Sarah Jessica's Surgery Pressure

11 November 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sarah Jessica Parker is famed for her stunning looks - but even she feels pressured to have plastic surgery. The 38-year-old Sex And The City star admits Hollywood's obsession with youth gets her down, because so many other actresses are altering their looks to stay young. She fumes, "I've had no plastic surgery. I've had no Botox, no collagen, nothing, no. I have lines. If the rest of my peers weren't doing it, I wouldn't think about it. But it's a little hard to sit in a room with people who are younger and older than me and none of them have any lines. It's an epidemic. You go to an awards ceremony, or to the movies, or watch television and all you see is a mask. Women's foreheads, and now men's foreheads, do not move." »

Rifle Association Fires at Celebrities

27 October 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Britney Spears, Michelle Pfeiffer, Russell Simmons, Harvey Weinstein and Jerry Seinfeld are facing boycotts for their stance against guns. America's National Rifle Association (NRA) has compiled a 19 page list of "enemies" of the Constitution, naming celebrities, corporations, religious groups, non-profit groups, writers, journalists and sports teams - and listed them on its website so members can boycott them. But NRA chief executive Wayne Lapierre stresses to New York website Page Six, "The list is not a blacklist. We got calls from our members wanting to know which celebrities and corporations opposed the Second Amendment... Our members don't want to support them." »

Parker Fuels Nose Job Reports

28 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City actress Sarah Jessica Parker has almost certainly undergone surgery to reshape her nose, according to a top cosmetic consultant. Recent photos of the TV star indicate she's made a "subtle" change to her face, because the bump on the bridge of her nose appears to have been removed, according to British showbiz magazine Heat. British-based cosmetic expert Jan Stanek says, "It's almost impossible to say that Sarah Jessica hasn't had any work done. This looks like a classic choice that so many Hollywood stars opt for, something subtle in order not to attract too much attention. If you look at the sides of Sarah's nose, you can see that her bump looks like it's been reduced slightly and the end of her nose looks less bulbous. The procedure for doing this would be slightly simpler as all you need to do is shave some of the bone off the nose as opposed to reconstructing the entire thing." »

'Sex and the City' Star Heads for London

26 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker is relocating to London for six months - to support husband Matthew Broderick's stage career. The sassy actress - who will say goodbye to character Carrie Bradshaw next year - will leave her native New York with her husband and baby son James Wilke. Ferris Bueller's Day Off star Broderick is bringing his family to the UK so he can reprise his role in Broadway smash The Producers on the West End stage. And savvy producers are already trying to persuade Parker to join the production as the main love interest. The last time the husband and wife team appeared on stage together was in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying - the show was a Broadway hit. A source says if she accepts the part, "It will put Sarah at the top of the list for the part when they make the movie of the musical." »

The Real Life Friends of 'Sex and the City'

20 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Willie Garson loves every moment of filming hit show Sex And The City - because he gets to hang out with real-life pal Sarah Jessica Parker. The hilarious TV hero plays Carrie Bradshaw's gay best friend Stanford Bletch in the cult show. And he admits their off-screen relationship is not all that different from the way they behave on set. He says, "We've been dear friends for almost 20 years and she does like to talk, so it's kind of similar. But obviously I don't ask her about guys `cos I'm not gay! We don't go shopping for clothes either! She gives me advice on girls instead." »

Duchovny: No Sex in the City

15 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor David Duchovny promises fans will be shocked when they see him in hit TV show Sex And The City - because he keeps his clothes on and stays away from sex. The former X-Files star, 43, plays an old flame of Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie in an upcoming episode of the show - but there won't be as much action as fans of the racy series are accustomed to. Duchovny explains, "I play a high school boyfriend who comes back into Carrie's life. We rekindle, but I'm harboring a secret that complicates everything. I keep lots of clothes on! They were shooting a sex scene with Kim Cattrall while I was there. I didn't get jealous of that guy. Those scenes are embarrassing - especially as you get older, if you know what I'm saying." »

Matthew Broderick Keen To Play Janitor in 'Sex and the City'

10 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sarah Jessica Parker has admitted actor husband Matthew Broderick would happily take on a cameo role in her show Sex And The City - but only if he can play a janitor. The actor, who shot to fame with Ferris Bueller's Day Off, may be disappointed though - his fashion conscious wife doesn't think the show's producer, Michael Patrick King, will allow it. Sarah explains, "I think it would be really nice for (Matthew) to play a part before it's all over. But he says the only part he wants to play is a janitor. In fact, he's been asking for four years to play a janitor! But Michael Patrick won't let him." »

Sarah Jessica Parker on Motherhood

10 June 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker is finding motherhood rewarding yet challenging. The petite actress gave birth to baby James Last October and like any other parent, sees her free time slipping away from her. She says, "I don't think there's enough time. Days will pass and I haven't had a chance to have a shower, like on weekends. I have a child and his needs are simply more important and that's a wonderful burden and I love it." And despite her international status as a fashion plate, Sarah has had to alter her wardrobe somewhat. She says, "There are simply things that I don't feel 'ready to wear'... Get it? So one must consider these things." She also doesn't want other new mothers to feel intimidated by how quickly she got back into shape following the pregnancy, adding, "I was forced to get in shape. I had a clock ticking and I just did the best I could. I'm sort of reluctant to talk about how I got back into shape because there's a standard that's realistic and unrealistic to me. I am lucky that I have money for child care and access to private work-out sessions." »

