Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t afraid to share her real feelings.
The 52-year-old “Divorce” star appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with her longtime friend, Andy Cohen, on Wednesday night, and Cohen wasn’t afraid to ask her some of the tougher questions surrounding the recent “Sex and the City” drama.
Cohen asked what Parker thought of her former co-star Kim Cattrall’s comments to Piers Morgan about how she was never friends with any of her co-stars on the hit HBO series.
“Just heartbroken,” Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw in the series, admitted. “I mean that whole week, you and I spoke about it endlessly, because I was just, I don’t know, I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience.
“It’s sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience. It was a professional experience but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that that eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken. That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with it is such a privilege.”
The Bravo host also asked if Parker had considered killing Samantha Jones (Cattrall) off the show or having her character just be out of the picture, instead of trying to replace her.
“I think once everybody has thoroughly experienced the grieving process then Michael Patrick [King] can go back and sort of ponder what he might want to do and how he might want to proceed,” she said of the show’s creator. “That’s the most clear answer I’ve given yet!”
Cohen auditioned for the role during Wednesday’s show, donning a blonde wig and reading a particularly racy scene with Parker.
“I’m willing to go on the record and say you’re more suited certainly than Stephen Colbert. And I don’t know that Ellen [DeGeneres]’s actually interested. In fact, she might have passed,” she said of the two talk show hosts that she’s previously offered the part to. “So the part by default is yours!”
Cohen also brought up the possibility of Sharon Stone taking on the role of Samantha, to which Parker replied, “You’re not the first person that said it. I think it’s a really interesting idea, yeah.”
Parker was much less optimistic about the possibility of a third “SATC “movie when speaking with ET’s Nancy O’Dell at the Golden Globes. Watch the exclusive clip below to see what she said.
