My children ruined my career," Lily Allen candidly admitted on a podcast, reflecting on the impact of motherhood on her pop stardom.

Allen emphasized the challenges, stating, "I love them and they complete me, but in terms of pop stardom, totally ruined it.

Dismissing the notion of "having it all," Allen asserted, "It really annoys me when people say you can have it all because, quite frankly, you can't.

Reflecting on her priorities, Allen remarked, "Some people choose their career over their children, and that's their prerogative.

Fox highlighted the difficulties, stating, "Hollywood is not adapted to women and us actually having lives and being moms.
