Sarah Jessica Parker Covers 'The Edit' March 2013

Sarah Jessica Parker Covers 'The Edit' March 2013

Sarah Jessica Parker strikes a fierce pose on the latest cover of Net-A-Porter‘s digital magazine The Edit.

Here is what the 47-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On Anna­Sophia Robb playing young Carrie in The Carrie Diaries: “I’m not sure… You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity. She (Robb) is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it’s… odd.”

On Sex and the City‘s influence: “I think it certainly encouraged women to share more candidly. I don’t know if it empowered women. I hesitate to say whether we were the pioneers or whether we gave voice to something that was there, but I recognize there was a connection.”

On being a producer: “Being responsible to and for other people gives me an enormous amount of pride. Taking care of people’s needs, understanding budgets and finance, being part of difficult conversations, mediating, promoting people from within and really establishing that idea and living up to it, I love it.”

    God she’s up herself. She didn’t create Carrie. Carrie is a character from a book. Horse faced bitch.

    What an annoying comment. Why couldn’t she just wish the show good luck and move on.

  • funny witch

    She lost me after “odd” comment, she sound like jealousy old bi*ch.

  • Journalistic

    Love her and I wish people would let her move away from Carrie because Sex and the City is terrible in my opinion, well her character was at least.

    @Rachel: she made carrie the way she is . Carrie would not be the same without SJP . She is gorgeous on this cover btw

  • kel

    She’s her biggest fan.

  • an

    @funny witch: she is not jealous , I just think that’s it lil’ bit weird … She actually said she was glad that Anna Sophia got the part , and now that the show is cancelled she has a different point of view . That’s weird …I gotta say that ann sophia does a great job (apparently not so great ..) as carrie, but let’s be honnest carrie -sjp are more than connected .

    @an: Um.. they haven’t canceled the Carrie Diaries yet. Where did you get this information from?

    SJP has a close bond with the character, but her earlier life and family was never explored, and as we all know, who you were as a teen is wildly different from when you become an adult with a career.

  • Toni

    Of course it feels odd, she’s just honest. I read that the new girl playing Carrie was contacted by SJP and wished all the best doing the part, so I dont think its mean of her to say its odd.

  • Ceara

    @an: Carrie Diaries isn’t canceled, moron.

  • Ava

    What a ugly horse face annoying clown, she is so ridiculous , does she get what she is known for, looking like a horse and being a clothes horse, she’s pretentious enough that she thinks it makes her special from other ugly actress ….Ah wearing clothes your stylist picked out does not make you some intellectual … Shut up.

  • an

    @Ceara: don’t you call me moron ! there’s been rumours all over internet ! glad that’s not cancelled then

  • K

    AnnaSophia Robb is ten times a better actress than SJP ever will be.

  • me



  • rosie

    @Ava: you sound really ugly too

  • dylan

    There are a lot of bitter, jealous (& probably fat, pathetic & ugly) women hating on Ms Parker. she is an awesome, beautiful actress. Since when is saying it’s odd to see a charcter you made iconic played by someone else, so horrible?

  • Louanne

    SJP has achieved much much more than all that the fat and ugly girls who are calling her names will ever dream of achieving.
    Of course it feels odd. She made that character iconic and famous. She played and created it for many years. There will always be only one original Carrie Bradshaw on TV.

  • Kiddie

    She’s right about the impact of the show but the ‘test of generosity’ comment is totally egotistical! SITC was a show for brainless career women who only cared about nail polish and fashion.

  • Norman V. Jones

    just as Mary responded I am dazzled that you able to earn $4377 in four weeks on the computer. did you look at this site… http://www.snag4.cℴm

  • Portugal

    She is a filthy sub human jew! Looks like a busted up horse! Seen her in nyc once.

  • jill

    @Rachel: hater

  • jill

    @Portugal: get a life as you sit there behind yur computer talking shit i’d lovee to see what you look like

  • jill

    @Louanne: couldnt of said it better myself

  • jill

    @dylan: so true

  • gurliegal

    i just don’t understand people being so vile towards someone else who is successful or beautiful or famous just because they are 1 or more of those things.. she’s 47, looks ridiculously amazing. strong and sexy. She can say whatever she wants about a show that is only in existence to do its enormous popularity of its predecessors.

  • Tracey J

    Im so glad they cancelled carrei made no sense at all, and SJP is right it was odd. It sucked bigtime!
