Sarah Jessica Parker is the Poster Girl for the New Manhattan
Sarah Jessica Parker is on the latest cover of New York Magazine, promoting the upcoming Sex and the City movie, out May 30. Here’s what she had to say:
On her husband Matthew Broderick: “Matthew doesn’t have enough friends [but mostly has gay friends in New York]. He’s very bright. He’s very dry, and he’s a contrarian, because he enjoys it. And he’s not soft, and he basically turns out to be a very good judge of character, and it just wasn’t his nature prior to having a child to be—he’s kind of immune to anything that even stank of being treacly or insipid.”
On her fans: “They’re always, always kind. And I think to see me on the streets of New York, in a place that they might imagine the character would be—it makes people feel good.”
On children being fair game for paparazzi: “[It's become more prevalent] over the last four years, even more so the last 24 months. Now we just kind of eat it. It’s like empty calories. It’s s—. And it’s so base. I feel very ashamed, I feel like I’m like a—the town trollop. It makes me feel ashamed of my work. And I’m not. But I’m attached to this culture now in a way that, it’s kind of vulgar. And I feel cheapened. And I feel like I’m cheapening the school, like I’m bringing dirt, like I’m bad for the neighborhood.”
