Sarah Jessica Parker, 43, looked fabulous in the Sex and The City movie, in my opinion. I don’t understand the ire for this woman. She’s not a traditional beauty but she’s attractive, fit as anything and is outspoken without being obnoxious. She’s also open about her insecurities and her personal life. She is quoted as saying that she feels old and will try any face cream, but isn’t going to have surgery.
She said: “I feel so old and tired – I look around and everyone else seems so much younger! I buy face cream. I’ll try everything.
“Who knows if they work but I can’t help thinking the more money you spend, the better it must be!”
Parker – who has a five-year-old son James Wilkie with husband Matthew Broderick – recently revealed becoming a mother made her more romantic.
She said: “I surprise Matthew all the time with stuff. I buy him presents and leave him notes. And having a child makes a marriage much more romantic because you have this thing in common that you love in a new way.”

This quote is not dated or sourced, so it’s unclear how old it is, but it’s new to me. Last week we covered a story that Cate Blanchett said that people get plastic surgery out of “self-obsession and fear.” I mentioned that Cate also raves about an expensive wrinkle-reducing mask, and said that while facelifts and skincare are quite different, it didn’t quite seem fair to denounce people who opt for surgery. Good for Sarah Jessica Parker for admitting that she’s striving to wipe away those wrinkles, but for not going the surgical route. Given the latest story that she’s a smoker, though, she may as well give all the cash she’s wasting in the department store cosmetics department to charity where it will do some good. Nothing quite causes free radical damage and premature aging like cigarettes.
