The fact that Sarah Jessica Parker is getting older does not bother her one bit.
The 57-year-old actress who appeared in “Sex and the City” recently expressed her confusion to Allure by saying, “I just don’t understand why I’m supposed to be spending that much time thinking about it.”
“It’s not that I’m trying to be intentionally dismissive or that I’m living in a fantasy world. But I don’t really give it much thought. There has been a lot more chatter about my time spent on earth from people who are not directly involved than I have spent thinking about it myself.
This is especially true of SJP’s silver-streaked hair, which was the subject of much media attention during the previous summer after she was photographed dining al fresco in New York City.
She told the publication that ever since then, people have commented on how brave she is for having gray hair. “It became months and months of conversation about how brave I am for having gray hair.” “I was like, please please applaud the courage that someone else exhibited on something!”
Given that Parker was with her good friend Andy Cohen at the time that the photos were taken, the comments that she received were especially intriguing to consider.
Andy has a full head of gray hair that is very attractive. She was surprised that no one had mentioned him despite the fact that they were sitting right next to her. “Not a living thing.”
The host of “Watch What Happens Life,” who is 54 years old, came to his friend’s defense when the latter was accused of making “misogynistic” comments.
During an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” he stated that all of the articles that were written about Sarah Jessica Parker said things like “She’s going gray” and “She looks old,” and that it was “insane.”
What’s more, SJP doesn’t want to turn back the clock, even if she could do so without undergoing plastic surgery. She received similar comments about her “bravery” after an episode of “And Just Like That” in which her character, Carrie Bradshaw, visits a plastic surgeon’s office.
You may ask, “What’s the point? She told Allure that she “just…doesn’t care enough.” “When I walk out the door, I want to feel fine — according to the expectations I’ve set for myself… I am not completely devoid of vanity. I suppose it’s just that I don’t give enough consideration to what other people think.
That was more or less the point that Nakoya Yancey, the head of the hair department for “And Just Like That,” wanted to make with Miranda’s (Cynthia Nixon’s) silver bob on the show, according to Cynthia Nixon.
“She desired to accept her gray… to declare, “This is who I am,” to oneself. “Deal with it; it does not make me any less of a woman,” Yancey said earlier this year in an interview with Page Six Style.
She continued by saying, “I feel like those people are unrealistic,” in response to the “offensive” and “superficial” comments made about the core cast members. Everybody ages … It’s inevitable that your hair will turn gray; that’s just the way it is.