Cattrall Gets Through with Samantha's Help

28 May 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Kim Cattrall is surviving a painful divorce with the help of her Sex And The City character. The 46-year-old beauty, who plays sex-mad Samantha Jones in the Sarah Jessica Parker comedy show, recently split from husband Mark Levinson. And although she admits she's lost "the dream of spending your life with Someone," Kim's keeping her spirits up - with the help of her TV persona. She says, "We both agreed, as adults, that we needed to go our separate ways. It was the death of our union. But you survive, and there are other people out there who I find interesting. As difficult as some decisions are in life, you do it ultimately to better yourself and your love life, and I'm feeling pretty good. I'm exploring being single and trying to find fulfillment. Thankfully I have this amazing character, Samantha, behind me. She helps me get through it in a way I don't think I could as Kim. I was too nervous before. Now I'm more outrageous - I'm really enjoying it." »

Hollywood Trio Sue Over Ads

10 April 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood heavyweights Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Denzel Washington are suing an electronics firm for allegedly using their images in newspaper advertisements without permission. The actors - whose pictures were reportedly used by Fry Electronics without proper authority - are seeking $10 million each in damages. The lawsuit - filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court - claims the ads could diminish their "hard-earned and well-deserved reputations as major motion picture stars and risks the potential for overexposure." It also says the photos ran in the Los Angeles Times and other major newspapers. Representatives of Fry's - which has its headquarters in San Jose, California, and stores in Texas, Arizona and Oregon - did not immediately return calls for comment. Similar lawsuits involving unauthorized uses of celebrities in advertising were filed recently against cosmetics chain Sephora USA by superstar couple Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker, and the divorced actors Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. »

D'Works staging 'Akimbo' feature

8 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

DreamWorks Pictures has acquired the feature film rights to David Lindsay-Abaire's off-Broadway play Kimberly Akimbo. The David Petrarca-directed play, which debuted Jan. 14, wrapped its run at the Manhattan Theatre Company on Sunday. Set in suburban New Jersey, Akimbo tells the story of a teenager with a rare condition that causes her body to age faster than it should. When her family moves away from their town under dubious circumstances, Kimberly is forced to re-evaluate her life while juggling a hypochondriac mother, a drunk father, a dishonest aunt, her own mortality and the possibility of first love. Marylouise Burke, John Gallagher Jr., Ana Gasteyer, Jodie Markell and Jake Weber starred in the stage production. Lindsay-Abaire will adapt for the big screen. Steven Spielberg recently saw the play in New York and moved to acquire the film rights. He is not attached to direct or produce, but he will have a hand in the project's development. Production executive Leah Keith will also oversee. Lindsay-Abaire is repped by the Gersh Agency and attorney Nancy Rose. He previously penned the theater works Fuddy Meers and Wonder of the World, starring Sarah Jessica Parker. Akimbo premiered two years ago at the South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, Calif. »

The hunky star has confirmed he will appear sporadically in the final series of the show. »

Sarah Jessica Parker's Pregnancy Woes

24 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker was determined not to bring the hit TV comedy series to a halt while she was pregnant - but admits it was a tough challenge. Program chiefs coped with her changed appearance by making her character Carrie balloon in weight to disguise the bump. Filming was also postponed for the fifth series from last spring to the summer to allow Parker, 37, time to recover from morning sickness. She says, "At first I didn't want anyone to think I couldn't do it. I didn't want my life to impose on my creativity. I was reticent at first. I wanted to be heroic. I didn't want to show any signs of fatigue, but the truth of the matter is, in 90 degrees weather, you want to sit down more. So the truth is, I sat down more often." »

Matthew Broderick and his wife Sarah Jessica Parker managed to silence the paparazzi when they left hospital with their newborn son - by threatening to leave if they woke the baby. The couple's baby, James Wilke, arrived into the world at New York's Lennox Hill Hospital on October 28. And when the proud first-time parents left the hospital and were greeted by hordes of photographers, they calmly hushed the screaming media members, fearing their offspring would wake up. Broderick recalls, "We said, 'If everybody makes noise, we're gonna get in the car, so be nice and quiet.' And they listened!" »

Sue and the City

21 January 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are suing the same cosmetics giant that upset Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Sex and the City's Parker and former brat-pack actor Broderick are filing a $15 million lawsuit against Sephora claiming they have been the victims of "false representation", according to Britain's Daily Sport newspaper. The couple are upset that their names and photograph have been used by the company to "reap millions of dollars" of free publicity. They allege that Sephora used their "highly valuable" names and images to fool customers into thinking they were endorsing the products. But the acting duo claim they never gave their consent for their photo to appear in the company's brochure, nor do they endorse the perfumes mentioned. Similarly, last September Cruise and Kidman joined forces to file a $15 million lawsuit, accusing the American firm of using a photo of them together in brochures, as part of its 2001 advertising campaign, without their consent. »
