Sarah Jessica Parker is considered to be one of the most iconic names in entertainment history. As an actress and television producer, she has appeared in many movies and has various awards. Besides her amazing talent, Sarah is known for taking good care of herself, a trait that was shared by the most famous character she ever played — Carrie Bradshaw from Sex And The City.

However, these days, the actress has come under fire for her looks, especially her silver strands, even though it is quite normal for Sarah, who is 57. A few months ago, the actress took some time to address comments about her gray hair after being spotted without makeup. Here are the details.

Sarah Spotted With Natural Looks

Undoubtedly, Sarah is embracing the changes that come with old age, but sadly, many netizens have not been supportive. In July 2021, Sarah was enjoying some time off from shooting Sex And The City when she was spotted with Andy Cohen in downtown New York City. The icon was clad in a blue sleeveless top and sported a natural look. Also, Sarah flaunted her gray hair, which she pulled back into a braid.

Not long after the photo went viral, Sarah received heavy criticism from netizens. Many shamed her for her silver strands and also called the Hollywood icon old.

While many would overlook the harsh words, Sarah stood up for herself, slamming the trolls. During an interview with Vogue Magazine, she revealed that it seemed as though people didn't want her to be perfectly pleased with who she was. According to the actress, many seemed dissatisfied with people like her being happy with choosing to age naturally, not looking perfect, or doing things to feel better.

Sarah further confessed that she knew what she looked like and had no choice. According to her, there was nothing she could do, as she could neither stop aging nor disappear.

Sarah wasn't the only one who addressed the negative comments. Her colleague, Andy, also came to her defense, noting that he also had gray hair. According to him, fans' decision to criticize Sarah was insane and proved that people had missed the mark. Then, Andy finished off by calling the comments misogynistic and revealing that the actress was right for slamming the critics.

Sarah Embraces Her Old Age

It's been over a year since Sarah addressed the critics, and the actress is still owning her looks. In October, she shared some photos on Instagram that saw her clad in a pink ensemble. Sarah donned a pink dress and finished off with a pink back and heels. In addition, her gray hair, wrapped into a bun, was on full display. Sarah received many compliments from fans, friends, and fellow celebrities.
