Sarah Jessica Parker Reacts To Carrie Diaries: Does The Original Carrie Approve?

| Filed under: TV NewsSarah Jessica ParkerSex & The City

Carrie Diaries SJP AnnaSophia

They always say it’s hard to beat the original.

And that is heightened when the show and character are so beloved as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City.

But now, AnnaSophia Robb has started her attempt at filling Sarah Jessica Parker’s Manolo Blahniks with the premiere of Carrie Diaries last night.

While she’ll never be enough for some, it seems she has received the ultimate compliment.

AnnaSophia revealed how SJP recently gave her the seal of approval in taking on the name she made famous. She shared:

“She sent me a very lovely note kind of giving me her blessing and encouraging me and saying how dear the part was for her.”

How totes sweet!

We love that SJP is fully supporting the new series since it’s so very hard to take a project like that on.

But what did you think? Did it live up to expectations or leave you craving a SATC marathon?

    ASR is very cute, very attractive
    and SJP is by all accounts a rather homely looking woman with a large nose,some would say a horse face
    So how can the writers explain, the cute attractive young woman, turning into the older nasty looking woman ???
    Will there be an car accident, where her face is disigured?

    The show was okay. I'm sure I'll get better though…I hope. I thought they would have hired an actress that would look a little more like SJP.

    Isn't SJP doing the voice overs on this? If so, I would take that as 'support.'

    Wow I can't believe how mean and disgusting people are. Must have pretty pathetic lives. That being said I love SJP and if I ever see you losers on the street you'll be sorry. Pigs.

    I just ignore the haters, esp. men who diss SJP's looks. So what. She is Jewish, has a large nose. Not every woman fits into the small, pixie featured facial features of Aryan Supremacist beauty standards promoted every day and down the throats of men and self-conscious women. Even pure "white" Caucasian women can have large noses. Big deal. I have seen plenty of women who have larger facial features who are attractive and beautiful. Mr. Pete, you might think SJP has a horse face, but can you please post pics of your face so we can make judgments on you? The funny part is that usually, most men who dissect "ugly" women and criticize their looks, are usually fat, balding and ugly themselves or just plainly, homely men. So what gives. They are in no position to be judging "beauty". And for the most part, most straight men turn into fat, nasty dogs as they get older, which no Playboy model would f**k (unless they had money). LOL
