For years Kim Cattrall has been pretty open about how having children wasn’t a path she wanted to go down but the actress says she’s got a bit of a beef with being labelled “childless”.
“It’s the ‘less’ that is offensive, isn’t it?” Kim asked while speaking with BBC Radio Four’s Women’s Hour Takeover. “Child-less. It sounds like you’re less, because you haven’t had a child.”
The former Sex and The City star, who has been thrice married, was frank about the judgement women without kids face.
“I’m so glad that I’m not in a political job, because I would be judged even more harshly. It would be, if I had children, could I do the job efficiently? And if I didn’t have children, I was a selfish b___h.”
And while she may not have given birth Kim says that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have any sense of what it’s like to be a parent.
“I am not a biological parent, but I am a parent,” she told BBC 4 Woman’s Hour. “I have young actors and actresses that I mentor, I have nieces and nephews that I am very close to.”
“I think the thing that I find questionable about being childless or childfree — (is) are you really? I mean, there is a way to become a mother in this day and age that doesn’t include your name on the child’s birth certificate. You can express that maternal side of you, very clearly, very strongly…It feels very satisfying.”
We say bravo Kim! It’s 2015 and having kids is a choice. You don’t have to be a mother or even be maternal to be considered a whole woman.
Kim isn’t the only star who hasn’t had a child. There are plenty of Hollywood A-listers who seem to be doing just fine without any offspring.
