Sarah Jessica Parker Admits She’s “Radically Different” From Her ‘Sex and the City’ Character Carrie Bradshaw

More than 10 years after Sex and the City went off the air, Sarah Jessica Parker is still reminding her fans that she and her character, Carrie Bradshaw, are NOT the same person.

“People probably don’t realize that Carrie Bradshaw was radically different from who I was, who I continue to be,” the 50-year-old actress said in a new interview with the Wall Street Journal.

“I think that sometimes because we look alike and live in the same city and haunt the same neighborhoods, that it was sort of like I was playing in the sandbox, when in truth it took real work every day to be her, to understand her, to not judge her,” Sarah Jessica continued.

“I love the process of becoming somebody else, but the work to become so, and to be convincing, is still very challenging,” she added of playing Carrie on the hit HBO show — which aired from 1994 until 2004 — and in two SATC movies.
