Liza Minnelli Against Adopting Children

Instead of adopting children, Liza Minnelli chose to use her maternal instinct and fame to help kids in need.

Liza Minnelli decided against adopting children to concentrate on helping injured kids instead - because "God didn't have" motherhood in mind for her. The Cabaret entertainer, who has been married and divorced four times, tried to get pregnant on numerous occasions but failed to start her own family.

And she refused to adopt any children, opting instead to use her maternal instinct and fame to help kids in need. She tells U.S. host Larry King, "I couldn't have them (children). No (I never wanted to adopt). What happened was that I realised that if God didn't have that in mind for me, and I couldn't have my own, what do I do with these maternal feelings? Maybe there's somebody I can help. Maybe I should concentrate on other areas. And I got involved with brain injured children And that was fascinating."

Liza Minnelli also said she feels "sad" for Lindsay Lohan as she battles her addictions - because she understands what it's like to succumb to substance abuse. She herself had endured a lengthy battle with drugs which saw her enter rehab on numerous occasions.

She stated, "I feel sad. And I feel understanding. And I feel that there's another road to take. It doesn't have to be the way it is. I can't (regret it). I did it. And that's accepting. And accepting is probably the biggest part of the game."

And Minnelli insists she didn't find it too difficult to shake off her drug addiction. When King asked her, "Was it hard to get rid of it?", she replied, "Yeah, but not really hard. Not when you have support and your friends in AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), and you're doing stuff you love. And that's what I'm doing."
