Sarah Jessica Parker is the only star of ‘Sex and the City 2’


This is the just-released poster for Sex and the City 2, which will be out next year. Michael K at D Listed was all over this earlier today, saying that “the Photoshop wizards got a little “carried away” and turned her into some kind of pre-op zombie Matthew McConaughey who is a proud graduate of Kanye West’s School of Ridiculous Eyewear.” Granted, this sh-t is Photoshopped. And yes, it’s ugly. But if it was really Photoshopped into oblivion, wouldn’t they have done something better with her neck and knees? I feel like the Photoshop people just decided to put all of Sarah Jessica Parker’s “problem areas” in shadow, as if the eye could be confused so easily. It can’t. Oh, and here’s a wild question… where the f-ck are Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis? If the film is just about Carrie and her crap, no one will give a sh-t.

In other SJP news, when she was in London for the Did You Hear About The Morgans? premiere, the Telegraph asked her about her workouts. Her answer was cryptic:

When asked at the premiere of Did You Hear About The Morgans? in Leicester Square, a film about a couple who join the witness protection programme, she answers: “By running around, stressed, no sleep. I guess I try to be disciplined.”

No doubt she and Matthew Broderick, her husband, are kept busy by their twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha, who were born using a surrogate in June this year, along with their son James, seven.

Her co-star Hugh Grant is also impressed by her energy. “I’ll never be like her,” he laments.

[From The Telegraph]

Eh. I think SJP is just one of those women who is naturally skinny. Maybe it has to do with stress or running around or her metabolism, but I don’t think she’s the kind of woman who compulsively diets or works out. Just my take.

Just one more thing… SJP has a not-so-secret admirer. His name is Hugh Grant, and he is enamored with his Morgans costar. He told the British papers that he wished he could marry SJP because: “She would be a very good wife. She’s very caring. She lives in her own little world and I have literally fallen in love with her.” Aw… that’s sweet. Never in a million years would I have put the two of them together in a film or in life, but apparently they adored each other, and it seems very genuine.

    Well, when you only eat oats, carrots and the occasional sugar cube.. (rimshot)

    Yeah, I agree, she looks like one of those jittery girls who can eat a couple thousand calories a day and still manage to be stringy.

  2. lucy2 says:

    She is naturally skinny and tiny, but also probably under-eats (does she still smoke a lot too?).
    That’s kind of a shame the poster is only her. The thing I liked best about the show was the strong bond of friendship between the 4 women. Each on their own was kind of annoying, but together they worked. I’m sure Kim Catrall is seething somewhere today though, seeing this poster!

  3. pixiegirl says:

    Yeah, she’s always be very thin. And boring.

  4. emma says:

    perhaps the other will have individual posters as well

  5. BitterBetty says:

    SATC2: the future.


  6. Obvious says:

    if this is the poster i feel this will be extraordinarily carrie heavy and i won’t be watching it

  7. filthycute says:

    Uh oh. I smell trouble (and sex).

  8. crash2GO2 says:

    I think Sarah and Hugh would be lovely together!

    She was a ballerina, so she learned young to under-eat, workout compulsively and smoke to stay thin.

  9. Dorothy says:

    I posted yesterday that I would LOVE to see them as a couple!! I think i said “kick Matthew Broderick to the CURB”

    Maybe they are going to come out with a poster for each of the girls. each one doing the catwalk.

  10. JLM says:

    They do make kind of an interesting couple…hmm…

  11. Tia C says:

    @ snowball – LOL at the “oats” comment!

    They probably will have a poster for each woman. I hope so anyway, otherwise that’s really not fair. SATC is not just about Carrie.

    Who knows, maybe SJP and Hugh would make a good couple. It would be nice to see him happy finally. But she’s kind of already taken, so…that’s not likely.

  12. Neelyo says:

    The posters for the first one were only her too. At least the first ones that had the slogan, ‘Get Carried Away!’were. Maybe they added the others later, but it’s still up in Astoria so I see it everytime I go visit my friend there.

  13. wow says:

    SJP’s body is killer! She usually always looks awesome, physically.

  14. Ron says:

    This is the first coming soon poster, so maybe the actual movie poster will feature the others. Who knows. As long as they are able to cash their big ole checks I am sure none of them really cares

  15. Firestarter says:

    Please, let this movie be the last.

  16. diva says:

    SATC when it started was all about being sexy,single, and all the misadventures about trying to find a man in the city and of course fashion. I don’t think there is anything sexy about their lives now.

