Octavia SpencerOctavia Spencer has no regrets about not having children.

The Fruitvale Station star admits her eggs are almost "past their expiration date," but insists she is "fine" with her decision to focus on her career instead of starting a family.

"I should be married and have 19 kids. And now I'm thinking my eggs are dying on the shelf. They're going to go past their expiration date. But it's what I chose, so I'm fine with that decision," the 43-year-old actress said, speaking at a roundtable discussion for The Hollywood Reporter.

Julia Roberts also participated in the interview, along with Amy Adams, Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Thompson and Oprah Winfrey, and confessed she felt she "earned" a break from Hollywood to start her family, including twins, Hazel and Finn, eight, and Henry, six, with husband Danny Moder after almost two decades of acting: "I had been working for 18 years when I had Hazel and Finn almost nine years ago. So I felt like I earned that time in my house and in my kitchen and in bed all day with these two little people. I felt that was my present to myself."
