Sarah Jessica Parker has said that a third Sex and the City movie is “fairly nearby.”

Sarah Jessica Parker has shared her own crazy ‘Sex and the City’ fan theory, in which Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are just made up characters in Carrie’s head.

Parker is back on HBO, but her new show ‘Divorce’ is distinctly different from ‘Sex and the City’.
Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to TV in October, with new HBO series ‘Divorce’. The series follows Frances, a wife and mother who falls out of love with her husband and is looking for a fresh start. But according to Parker, Frances is unlike any character the actress has played before, especially Carrie Bradshaw.
Sarah Jessica Parker's new character isn't anything like Carrie Bradshaw
Speaking to TV critics in Beverly Hills Saturday, Parker said: “From the moment I read the pilot, I thought Frances was her own person. She was so distinct from not only Carrie, but any other character I have ever played.”
Check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming show.
Sarah Jessica Parker is set to star in a brand new comedy drama entitled 'Divorce', with the 10-episode first season set to hit HBO this Fall according to the newly released teaser trailer. The actress shared a taste of the new show on her social media accounts.
Sarah Jessica Parker to star in HBO original series 'Divorce'
'Divorce' marks Parker's first return to HBO since 'Sex And The City' ended 12 years ago. Created by British filmmaker Sharon Horgan ('Catastrophe'), with the first episode directed by Jesse Peretz ('Girls'), the show co-stars the Oscar nominated Thomas Haden Church, as well as Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam.

Star said he thinks the show ‘betrayed what it was about’ by having Carrie and Big end up together.
‘Sex and the City’ creator Darren Star has been speaking about how the series ended, with Carrie Bradshaw ultimately ending up with her longtime on-again-off-again love Mr Big. Star said that he felt ‘betrayed’ by the decision to have the couple end up together, feeling that by the finale it had just turned into another romantic comedy.
Sarah Jessica Parker played Carrie Bradshaw on ‘Sex And The City’.
"For me, in a way – and I didn't [write] those last episodes – if you're empowering other people to write and produce your show, you can't ... say certain things,” Star said during an interview with Kindle Singles.
The 2010 sequel was widely panned, but it did make a lot of money at the box office.
Sarah Jessica Parker showed that she really does have a great sense of humour during a recent appearance on Funny Or Die's 'Billy On The Street'. Chatting with host Billy Eichner on the streets of New York City, Parker spoke about the criticisms directed towards 2010 movie Sex And The City 2, which was widely panned by critics.
Sarah Jessica Parker has spoken about criticisms of SATC 2.
'When it came out it had a lot of criticism,' Billy said to Parker. 'That's what I understand. I didn't read it, but I gleaned from the look on people's faces,' the actress replied. 'I never understood it, I swear,' Billy continued.

Sarah looks set to play a journalist once again, but it’s far removed from ‘Sex and the City’.
The last time we saw Sarah Jessica Parker on the small screen she was wearing Manolos and chasing Mr Big. But a decade on from the end of ‘Sex and the City’, Sarah could be set to make a return to television. Deadline is reporting that the actress is attached to a new project, a true crime drama entitled ‘Busted’. But what do we know so far about Sarah’s rumoured TV return?
Is Sarah Jessica Parker headed back to the small screen?
1. This is not 'Sex and the City'

We've had the tour of Sarah Jessica Parker's New York home and there's more than a few Carrie Bradshaw similarities
Sarah Jessica Parker is Carrie Bradshaw. Ok maybe they’re not totally the same person, but the actress and the famous character she played are inextricably linked forever in our minds. Every time Sarah finds herself on a red carpet you hear things like ‘Sarah wearing a very Carrie-esque dress ’ or ’what would Carrie Bradshaw make of Sarah’s fashion choice?’ We just can't get away from the comparisons. Which brings us to Sarah’s latest interview, Vogue’s 5 minute quick-fire walk through of her New York townhouse. So is Sarah, Carrie? Well this recent insight has left us drawing comparisons all over again.
Sarah Jessica Parker invited us and Vogue into her New York townhouse
Firstly Sarah’s house is beautiful, it’s impeccably decorated and has a wonderful old worldly, vintage feel. Actually, it’s miles away from the apartment she nearly bought with Mr Big in the ‘Sex and the City’ movie. The real life Parker digs are little more what you’d image Carrie would have had if she’d married Aidan. It’s also pretty full of everything from globes to baseballs and lots and lots of books. You can easily spot what might be a few touches from her husband Matthew Broderick (ping pong table!) We’re going to say cluttered chic, but of course this is meant in the most complimentary way possible.
The NY native shared a few details in a rapid-fire interview for Vogue.
Pay attention everyone, because Sarah Jessica Parker is doing things again. She’s not releasing any shoe collections this time, but the tour she recently gave Vogue of her New York townhouse is just as exciting. Obviously, it’s an East Village townhouse, so it would be great, whoever was hosting, but Parker just adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the whole thing.
SJP shows off that infamous style in her own home.

