Andy Cohen defends Sarah Jessica Parker over gray hair

What a hairy situation.

Andy Cohen defended Sarah Jessica Parker against “misogynistic” comments about the 56-year-old actress’ gray hair after photos of her dining with the Bravo grandma went viral.

“We were at lunch and there was a paparazzi and she’s sitting next to me with white hair,” Cohen, 53, said on “The Drew Barrymore Show” Thursday, referring to her own gray hair. “All the articles were ‘Sarah Jessica Parker, she’s getting gray’ and ‘She looks old,’ and it was insane.”

He continued: “Here she is sitting next to me, who is gray, and people just missed the target completely. It was so misogynistic.”

Cohen went on to hype Parker’s upcoming “Sex and the City” revival, “And Just Like That …”, saying it would be “quite revolutionary” by showing “beautiful women” living “alive” in 50s, which he thinks is “a wonderful message.”

Parker opened up about aging in the spotlight as a woman in her December Vogue front page, saying, “It almost feels like people do not want us to be completely okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy that we being hurt by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if it makes you feel better. ”

Cohen is simply the latest in the chorus of people who have defended Parker to embrace an au naturel look that follows in the footsteps of model Paulina Porizkova.

“I’ve seen pictures of Sarah Jessica Parker in the media, and every time I think ‘oh thank you, thank you!’ One at my age who looks like me, “Porizkova, 56, wrote recently on Instagram.” I see my lines and hang and silver roots mirrored, and I love it. “