  17. Goddess711 says:

    That poster sucks. If that’s the promo, I definitely wouldn’t waste the money seeing it. The first movie was bad enough with no “click” between the actresses but this is a definite slap across the chops to the other women; they made that series what it was together. I think SJP is an attention whore. So is Hugh. It would never work between them. She needs a sop like MB who doesn’t mind her being in the limelight even though he’s the one with talent out of the two.

  18. juiceinla says:

    Hugh and Sara? hmm- I would have guessed Hugh and Matthew first- aww. not nice, eh? Once a Beard always a Beard? boy I am catty today. I don’t really mean it!…

  19. Ron says:

    Diva–I put a note in my outlook to put you out to pasture the minute you turn 40, there will be nothing sexy about you anymore after that. Rolling of eyes seen from the moon. Personally I have never found SJP that attractive, but I still think that Kim Catrall and Kristen Davis are hot. Not saying that these movies are high art but they obviously connect with a huge audience of women who relate to the characters lives.

  20. canadianchick says:

    Yep the chemistry among the 4 women was always most important in the series, never understood the overfocus on her. And I hate her stupid screech and ballet jóg that she does when she acts-as if women do that. I think Mathew Broderick is a weeny with a teeny peeny, go Hugh Go!

  21. Emily says:

    I’m with Firestarter, flog this horse any more and it’ll come back as a zombie.

  22. Newyorking says:

    I never liked SJP in SATC nor her acting – she seemed so over the top and annoying and artificial. Kim/Samantha was my favorite because she really wore her character naturally. A pity that SATC has become all about Carrie, when it really is not. I don’t want to see an old lady like her having you know what umpteen times with younger guys. Either have all of them or someone younger. They are too old for this stuff.

  23. Larissa says:

    oh my gawd, that´s what the next TERMINATOR poster should look like! lmao

  24. Bete says:

    I’m still trying to work out how she is a star. She can’t act. She is an eyesore…and so on.
    The pathetic storyline of this series will continue. Female commenters will call me a bitch for saying that. It just goes to show, when women/actresses have money, they can contract an entire team to transform them into sex goddesses.

  25. Emily says:

    LMAO@ Larissa!

  26. Feebee says:

    I agree with the others who assume she ‘undereats’. What a nice way of saying she half starves herself most days, or wait… “forgets to eat”. But also agree she’s always had a dancer’s frame.

    Ah so nice of Hugh to make those comments. Always easy to though when the object is a married mother of three. Pretty safe. Ooh, I forgot about the likes of ‘In Touch’ etc.

  27. Ggirl says:

    Talk about a lack of self-perception! This ass of a poster only reinforces my belief that SJP is delusional! Is it possible for her to think that SHE ALONE is responsible for the long ago success of SATC (early seasons before she turned it into the “The Carrie Show”). I don’t want to see another less than mediocre 2 hour yawn fest with her obnoxious a** as the focus! Best actor of the four women is Cynthia Nixon, hands down. My favorite character is still Samantha (Kim Cattrall). Her fearlessness was so refreshing and entertaining. I couldn’t stand how SJP insisted that Carrie act the most ‘dignified’ and ‘lady like’ (no nudity or cursing for little Carrie and SJP). I also noticed in the movie that she still took cheap little shots at Samantha like she did at the end of the series. It just reinforced my dislike of her character and reflected SJP’s self centeredness as a producer for shaping her character into this bland, self righteous non-human brat. SJP doesn’t seem to realize that she IS NOT the reason SATC had fans. Suggested reading for Sarah Jessica: How to define an ENSEMBLE CAST.

  28. Cat says:

    Agreed with all the above! They could cut out Carrie’s character and it wouldn’t make me stop watching the series.
    And yeah, the show has changed from a friendly, sexy look at NYC life into a bunch of elitist women buying clothes and having sex occasionally.

  29. Dobben says:

    Well, I like SJP. I think all the hate on her appearance (on CB — the post and the comments above, and elsewhere) is sad. I wonder what the neck, knees, face, etc. of some of you look like? And at 44, almost 45? Hmmm….

    Anyway, I think she should ditch Broderick, who always looks completely sullen in every photo I’ve ever seen him in, and hook up with Hugh. Sounds like he would spend the rest of his days adoring her… as she deserves.

    @ Snowball ‘Well, when you only eat oats, carrots and the occasional sugar cube.. (rimshot)”

    I look for your comments everyday!! Your hilarious!!

  31. meglet says:

    @emma, I was thinking the same.


    SJP and Hugh would make a great couple and I absolutely love SJP! She has a very down to earth personality, not full of herself, seem very humble. I’m sure there are 3 more posters coming out. All the ladies got equal exposure for the last movie and they will for this one. I’m very excited and can’t wait for the movie to be released in May. I love her style, her vibe and the total SATC series.