Sarah Jessica Parker's collection consists of 30 pairs of shoes, bags and even a trench coat.
In news that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, Sarah Jessica Parker launches her new line of shoes tomorrow. The Sex & the City star has teamed up with Nordstrom and George Malkemus to launch SJP. It’s been a long time in the making. It’s been 10 years since Sex & The City and Parker’s creative relationship with Malkemus goes back even further, but SJP had good reasons for taking her time.
It took a while, but SJP finally launches this Friday.
"I won't sell a shoe to someone that isn't well-made or timeless. I feel honor-bound to a large group of women. I am overly cognizant and aware that I would not have this opportunity if it were not for the commitment those women made to me over the years," Parker told USA Today "I have no interest in selling them a bill of goods or convincing them to buy something I would not wear myself."

Michael Patrick King hints there may be a Sex and the City 3 movie on the way. After the second SATC movie flopped do you think this is a good idea?
Sex and the City executive producer, Michael Patrick King, has hinted that there may be another movie in the pipelines. HBO’s hugely successful series Sex and the City ran between 1998 and 2004 and practically defined, and revolutionised, an entire generation of women. Who didn’t live vicariously through Samantha's sex life, or start believing that men really can change when Big finally came through in the end?
Will the girls be returning for a third Sex and the City movie?
Fans of the show felt that they knew Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda intimately (in every sense of the word) when the show concluded in 2004, and you’ll still hear ‘the girls’ used in reference today, a decade after the show finished.

50 Cent was among the famous faces that were snapped at the New York City Ballet 2013 Fall Gala held at the David H. Koch Theatre. 'Sex and the City' star Sarah Jessica Parker and Victoria's Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes with her husband Sunnery James were also spotted, with Doutzen opting out of a dress and donning high-waisted trousers and a sheer black shirt.
'Sex and the City' star Sarah Jessica Parker is seen taking photos on her camera as she arrives at the New York City Ballet 2013 Fall Gala held at the David H. Koch Theatre. She poses on the red carpet alongside fashion designers Prabal Gurung and Olivier Theysken who both worked on the floor-length pink gown she's wearing; Gurung designed the almost-sweetheart neckline, corseted top half, while Theysken created the satin skirt.
Finally, Sarah Jessica Parker is designing shoes. It had to happen eventually.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Manolo Blahnik – a match made in TV heaven – is about to come to life. We all remember Carrie Bradshaw’s pink frilly stilettos, but the real-life collection the star is going to create with the brand won’t be quite as extravagant. Parker will be working with Manolo CEO George Malkemus to launch the line, which will have, above all, variety. "In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me because of Carrie Bradshaw," Parker told Vogue.com, referencing the shoe-obsessed character she played for six years on Sex and the City." Indeed, Parker’s latest venture comes as no surprise to anyone. In fact, with Sex and the City having wrapped nearly a decade ago (What two movies? We don’t know what you’re talking about and will maintain this story) the only question is, what took them so long?
As for the shoes themselves, the line will contain mostly simple pumps and flats. The most impressive thing about the pieces, according to SJP will be the color combinations used. "We're putting new colors together that people don't typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet," Parker told Vogue.com.
The different pairs will run between $200 and $300, available exclusively at Nordstrom early next year. And shoes aren’t the only pieces that the actress and Malkemus are designing together. Apparently bags are next: "And in terms of bags, thinking about the period of the seventies into the eighties, what those women were carrying, taking away the bells and the whistles and hardware and really making it about the bag."
The actress is going into the fashion business
Sarah Jessica Parker is best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw, and Carrie Bradshaw, despite being written as a strong, female character, is best known for her love of shoes. So it’s fitting that Parker is starting a line of shoes.
"In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me because of Carrie Bradshaw," Parker told Vogue.com. "Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes," Parker added. "And by default I learned an enormous amount. It's hard to walk away from that." Pumps and flats – We’re reliably informed they’re called - will cost between $200 and $300, and will be available exclusively at Nordstrom early next year. Bags will cost under $700. That’s under, in case you thought they were really expensive or anything. "We're putting new colors together that people don't typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet," Parker explained. "And in terms of bags, thinking about the period of the seventies into the eighties, what those women were carrying, taking away the bells and the whistles and hardware and really making it about the bag."
She might know about shoes, but her little son doesn't!

