Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't typically respond to negative comments directed to her Twitter account, but the actress explains why one post last month prompted her to lash out.
"I see mean stuff every day: when I look at Twitter I scroll with one eye open and one closed. That particular day, it was just one of the things I saw," the star explains of a tweet which questioned the parentage of her 4-year-old twin daughters Marion and Tabitha (who were born via surrogate).
"I kept scrolling and then I was like, 'Wait a minute, did she just say that?' the Sex and the City actress recalls.
"I went back and I thought, 'Well, this isn't unhealthy paranoia, this is absolutely conscious. This was a choice. She, not subtly at all, said that my children are not my children.'"
The 49-year-old says she'll never understand why people choose to target her with hateful messages.
"What is it about me? I am not somebody who shows off her good fortune; I don't travel with bodyguards, I don't live a very glamorous life — I am afraid of all that," she tells fashion magazine, The Edit.
"I can't figure out what she [the Twitter user] hated so much about me that she did that. And I just can't imagine anything lower than that."
In the interview, the fashion icon, who recently launched her own line of shoes and handbags, also talks about how hard she finds the world of fashion design to be.
"My heart goes out to designers," the 49-year-old shares. "The expectations, the demands they put on themselves. They put everything on the line."
She also briefly mentions close designer friend, L'Wren Scott, who committed suicide last March.
"I feel so sad about L'Wren. I have friends who struggle for no good reason; incredibly talented people who have to fight for attention."
