Sarah Jessica Parker Covers ‘Elle’ Magazine’s ‘Women In Hollywood’ Issue


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. Click below to see SJP’s Elle coverphoto, read her Carrie comment in full and check out a couple photos from her photospread.

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 … 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?

    No, I don’t want a third movie. I watched the original show from the very beginning back in 98. I bought the seasons on dvd as they were released and probably know every episode word for word. (yes, I’m that person. lol) I didn’t mind the first movie, but can’t stomach the second. I hope they never make a third. There’s really nothing they can do to make a story.

    • @Deb Hodgon — The first movie proves they can make another great film. The second movie was made in the midst of the Hollywood writer’s strike, that’s why the script was so terrible. If Michael Patrick King were given a chance, I know he can write a new film that would make us forget all about the shitty second film.

    Yep! I’d love a third film–the first 2 were SO much fun.
    Sarah does look great– discovered her on Square Pegs & she has been an interesting actress to watch mature, a wonderful person to admire over the years.
