Just Like That The star Sarah Jessica Parker She reveals five facts about herself that her fans may not be aware of, such as how she dreams to run a small business.
‘I Grew Up Poor’
“I remember my childhood as Dickensian,’’ recalls Sarah Jessica, 58. “We didn’t have electricity sometimes. We didn’t have Christmases sometimes…or the phone company would call and say, ‘We’re shutting your phones off.’ ” Still, Sarah Jessica always had lots of love, in addition to access to the arts. “We went to the theater and the ballet and the opera because all of that was free.”
‘I Wanted to be a Ballerina’
“I still wish that I could have become a ballet dancer,” says the actress, who studied at New York City’s School of American Ballet. “I don’t have any regrets, because I made the right choices for me, but I do wish I’d kept it up because it’s still my favorite thing.”
‘I Almost Turned Down ‘Sex and the City’
Sarah Jessica was almost willing to pass on her most prestigious role as sex-columnist Carrie Bradshaw because she enjoyed the flexibility of movies and theatre. She’s glad she changed her mind. “I’m very proud of it,” she says.
