Sarah Jessica Parker defends herself against “misogynistic chatter”.

Sarah Jessica Parker is slipping back into her cult role of Carrie Bradshaw for the sequel to “Sex and the City.” She – like SJP herself – has of course gotten older, which is causing an uproar among some fans. The leading actress now defended herself publicly.

"There is so much misogynistic gossip in reaction to us. That would never happen to a man", said Sarah Jessica Parker to the US"Vogue." One topic had been her gray hair. Especially hard is the criticism in the social media. "Everyone has something to say: she has too many wrinkles, she doesn’t have enough wrinkles." She knows what she looks like, the 56-year-old continued. "I have no choice. What am I supposed to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?"

Parker plays relationship columnist Carrie Bradshaw in the cult series about New York women and their adventures in love (from 1998 to 2004). In January, streaming service HBO Max had announced "And Just Like That…" remake – starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, with only Kim Cattrall missing from the original female cast. With Chris Noth, David Eigenberg and Evan Handler, the film ehemists of the three main characters are also in the revival. In addition, there are many new faces. The series is intended to illuminate the lives of the three friends over 50. Ten half-hour episodes are planned.
