Harry Potter trained the media to stay pretty mum about Sex and the City: The Movie, so I’ve been stewing over this bit I found in this interview with Sarah Jessica Parker:
But some of her scenes in the film were difficult to handle as well, because before it ends, Carrie is plunged into a life crisis far more intense than anything in the television series. Parker was unprepared for the personal stress these sequences caused her.
“The harder stuff, the emotional stuff Carrie has never experienced before, was just very painful,” she admits. “It was surprisingly upsetting. But it was the role of a lifetime – I wouldn’t have run from it. I ran toward it completely, but it was very sad to see this happen to her. I was so proud and shocked and relieved that a studio let us tell that story. But it wasn’t easy.”
Screenwriter Michael Patrick King swears all the rumors of a death are untrue.
SJP can’t be talking about some trauma with Big, because she got plenty of practice breaking up or getting dumped by him during the series.
Is she just being melodramatic? Or could she at last be sprouting a family and a past that comes back to haunt her in a horrible way?
The movie premieres in New York tonight and opens all over Europe tomorrow, but American fans must wait until Friday to have this burning question answered.
Then once it is, what will I do with the rest of my summer?
