The lovely Sarah Jessica Parker graces the cover and pages of Harper’s Bazaar March 2009 issue and says the economy now is very scary. I know so many people who have lost jobs, are losing jobs, husbands who have lost jobs. I can’t imagine going shopping. And that her Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw would probably end up in a hospital. Perhaps she would go back to her ’80s stuff and start bringing it out again.
Here are excerpts from the Harper’s Bazaar interview:
On what she can’t live without: My son! My husband! Food! Oh, fashion? I don’t know. A good bra?
After wearing black to wed Matthew Broderick, what would she’d wear to renew her vows: I’d wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn that day. James Wilkie’s teacher is getting married, and he said, Do you think she will be wearing black? I said, No! I can almost assure you. Then he said, Do you still regret it? and I said, Yes, I still regret it.
Her advice for surviving modern celebrity: Don’t surround yourself with bodyguards and SUVs, and return everything you are loaned in the shape in which you received it. Return jewelry, return bags, clean out the bags!
On not watching Gossip Girl: Are the characters sexually active? I hear it’s pretty sophisticated, the content. Is there any concern over the impression that it’s making on young women? I’m not asking in condemnation, but I’m just curious.
