Childfree Celebrity Spotlight - Christopher Walken
This morning I was watching CBS Sunday Morning and they were interviewing Christopher Walken. At one point, the interviewer asked about the fact that he and his wife of 43 years, Georgianne Walken, never had children. Walken replied, "No, they are miracle, but it just never happened" (the typical celebrity soft-pedal). Thankfully, the interviewer pressed on, "Did you want kids?" He paused, laughed and said, "No."
In doing more research about Walken's childfree status, I have read that he credits his prolific film career to not having kids. If anyone finds more quotes from Walken on being childfree, please comment and I will add them to this entry.
