Sarah Jessica Parker Thinks Women Are Too Mean To Each Other
Sarah Jessica Parker thinks women have become to mean to one another. The former Sex and the City star discusses the problem in the April issue of British Harper’s Bazaar where she calls the years of Sex and the City “a more innocent time.”
Sarah explains, “I think so much reality television — and the women that dominate culture today — are pretty unfriendly towards one another. They use language that’s really objectionable and cruel and not supportive. I like to remember that Carrie and the other women in Sex and the City were really nice to each other.” The 48-year-old goes on to say, “She was a really good friend. That’s why women can forgive those very apparent flaws and selfishnesses. She was a deeply devoted friend, and I think women really respond to that kind of connection. I think we all want it, we all work towards having it, and we’re not always the very best friends we can be.”
- Parker also believes that the internet is to blame for propagating some of that meanness. She tells the magazine, “I don’t Google myself. Good God, no! I have absolutely no constitution for that. I’m curious about everything, except what people have to say about me. It’s the random cruelty I really don’t understand. It’s not good for us. I don’t know, you know, how we go back in time to a better place.”
