Look, it's no secret Hollywood is sexist AF, just ask Sarah Jessica Parker! It breaks my heart that so many strong, amazing, powerful women have been reduced to matronly roles as they age, while men only get better roles with time.

Do you know who else is sick of this double standard? Our girl, SJP. The actress has had a lot of things to say about the way Hollywood treats women over 50, including the fascination people have with her gray locks.

Sarah Jessica Parker is thriving right now — as she should be.

Her fashion collaborations are doing amazing, and her Sex and the City reboot show And Just Like That has been signed on for a second season.

SJP is having the comeback of the century.

Of course, a fair about of time has passed since fans met Carrie Bradshaw for the first time.

At 57 years old, SJP has embraced her age and is eager to fight back against sexist comments about her looks, most notably, her gray hair.

SPOILER ALERT: WOMEN GET GRAY HAIR JUST LIKE ME, EXCEPT THEY DON'T GET TO BE CALLED "SILVER FOXES" — they just get called OLD!

Last summer, the "Sex and the City" alum's hair got a lot of attention after pics of her with her gray roots showing went viral.

I know, right? It's exhausting!

Now, speaking with Glamour in a new interview, SJP is addressing how ridiculous the whole ordeal was.

"I can't spend time getting base color every two weeks," the actress explained of her hair color now, which consists of highlights mixed in and around her natural grays, affectionately called "herringbone highlights."

"Can't do it. Nope. Too much," SJP remarked.

About the viral photos of her last summer, she said: "It became months and months of conversation about how brave I am for having gray hair."

"I was like, 'Please, please applaud someone else's courage on something!'"

I couldn't agree more, girl!
