David Letterman reveals major “Sex and The City” movie spoiler (spoiler alert)

Sarah Jessica Parker was on David Letterman last night. She told a cute story about how her five and a half year-old son, James, asked her politely when she returned from her European appearances for the film is she brought him a present. Dave asked whether Parker, 43, plans to have another child and she just started laughing and didn’t answer the question. Dave said she smelled great and asked about her perfume and she said it’s a “genderless” fragrance she’s developed that’s supposed to work for both men and women.

Then Parker said she loved the “Peidmont Bird Callers” from Johnny Carson’s show. She proceeded to demonstrate a bird call for a rare bird called the “Bleeker Street Purple Beaked Zinglander” that she had perfected and that was pretty fun.

After the break they started talking about the Sex and The City movie, which is out in the US on May 30th. Dave teased Parker about the hat she wore to the London premiere. Then Dave let slip a major spoiler for the film, and Jessica was kind of shocked that he said it. It seemed to me from her reaction that Dave didn’t tell her ahead of time he was going to reveal the spoiler.

———————spoilers follow———————

Dave: “How did the premiere go in London. I have seen the film, and I know who dies in the movie, but I won’t.”

SJP [looks away with open mouth]: “Unbelievable.”

Dave: “Sorry, you’re not supposed to – I think people know that somebody dies.”

SJP [still kind of shocked] “Well they do now.

“I’m going to tell you this… We really wanted to give the audience everything they thought they wanted, and everything they didn’t know they want. And yes, all four of us die, but I didn’t want to say anything else… it’s pretty surprising when we die. But the next four women are amazing.”

Damn! I can’t believe Dave did that. This is the first I’ve heard of anyone dying in the film and I read entertainment news all day. I love reading spoilers, though, and I’ll read the whole plot outline on Wikipedia for a favorite show before I get a chance to see it. For a lot of people it’s a major letdown to know what happens before they see a movie or show, though, and Dave should have known better than to say that someone dies in the film. Now I want to see it more, because I really want to know who dies!

Sarah Jessica Parker is shown outside the Late Show yesterday. Thanks to WENN for these photos and Redlasso for the videos.

    yeah, cynthia nixon let that slip a while back but they seemed to cover up pretty nicely from it but i guess its confirmed now. good thing i don’t care!! woohoo!

  2. Leah says:

    Whoa, that would be embarrassing.

  3. Hollz says:

    great, now i have to go see it- i want to know who dies!!!

  4. jade says:

    i knew someone dies too! and i know who it is…

  5. LiLi says:

    can’t she be a host?
    she’s so fun to listen to.

  6. Anna says:

    I’m a film critic and I saw the press screening yesterday :) I’m having a ball with this piece of news. But I can’t say anymore, because I’ve signed a non-disclosure agreement :) :) :) I can’t give away any important plot points. Not that there really were any in this boring, bland movie. It’s not getting a good review from me…

  7. Musey says:

    I just figured they were going to do that thing where they hype it up and make it sound like a really major character is dying, and then it just turns out to be a minor character nobody cares much about.

    My money is on it being Steve’s Maaaaaa.

  8. Bellatrix says:

    The SATC movie hints are very tempting… I just need to see that movie. Although I had heard of the “somebody dies” part.
    I thought it might be Big because of his heart problems in the fifth season.

    But still, it doesn’t beat the Harry Potter hype around the last book. :lol:
    I’m a sucker for spoilers.

  9. Anna says:

    Musey: Steve’s Maaaaa is not in the movie. :)

    Everybody: this movie really isn’t worth seeing! Don’t believe everything you hear, it might just be to get you to want to see the movie.

  10. vdantev says:

    SJP is going to pull off her face and reveal she’s a fembot, right ?

  11. CandyKay says:

    I think what was on Letterman was perhaps a fake spoiler – an in-joke with SJP. I found another link online with what seems like more probable plot points… the Celebitchy system doesn’t seem to allow the posting of links.

  12. Sarah says:

    @CandyKay… I think so too. I think Dave just let that slip out because he KNEW it isn’t true. That’s a kinda weird for the SatC movie when really sb is gonna die. I just don’t believe it and think it’s perfect marketing to drag more ppl into that most likely rather boring movie. :roll: Whatever… I am not gonna watch it anyways… no matter what. Sb s gonna tell me IF there is really sth interesting to happen… :wink:

  13. Patty says:

    Big Dies. They even said on Oprah that he is not in the movie long :lol:

  14. nl says:

    it’s a movie people.

  15. Simon Scowl says:

    Wow, Dave really ruined it for every 45-year-old childless crone in America.

  16. ADD says:

    Yes, Anna, you are terribly important and oblique.
    Now go back to your six kids, family-sized bag of Cheetos on your couch in Kentucky, and your very active fantasy life.

  17. fgh says:

    ADD…if you only knew who Anna was…and I am.

  18. Jaclyn says:

    WHAT???? They die?? NOOO!!! 8O

  19. Anna says:

    Awwww, ADD, honey, don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful.

  20. KDRockstar says:

    “Wow, Dave really ruined it for every 45-year-old childless crone in America.”


    I wish they would all die and that we could come up with a constitutional amendment that requires the burning of every DVD.

  21. CeeJay says:

    This has been out there for weeks. Not sure I really care. I’ll go to the show because it’s there, but so far I’ve heard it’s a real loser. Anna’s probably right even if she is eating Cheetos while she reviews her flicks.

  22. Anna says:

    Cheetos? I have no idea what they even are. I’m guessing some kind of American snack? All I know is they don’t have them in Switzerland.

    What have I ever done to you people? I could have chosen to spoil all your fun and didn’t (even though it’s a bad movie and I really don’t want people giving it more money). These baseless accusations of me being fake are hurtful, I just want you to know that. Just because I comment on an internet blog, doesn’t mean I don’t exist and don’t have a life and thus need to make one up.

  23. busybee says:

    yeah, it was a while ago that Cynthia Nixon told everyone that someone dies.

    Not new.

  24. Sarah says:

    Lol they have cheetos in Switzerland.

  25. Claire says:

    No one dies? This is stupid.
