Sarah Jessica Parker (born March 25th, 1965) is an American actress and producer, with a portfolio of television, film and theatre performances. She is best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw, on the hit TV show Sex and the City.
Performing Career: As a young girl, Sarah Jessica Parker trained in singing and ballet, soon being cast in the Broadway production of The Innocents.
She and four siblings appeared in a revival of The Sound of Music, and Parker went on to the new Broadway musical Annie - first in the small role of "July" and then in the lead role, playing the role for a year.
In 1982, Sarah Jessica Parker was cast as the co-lead of the sitcom Square Pegs. The show lasted only one season before being cancelled, but Parker's performance was critically well-received. In the three years that followed, she was cast in four films - the most significant of those being Footloose in 1984 and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, co-starring Helen Hunt, in 1985.
In 1986, Parker appeared in the cult classic Flight of the Navigator, a Disney science fiction film.
By the early 1990s, Parker's career was gaining momentum. She appeared in L.A. Story, Honeymoon in Vegas, co-starring Nicolas Cage, Hocus Pocus and opposite Johnny Depp in the critically acclaimed movie Ed Wood.
Before the year 2000, Sarah Jessica Parker would later go on to feature in Miami Rhapsody, Mars Attacks!, The First Wives Club, The Substance of Fire and Til There Was You.
Sex and the City: In 1998, Sarah Jessica Parker landed a role on the TV show which would become an instant hit, seeing her profile soar overnight.
In 2004, Parker won an Emmy award for her lead role as Carrie Bradshaw (after five consecutive losses).
After Sex and the City ended in 2004, many thought rumours of a film would never leave fan sites and gossip columns, but in 2008, the film would be released and a sequel is potentially in the works.
Personal life: Parker was romantically involved with actor Robert Downey Jr. from 1984 until 1991. They met on the set of Firstborn.
On May 19th, 1997, she married actor Matthew Broderick.
The couple's first child, son James Wilkie Broderick, was born on October 28th, 2002. He was named after Broderick's father, the actor James Broderick. His middle name is that of author Wilkie Collins, an author Broderick and Parker admire.
E! News confirms that prior to her appearance at the 2008 Major League Baseball All-Star, she had her signature mole removed. Regardless of photographic evidence, she denied it had been removed.
The third movie's script was rumoured to be a good one - but it's not happening
There can have been no trilogy more contentious than that of Sex And The City 3 which - after much-hype and speculation - was unequivocally scrapped earlier this year. After the project was abandoned, rumours of a feud between two of its top stars - Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall - were rife.
The fab foursome will not be returning for a third film
Now, reported leaks of the script have surfaced providing another suggestion as to why the third movie was abandoned - the death of pivotal character, Mr Big, causing Kim, who played sex-mad PR boss, Samantha Jones, to want to pull out.

Parker was asked about her 'SATC' castmate's bid to oust Andrew Cuomo.
As if there needed to be more speculation that things might not be all rosy between the former stars of ‘Sex and the City’, Sarah Jessica Parker offered up a potentially awkward future moment by sounding extremely non-committal in endorsing her ex-colleague Cynthia Nixon’s run for political office.
Last week, Nixon made headlines by announcing that she would be running against Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo for the New York governorship in September’s primaries.
While that immediately drew a massive show of support from her ‘Sex and the City’ castmate Kristin Davis, however, Sarah Jessica Parker stopped short of a glowing endorsement in a new interview.

Parker, who famously does not film nude scenes, recalled how film producers tried to pressurise her into taking her clothes off for a film role, before her agent stepped in.
Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed how she was left “sobbing” after filmmakers once tried to force her to film a nude scene, before her agent stepped in to stop it.
The 52 year old ‘Sex and the City’ star has famously refused to engage in nude scenes throughout her career, but recalled in a new interview with People magazine that she was once very nearly coerced into filming one before her agent – a male – intervened to stop it from going ahead.
It comes in the context of the momentous sexual harassment scandals that have dominated the news over the last four months after the dozens of allegations of abuse and harassment levelled against Harvey Weinstein.

The former 'Sex and the City' colleagues have been widely reported to have fallen out, both now and during the filming of the original series.
They’ve been widely reported to have been at each other’s throats by the media in recent weeks, but Sarah Jessica Parker has said that all talk of a feud between her and former ‘Sex and the City’ colleague Kim Cattrall has been “completely fabricated”.
Parker, 52, who played newspaper columnist and fashionista Carrie Bradshaw in the hugely successful series, insisted in a new interview that she never spoke badly about Cattrall, after the actress said that she didn’t want to portray her character of Samantha Jones in a putative third movie.
“I never talked about it, except [to say] that some of us were disappointed [about the movie not happening],” Parker told People this week. She also said that she remained silent after Cattrall’s interview with Piers Morgan’s ‘Life Stories’ interview recently, in which the discussion turned to Parker’s reaction to speculation that Cattrall would pull out of further participation in the ‘SATC’ franchise.

The third Sex and the City film has been given a firm no by the actress
Despite fan favourite Sex and the City sashaying off our screens well over a decade ago, drama, rumour and speculation continue to surround the ladies involved. After a hugely successful TV run, an enjoyable first film and a less-than-impressive second film, the possibility of a third film has been shut down completely.
Kim Cattrall said she has never wanted to be part of Sex and the City 3
Kim Cattrall - who played sexy Samantha Jones on the HBO show - has come out to deny that she had ever suggested she was willing to be involved with SATC3.

Bad news, Sex and the City fans – there will not be a third movie. At least, that’s according to one of its stars, Sarah Jessica Parker.
52 year old Parker, who plays the sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw in the popular TV series-turned-movie franchise, spoke to Extra on Thursday (September 28th) and definitively squashed the recent rumours that there would be a third Sex and the City movie.

The star confesses to buying from thrift stores in her early years.
She might be decked in designer labels nowadays, but Sarah Jessica Parker isn't afraid of reflecting on her younger days as an eager thrift store shopper. She couldn't afford the sort of wardrobe she has now when she was just starting out as an actress, but she sure did the best that she could.
Sarah Jessica Parker used to be thrifty with fashion
For anyone who wants to be as stylish as the former 'Sex and the City' star, she has some valuable advice for you. That is: go thrift shopping. Everyone knows thrift stores are a great place to pick up bargains, even if some people are put off by the idea of buying clothes that have already been worn in by a stranger.

Parker initially felt that the role would tie her down for too many years in one place, according to a colleague.
Playing Carrie Bradshaw was the role that made her world famous, but Sarah Jessica Parker was apparently very reluctant to take on her ‘Sex And The City’ part initially.
In a column for Playbill magazine on Wednesday (August 26th), actor Seth Rudesky, who worked with the 50 year old actress and her husband Matthew Broderick at a Broadway event, revealed that Parker “completely wanted to get out of it” when she learned that ‘SATC’ had been picked up by HBO.

Sarah Jessica Parker is still apologising to anger fans for posting an Instagram picture which fuelled ‘Sex and the City 3’ rumours.
Sex And The City fans were overjoyed when Sarah Jessica Parker posted a cryptic Instagram photograph with a caption which everyone, desperate for any glimmer of hope for a third movie, took to mean Sex and the City 3 was in the works. It wasn’t and, as far as we know, isn’t. SJP has been paying for her slip up ever since and has been forced to apologise to SATC fans on numerous occasions.
