Sarah Jessica Parker brought her 19-year-old son James to the ‘AJLT’ premiere

HBO Max Screening of 'And Just Like That'

Here are some photos from last night’s New York premiere of And Just Like That. The episodes begin streaming today, and I’m sure some people have already watched some of it? All of the cast members were there, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth, Kristin Davis and even David Eigenberg and Niall Cunningham (who plays Miranda’s son Brady).

One of the big headlines from the premiere is that SJP was joined by her husband Matthew Broderick and their oldest child, their son James Wilkie Broderick. James is 19 years old now! I haven’t seen photos of him in years and I forgot that he’s a real grown-up boy now. He’s a nice-looking kid, and an interesting blend of both parents. His coloring is more Broderick but his angular face is more Parker.

SJP’s dress is Oscar de la Renta. She’s a huge fan of tulle and ballerina-esque looks, so this is on-brand for her. Kristin’s dress is boring and Cynthia’s creamsicle look is on-trend but not great. Sigh… I’m not looking forward to any of this.

    Oh I’m going to hate watch the show based of the trailer. Carrie is the woooooorrrrrsssssssttttt but I have some nostalgia for how much I liked the show back then.

    • Noki says:

      LMAO there is an actual blog called Carrie is the worst dedicates to exposing just how Carrie is actually a terrible person.

      • AmyB says:

        I watched the original SATC in the 90s/2000s as a late 20s woman coming into my 30s, and even then I could see how self absorbed and narcissistic Carrie was LOL! I liked all the other girls’ characters much better, even then. But looking back now through the lens of today…UGH, she is the worst!! Her on/off relationship with Big – gross. Her treatment of Aidan – gross. Her constant self- involvement when any of her other friends needed anything – gross. It was always about her. She is the worst LOL. People just admired her because she lived this TOTALLY unrealistic lavish lifestyle with a gorgeous wardrobe on a salary that could never afford any of it.

        And I know the original series was more based upon fun and comedy, but still addressing sexual issues for women, the other three women’s characters actually grew through the series. Carrie did not. Even in the stupid ass movies, she still didn’t haha!!

      • CoffeePants says:

        ‘Actually?’ Like it is a surprise?

        I honestly wasn’t into dramas, but the few episodes I have seen have shown some entitled, vapid, narcissistic woman who dates men exactly like her and seems to think she is the victim when it turns out that her men are assholes…like she is.

  2. Noki says:

    Is that actor the same Brady from the show? I remember thinking that little boy was one of the best casting I have ever seen.

    • LaUnicaAngelina says:

      I agree – he was the best. His name is Joseph Pupo so they cast a different actor. I wonder why.

      • L84Tea says:

        I’m guessing it’s because he might be a little too old now. They said Brady is 17 on the show.

  3. Mac says:

    I love SJP’s dress. Oscar de la Renta is my favorite.

    • kimmy says:

      I like the dress too, but gosh that harsh up-do and thick @$$ eyeliner….why???

      James is adorable!

      • pollyv says:

        Yes, that eyeliner and yanked-back updo are so unflattering on her. It’s difficult to understand why she continues that look. Does she have no advisors/stylists/friends that could gently tell her?

      • Huma says:

        She’s aged very heavily around the eyes. The hair gives her a bit of a lift and the eye makeup draws attention to itself instead of the wrinkles. It’s unflattering in one sense, but it does it’s job in that if you’re not looking too hard it takes a decade off.

      • Ashby says:

        Sorry, but SJP hard make-up and hair really age her.

        Kristin Davis looks wonderful to me, great hair and make up, she does not look anywhere near 56.

        I’m sure she had work done, but it seems well done to me.

        Of course genetics, eating really well, drinking lots of water, wearing sunscreen and moisturizer, focusing a lot on great skincare, working out regularly and sleeping enough for many years is crucial in order to look as great as she does at 56.

        The pressure must be enormous on actresses to look like they are forever young, but especially in something like this series that is focused so much on appearance and fashion.

        To me she is the best looking from the original 4 sex and the city women, awesome hair for sure and lovely eyes too.

        I have to start now at 28 to look as half as good as Kristin is today at 56.

    • jennifer says:

      I love it too. I think it is a reference to the ballerina/ tulle ensemble that was the hallmark of the series from the beginning–the endlessly played image of her in that outfit on the side of a bus, not her personal preference per se.

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        I really like it as well And Agree with @jennifer that it is definitely a callback to that opening image of the first series.

    • North of Boston says:

      I think I would have liked it better if the peek a boo part of the skirt had been a rich, darker color instead of the peach/pink which is too close in value to her skin tone IMO.

  4. Selene says:

    He looks so much like her!

    • TeamMeg says:

      He’s adorable. And looks so proud of his mom, and happy to be there!! Matthew, too. Very sweet to see, even if Carrie is the Worst LOL 😉

    • Red Weather Tiger says:

      He really does! He’s cute. She was pregnant with him IRL when she dated Berger onscreen….I hope that didn’t traumatize him in utero. Berger was terrible! 😀

    • Nievie says:

      yes, SJP’s jawline really works on him.

      I’m protest watching all of the early episodes so i can remember them in their pre-drama splendour.

      and samantha.

