We'll get to the kiddies in a second, but can we just say how thrilled we are that Sarah Jessica Parker is not only admitting that a third Sex & The City movie is in the works, but also that she's given serious thought to it. That shows some loyalty. Bravo!
This Parade has an extensive interview with the momma/actress about how she juggles her three kids and her career. It's obviously not a simple task, but its one SJP takes a lot of pride in.
Here are some of the HIGHlights from her interview:
On James Wilkie wanting to be an actor and eager to start auditioning: “I don’t want him to do it until after he goes to college: But part of me thinks maybe it’s better if he knows the truth now about how hard it is to be a working actor. I don’t know that he grasps what it took to get us here.”
On the difficulty of balancing career and motherhood: “We’ve had two occasions recently where both Matthew and I were working, and it was so hard on the kids. Especially James Wilkie, because he can really articulate how he feels about our absence. On the other hand, there are big chunks of time when we’re home a lot more than conventionally working parents. So you hope to make up for it.”
On fraternal twins Loretta and Tabitha: “They’re talking, they’re running, they need me. Loretta is deeply inquisitive: ‘Do you see that, do you hear that, Mama?’ She constantly checks that we are connecting with her.” Her sister is the family princess: “Tabitha does not give; she receives.”
On using babysitters, but not live-in help: “We love closing the door and having the only people in the house be our three children and us. It’s such a good feeling to know that we’re competent and capable and that it’s private."
On any chance for a third Sex and the City movie: “There is. I know what the story is. It’s a small story, but I think it should be told. The question is, what’s the right time to tell it?”
The right time … is now!
NOW! NOW! NOW!
