"I've never said I didn't want kids...I said, 'I haven't had children thus far'. That sort of thing just kind of gets snipped up," contactmusic.com quoted Diaz as saying.
"The reason that I haven't had kids so far is because I realise when you have children, it takes up a large part of your life and, for whatever reason, I haven't had children," she added.
The actress is currently dating rocker Benji Madden.
She said: "I've always said if I wanted to have children in my life prior to this, I would've had children in my life. But I'm not opposed to children. I've always said I'm totally open to having children in my life.
"I'm not the person who's out there saying, 'I have to have children. I'm going to make this happen'. It's just not been what's driven me. I believe that children come into your life if they're meant to and I have so many children in my life."
