Sarah Jessica Parker: SATC Ladies Getting Better with Age

Updated

The women of Sex and the City may be getting older, but they’ve “never been better,” according to the movie s star Sarah Jessica Parker.

The 45-year-old actress reprises her role as writer Carrie Bradshaw in the sequel, due out in theaters May 27. She and costars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall – who play Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha – didn’t need to act like they were having fun on the set. They really were having fun.

“We four women, despite I guess what a lot of people hope, have never been better,” Parker tells Vogue in its May issue. “This movie – and maybe it’s because we actually lived together – it was the best! We were together all day long, at night, in restaurants, in our hotels. It was wonderful.”

It doesn’t matter that the characters, like the actresses, are aging. They approach getting older the same way they approach everything else: with humor.

“Samantha was always the older lady, so she’s 52 now and talks a lot about what comes with that – including menopause – says Parker.

Despite being such a superstar, Parker finds a way to be a normal wife (to actor Matthew Broderick) and mother (to son James, 7, and 10-month-old twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta).

“We painted our patio furniture ourselves I make my children’s food myself,” she says. “We do a lot ourselves! We do our own grocery shopping I do my laundry.”
