Lily Tomlin has never been afraid to be herself and express her views and opinions. This means addressing the topic of why she never had children as well, which often comes up. The comedian gained fame on the 1960s sketch comedy show "Laugh-In."

She did think about having children when she met her wife Jane Wagner nearly 50 years ago, but in the end they decided it was just not for them. After years of being questioned about her decision, she has opened up about her choice.

"I look at my behavior and I don't think I could have done it," the 80-year-old said to Kevin Nealon during an episode of his YouTube series "Hiking With Kevin," which went live Thursday.

According to Tomlin's star sign Virgo, she could have been a very good mom. There were just a few minor character flaws that made her stop to think about the decision.

"I have no patience," she said, according to Closer Weekly. Close friend Jane Fonda would agree. "She says, 'You've got to develop some patience.'"

She also allegedly has a bit of a temper, which came out on the set of the film, "I Heart Huckabees."

Tomlin clashed with director David O. Russell, and the entire heated argument was caught on film.

"Did he yell at me? I yelled at him too. But he's a good friend," she said. "I said a lot of vulgar stuff. I regretted when I saw someone had videotaped it."

Tomlin previously told The Guardian that having children was never "an aspiration" of hers, although she did occasionally think it would be nice to have somebody who "looks like a replica of you in some fashion."

She and Wagner are on the same page when it comes to kids.

"So in retrospect, we say every day, 'I'm so glad we didn't have any children.' When I think of the world now, I don't want to even deal with having to raise a child," Tomlin said.