Tilda Swinton now has her own Tumblr page, dedicated to her latest piece of art.
Modern art fans, movie buffs and hipsters alike flocked down to the Museum of Modern Art in New York this week to see Scottish actress Tilda Swinton sleeping in a big glass box. Her piece 'The Maybe' - originally devised in collaboration with Cornelia Parker - sees Swinton in a state of slumber while museum visitors and culture critics stare at her, and it's all in the name of art.
A furious and largely predictable debate has erupted as to whether Tilda Swinton sleeping in a box can be considered art, though - let's face it - all New Yorkers really care about is that Tilda Swinton, star of Burn After Reading, We Need To Talk About Kevin and Moonrise Kingdom is sleeping in a box. Swinton-mania is reaching boiling point and with news that the actress will only feature in the exhibition 'occasionally' - there's now a dedicated Tumblr dedicated to answering the question of the minute, "Is Tilda Swinton Sleeping In A Box?" The answer today is, "Yes. Tilda Swinton is sleeping in a box today at MoMA. It's art."
According to People magazine, Swinton has had her fair share of celebrity visitors, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick and James Franco, though not everyone is impressed. The New York magazine's Jerry Saltz was seething at the fact that - even in today's uncertain times for the arts - the museum is overcrowded. "Visiting there now is unpleasant because the museum has been so overcrowded since its 2004 makeover. The event also has inner content: MoMA is narcissistically puffing its celebrity feathers, playing at being avant-garde." Perhaps sticking Tilda Swinton in a glass box now-and-again will encourage those who wouldn't normally trek out to the museum to stop by, and, who knows, take a look at the other non-Tilda Swinton work while they're at it.