  5. AnnaC says:

    I love SJP’s dress and would so wear it if 1-I had the money and 2-anywhere to wear such a frock.

    James Wilkie goes to the Ivy in my state. Friends have seen the family when they’ve been in town to visit and said they are super low key, easy to miss but friendly if approached and SJP is tiny IRL.

  6. Cessily says:

    He looks exactly like the perfect combination of Patty Greene and Ferris Bueller..

  7. Jezz says:

    I love the dress and shoes. “She looks good. Well, she DOES!” (to quote Devil Wears Prada).
    MB looks adorable as ever, but appears to have gone blonde in front and grey in back–hee hee just like my Covid home-dyed hair!

  8. L84Tea says:

    I’m up at the crack of dawn, so I already watched the first two episodes they released. It was better than I thought. It’s still a little off, cringey, but not as cringey as the movies. Kristen Davis really did a number on her face–it’s reeeally distracting watching her. I won’t give any spoilers away, but….we were right about a lot of things here. 🙁

    • AmyB says:

      @L84Tea Yeah I too already watched it. I don’t know…why did they do this?? Money is the answer obviously. Kristin Davis is really distracting – you are right!! Ugh, she is so beautiful, why the F do women do this crap?

      I def could have done without this, but you are right, better than the movies, ESP that second one. I still wish they left this series alone when it ended in 2004.

      • Grace says:

        Did you happen to see her on Stephen Colbert? Kristen D. was a little over the top and her face…..she was so pretty…I guess Hollywood pressure, which is a shame.

      • AmyB says:

        @Grace No I did not. But watching the first two episodes of the new series was very disturbing to see her face. SJP and Cynthia Nixon have clearly not done much and it’s nice to see women finally represented like that – growing older without all the damn cosmetic surgery!! It def is a shame. It’s similar to like Meg Ryan or Courtney Cox, when they altered their face so much in the attempt to look younger; they ended up not even looking the same anymore. Very sad.

    • Oliphant says:

      I just watched the first 2 episodes and found the second surprisingly emotional, interested to see where they go with the rest of it. Some pretty cringe moments in the first episode and the convo Carrie and Miranda had about Samantha not talking to them was… Interesting.

      • L84Tea says:

        I felt like they were speaking directly to Kim Catrall in that scene!

      • Anne Call says:

        Emily Nussbaum of the New Yorker tweeted this morning she really enjoyed the first two episodes and felt like the series had moved in a good direction away from the original series. As people said in the Twitter thread that having a show that stars women of their age is just refreshing and appreciated. I never watched the original series but may check this new iteration out.

    • Mimi says:

      I haven’t watched yet but I read what happens and I am gutted. GUTTED

  9. Chime says:

    Emily Nussbaum said she liked it and that it’s not really like SATC. I generally trust her judgment so now I’m curious…

  10. MsIam says:

    That creamsicle dress is giving me a Quaker vibe, it just needs a white collar. Maybe it would better in the spring? And I would like SJP’s dress better if the tulle was the same color or maybe a color that wasn’t so jarring? I don’t know, i guess I’m just too boring to get it.

  11. Bishg says:

    I watched the first two episodes and didn’t enjoy them. It’s honestly a snooze fest and they tried very hard to hit all the diversity marks but it’s not seamless, it feels forced.

  12. CE says:

    I love how Cynthia Nixon’s hair for the show was sooo so so bad… and she immediately cuts it after into something much more elegant. Like why??

  13. Rural Juror says:

    The only reason I plan to watch this is because Samantha Irby is one of the writers and I will read anything she writes. If you’re not familiar with her work, I cannot recommend it enough. She has several books (we are never meeting in real life is my personal favorite) and also wrote for the show Shrill on hulu.

  14. Janey says:

    I’m literally watching ep 1 now and it’s cringey. Kristen’s face is a mess, the acting is baaaad, the fashion is good but it’s not nostalgic for me, they are flogging a dead cash cow.

  15. Kaye says:

    SJP and Broderick’s son looks a lot like Mathew Broderick’s father. He played the father o Family and has big time Irish roots.

  16. livealot says:

    I will always have a crush on Matthew Broderick. I like SJP’s dress band probably would only change out the shoes. Wish Cynthia’s hair color in the show was the same as here. Didn’t enjoy the gray as much from the trailers I’ve seen.

  17. Sid says:

    Wow, I remember when she was pregnant with him and now here he is all grown up. Time certainly waits for no one.

    • Jules says:

      I’ve never seen a photo of him, and now he’s a young adult! Just goes to show you that celebs can keep their private life private, even in NYC.

  18. Jaded says:

    I wish she’d go easier on the eyeliner, it looks really harsh. And the Croyden Facelift hair doesn’t help. The dress is pretty though.

  19. minx says:

    Sorry, not watching it. I’m just not interested in a Samantha-free SATC.

  20. Jessa says:

    That photo is not doing Cynthia’s dress justice. Other photos and videos I’ve seen are reading highlighter neon orange and it looks amazing.

  21. TIFFANY says:

    I hate that Kristen messed with her face so much.

    Little, subtle work was all her dermatologist should have suggested, if anything.

  22. lena horne says:

    They look good-

    Wish SJP would cut that ugly hair.

    Will watch soon.
