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."