Sarah Jessica Parker not 100% convinced by Sex And The City Spin-Off
Sarah Jessica Parker made her name as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City, which, after 6 successful seasons, came back in the form of two poorly received films. So what does SJP think of the latest reboot of the franchise: The Carrie Diaries?
Well she thinks AnnaSophia Robb – who plays a young Carrie - is “lovely,” but she’s “not sure” how she feels about the series. “You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity,” Parker said. “[AnnaSophia] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about, but it’s… odd.” ‘Odd’ isn’t perhaps what the people behind Diaries wanted to here. We doubt it anyway. SJP was talking in an interview with luxury shopping site Net-A-Porter.com’s online magazine The Edit. It’s probably for the best that Jessica-Parker isn’t actually involved with the series any more, as it sounds like her bust lifestyle over the past decade has damaged her, physically.
Is it time for all things Sex and The City to stop?
Continue reading: Sarah Jessica Parker “Not Sure” About The Carrie Diaries
The Hollywood glitterati must have wondered why they’d bothered to turn up for the BAFTAs at the Royal Opera House in London on Sunday night (February 10, 2013). On a frankly dismal evening in the nation’s capital, umbrellas were commonplace on the red-carpet with publicists, media types and event organisers running around like headless chickens, hastily attempting to give the press pack their photographs without drowning the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Chastain and Helen Mirren in the cold British rain and sleet. Best pals George Clooney and Ben Affleck were seen taking shelter under the same umbrella, while actress Gemma Arterton looked absolutely freezing as she waited for up-and-coming star Juno Temple to finish working it for the cameras.
In terms of awards, it was a relatively straight-forward evening, hosted with typical panache by everyone’s favourite Briton, Stephen Fry. Ang Lee’s Life of Pi performed strongly in the technical categories – as it is expected to do at the Oscars later this month – while Skyfall won Best British Film. However, it was Ben Affleck’s Argo that took the evening’s key prize – that of Best Picture – leaving Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln to settle for Best Actor, for the peerless Daniel Day-Lewis. Best Actress went to the 85-year-old Emmanuelle Riva, which left Jennifer Lawrence and Silver Linings Playbook director David O’Russell looking quite frankly bemused.
New teen drama 'The Carrie Diaries' received mixed reviews after airing on Monday night (January 14th 2013) on CW with critics calling the show 'bland' and 'inept'.
The series was made as a prequel to 'Sex And The City' looking into the teenage life of Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker in SATC) in the '80s in Connecticut. Young Carrie is played by AnnaSophia Robb who appeared alongside Johnny Depp in the 2005 adaptation of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. However, many critics have slammed the show for a number of different reasons. Matthew Gilbert from The Boston Globe called it 'somewhat bland' before knocking the appearance of the actress in comparison to Sarah Jessica Parker. 'She's not as small and angular, and she has a softer temperament', he said. 'I spent too much time during the premiere trying to morph Robb into Parker in my mind's eye.' Matt Zoller Seitz from The Vulture was even more cold about the show. 'The characters are bland', he said before calling it 'an inept spin off that dishonours its source' and accusing it of 'wanting to cash in on 'Sex and the City'.
The slightly warmer reviews came from Robert Lloyd at the LA Times. 'The situations are stock - John Hughes wrote this playbook pretty thoroughly - and the dialogue does not exactly crackle', he said, while Tim Goodman from The Hollywood Reporter said: 'It's kind of quaint and far less cynical than 'Gossip Girl''.
You'd think both of the Sex And The City movies were fair warning: stop trying to make money out of the franchise, it'll never be as good as the series and it's getting embarrassing. Do they listen? You know the answer to that.
Now, tonight in fact, the SATC prequel will be on televisions, telling the story of the show's lead Carrie Bradshaw, as she makes her journey from Connecticut to Manhattan due to the death of her mother. "This is a younger Carrie. I mean, we're first meeting Carrie in 1984, and she's 16, so she's just getting introduced to New York and her first love and fashion, and she's really finding herself as a writer and trying to find her voice," star AnnaSophia Robb told MTV News at the series' red-carpet premiere in October. Author Candace Bushnell, says it's difficult to compare the prequel to the main show. "I never know how to answer that question," Bushnell said when asked to do just that. "Both Carries are really close to me."
"I just really tried to capture being a teenager in a small town, and although your life is perfectly fine, for some reason you want more," she continued. "You want to see the world, and you really want to experience the world. And the Carrie in 'Sex and the City' had that dream, but she's experiencing it, and she's gotten there, whereas the Carrie in 'The Carrie Diaries' is just trying to figure out how to get there."
Among the celebrity guests at Cosmo's 100 Power Lunch in New York City were 'Charmed' star Rose McGowan, CBS' 'This Morning' anchor Gayle King, the world's oldest model Carmen Dell'Orefice, fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg and 'Sex And The City' star Sarah Jessica Parker. The lunch was hosted by Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles at Michael's restaurant which was closed especially for the prestigious occasion.
Sex and the City was, for many, the defining show for women of the late '90s and early noughties, leaving a legacy that has continued into two enormous movies within the last eight years. Now, to capitalise on that enormous success, and to draw an entirely new cohort of Carrie Bradshaw fans, the CW have commissioned a prequel series called The Carrie Diaries, aimed at teenagers rather than women, and set in 1984 with a loose aim of laying down the foundations of Carrie's love of fashion, men and Manhattan.
The trailer for this new series was released over the weekend (27th Oct 2012). Despite the clip seeming to give away a huge variety of potential spoilers for the series (in fact, it may just be the whole first episode squeezed into 3 minutes) there are elements of promise. To round up: a young Carrie Bradshaw returns to high school after a summer spent grieving for her mother. A new boy, handsome and interested in Carrie arrives at school, and her friends divulge that they've lost their virginity. Carrie's father, worried about her welfare and trying to keep her busy, organises and internship for her in Manhattan where she meets someone in the publishing business- Larissa- who gives her her business card. Exciting!
Certainly, its doubtful that those of us that love Sex and the City will also love The Carrie Diaries- the target demographic is just far too different, and it doesn't seem to be quite capturing the glamour, extravagance and sex-appeal that was captivating about Bradshaw and her friends. However, there is promise and it seems likely that it will be a mixture of Clueless and Ugly Betty- no bad thing. The Carrie Diaries will begin airing in January 2013 and will be starring AnnaSophia Robb, who you may recognise from 2005's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and 2007's Bridge to Terabithia.
The Fashion Group International's 29th annual Night Of Stars event at Cipriani Wall Street saw numerous glamorous guests including 'The Help' star Viola Davis with her husband Julius Tennon, 'Sex and the City' star Sarah Jessica Parker, 'Bridget Jones's Diary' actress Renee Zellweger and 'Saturday Night Live' writer Seth Meyers with his girlfriend Alexi Ashe.

