Sarah Jessica Parker


From being broken up with by a note on a Post-It or having you're best friends boyfriend seeing you naked, we assumed that all the best moments from Sex and the City that we love so much were inspired by the experiences of real women. 

But according to Cynthia Nixon who played Miranda Hobbs on the show, the writing team did not including anything in the scripts that had not happened to a woman they actually knew. 

"Even though crazy and outlandish things happen in Sex And The City, fantastical things seemingly, they had a rule in the writers room that they couldn't put anything into an episode that hadn't literally happened to someone in the writer's room or someone that they knew first hand," said the actress speaking to IMDb Asks. 

"It couldn't be 'my father's brother's sister's shoe-repair guy heard once…' kind of thing – so the physical and sexual things that happened were real tales."

While we can't believe that this policy continued for the movies, it definitely helps to explain why this seminal series resonated with so many women and continues to do so today. 

"It was amazingly well written and very complicated in a way and so I think it's the reason it can bare repeated viewing."

"It's very dense and so much happens in every episode. The way the threads of the four different plotlines with the four different women intertwine is very intricate."

Does this mean that romances like Carrie and Big's can happen in real life too? 


Sex And The City has remained Sarah Jessica Parker's biggest and most memorable screen performances… ever. 

But it has now been revealed that she had major doubts about her role before the show even started. 

Indeed, SJP and husband Matthew Broderick shared their concerns with American musician and actor, Seth Rudetsky.

Seth worked with Matthew and Sarah on a Broadway show throughout the year and that was were Sarah told Seth her biggest doubts. 

Talking to US Vogue, Seth said: "We, of course, talked about Sex And The City, and turns out, Sarah was reluctant to do the pilot because she didn't really want to do a series.

"However she loved the script so she filmed it and then forgot about it. Months later she found out the show was picked up and she completely wanted to get out of it. I mean, completely."

Well, this comes as a MAJOR shock.

Seth added: "She tried various ways to get out of it, including telling HBO that she would film three projects for free if they'd release her from her contract!

"Basically, they convinced her to honour her deal, and she now has no regrets." You don't say.

We are definitely relieved that Sarah stayed on the play the part of the foever-famous Carrie Bradshaw. 


Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of this month’s Cosmopolitan magazine.

In the glossy, the actress, 50, dishes on how she deals with her fans, and some not so adoring public, when using social media.

Back in May, the star sent rumours, and fans, into overdrive when she posted a photo on Instagram that looked like she was back in character as Carrie Bradshaw. The caption had people online losing their minds.

For any fan of the series that seemed a pretty definite clue that another film could have been in the works. It was actually SJP teasing the launch of her new show line in Bloomingdales.

She got a lot of backlash from the fans, apparently.

She told the magazine “people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I'm not that clever!”

Despite the fact that time has passed, since both the picture was posted, and the last SATC film sequel was produced, SJP still gets some heat.

“I'm still finding people and being like, 'No @BoobityBopBeep! Why would I hurt you?' I've never been a mean girl."

After the second film received some less than enthusiastic reviews, it seems quite doubtful that there would be a third film in the future. But the star’s online activity has kept fans hopes alive.

Sarah says she wouldn’t tease without knowing for certain: “to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there's no movie?”

Her red carpet looks are also popular on social media. When asked if she had seen any of the Met Gala memes surrounded her style, it turns out her son was the one to spot the image.

"The one thing that I saw, which was so amazing — my son showed it to me — was my headpiece cooking Rihanna like an egg.”

She also spoke to the magazine about what she believes are the most pressing political issues and identifying as more of a humanist than a feminist. She says that she thinks the world would be more powerful if it were “a humanist movement.”



The past few days there has been A LOT of speculation about a third Sex and the City movie after Sarah Jessica Parker posted a cryptic Instagram post that channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw and sent fans crazy. 

Unfortunately, we are now here to break all your Sex and the City loving hearts. SJP has cleared up the rumours and it was in fact related to something completely different. 


The star was actually hinting about her shoe collection with Bloomingdales, which some people had guessed it was to begin with, unlike the rest of us who had already started planning which crew to invite to the cinema with us and started watching the entire show again from series one…


She shared the news on her Instagram for her SJP collection, along with the caption: "Pinch me, I'm dreaming. After months and months of sworn secrecy, I can finally shout the news from the rooftop. Or even better, from the iconic @bloomingdales awning. Welcome to New York, @sjpcollection. You're going to love it here. Finally, a permanent home in NYC. Ps. Forgive me for any previous misunderstandings. Twenty lashes with a wet noodle. Yours forever, Sj x" 

We are so excited about her Bloomingdale's news, but forgiving SJ for this won't be easy… 




Sex and the City fans, you might be able to start getting excited very soon as we think Sarah Jessica Parker has just hinted at a third movie.

The actress sent fans everywhere into a frenzy as she posted a VERY Carrie Bradshaw looking picture to Instagram last night.

Carrying a Bloomingdale's bag in a very flattering dress, heels and sunglasses, she captioned the photo: "Well. I guess the cat's out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I'm under strict gag order until then. Xx, Sj."

We doubt she would be so mean that she could tease us like this on purpose.  

The last movie was released in 2010 and we have been waiting for another ever since.

Fingers crossed.


Actress Sarah Jessica Parker turns 50 today, and while she's already hit headlines in the last 24 hours by showing off her seriously epic side-eye, we couldn't let that be the only way we marked her big day!

SJP will forever be remembered for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, and while we loved the show and the characters to pieces, there's no denying that Carrie could be a little annoying at times. Okay, very annoying. All the time.

