Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have known each other for 10 years and have been married for more than five. But it still might be a while before they begin to raise a family.

“You can’t be selfish and have a child,” Gellar, 30, tells Maxim in its December issue. “Right now I want to live my life and have fun. I want to go sit in my Jacuzzi and drink wine all night.”

Or maybe hit the town. “When I’m home in New York, my wild side comes out,” she admits. “That’s when I go dancing until five in the morning.”

Prinze, at 31, is only a year older. But it sounds like he sometimes has a hard time keeping up. “Freddie likes to say I’m so crazy, it’s like being married to five different women,” says Gellar.

But she says their marriage is still exciting. “As an actor every three months you have a new haircut or hair color, so it’s like being with a different person. And a lot of high heels!” she tells the magazine. “We just had one of those double showers and a custom bathtub built for two put in. It has colored lights.”

Gellar made her name as the star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and she’s still proud of the TV series. “There wasn’t anything else at the time that said women could be flawed and sexy and kick ass,” she said.

Next up for the actress: a turn in Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales, in which she plays a porn star. “When you think about who should play a porn star, don’t I just pop into your mind?” she says.