Alanis Morissette made a cameo as a lesbian in a 1999 episode of 'Sex and the City' and had to kiss Sarah Jessica Parker, although she admits that it wasn't as interesting as she wanted.
Alanis Morissette expressed disappointment during an on-screen kiss with Sarah Jessica Parker. The couple kissed as part of an episode of 'Sex and the City' in 1999, in which Morissette played a lesbian. The 34-year-old actress has appeared in multiple shows like 'Nip/Tuck' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' before making a cameo in 'Sex and the City'.
During the episode 'Boy, Girl, Boy Girl', Morrissette had to kiss Carrie Bradshaw - the character played by Parker. However, Morrissete has now admitted that the steamy scene wasn't as thrilling as one might think. Morrisette explained: "I kissed Sarah Jessica Parker. I played a lesbian in 'Sex and the City' and I had to kiss her. I have experimented with same-sex relationships in my life, but it wasn't about enjoyment with Sarah Jessica. Her character was supposed to be reluctant about getting involved, so it wasn't a passionate kiss - it was a reticent one, which is the reason I didn't enjoy it."
As columnist/author Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) prepares to move in with her longtime beau Mr. Big (Chris Noth), her three fabulous friends are facing their own unique issues. Samantha (Kim Cattrall), after five years in California with her soap actor boy toy (Jason Lewis), is getting antsy for her old stomping grounds... and sexual ways. Miranda's (Cynthia Nixon) husband Steve (David Eigenberg) has been feeling unloved, and his actions drive a wedge in their marriage. And Charlotte (Kristin Davis) loves being a wife and mother. When a suddenly-planned wedding goes awry, Carrie hires Manhattan newbie Louise (Jennifer Hudson) to help sort out her life. Turns out, it's harder to find love than any one of these modern gals previously imagined.

Rambling through its first 30 minutes with no real direction, The First Wives Club eventually turns into a story about three old friends who want to exact vengeance on their wayward ex-husbands. Elise (Hawn) is an aging movie star, obsessed, as most aging movie stars are, about her looks. Brenda (Midler) is a bitter ex-housewife who loves her son and bemoans her lack of funds to support him -- and hasn't changed her hair since 1969. Annie (Keaton) is basically a middle-aged version of Annie Hall, only now she has a lesbian daughter and an intrusive mother, and Woody Allen is nowhere to be seen.

Even among different denominations of Jewish religion, Hasidism stands alone, a religion of minorities among minorities. The invaluable quality of this film is that it neither critiques nor praises the Hasidic religion. For a subject matter as extreme and uncompromising as the religion itself, A Life Apart is wonderfully even-handed. Throughout the film, which starts and concludes with an exuberant wedding ceremony underlying the significance of ritual for the Hasidic community, we dig into the mystic philosophy behind the Hasidic refusal to participate in the contemporary world.