Here are just a few moments that made us cringe internally…

1. The time she freaked out while trying on wedding dresses
Of course it's going to make you itchy, it's made of cheap ugly lace…


2. The time she forced Charlotte to pawn her engagement ring to help with rent
What. On. Earth.


3. The time she said "You have to forgive me" over and over and over after cheating


4. The time she couldn't grasp how a computer worked
Thank God he couldn't see you right then, Carrie.


5. The time she compared herself to a horse in Central Park
As you do.


6. Every time she brought the conversation back to her own problems
Abortions, cancer, divorce… she always managed to link it back to her own life. Commendable, really.


7. The time she partied all night before a shoot and was annoyed when she looked bad
That's life, Carrie.


8. The time she pinned a giant corsage onto her dress just 'cos.
Not to mention the many, many other questionable outfit choices. Oh, Carrie. Stick to the Dior.




Sarah Jessica Parker was celebrating her 50th birthday last night at the New York Rangers game, but she didn't exactly seem in the party mood, if the filthy looks she was throwing around were anything to go by.

One smart Vine user uploaded this clip of Sarah Jessica looking less than chuffed with herself, as her fellow actor Tom Hanks chatted away in blissful ignorance just a foot away.

Maybe he casually mentioned that he hates the SATC2 movie as much as the rest of us…or maybe Sarah Jessica was just chewing her gum really intently? Hard to know for sure…

Whatever was going on, the actress looked a little more pleased in this photo, taken later in the game:

Smile SJP, it's your birthday after all!



Are you excited for another Sex and the the City movie?!

We didn’t think so…

However, it looks as if that may be just what is on the cards after major recent hints.

Kristin Davis spoke to E! News reporters at an Oxfam event in Hollywood last night about the possibility of SATC 3, saying: “I think we’d all like to do it again. We want to do it!”

The actress' words are only the most recent hint that a third movie could be on the way, after Sarah Jessica Parker tweeted Kristin late last year asking if she had 'heard the news'. 

Following the TV series successful eight year run, SATC hit cinemas and everyone felt a sense of closure. Then they made another one….set in Dubai where Carrie’s ex Aiden turns up.

So what could possibly happen in a third movie? We’re not so sure we want to find out…



So Sarah Jessica Parker has sent us all into a tizzy with her latest social media post.

Remember when we told you that Jennifer Hudson said there was a very big possibility of a third Sex and the City movie?

Well, SJP has just added further fuel to the fire that this may actually be happening!

The actress took to Instagram to share a picture of herself arranging some of her fabulous shoes along a set of steps, with the teasing caption:

“It was take your @sjpcollection shoes to work day. #longdayforCarrie #whewwwwthosesteps #runninginheels #taxi!”

Did she actually just reference Carrie Bradshaw?!

Cue fans of the cult show and movies everywhere going into complete meltdown.

Naturally, as happens when thousands of crazed women are flapping about a SATC sequel, SJP sensed our excitement – only to shoot it down!

“Oh no. Eek. Sorry. No. I was just talking about the shoes. Oh man. Geesh. Sorry,” she wrote.

Is she protesting a little much, maybe? Trying to throw us off the scent?

Somehow we don’t believe her….


Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans will be delighted (or devastated) to hear that Xander has finally found his true love!

Actor Nicholas Brendon, famous for his role as the lovable geek, got married to girlfriend Moonda Tee in Las Vegas last week.

He revealed the news on Twitter with this pic, and the caption "We're married!"

We like the beard! Moonda also shared a couple of pictures on her Facebook page, adding that her funky hair was her "something blue" for the wedding day.

Looks like it was a small ceremony with not many guests – no chance of a Buffy reunion then?

If the quickie wedding in Vegas wasn't dramatic enough, it turns out Nicholas had only popped the question three days beforehand! Last Monday, he shared this snap on Twitter of his surprise proposal… in a hairdresser's? Very romantic!

Although he hasn't quite enjoyed the success that co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar has, Nick has been doing well for himself since Buffy ended in 2003, appearing on Criminal Minds and Private Practice among other shows.

We wish the happy couple all the best!



Sex and the City fans everywhere got some good news last week, after Jennifer Hudson sneakily revealed that a Sex and the City 3 film might be in the pipeline.

Jennifer, who played Carrie's assistant in the first movie, admitted in an interview that the possibility of a third instalment had been discussed.

We were reluctant to believe the news until we heard it from a more reliable source though – and who's more reliable than Carrie Bradshaw herself?

Yep, Sarah Jessica Parker seems to be getting excited about a sequel too, if her Twitter exchange with fellow SATC star Kristin Davis is anything to go by.

Things kicked off when Kristin tweeted Sarah Jessica to say she missed her, to which the star replied:

Kristin wasn't giving anything away – but it all sounded very positive:

Much as we'd love to see the girls back on our screens though, we hope that the third film won't be quite as ridiculous as SATC 2…

Let's keep it to New York this time, okay?!



Maire O’Flynn, is the envy of all Sex and the City fans right now (us included) – as she managed to meet her hero and style icon, Sarah Jessica Parker on her wedding day.

Marie and her new husband, Peter were enjoying their big day in Donegal, when the actress happened to arrive at the same hotel with her husband, Matthew Broderick

The bride said that even though she was hesitant at first to speak to the actress, guests insisted it was too big of an opportunity to ignore.

“I was very hesitant to approach her because I didn’t want to disturb her on her holiday and at a private dinner. But a few of the other guests thought it would be a missed opportunity if I didn’t get a photo on my big day with such an iconic celebrity.”

Marie’s brother then went over to the SATC star who said she would love to meet the bride after she had finished her meal. Sarah then posed with Marie before she left the hotel, and even complimented Marie on her wedding dress.

“She said that I looked beautiful and hoped that I was having a great day… It added a bit of celebrity status to the occasion.”

Well Marie got the SJP approval, what more can you ask for?
