Our eternal love-hate-admiration-envy relationship with celebrities is making us question their decisions sometimes even more than our own, and we are so quick to judge them, especially when it comes to something as “scandalous” as a woman who does not want kids – oh my god, can it be?! The American journalist and strong advocate of feminism explained that “Everybody with a womb does not have to have a child any more than everybody with vocal cords has to be an opera singer”. Still, we are quick to judge these ladies especially when we see those same celebs “parenting” a dog instead of a child. Here, let us put them to the stand.
The world’s most famous “heir to the throne”, Paris Hilton has not one, not two, but eight pooches in her home. We do not know why she had the lucky seven before, but the eighth member of the family came to become ‘girlfriend’ to her Pomeranian Prince. So… mother Paris, is not that something we like to call the naughty i-word? Never mind, what is a family without love?
As she is becoming more and more popular in Hollywood, Jessica Chastain is even more exposed to the public eye, and people out there are wondering when she will have kids. It seems that she does not stress about it much, she never denied wanting to have kids, but she said that if that does not happen something else will. And someone else happened, her lovely dog Chaplin. Her loyal puppy is never leaving her side, in fact, once when she performed a show in Broadway, someone left the door of her dressing room opened, and Chaplin run out to join his mommy on the stage.
Ellen had an answer to the society with big expectations regarding women and motherhood:”I would not want to screw them up”. She explained that motherhood is a great responsibility which requires excellent skills and large amount of work. Hey, she is still a great mommy to her pooches, though. The two adorable puppies Wolf and Mabel even had major roles on her wedding with Portia, and the fabulous and romantic wedding pictures show the motherly love for these beauties.
The star is one of the loudest spokespeople for being child-free by choice, and she admits what many women are afraid to say life can be fulfilling even without offspring. The lady is surely willing to say an unpopular point of view and stick to it even when she is being attacked from each side. Well, at least she has her loyal doggies to defend her. The What Happens in Vegas star and her husband Benji Madden have a family of several dogs, and the bunch keeps on growing.
So what do you say, will is the verdict guilty or innocent for these ladies? Can the love for dogs redeem them from not obeying to society’s norms?
