Christopher Walken is glad he never had kids. The Seven Psychopaths star - who has been married to casting director Georgianne Thon for almost 50 years - is content without having become a father as it would have affected his acting ambitions. Asked if his career would have been possible with children, he told The Guardian newspaper: "Absolutely not. I'm sure many of the kids I knew as a child would have continued in show business, but they had kids of their own [and] had to do something dependable. I didn't, so I could get by even in periods of unemployment." The 69-year-old actor is used to playing eccentric characters, but says his own "conservative" lifestyle is much more unremarkable. He said: "My life is really quite conservative. I've been married nearly 50 years. I don't have hobbies or children. I don't much care to travel. I've never had a big social life. I just stay at home, except when I go to work. So in that sense, I'm a regular guy."
