Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker has admitted she feels ‘enormous regrets’ about doing the sequel movie to the hit series because it has put so much strain on her family.
The actress said her work schedule, which recently had her filming in Morocco, cut the amount of time she was able to spend with her baby twins Tabitha and Marion, who were carried by a surroagate.
She and husband Matthew Broderick also have a son, seven-year-old James Wilkie.
She told the January 2010 issue of Glamour Magazine: “Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls.
“It’s been different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful.
‘Tabitha and Marion just turned four months old – one would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues.
‘It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about.”
But despite all the pressures of juggling a hectic work schedule and family pressure Parker, 44, who wed Broderick, 47, in 1997, also hit out at claims their marriage is on the rocks.
She added: “I never really talk about this because too many [people] speculate about my marriage, anyway!
“I think when you are younger, you get swept away by grand gestures – when you have children and years invested, it’s much more complicated.
“It’s the day-to-day stuff: the kind of parent you are, the kind of partner you are – it’s the little and big things as opposed to just the big things.
“But you are not meant to know that when you are younger, so I don’t think anybody should regret the choices they made in their twenties.”
Parker believes that the new movie with her co-stars Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis will be more fun that the first ‘Sex’ film.
She tells the January 2010 issue of Glamour magazine: “The first movie had a lot of sadness in it, and it was very brave about breaking the rules of romantic comedy.
This one is very much the antidote for that: It’s a romp – it’s the idea of women’s and men’s roles in marriage, and old traditions versus new ones. The story is really fun, but it’s also about something”
