Alison Brie doesn't want to have children.

The 35-year-old actress and her husband Dave Franco dote on their pet cats, Harry and Arturo, and she admitted they're the closest thing they'll have to kids of their own because she finds the idea of having a family ''stressful'' and relishes the freedom she has in her life and career without having to worry about dependents.

She said: ''The [cats are] our children. I don't really want to have kids.

''It's great because I don't worry about when should I get pregnant -- between seasons, while we're shooting the show -- I don't think about it every day. It would be nice, but I think of all the things that would be so stressful.

''I think about how much we're involved in our cats' lives. Oh my God, if it was a child!''

The 'GLOW' actress loves to ''hang out'' with her spouse in the evenings, but she and the 33-year-old actor are usually busy with other things during the day.

She told Sunday Times Style magazine: ''We're super-mellow.

''We are both superactive with our friends and work, so in the week we don't see each other during the day.

''We spend time together at night. We just like to hang out. Having a really supportive partner in my life and knowing that he loves me no matter what ... I've found my person.''

The former 'Mad Men' actress is selective about who she spends her spare time with, and most of her friends work in the film and TV industry too.

She said: ''I don't have a ton of childhood friends.

''You start to whittle them down as you get older because your time becomes really precious. My sister is my closest friend, probably. Most of my friends are in the industry.''
