Vivica A. Fox recently turned 50 years old, and she’s had a fabulous life and an impressive career. However, in an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? Fox shares with the media maven her biggest regret in life.
She revealed, “The biggest regret of my life that I have is that I didn’t have a child. But I’m a good godmother. I bring the best gifts and throw the best parties. If that’s the one thing that I have a regret about, that would be that I didn’t have a child.”
Oprah seemed a bit taken aback by the revelation. She responded, “I didn’t expect that answer.”
The Kill Bill: Vol. 1 star explained that seeing Halle Berry on the red carpet after having her first child had a deep impact on her thinking.
Fox explained, “I’ll never forget seeing Halle on the red carpet at the Essence luncheon, and she had just had Nahla. And I said, ‘Wow, she’s so beautiful.’ She said, ‘Vivica, if I knew then what I know now, I would’ve had five of them.’ And she said, ‘The joy that I see in her eyes is just like no other high that I’ve ever experienced.’ So I don’t get to see my eyes in a child.”
The Independence Day actress has had some high-profile romances, but they never brought the family she longed for. Some of Fox’s former paramours are 50 Cent, Jamie Foxx, Flo Rida and Dennis Rodman.
She admitted to BET in 2013 that she didn’t always choose the right mates.
Fox joked, “I used to be so lustful. I would lose my mind over a six-pack and a smile. It would get me every time and usually get me in trouble. Pretty eyes, pretty teeth? Forget about it! But I think now I’m looking for a good partner, just a good man, whereas before it would be mostly physical. Now, I need a man who’s a gentleman, more old-fashioned. Someone who I could laugh with and have fun with. I’m trying to date above 30 now. Thirty to 35 is the window. Not saying I won’t make an exception if someone special comes along, though!”
