About Sarah Jessica Parker
Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker’s alter ego from Sex and the City, is renowned for her glitzy, avant-garde New York aesthetic. Intriguingly, Parker’s most notable role was that of the hopelessly uncool high school nerd in Square Pegs.
She is now a regular at Fashion Week, a megastar who has dated some of the most desirable men in high society, and the epitome of New York cool.
As Carrie Bradshaw on the worldwide hit Sex and the City, she transitioned from an outsider to a movie star and the pinnacle of fashion.
A Square Peg
Parker, who was born on March 25, 1965, in Nelsonville, Ohio, came from a truly Brady Bunch-like household; she had four full siblings and four half-siblings. Parker’s parents gave their children ballet and acting lessons, which quickly came in handy.
Parker and a few of her siblings received Broadway roles between 1976 and 1979, and the family relocated to New Jersey to be nearer to New York City’s hub of the entertainment industry and give Parker the chance to enroll in Manhattan’s Professional Children’s School.
After playing in a few theater productions, Parker landed Annie’s lead role on Broadway in 1979. Before getting one of the key parts in Square Pegs, a sitcom about two nerdy high school girls and their foolish attempts to fit in, Parker made a cameo appearance in the made-for-TV film My Body, My Child as a teenager in 1982.
The one season of the show was all that was required to give Sarah’s career the much-needed boost.
With a part in Somewhere Tomorrow in 1983 and roles in Footloose and Firstborn the following year, she made a successful transfer into the film industry. But according to Parker, she believed that her unattractive appearance had condemned her to a life as a character actress.
Even so, she managed to juggle a strong theater career while landing consistent film roles throughout the 1980s and 1990s, up until 1998, when her life took a dramatic change.
By 1998, Sarah had established a reputation for herself in Hollywood, but it was her return to television that ultimately catapulted her to fame.
Parker was cast in HBO’s Sex and the City opposite Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon as the stylish Carrie Bradshaw, a journalist who dished about sex, shoes, her best friends, and life as a single woman in New York, 16 years after her last appearance on television.
The program was feisty, inventive, and made every woman fall in love with Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo. It was based on a book and articles written by Candace Bushnell for the New York Star. Parker had earned an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in 2004 and three Golden Globes for Best Actress by the time it concluded in 2003.
She had also been able to shed her “square peg” reputation and transition into a sensual fashion star.
She returned to acting in 2005, but the box office didn’t welcome her with the same enthusiasm as the Home Box Office until she revived Carrie in the 2007 film Sex and the City.
Following its enormous popularity, the group came back together for Sex and the City 2, which came out in 2010 but wasn’t as well received by critics and moviegoers.
Unsavory men, bachelors, and children
Parker has a legendary love life to go along with her hectic acting career. Parker met and fell in love with her Firstborn co-star Robert Downey, Jr. while they were filming, and they soon moved in together. Unfortunately, Downey’s battle with drug and alcohol addiction was fairly public at the time, and their relationship ended in 1991, seven years later.
However, Parker soon recovered when she began filming Honeymoon in Vegas and engaged in an on-set liaison with her co-star Nicolas Cage.
She continued her hot run by briefly dating John F. Kennedy, Jr., one of the country’s most desirable bachelors. But the next year, in 1992, she struck it rich when she began dating Matthew Broderick, whom she later wed in 1997.
Although there have been allegations of problems in Parker and Broderick’s marriage, as with all Hollywood unions, they have remained together and have three children together: twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha, who were born in 2009 via surrogate, and a son, James Wilkie Broderick, who was born in 2002.
“I am a city person. I love concrete, I love architecture and I love the sound of cabs. I get uncomfortable if it’s too quiet. I find it unnerving and unsettling. I just wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
