“There is so much misogynistic talk in response to us who would never do it. Happens. About. A. Man,” she says. “‘Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair? ‘ I do not know what to tell you! Especially on social media. Everyone has something to say. “She has too many wrinkles, she does not have enough wrinkles.” It almost feels like people do not want us to be completely okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy that we are being bothered by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not see perfect look or if you do something if it makes you feel better. I know what I look like. I have no choice. What should I do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?”
In the feature, Parker also opens up about the conversations she had with “Sex and the City” producer Michael Patrick King about reviving the show. “And we talked about what we were missing in the pandemic: joy, community, the experience of being together,” she said. “The world of Carries and her friends has always been about coming home, and I felt we needed it right now.”

In addition, Parker shares her grief over co-star Willie Garson’s recent death, who played Carrie’s BFF Stanford Blatch and outside the camera had been her close friend for decades. “All I can say right now is that it’s like a scoop has been taken out of me this week and I do not expect it to be filled,” she said. “Over time, my body will get used to this new architecture, but now I feel really blue. It’s such a loss and I’m thinking about how I’ll miss the joy of it [our relationship]. I think about Willie and the show and how much we laughed. And I think after all, that’s the headline: There’s so much good in the world, and we were all so lucky to be together and do something we loved. “
