No More Romance For Sarah Jessica Parker?
SARAH JESSICA PARKER is hoping to change Hollywood stereotypes of placing twenty and thirtysomething actresses in romantic roles. Following the demise of her show SEX AND THE CITY in 2004, the 40-year-old actress has played the romantic lead in two box office hits, THE FAMILY STONE and FAILURE TO LAUNCH. And while Parker admits she is often sent scripts for younger roles, she hopes she can convince producers to consider fortysomething females in the same parts. She says, "I read the script the other day and I said to my agent, 'I'm too old for this part now.' I knew it as soon as I read the description. "But it was such a nice thing that I knew it, that I wasn't still trying to cling to something that never really applied to me anyway. It's so much better to know the truth and be surrounded by people who will say, 'You know what, you're probably right', than a bunch of people who will let you live in delusion. "The truth is, you can't stop the clock."
