Oprah: 'If I had kids, my kids would hate me'

Oprah: 'If I had kids, my kids would hate me'

(Yahoo!) - Oprah Winfrey seems to have it all, but the one thing she never wanted? Kids!

While the 60-year-old media mogul did have a baby when she was 14 (the child died weeks after birth), she revealed in the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment issue that she's actually known since she was younger that being a mom just wasn't for her.

"Gayle [King] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade home ec class, was writing down the names of her children," Winfrey said of her bff. "While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King."

Clearly her career has played a big part in her decision to not have a family, something she's thought a lot about. "If I had kids, my kids would hate me," she said.

Oprah revealed to Barbara Walters in 2010 what she thought would have happened if the circumstances were different and she ended up being a parent. "I'd be one of those people that the kid's coming and saying, 'Mom, you've neglected me.'"
