In a recent appearance on "The Howard Stern Show," Seth Rogen spoke candidly about why he and his wife, Lauren Miller, weren't interested in having children.

With Rogen constantly acting, producing, doing his pottery, and, most recently, releasing his first book, and Miller's work as a screenwriter ("For a Good Time, Call...") and director ("Like Father"), Rogen says it's best they not have kids.

"People are always like - it's something I think I was uncomfortable answering this before - but they were like, 'How do you do so much?' The answer is I don't have kids," he told Stern, adding: "I have nothing else to do."

Rogen added that Miller felt the same way.

"I would say she wants kids less than I do," Rogen said with a laugh. "I could probably be talked into it - she's like no."

When Stern asked whether wanting kids would have been a dealbreaker in their relationship, Rogen said no.

"I don't know anyone who gets as much happiness out of their kids as we get out of our non-kids," Rogen told Stern. "Like, we're f---ing psyched all the time! We're laying in bed on Saturday mornings smoking weed, watching movies naked. If we had kids, we could not be f---ing doing this."

Stern pointed out that when you're a parent, the kids are the priority, to which Rogen responded: "I don't want that. That does not sound fun to me."

"And why? There's enough kids out there," Rogen continued. "We need more people? Who looks at the planet right now and thinks 'You know what we need right now? More f---ing people.' That's truly a confounding thing to me."
