Sarah Jessica Parker is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Elle magazine, devoted to the Women In Hollywood. SJP is featured alongside other actresses like Octavia Spencer, Elle Fanning, Emma Watson and more. Each actress is asked to comment on their role as a woman in Hollywood and, naturally, SJP commented on her most famous role … Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. According to Sarah, she really doesn’t want to take on any Carrie Bradshaw-like roles in the future.

SJP on Carrie Bradshaw and future roles….
“I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”
Firstly, SJP looks great in these photos. Secondly, I totally understand her aversion to playing any Carrie-like roles in future projects but … I’m not sure I totally believe that she is done with those kinds of roles. As you may know, SJP made her debut on Glee last week and on the show, she played the editor of Vogue.com … which is interesting because Carrie wrote for Vogue magazine on SaTC. As much as I know she wasn’t portraying Carrie Bradshaw, that’s all I saw. I think SJP will have to take on a role that is a HUGE departure for her to lose the Carrie Bradshaw association. Still, I don’t mind … not one bit. I’m still holding out for a third Sex and the City movie. Anyone with me?
