Sex and The City star Sarah Jessica Parker wishes she had spent more time choosing her wedding dress. The former 51-year-old star is known for her bold fashion choices, and wore a black Morgane Le Fay dress with spaghetti straps and tiered skirt when she married actor Matthew Broderick in a surprise ceremony held in New York City in 1997.
But the actress shared in an interview with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live!” that she wishes she had spent more time researching dresses and hadn’t gone bridal shopping on such as whim, reported Entertainment Tonight.
“Oh, I wish it was… I just was too embarrassed to spend any time looking for a wedding dress. There was a store that I liked that I knew, and I just went and got whatever they had hanging.”
Sarah Jessica Parker is launching a publishing imprint. The 51-year-old actress will serve as the editorial director of SJP for Hogarth and will help to edit and publish three to four novels a year, according to the New York Times.
“I have always loved to read for the same reason I love to act, which is that other people’s stories are more interesting to me than my own,” she said.
Parker famously played a writer in her hit HBO series and her character, Carrie Bradshaw, was obsessed with the smell of old books.
She said she is the same way in real life and it is part of what draws her to reading. “People have tried to bottle the smell of old books, but it’s the most elusive thing, like trying to recreate a great story. You can’t, which is what makes it special.”
Parker said her new venture is an ode to her poet and journalist father and retired nursery school teacher mother, who is also an avid reader. She also revealed she chose to work with the Hogarth publishing house because it was founded by writers Virginia and Leonard Woolf in 1917.
