I have a ton of children in my life. I can have a kid any second, if I want. All my friends would be like, 'Sure, come and get them,'" she told the British newspaper with a laugh. Diaz is "OK" with her decision to not have children and it helps that she's the type of person who "lives in the moment," not worried about the past or the future...Oh, and don't go thinking she's some lonely woman. "I also, by the way, have a lot of girl friends who don't have children," the actress continued. "It's not like I'm the spinster who didn't have a child.
