Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals Dumb Reason She’s Not A Feminist

sarah jessica parker

I feel like Sarah Jessica Parker is one of those people that really does mean well, but when she speaks, she doesn’t really think about what she’s saying and it comes out as one big clusterfuck. She’s a smart(-ish) woman, and seemingly a kind one, and yet sometimes she comes off as so incredibly clueless that I don’t even know where to begin. Her latest commentary on why she’s not a feminist in the new issue of Cosmopolitan hits a particularly clueless note, but let’s let her have her say, shall we?

“I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles,” Parker explained. “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.”

“The thing that would change people’s lives maybe more than anything, assuming that we maintain access to health care, is child care. If I could guarantee every mother who is working two, three jobs that she had good child care that didn’t make her anxious all day—people would probably work in more efficient ways,” Parker said.

The Sex and the City icon added, ” How many times do you hear a wealthy person get asked, ‘How do you do it all?’ If I’m asked that question one more time … I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me? Ask someone who looks like she’s about to drop, How are you doing? How are you managing?’”

Well, wouldn’t it all be so precious if the world was a planet full of beautiful rainbows where things like racism, sexism, and homophobia didn’t exist, a “humanist movement” would be great. But until all humans are regarded equally and start on the same playing field, she needs to get a damn grip.

Also, why is it that so many people are so terrified of a damn term. You can be a feminist AND other things. It’s not exclusive and it doesn’t need to be your whole identity. You can be a feminist and an ally to the LBGT community and to people of colour all in one! It’s really possible!

Ugh, people.

Is ‘Sex And The City 3′ Actually Happening?

sex and the city 3

It’s always sad when people just can’t leave well enough alone, isn’t it? The first Sex and the City movie was a bit strange, but it was nice to see Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte again since we were all such big fans of the series. Then they made the second one and things went VERY rapidly downhill. The insane racism and just… ridiculousness was too much to bear, and I think everyone was grateful when the sequel left theatres and we could all just forget it ever happened. But there’s been chatter here and there about the possibility of a third movie… and it just might be happening, it seems. At least if Sarah Jessica Parker is anyone to go by.

SJP posted the above photo to her Instagram account this week, adding the following caption:

Well. I guess the cat’s out of the (little brown) bag.
As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able.
I’m under a strict gag order until then.
Xx, Sj
Oh, snap! That has to mean SATC is coming back again, right?! Well, not if you listen to E!’s Marc Malkin, who tweeted this not long after chatter began:


Never have I been more grateful for E!

The Met Gala Brought Out Some Strange Fashion – PHOTOS

sarah jessica parker

Last night was the annual event we all look forward to more than any other for its sheer ridiculousness: The Met Gala. This year’s theme for the Costume Institute Benefit Gala was ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’, and the results were… mixed. Some people totally got into the obscene gaudiness of it all, as you can tell with our good old friend Sarah Jessica Parker above. She truly embraced the spirit of the Met Gala, so we have to applaud her for that… even if her ensemble is God awful. Worse than Rihanna‘s? That’s debatable.

The fashion was worth examining more closely, either way.  It should go without saying that behind the cut, things get SUPER image heavy, so if you’re on a slow connection (does that even exist anymore?), proceed with caution.

Sarah Jessica Parker is not here for Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks seems to be on a Charm World Tour lately, since he’s turning up on all the talk shows lately trying to prove that he’s still a Totally Cool Guy. Sure, Tom thanks Tom is awesome, but does anyone else? Perhaps, but I know one person who doesn’t, and that’s Sarah Jessica Parker.

It’s unclear what Tom was going on about at Madison Square Garden earlier this week, but what is 100% crystal clear is that SJP was not feeling it. She gives him the most stank ass look you could possibly imagine and I absolutely love it. There’s nothing else to this story, but I just want you to take a moment to bask in this glory:

What do you think Tom was talking about?

Sarah Jessica Parker is torturing the West Village

sarah jessica parker

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!
