SJP said she gets upset when she can't help people who look to her for dating advice as if she were really her TV character Carrie. She said:

"Sometimes on the street I get the feeling people are disappointed with me because I don't have answers for them. I have to remind them that I don't have a Ph. D. in sex or counseling. I'm an actress. I wonder if George Clooney is better prepared to talk about surgeries because of ER? No!"

I guess it makes sense when you look at it that way. Here she is at the CN Traveler event from the other night.
