Everyone’s favorite Sex and the City shoe lady is the August cover girl for Cosmopolitan magazine. Sarah Jessica Parker graces the cover and talks SATC 3, Met Gala memes and politics.
As if rumors weren’t already swirling about a third SATC movie, Parker raised even more suspicion when she posted a photo on Instagram with a Bloomingdales bag with a mysterious caption.
Clearing the air, Parker said to Cosmopolitan, “Oh my god. When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I’m not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there’s no movie? I’m still finding people and being like, ‘No @BoobityBopBeep! Why would I hurt you?’ I’ve never been a mean girl.”
The mother of 3 was just promoting her shoe line, SJP and their new venture with the Bloomingdales company. Sorry, SATC fans. And though people were being mean to her about her Met Gala headpiece, Parker just laughed it off.
“The one thing [meme] that I saw, which was so amazing — my son showed it to me — was my headpiece cooking Rihanna like an egg. Can I tell you something though? I never saw the headpiece as flames, I never saw it!”
The 50-year-old actress believes in equality for women, but also for every body. She refers to herself as a humanist, rather than a feminist. “I’m enormously appreciative of the work that my mother’s generation did. We are the beneficiaries of a lot of disappointment, heartache, discouragement, and misunderstanding,” she told the magazine.
She goes on, “but I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles. People of color, gays, lesbians, and transgenders who are carving out this space. I’m not spitting in the face or being lazy about what still needs to be done — but I don’t think it’s just women anymore. We would be so enormously powerful if it were a humanist movement.”
Girl’s got a point.
She goes on to talk about some political issues, like health care and child care. You can head Cosmo’s website to see more of a sneak peak, or for the full interview, you can grab your copy of Cosmopolitan on newsstands July 14.
