Regardless of her level of fame or her passion for fashion, SJP wants everyone to know she’s just like us — and she never wanted to be famous!
In the September issue of Marie Claire, Sarah Jessica Parker may look totally glam in gorgeous get-ups — but she insists she’s just a normal person and she was never after the fame. “I never wanted to be a celebrity; I never wanted to be famous. And in my daily life, I work really hard to not trade on it in any way,” she said.
“I am so desperately worried about anybody saying, ‘She cut in line’ or ‘She took our table’ or She got out of jury duty’ or ‘She doesn’t do her own grocery shopping.’ The things that bother me are counter to who I am and the way I live. It’s not like it’s hard to be decent and respectful and well-behaved. I do wait in line, and I do take the subway, and I do do my own grocery shopping, and I do take the kids to school.”
Even though she’s in the spotlight, she still gets upset when the press portrays her in a negative light. In fact, she was still upset that Page Six accused her of not wanting to serve jury duty. “For Page Six to be so cavalier – I was so outraged by the character assassination! I have served so many times, I was asked to come speak at Jury Appreciation Day! I expect I should be more calloused by now, but I am so sensitive about not ever living up to anybody’s worst idea about an actor who is well-known.”
Considering we often see SJP strolling the streets of NYC, running errands and taking care of her children we definitely think she’s totally down to Earth! Do you agree?
