Angelina Jolie may just be the best gift-giver in Hollywood. Last year, she gave fiance and baby daddy Brad Pitt a freaking waterfall for Christmas. It had never occurred to me to want a waterfall before, but now I do.

I have to say, I’ve been on the fence about Zooey for awhile, but this interview painted a pretty interesting picture of her. (She also spoke about getting spit on by a bully in middle school: “I really don’t know why she spit at me. I guess I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. I remember I couldn’t believe it.”) And she’s not alone in not wanting kids; plenty of successful Hollywood stars plan on staying rugrat-free. Here are 10 more!
