Sarah Jessica Parker is torturing the West Village

Sarah Jessica Parker is the quintessential New Yorker – she’s lived and worked there for years and is fiercely loyal to the place. Her most famous character, Sex and the City‘s “giant whore” Carrie Bradshaw, lived and loved the city, as well. So SJP decided to capitalize on both the nostalgia for her character and her love of New York when she staged an impromptu photoshoot in front of the house at 66 Perry Street, which was used for the exterior of Carrie’s brownstone on the show, to promote her new range of shoes. And uh… the owners were none too pleased about it.

From Page Six:

While the house owners agreed to let “SATC” use the facade as Carrie’s home for the show, they’ve since grown tired of the frenzied fan attention and want privacy. A source tells us, “The owners are up in arms as they deal with relentless tourists, and SJP has ignored their requests for an explanation on how she could endorse the shoot, even though ‘no trespassing’ signs are posted. SJP used their house during the years of filming, and now won’t acknowledge that she and her company used the steps and facade, this time without permission, to promote her shoe line.”

The owners of 66 Perry St. didn’t get back to us, but Gerald Banu, president of the Perry Street Association, told Page Six, “I heard about the shoot. They didn’t get the permission from the owner. The situation with ‘SATC’ visitors is still very intense. People who live here get upset that the sidewalks are constantly jammed.”

To be fair to both sides, I get that it’s probably annoying for the homeowners to have crowds of people around your house 24/7. But uh, newsflash, you allowed your house to be used on an HBO series – you kinda asked for it. People certainly shouldn’t be allowed to trespass on your personal property regardless, but they can gather on the sidewalk if they so choose and take pictures and you can’t really stop them. As for SJP, well, she’s a law unto herself and probably feels like it’s no big deal (she didn’t respond to calls for comment).

Chris Noth says ‘Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw was a whore

carrie big

I don’t think Chris Noth really understood what Sex and the City was actually about. In fact, he seems downright ignorant not only about the show and the characters on it, but about the world at large, since he thinks his character from the show, Big, was a super awesome guy while Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker, if you live under a rock) was “such a whore”. Yes, he actually said that.

From News.com.au:

Q.So you worried about being typecast, post-Sex and the City?

It’s funny, because even with The Good Wife people accuse me of always playing powerful men. But they’re flawed — Big was powerful because he had a lot of money and he seemed to have the upper hand in the relationship, but emotionally he was a wreck.

Actually, no: he was what he was. One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t. He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore! [laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.

I feel like I need to take a few moments to fully absorb this level of stupidity. Hahaha, women are whores! Men do no wrong! LOL!!

I don’t want to get deep and meaningful about an HBO series that ended almost 10 years ago, but let’s get real here: Big was no angel, and Carrie was far from a whore. But of course, men who do what Carrie did – date around, look for someone she actually clicked with and could be with forever, perhaps sleep with a few different people a year – are just being dudes! That’s what they do! Women? Whores, the lot of them! Fuck off, Chris Noth. Join the 21st century.

Sarah Jessica Parker can only work out for 22 minutes

sarah jessica parker

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!

Shots Fired! Sarah Jessica Parker Says Famous Women Are Rude Bitches!

sarah jessica parker 2

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!

Carrie Bradshaw Herself Is On Instagram

Sarah+Jessica+Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker, AKA Carrie Bradshaw (the original), is officially on Instagram, guys. She’s been taking lots of photos of things she found on the street, like this Elmo loofah:

elmo-sjp

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.

Stars Go Punk At The Met Gala: See The Best And Worst

anne hathaway met gala punk

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
