The stereotype that a family must have time to start before the age of 30 collapses by far from one striking exception. Some of these examples are in BeautyHack's stellar collection!
Charlize Theron, 41
The charming blonde is philosophical about relationships and is convinced that the matter is not in quantity, but in quality. The actress's most famous romance was with Sean Penn, after which she was credited with a relationship with Keanu Reeves, but still Charlize's main hobby is her adopted children (son Jackson and daughter August).
“Not once, even when I was in a relationship, did I take vows of eternal love, because I don't believe in them. I think other people come into our lives for a certain time - and you can't be so greedy, wanting to get them forever. Probably, I will never give up the status of "not married". And this is my personal choice, not life circumstances."
Drew Barrymore, 42
A divorce from her husband Will Kopelman became a serious trauma for Barrymore, but instead of depression and despair, the star chose to love herself and her life without men: now she travels more often, plays sports, participates in new filming and, of course, devotes time to her beloved daughters.
“It may seem silly, but I want to always be happy just by myself. It's okay to be alone and even fun. No need to brush your teeth before bed, shave your legs and share the TV remote control with someone. Sometimes you are your very best friend."
Gwyneth Paltrow, 44
After 12 years of marriage with the musician of the rock band "Coldplay" Chris Martin, the actress did not maintain the already "extinct" relationship. Gwyneth Paltrow preferred a career and motherhood to marriage:
“Life is too short and priceless. One of the most important decisions in my life is to be a mother. Thanks to my daughter and son for the fact that my heart is filled with boundless love every day."
Lady Gaga, 31 years old
According to The Times, one of the brightest singers of our time and the most influential woman in the world has relied on her career in her life. And although with actor Taylor Kinney the star has a hope to build a family, Gaga herself is in no hurry. In February last year, her lover proposed to her, but nothing has been heard about the wedding.
“I deliberately sacrifice my feminine happiness. I was already really in love once, but Matthew (Matthew Williams - ed.) Wanted me to leave my career. And I cannot live without a stage."
Lana Del Rey, 31
The enigmatic pop diva parted ways with Kassidy musician Barry James O'Neill in 2014 after three years of relationship. And although Lana Del Rey admitted that loneliness is no longer her friend (as a teenager, the singer struggled with depression and alcohol addiction), the love story began to weigh on the star.
“Am I sad? Barry is a wonderful person, but when I'm in the recording studio, I stop regretting a lot and realize how happy I am."
January Jones, 39
Recognized by Maxim magazine as one of the most beautiful women in the world and the muse of Donatella Versace, January Jones hides information about all her relationships and alone raises her son Xander, assuring that she did it deliberately.
“In my house, the third one seems superfluous to me. To be honest, I have no idea how I can live with my partner. I knew that I was going to raise the child alone. It was a truly deliberate step, I was mentally prepared for this, and I am glad that it happened."
Britney Spears, 35
Once everyone had high hopes for the relationship between Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but even the marriage to Kevin Federline, with whom the singer has two children, could not last more than three years. The star admits that she is principled in a relationship.
“I hate it when they lie to me, I see it right away, feel it and change my attitude towards such a person once and for all, because you can expect anything from lying people. This is what makes me disappointed, depressed and just lose faith and hope …"
Rachel McAdams, 38
The actress has the fame of a wayward girl: for Rachel, quarrels on the set and in her personal life are common. The star's romances with Ryan Gosling, Michael Sheen and other actors led to a breakup, but Rachel does not want to adapt to anyone and does not focus on her personal life.
“In my opinion, one person's shortcomings may be quite suitable for another person. The “right” flaws are those that you can accept in another person. Without this, relationships between people would be just boring."
Emilia Clarke, 30
The Game of Thrones star is not deprived of attention, but prefers to devote time to work. The longest romance of the actress lasted just over a year - with the actor and creator of the animated series Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane.
“I have practically no personal life. Where does it come from if I've spent the last 5 years in hotels, on airplanes and on film sets? I don’t bother about my loneliness. Everything has its time. One fine moment in my life the right person will definitely appear, and everything will happen by itself."
Naomi Campbell, 46
Despite the fact that at the age of 46, Naomi Campbell is not married and has no children, the supermodel does not abandon her dream of starting a family. Relations with Vladislav Doronin did not grow to such a stage, so now Naomi is waiting for changes and is completely ready for them.
“I think that in relationships with men, I sacrificed a lot in order to be who they wanted me to be, and thus completely lost myself. And recently, thanks to sessions with a psychotherapist, I finally returned to my real self and absolutely happy."
Renee Zellweger, 47
Unlike her character in The Diary of Bridget Jones, Renee Zellweger does not worry about love failures. And although the actress is not deprived of attention - she once met with Jim Carrey and George Clooney, and even was married to country star Kenny Chesney for a couple of months - now she is free and does not have any complexities about this.
“The presence of a husband and children has long been not an indicator of a woman's solvency as a person. I don’t feel lonely, I don’t have time for this.”
Christine Davis, 52
Looking at Christine Davis - Charlotte from "Sex and the City" - it's hard to believe that in life the actress does not dream of a family at all.
“I don’t understand why we have to pair up. This is a kind of custom of the 50s, which has become outdated a long time ago. In modern life, everything is different."
Maria Sharapova, 30 years old
Sportswoman and beauty Maria Sharapova is one of the most enviable brides. But the star is in no hurry to start a serious relationship and admits that she just loves to meet new interesting people.
“In the last 12 months I have had a busy personal life, a lot of dates. No, I don't have a boyfriend, if that's what you're interested in. I just enjoyed meeting different people - different cultures and different professions. They weren't just Americans. In this regard, I have a vast geography."
Svetlana Bondarchuk, 48 years old
Divorce from Fyodor Bondarchuk after 25 years of marriage became a difficult test for Svetlana. But wisdom won, and now Svetlana does not regret anything: she enjoys a free life, evenings with friends and travels.
“We probably should have done it. And I'm glad we got married. It just turned out to be a little strange, ridiculous situation. So isn't youth good with such absurdities?"
