Sarah Jessica Parker Covers 'Marie Claire' September 2011

Sarah Jessica Parker covers Marie Claire‘s September 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (August 16).

Here’s what the 46-year-old I Don’t Know How She Does It actress had to share:

On not wanting to be a celebrity: “I never wanted to be a celebrity; I never wanted to be famous. And in my daily life, I work really hard to not trade on it in any way. I am so desperately worried about anybody saying, ‘She cut in line’ or ‘She took our table’ or She got out of jury duty’ or ‘She doesn’t do her own grocery shopping.’ The things that bother me are counter to who I am and the way I live. It’s not like it’s hard to be decent and respectful and well-behaved. I do wait in line, and I do take the subway, and I do do my own grocery shopping, and I do take the kids to school.”

    oh christ, speaking of horrible noses……….

  • Happy

    Oh, I’m so tired of seeing the same faces on the magazine covers. There are many new, talented and interesting actresses nowadays. Why not put those fresh faces or those actresses who rarely appear on the magazine covers?!

  • Ella

    I love her, v. down to earth and savvy!

  • Jess

    Never wanted to be a celebrity? Okay, I’ll trade places. I’ll take her millions and she can move into my 2500 sq ft home and take my job at a Children’s Museum making 9.00/hr. Not that I have it rough in any way….the grass is always greener I suppose.

  • Daniel

    u guys are so cruel, she’s beautiful and I like her

  • JL

    Drama queen.

  • gecko

    She’s a horrible actress and not attractive at all but the Press seems to LOVE her and hype the heckkkk out of her. why?

  • gecko

    Kim Catrall was always the better actress.

  • MarinĂ©s

    she ‘s beautiful at her age! I love this magazine!!

  • dholmas

    She comes from a very humble background and has said in many interviews she does not have live in help and trys to make her children’s lives as normal as possible. You never see her and Matthew out all of the time at parties. I admire her for how she is in her everyday life.

  • Jennica Panettiere

    Didn’t she make an effort to say she wanted her kids to have a public school education? That’s respectable of her.

  • Aundrea

    Robert Downey Jr. Was her boyfriend , and it was his drug problem that
    Broke them up ! Well were is your son , we see her with the twins all
    The time! Sure her twins are not old enough to go to school!

  • Unions

    I’m sure a public school in her “neighborhood” is an elite school with the best security and best teachers…Tell it to the average person coping with the public education disaster destroyed by Unions,

  • Weber from Brazil

    she might be cool and stylish
    but definitely is not that pretty!
    her face, arms and mainly her famous ugly hands are heavily airbrushed!!

    WHITE WINE?????!!!! HAHAHA

    @Jess: being famous doesnt always equate with being rich. Im pretty sure shes not complaining about having money she’s saying she’s not into the “diva personality” that a lot of celebrities have where they require someone at their feet 24/7 and not having to wait for anything.

  • sara

    she looks like a witch.

  • omri

    she was perfect cast in hocus pocus.
    (classic movie!!)

  • Jam

    If only more celebrities behave like she does.
    It is admirable behaving like normal people and not living in a rich and privileged bubble
    She is awesome

  • mrkonja fra brne

    She’s all NOSE.

  • Marieme

    She’s genuine and sweet. Very good person I think.
