13 Celebrities Who Chose a Childfree Life and Explained Why

Published

on

Despite the fact that tolerance and respect for other people’s choices has become a very important topic of discussion in modern society, childfree people are still believed to be “incomplete people.” And celebrities are the first people to attract a lot of attention, after all, they definitely have the money to raise children. But if we take a closer look at the reasons why famous women choose to be voluntarily childless, it will become evident that it is not always about pure selfishness.

We at Bright Side think that a woman remains a woman, a perfectly complete person, no matter whether she has children or not, and these 13 bright celebrities prove this point.

Cameron Diaz

46-year-old Cameron Diaz has said many times in her interviews that she is career-focused. The actress has been married since 2015 but she didn’t plan to have children before and she still doesn’t, even though she doesn’t mind looking after someone else’s kids. Cameron believes that many women are scared of saying that they don’t want to have children because of what society will say. But Diaz herself doesn’t worry about it much and she thinks that her life is great precisely because she doesn’t have children.

Kylie Minogue

The Australian Thumbelina, singer, and actress Kylie Minogue has had quite a few difficulties in her life, including cancer and a complicated toxic relationship. The latter, according to Kylie, led to the fact that she doesn’t want children. She has had many men in her life, but she has never met the one she would want to spend her life with surrounded by children. Kylie is not ready to give birth to a child and be a single mother, so she is still focused on her career.

Kim Cattrall

The star of Sex and the City is very much like her character Samantha when it comes to motherhood. Cattrall is not scared of changing men, she has been married 3 times and she gave up on the idea of having children back when she was 30 years old. At the time, Kim didn’t have a suitable candidate for the role of father and partner and she really didn’t think she needed to give birth to a child and be a single mother just to avoid people’s questions.

“I’m a woman who doesn’t have children and who can’t just sit still. I like children but only for a short time. At first, I think they are nice, funny, and cute and then, they give me a headache.”

Kim Cattrall

Marisa Tomei

Despite the many romantic relationships she’s had, including one with Robert Downey Jr., 54-year-old Marisa Tomei has never been married and she doesn’t have any children. The actress has repeatedly said that she is sick of the constant questions regarding children and people asking what is wrong with her.

“I’m not that big a fan of marriage as an institution and I don’t know why women need to have children to be seen as complete human beings.”

Marisa Tomei

Dita von Teese

Dita von Teese explains the fact that she doesn’t have children in a very easy way: She loves her job and her body way too much. And the men she has been in romantic relationships with have never wanted children.

“Before, I thought I would be married by 28 and would be retired. I couldn’t even imagine that my career would be in blossom. If I got pregnant, I would reconsider my views but even if it doesn’t happen, I won’t feel like I’m not a complete woman.”

Dita von Teese

Anastacia

This singer is reluctant to share things about her personal life and it is hard to find something interesting in the press. But Anastacia is quite open about her breast cancer, that she has had twice and was lucky to beat.

The fact that she beat the disease became the reason why Anastacia decided to not have children even through adoption. Before, she wanted to have children but now, after she beat cancer, the singer rediscovered her love for performances and she fell in love with her job again.

Winona Ryder

48-year-old Winona Ryder was once on the list of the most wanted brides in Hollywood. The actress had several big romantic relationships, but none of them resulted in children. Winona never had the burning desire to have children, but also didn’t exclude it as a possibility. But with age, the actress never felt the desire to have children and she couldn’t stop her career for a baby. She has enough kid time with her nephews. And also, Ryder thinks that she is still a child herself.

Alison Brie

In one of her interviews, the star of GLOW said that she didn’t want to have children and wasn’t going to have them. Brie made this decision together with her husband Dave Franco. They are interested in their jobs and children have been replaced by the cats that they love. Alison Brie is so worried about her pets that it terrifies her to think about the stress she would experience if she had children.

Jacqueline Bisset

74-year-old Jacqueline Bisset was on the list of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and the planet, for a long time and she was one of the main Hollywood heartbreakers. Many romances with the most famous and rich men of the world still didn’t convince the actress to get married and become a mother. But Jacqueline never regretted that she doesn’t have children and she thinks it was exactly what allowed her to do the things others wouldn’t be able to do in several lifetimes.

Renée Zellweger

Renée Zellweger never hid the fact that she doesn’t think that children are the point of her existence. For the star of Bridget Jones’s Diary, it is far more important to be able to do what she loves and take care of herself.

