 67-year-old British actress has been married to American film director Taylor Hackford for over 16 years.
Although Taylor has two children from a previous relationship, Helen didn’t give birth to any tykes.
Speaking to British Vogue the star revealed that she has “no maternal instinct.”
“It was not my destiny. I kept thinking it would be, waiting for it to happen, but I never did, and I didn’t care what people thought,” Helen said.
She received criticism from some individuals for her decision, but Helen is confident in herself.
The Academy Award-winning thespian never listened to the naysayers.
“Women never gave me a hard time, anyway, it was only boring old men,” Helen explained.
“And whenever they went 'What? No children? Well, you’d better get on with it, old girl,’ I’d say 'No! F**k off!’ ”
The star may not want any children, but she is very interested in sex.
Helen isn’t shy about viewing explicit things.
“I like sexy stuff,” she confessed to British newspaper The Times previously.
“I like looking at sexy photos. I loved Madonna’s sex book, and I love Gaga. To be honest, I rather like watching pole dancing. Not that I’m gay or anything. I just like the ballet of it.”
Helen was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January for her contribution to the entertainment industry.
