Sarah Jessica Parker, 56, Slams Rude Comments About Her Age: 'Misogynist Chatter'

Look, it's no secret Hollywood is sexist AF. 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.

You know who else is sick of this double standard? Sarah Jessica Parker. The actress, who is the December Vogue cover girl, has a lot of things to say about the way people treat her, especially on social media.

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 is hitting HBO Max next month.

SJP is having the comeback of the century.

Of course, time has passed since the first time fans met Carrie Bradshaw. At 56-years-old, SJP has embraced her age and is eager to fight back against sexist comments about her looks.

"There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man," SJP told Vogue in response to critics reaction about the And Just Like That promos.

Look, it's not bold of me to say "And Just Like That..." is just as revolutionary as its predecessor series.

Showing women who are well into their fifties living life, having sex, and being whole, complex people instead of just a mother or wife — it's kind of a big deal.

When discussing why "Sex and the City" is so important to so many women, SJP believes its because the show makes the viewers feel like they're hanging out with their own friends.

"Sex and the City has always been about the friendships that sustain you,” the actress told the publication. "That, and the promise and potential this city holds."

Kristen Davis also spoke with "Vogue" for SJP's feature and felt very strongly about the criticism they've recieved.

"People are like, ‘Why should they come back?’ and it really bugs me. Are women’s lives not interesting now? Nobody ever asks, ‘Why would you do this violent remake over and over again?’ For me that is so indicative of our reluctance to sit and watch women’s lives develop over time."

Cynthia Nixon also chimed in for the interview, admitting that she was a huge fan of the show making women in their fifties the stars of the show.

"I like that we’re not trying to youthify the show. We’re not including, like, a 21-year-old niece," she explained.

The show is also including more diversity in the casting and writers room, something the original series was noticeably lacking.

Being able to tell the stories of not just older women, but older women of color is monumental for a television show and something the world so desperately needs!

Actress Nicole Ari Parker told the publication about her experience working on this exciting new project.

"The writers are skillful about having the characters, whether they’re of color or not, acknowledge the newness they’re experiencing," she said.

"But it all fits in with the same beloved tone of the show. The clothes alone are to die for. And let me tell you, there’s still a lot of sex in this version of Sex and the City."

With all this exciting work being done, it's understandable why Sarah Jessica Parker had a huge issue with the media talking about the women's hair color.

"Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair?’ I’m sitting with Andy Cohen and he has a full head of gray hair, and he’s exquisite," she explained. "Why is it okay for him? I don’t know what to tell you people."

"Especially on social media," she added, "Everyone has something to say. "‘She has too many wrinkles, she doesn’t have enough wrinkles.’"

I think anyone who has spent more than 5 minutes of the internet knows what SJP is saying is painfully true.

"It almost feels as if people don’t want us to be perfectly okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy us being pained by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if that makes you feel better," she said.

"I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?"

Absolutely not. You're going to rock it and keep bringing our beloved Carrie Bradshaw to life!
