LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Sarah Jessica Parker’s Hollywood career has spanned over 20 years, with audiences watching her grow from an awkward teen on the 80’s sitcom “Square Pegs” to a fashionista in “Sex and The City” – a journey that the 45-year-old star said has come with its share of downsides.
“I don’t know what I can do about the aging,” the actress said with a laugh in ELLE‘s January 2011 issue.
“Yes, I am aging. Oh my God, I’m aging all the time,” she continued. “It’s like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?”
Sarah Jessica, who also took on the job of producer on her latest movie, “Sex and The City 2,” said the movie’s lukewarm critical praise was daunting.
“Anybody spending time not liking you is pretty awful,” she told the mag when asked about the movie’s reception from critics. “I’m just not good at not caring.”
Adding that co-stars Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall are “far more mature about [the critics] than I am… I’m like, ‘I let you down; I’m so worried’”
With a new position as President and Chief Creative Officer of fashion label Halston, a designer of its Halston Heritage collection and a new movie, “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” in the works – Sarah Jessica is far from slowing her career down – another complication in her busy life.
“Even now I think about [the separation], and it makes my stomach hurt,” she said of being away from her three children, 8-year-old son James Wilkie and 1-year-old twin daughters, Loretta and Tabitha, for work. “I think about my son waking up on his birthday without me there, and I could die.”
