Sarah Jessica Parker Didn't Know She Could Be A Producer Until 'Sex and the City'!

Sarah Jessica Parker is all smiles while striking a pose at the #BlogHer19 Creators Summit held at Brooklyn Expo Center on Wednesday (September 18) in New York City.

The 54-year-old actress took the stage to introduce her latest business venture – a wine partnership with Invivo Wines – and opened up about how a career-changing conversation with Sex and the City creator Darren Star led her behind the camera of the hit HBO show.

“He said, ‘You should be a producer,’ I said, ‘I don’t know anything, I’ve never produced television’ and he said, ‘Then just learn… for the first year, just come to all the production meetings and just learn,” Sarah recalled (via PageSix).

From there, Sarah came on as a producer at the start of Season 2 in 1999: “I think that working so closely with [fellow producer] Michael Patrick King, you just learn the business of producing, which involves numbers and budgets and unions and interpersonal relationships and complicated people and easy people,” she said. “You learn because it’s exciting, there’s a lot at stake [and] you’re invested”

Earlier that same day, Sarah Jessica Parker dished about teaming up with her husband, Matthew Broderick, for the revival of Neil Simon‘s comedy play Plaza Suite on Today.