“Motherhood was never my dream, I never said things like ‘When I’m this old, I’ll have a baby, and then another one.’ I take whatever my life gives me every day, every minute, and other things just don’t matter.”

Renée Zellweger

Famke Janssen

The Dutch actress who became world-famous after her role in X-Men, is one of those people who doesn’t think that children are necessary to be happy. She realized that she didn’t want to have children after she got a dog. It’s enough for her to take care of her pet.

“My life revolves around my dog. I take as much care of him as mothers do for their children. Why would I have another baby?”

Famke Janssen

Oprah Winfrey

The most popular TV anchor in the US has never actually thought about having children. In her childhood, while her friends imagined themselves as mothers and dreamed of names for their future children, Oprah saw herself as an important political activist who could do a lot of good things for people.

Besides, when she was 14 years old, Oprah Winfrey was sexually abused. She got pregnant and had a son, but the child died soon afterward. So now Oprah Winfrey says that she doesn’t want to have children and she has never regretted her decision.

Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd is not only a famous actress but also a politician and humanitarian. The star decided that she doesn’t want to have children because she doesn’t see the point of having her own child when there are so many orphans and abandoned children who need love, care, and attention. The actress has had this idea since she was 18 and she still hasn’t changed her views. She spends her resources and energy on serving her cause and trying to make the world a place where every child feels needed and safe.

What do you think about people who’ve decided against having children? Do you think that this social phenomenon is a threat to humanity or does it make society better because people are more mature about making this important choice?

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg’s CEO ranking plummeted this year

Published

on

By

Facebook employees have long been known for their fierce loyalty to the company and its founder Mark Zuckerberg. In the aftermath of numerous privacy debacles, including ones in which Facebook has exposed users’ personal information and facilitated attempts to undermine American democracy, that enthusiasm seems to have flagged.

The Facebook CEO saw his ranking among top US CEOs plummet this year, from No. 16 in 2018 to No. 55 this year, though he does have an approval rating of 94 percent, according to new data from Glassdoor, a site where employees can anonymously rate their jobs and their CEOs. His approval rating was 96 percent last year.

The average CEO approval rating among the 900,000 employers reviewed on Glassdoor is 69 percent — so Zuckerberg’s 94 percent approval is well above average, even if it’s not as high as it used to be.

Back in 2013, when Glassdoor first started ranking CEOs, Mark Zuckerberg was ranked as the No. 1 CEO in the US, with a 99 percent approval rating, and the company overall was considered the best place to work. This year it dropped to the seventh-best place to work, from No. 1 in 2018.

Last year, even after Facebook had undergone a brutal 18 months of scandals and reshuffling, Recode’s Kurt Wagner wrote that “no one in Facebook’s upper ranks ever seems to leave the company.” That changed this year when two of the company’s most important executives — both named Chris — left. The company has also seen defections from leaders of the companies it has acquired, including the founders of WhatsApp and Instagram.

Employees at tech companies including Google, Uber, and Amazon have become increasingly vocal in their criticism of their employers. Facebook largely has avoided such blowback, but increased employee dissatisfaction could portend protests among Facebook workers as well.

Why Zuckerberg — and Facebook — are only now losing favor with some employees is unclear, though recent comments on Glassdoor about the company’s leadership provide some clues:

“Start taking your morale issue seriously. Leadership needs to take several steps back, really listen, and show that you are serious by taking action.” —Lead Data Specialist

“Due to the recent scandals, the company has become cautious to an extreme and every privacy decision is taken with painstakingly slow speed because it’s been vetted by layers and layers of people. It’s also a very fast paced and competitive place, so some people find it hard to keep up.” —Product Manager

“Very competitive environment. No[t] possible to succeed if you don’t work 60+ hours. Focus on short term impact due to performance cycle every 6 months. No clarity on expectations of roles. Mix signals from leadership about culture.” —Data Scientist

General public sentiment toward Facebook has become more negative in the last few years as the company has struggled with a number of issues on its platform, including Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and several privacy mishaps related to storing passwords on unencrypted servers and buggy software.

As a result, Zuckerberg and his company have been under fire from the media and politicians alike. The Federal Trade Commission is also reportedly preparing for a potential antitrust investigation of Facebook.

Facebook did not respond to multiple requests for comment for this story.

