Cameron Diaz isn't ready to become a mother.
The 35-year-old actress says she would like children at some point in her life but is happy looking after her friends and family at the moment.
She said: "In a sense, I'm a mother now. I think we all have that maternal ability and we all give that to our friends and our family. I think that's a nurturing nature that we all have. I definitely don't want to have children right now.
"I think I'm pretty good with kids. I love kids. Kids are great. I treat kids like human beings because that's how I was treated - I talk to them like people and some kids get it and some kids don't."
The 'What Happens in Vegas' star - who has dated Matt Dillon, Jared Leto and Justin Timberlake - also revealed she doesn't think her 'Mr. Right' exists.
Cameron - who is currently single - added: "You're always told that he has to look like this, and this is how he exists in all the storybooks we've been given over the years - but it doesn't always come in those packages. And people are not always what they seem to be. I wasn't really big fairytale girl when I was growing up."
