Actor Willie Garson loves every moment of filming hit show Sex And The City - because he gets to hang out with real-life pal Sarah Jessica Parker.

The hilarious TV hero plays CARRIE BRADSHAW's gay best friend STANFORD BLETCH in the cult show. And he admits their off-screen relationship is not all that different from the way they behave on set.

He says, "We've been dear friends for almost 20 years and she does like to talk, so it's kind of similar.

"But obviously I don't ask her about guys cos I'm not gay! We don't go shopping for clothes either! She gives me advice on girls instead."