Other notable takeaways from the Glassdoor report: The CEO of enterprise software company VMware, Pat Gelsinger, has been buoyed by positive employee reviews and now ranks No. 1, a huge jump up from No. 78 last year. Salesforce CEOs Marc Benioff and Keith Block made the top 100 for the first time, ranking No. 17. Microsoft’s Satya Nadella jumped up from 20 to No. 6. The rank of Google CEO Sundar Pichai remained steady, dropping one to 46. Apple’s Tim Cook rose from 96 to 69.

Glassdoor’s large company CEO ratings were tabulated using reviews written by current and former employees between May 2, 2018, and May 1, 2019. Glassdoor uses a proprietary algorithm that considers quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews to calculate the exact approval rating. Only companies with at least 100 reviews each from both rank-and-file employees as well as senior management are considered in these rankings.

Reddit Users Talk About the Awkward Situations They Will Remember for the Rest of Their Lives

Published

We’re pretty sure that everyone has been in a situation when they were super embarrassed and just wanted to disappear forever. However, these otherwise awful situations prove to be quite interesting and unique which is why they’re enjoyed by hundreds and thousands of people online. The stories we’ve collected here are by far the best and we couldn’t help but share!

We at Bright Side think that if you can transform your unpleasant memories of an embarrassing situation that happened years ago into a funny story, you should. And that’s exactly what the people in this article managed to do.

  • I get into the elevator with some guy. We start going and he asks me, “Do you want to go to a cafe?” I smiled at him and said, “I do.” He looked at me in a weird way and pointed at his Bluetooth earpiece. So, have you ever wanted to jump into an elevator shaft?
  • The 2 things that our camp guides were most scared of were losing someone and someone getting pregnant. And so my friend Mary (we were 12 years old) told the camp guide that she seemed to have gotten pregnant (she just loved attention). The camp counselor was terrified and whispered, “From who?” Mary was scared and whispered back, “Does it have to be from someone?” The counselor yelled at her so loudly that I think half the camp woke up. -NikkiKi
  • I snapped this intriguing shot while driving. I captioned it with something like, “When you have a crazy day and a lot of work but you can’t forget about beauty because your skin won’t take care of itself”.
  • I was in the elevator area of my former job and wearing a skirt that was a little too big for me. Luckily, I had one of those long sweaters on over it because I was talking to the maintenance guy and the skirt just dropped to the floor like, “and we’re done here…” and the guy and I just stared at each other for a small eternity. — © sinicuichi
  • I’ll never forget how on one of my first days in college, I met a guy whose name was Chandler. When he asked me for my name, I told him I was Monica. My friend witnessed this conversation and later asked me why I lied. I said I wanted us to be like the characters from Friends. And he was like, “Are you nuts? Your name is Rachel, and there was a Rachel on the show!”
  • Once, I had this really weird conversation with a guy. I think he was too nervous:
  • I ran face first into a street light lamp post because I was staring (while walking) at a beautiful girl walking toward the direction where I was coming from. It was in front of the main gate of our university. Hundreds of students saw it. My friends laughed so hard. — © KiwiPin0
  • I’m a very responsible person. But once, after a crazy party, instead of setting my alarm clock, I entered “8:30” in my calculator.
  • Yesterday, after a bachelorette party, we went to a water park where I almost drowned. The next day I was very angry that the employees didn’t care about the safety of the visitors. But then my friends sent me this photo and it just turned out that it was me who was crazy and thought I was drowning in a pool for children.
  • A blind woman wanted to know where the front of the bank was and I pointed and said, “It’s over there.” — © Kirjath
  • My wife and I went out for a drink one night. We walk into a bar and I see someone I know with their back turned. I walk up behind them and tickle their sides. Turned out, I didn’t know this person, they just gave me a weird look and walked away. Got their spot at the bar though. — © buefordbaxter

  • My wife and daughter gave me an iPhone. I had never used one before and I decided to text a voice message. This is what I sent to my daughter:

  • I took my grandmother to Starbucks for the first time. A barista asked her a standard question: “What name should I put on the coffee?” Grandma was amazed, looked at him, then turned to me and said, “He wants to give my coffee a name. Is he a junkie? How was he even hired in the first place?”
  • It happened in my childhood. My mom was in the kitchen with her friend who was complaining that men don’t care about her at all. Then I said, “This is very bad. I also didn’t take care of my fish and now it’s dead. It’s sad, you are still so young.”
  • Before the prom, I went to a salon and asked to make the hairstyle like the one in the left photo to look like a princess. But I ended up looking like our principal:
