I was going to hold the Sarah Jessica Parker stories until we got some photos of tonight’s Sex and the City premiere in London, but it’s deader than dead around here, so why not? CB and I have both been a little tired with SJP, honestly. CB confessed that she tried to watch an SJP interview and all she felt was “fake fake fake”. Personally, I don’t think SJP is fake, I just think she’s full of sh-t. Horsesh-t, to be exact. Anyway, SJP has a bunch of new interviews, and most of them are about how fabulous the movie is (everyone else disagrees), how much all of the fabulous clothes cost ($10 million), and how she’s the world’s most hands-on mother. Except for those nine weeks where she dumped her newborn twins on the nannies. Oh, I enjoyed this Parade interview because of the subtext of Matthew Broderick’s “secret life”.
“I will never live anywhere else than New York because I just simply cannot leave the heartbeat of the city. I cannot do it. We have no space in our house in Manhattan. We’re bursting at the seams. I know there are homes with more than two or three bedrooms in the suburbs, but I just couldn’t move there, even to get extra room. I love New York too much,” Parker says.
Sarah Jessica Parker soared to fame and fortune as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, on HBO and on the big screen. Now, in Sex and the City 2, Parker is feeling a little closer to Carrie, who’s married and still living in the Big Apple. Parker, the proud mother of three kids with Matthew Broderick, juggles marriage, family and career. But she knows which comes first.
Sarah Jessica says, “I love just being with my family — going to the grocery store, cooking dinner, putting my twins to bed, changing their diapers, getting my older son ready for school and packing his lunch. Staying home with my family and my husband is the thing I love most in the world. Is it sexy? I don’t know about that, but it sure is fun and it’s definitely unpredictable.”
Matthew won’t mind watching her smooch with Chris Noth and John Corbett in SATC 2.
“We’ve been together for years. Both of us have starred in movies opposite lots of beautiful, smart, interesting people. But we have still come home to the same house, to each other. Matthew isn’t jealous when I’m in a movie with a sexy guy. He doesn’t seem to show any degree of being threatened by it. I don’t know, maybe he doesn’t care.”
Matthew Broderick deserves a secret life.
“I like having some mystery in our relationship. I like not knowing everything about my husband. I think people should have things that are theirs, things that are the unknown to someone else. I think it’s good to have some privacy and some secrets in our lives.”
The secret to keeping up with your best friends.
“You can be a good friend even when you barely have time. Make the effort to send a note, or call and say, ‘I’ve got children screaming in the background, but I miss you and I love you and I think about you. You’re on my mind, even if I don’t get to tell you every day.’ I think your real friends understand that there’s lots of responsibilities you have with your family, but you just figure out how to nurture your friendships any way you can.”
I’m all for keeping a little mystery in the relationship, but it’s like SJP is saying, “I know he’s fooling around, with God knows who, but whatever.” Also, when SJP was on Letterman two nights ago, she called Matthew average. Shocking! She was talking about James Wilkie’s height and how he’s “for the moment, more on the diminutive side. Some might call it a Napoleon complex, it [his age] gives him some [confidence] because he is so mature. He’s a brainiac… well I think so, naturally… He’s not quite tiny – that’s on my husband’s side – well, actually Matthew is average… not in personality or in intellect…. no, no, no, no, no… Let me clear this up. For the record, not in personality, intellect, charisma, talent, genuine likeability, well the list could go on and on… Anyway he’s average in height as I understand so the odds of our son being average in height and weight is perhaps promising.” I couldn’t care less that she’s talking about Matthew’s average-ness, but I feel for James Wilkie. That must suck to have your mom call you out on national television for being “more on the diminutive side.” Jeez, Mom.
By the way, if you want to read a slightly interesting piece about Pat Fields and why she dressed the SATC women like drag queen-maniac-clowns, HuffPo has a good one.
