SJP’s first time gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan, say what? We couldn’t believe it either, but it’s definitely one that Carrie Bradshaw would approve of. (And Kim Kardashian too, given the sexy cleavage shot.)
In the accompanying article, Sarah Jessica Parker talks about the fact that people are still fired up over her alleged Sex and the City 3 rumor on Instagram back in May. “Oh my god,” she says, “When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I’m not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there’s no movie?” Sorry fans, there really is no third movie in the works.
Parker is also passionate about having access to proper healthcare in America. “The thing that would change people’s lives maybe more than anything, assuming that we maintain access to health care, is child care,” she says. “If I could guarantee every mother who is working two, three jobs that she had good child care that didn’t make her anxious all day—people would probably work in more efficient ways.”
And she touts being a humanist instead of a feminist, as she believes it would create a stronger force. “I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles,” said Parker. “People of color, gays, lesbians, and transgenders who are carving out this space. I’m not spitting in the face or being lazy about what still needs to be done—but I don’t think it’s just women anymore. We would be so enormously powerful if it were a humanist movement.”
With this being her first Cosmopolitan cover, she’s definitely covering some serious ground. Check out her behind the scenes cover shoot video below.
