Sarah Jessica Parker Says She's a Humanist, Not a Feminist

Sarah Jessica Parker is pretty in pink on the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s August 2015 issue, on newsstands July 14.

Here is what the 50-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On SATC 3 and her Instagram post: “Oh my god. When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I’m not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there’s no movie? I’m still finding people and being like, ‘No @BoobityBopBeep! Why would I hurt you?’ I’ve never been a mean girl.”

On being a humanist and not a feminist: “As [playwright] Wendy Wasserstein would say, I’m a humanist. I’m enormously appreciative of the work that my mother’s generation did. We are the beneficiaries of a lot of disappointment, heartache, discouragement, and misunderstanding. But I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles. People of color, gays, lesbians, and transgenders who are carving out this space. I’m not spitting in the face or being lazy about what still needs to be done—but I don’t think it’s just women anymore. We would be so enormously powerful if it were a humanist movement.”

On whether she has seen any of her Met Gala look’s memes: “The one thing that I saw, which was so amazing—my son showed it to me—was my headpiece cooking Rihanna like an egg. Can I tell you something though? I never saw the headpiece as flames, I never saw it!”
