At first glance, Sarah Jessica Parker’s life seems pretty good. She’s getting plenty of work, her side hustles are so successful they could almost be considered main hustles, and her personal life is best described as consistent. People like her! She’s the star one of my favorite Christmas movies! She’s the face of one of my favorite memes! But I have a sinking feeling that, deep down, she’s miserable. Why? Because no one will stop asking her about Sex and the City 3.
While promoting her HBO series Divorce on her pal Andy Cohen’s show Wednesday night, Parker fielded several questions about the oft-discussed theoretical sequel—most of which were centered around the re-casting of Samantha Jones, whose original performer, Kim Cattrall, has officially declined to participate. When asked about Cattrall’s recent interview with Piers Morgan (during which she said Parker “could have been nicer,” and that she was “never friends” with her SATC castmates), Parker said:
“[I felt] just heartbroken. That whole week... I found it really upsetting. That’s not the way I recall our experience. So, it’s sad, but... I always think that what ties us together is this singular experience. I was a professional experience, but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives. I’m hoping that that sort of eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken... That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with is such a privilege.”
Later, Cohen “auditioned” for the role of Samantha—just as Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert have done in recent weeks. Though Parker said he was the best candidate thus far, Cohen suggested someone else: Sharon Stone. “You’re not the first person to [suggest her],” Parker said sort of dismissively. “I think it’s a really interesting idea, yeah.”
When Cohen suggested that they just kill her off (Jones, I mean), Parker delivered a response that—despite sounding meticulously rehearsed—was entirely unclear.
“I think once everybody has thoroughly experienced the grieving process, then Michael Patrick [King] can go back and ponder what he might want to do and how he might want to proceed. That’s the most clear answer I’ve given yet.”
Can we expect a sequel? Is anyone actively working on it? Is Jones going to be dead? Will they all be dead? There are still no answers, but you’d better believe there will always be more questions.
