Sarah Jessica Parker stopped by “The Late Show” to talk “Sex and the City 2” with David Letterman as part of her promotional whirlwind for the movie’s release. Though New York City has always been integral to the “Sex and the City” franchise, the girls filmed a significant part of the sequel in Morocco.
“We were in Morocco for almost two months,” Parker tells Letterman. “We were in Marrakesh, which is a very sophisticated, bustling, exciting, completely wonderfully foreign place. It’s a big city, I don’t know relative to the island of Manhattan, although I should have looked that up.”
Parker, who is married to Ferris Bueller (er… Matthew Broderick) also chatted about her son, James Wilkie, inheriting his “diminutiveness” from Broderick’s side of the family. “He’s not quite tiny. That’s on my husband’s side, that’s right,” she says.
Digging herself even deeper, she says, “Well, Matthew is average.” She quickly recovers, assuring the audience, “Not in personality! Let me clear this up, for the record. Not in personality, intellect, charisma, talent, genuine likeability… he’s average in height as I understand it.”
A celebrated icon in film and television as well as fashion, Sarah Jessica Parker continues to expand upon her impressive collection of credits through her remarkable range and effortless style.
