Sarah Jessica Parker went functionality first walking a slightly less bundled up James Wilkie to school yesterday. It was business as usual for the mother-son duo, despite the sad news that Bitten went down with Steve & Barry's. That certainly doesn't mean less work for SJP, with her new TV show in the works and movies as always. As for the one movie everyone wants to hear about, Sarah Jessica recently talked more about the sequel and also life after removing her mole. Here are highlights:
- On the SATC movie: The one thing I regret is I never roamed around Manhattan and saw it [with the crowds]. I was too embarrassed about getting caught. I was afraid it would look like I was gloating. I do regret not seeing all those ladies — and some men — dressed up in their finery. But it was thrilling to hear about.
- On removing her mole: If I knew it was famous I never would have had it removed. My health is terrific. I never thought anybody had any emotional attachment to that mole. I certainly didn't. It was just one of those things where I had a couple weeks and I thought, "I can finally get that mole removed," like many people do. It was an incredibly slow news week . . . One woman said to me, "That's your signature!" I said, "That's my signature?! All these years of being worried about the work, I could have just counted on my mole?!"
To see what she has to say about James Wilkie seeing the movie and the possibility of a sequel just
- On James Wilkie seeing SATC: It's never even occurred to me to consider that. I guess I always assumed he'd never see it. The funny thing is when he says the title to me. Anytime I say I'm going to work he says, "Are you going to do 'Sex and the City'?" He sounds like a dead-end kid. I can't imagine him ever seeing it, but I guess one day it won't be terrifically horrible. Maybe he can show it to his wife on a date.
- On a sequel: We are talking about it. We've had very general conversations about the idea. That's the big hurdle: the idea. The studio is very enthusiastic, which is lovely and seductive. We're at the place where [writer/director] Michael [Patrick King] has a wealth of stories so now it's, "We think we have this story and how do we put this together and are we completely sure that it's the right thing to do?" That's challenging. I would do these forever but is it right for the audience? Is this the story that we can tell well? These are the questions I have to ask myself or I'm not being fair to the franchise. That's where we are.
