Sarah Jessica Parker has always been an incredibly fit, incredibly thin woman – attribute it to good genes and/or her ballet background, but she never really struggled with her weight, that’s for sure. However, we shouldn’t equate thinness with fitness (or love of fitness, maybe?) because turns out, she can’t stand working out.
From E! News:
You may think SJP spends hours upon hours in the gym, but the 49-year-old admitted to an audience during the Cannes Lion film festival that isn’t the case.
“I work out for a sum total of 22 minutes, because that’s all I can bear,” she revealed.
Now, we’d hardly say a consistent, 22-minute a day workout is lazy. Clearly she’s getting in some quality workout time, because the results show. And we can totally relate to working out in short, manageable bursts.
LOL, I love the editorial commentary there. The results show? Yes, the results of having good genes and an incredibly small frame her entire life definitely show. Of course, I don’t know SJP and would never say she puts no effort into her body whatsoever, but something tells me it’s not a daily struggle…
No shade, of course – I think SJP is great!

Okay, so she didn’t quite go that far because she doesn’t actually use foul language that’s not scripted apparently, but Sarah Jessica Parker did say that famous women are “pretty unfriendly” to each other. Of course that’s the case – Hollywood is hard as shit, especially for women, so it forces them to be cut-throat and yes, unfriendly. That’s not an excuse and doesn’t make it acceptable, but it certainly means it’s not at all surprising.
Here’s what SJP told Harper’s Bazaar:
“I think so much reality television – and the women that dominate culture today – are pretty unfriendly towards one another. They use language that’s really objectionable and cruel and not supportive.”
“I like to remember that Carrie and the other women in Sex and the City were really nice to each other. That was the bigger picture.”
I mean, she comes off as a bit sanctimonious here, but I can sorta vouch for her niceness. Many years ago – probably in ’03 or so – I was up at Barnard on the Columbia campus, and SJP used to take little (at the time) James Wilkie to this child play group or something that was hosted there. Before the kids came out, she and the other mothers would sit in this student centery type thing, just chatting and relaxing on the couches there.
Anyhow, one day I came in from the pouring down rain (had no umbrella) and SJP actually got up from her seat and got me a cup of coffee. Pretty kind, if you ask me. I’m partial to her because of that, but I use “objectionable and cruel” language on the daily, so she probably wouldn’t like me very much!

Captioned: “Tempted to pick him up and bring him home. But quickly imagined and hoped for its rightful owner re-tracing steps to a reunion.”
Her profile photo appears to be a closeup of her eye. SJP, you so MySpace ’08. Love it. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before she follows Gwyneth.
Being on Instagram is the most interesting thing she’s done since her most recent MET Gala outfit. Enjoy, SJP! I like the Amaro filter the best.

Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.
BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller
WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.
PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY: Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway

3Sarah Jessica Parker Needs to Get Over ‘The Carrie Diaries’, Says ‘Sex and the City’ Writer Candace Bushnell
Sarah Jessica Parker hasn’t been shy about her dismay over the Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries. While she doesn’t mind the young actress who plays a younger version of her famous Carrie Bradshaw character, AnnaSophia Robb, she just seems rather perplexed about why such a show was necessary in the first place. I’m sorta with her on that, in theory, but the show – what little I’ve seen of it, anyway – is kind of fun in a really mindless way.
In any case, Sex and the City writer/creator Candace Bushnell has hit back at SJP, basically telling her to get over it and that she had no future with the series herself, anyway, since she’s 47 now. Ohhhh, snap.
From The Daily Beast:
“The reality is, that’s showbiz. Sarah Jessica’s first part was somebody else’s part. She played Annie on Broadway. She understands how these things work.
Look, Sarah Jessica Parker is 47. I think with the second movie, Carrie Bradshaw couldn’t be an ingenue anymore. But I think they were stuck doing what the audience wanted. Realistically, a middle-aged woman who was married without children would be much more focused on her career and less focused on this Mr. Big: “Does he love me?” … “Does he still not love me?” I mean, I think it was coming to the end of what they could do with the character.”
I mean, true that and all. No one cares about any of that shit anymore. Sex and the City was great for its time and was really great and all, but there’s such a thing as ending on a high note. The Carrie Diaries really was the only chance to make the show appeal to a new generation – because let’s face it, it’s really for 13-year-olds and they’re a bit young for the real, adult deal (which hopefully they’ll watch anyway out of interest as they get older). I do understand SJP’s going to feel territorial, but Candace is right – that’s showbiz, kids!
