Sarah Jessica Parker is the second actress this week to confirm in an interview that yes, even Hollywood stars have to face getting older at some point. (Shocking, we know.)
And, like Reese Witherspoon, Parker, 45, tries to keep aging in perspective.
“I don’t know what I can do about the aging. Yes, I am aging. Oh my God, I’m aging all the time,” she tells Elle in the magazine’s January cover story. “It’s like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?”

Once upon a time, a popular HBO series filmed three alternate endings just to keep the rumor mill from churning. Today, the franchise’s second film is just two weeks away from the box office and the rumor mill is no longer needed.
Nine scenes from “Sex and the City 2” recently showed up online, leaving little to the imagination.
But is an exotic vacation or an ex-boyfriend enough to surpass the more than $55 million “Sex and the City” brought in during its first weekend at the box office in May 2008?

Sarah Jessica Parker - star of "Sex and the City 2" and mother to two new baby girls - graces the May cover of Vogue. And she looks pretty darn good.
"We're still playing—uh, I don't know how old Carrie is! Is she about 42 now?" Parker asked in the Vogue interview. "I think Carrie's younger than I [Parker is 45], and Miranda and Charlotte are younger than they are in real life. Samantha was always the older lady, so she's 52 now and talks a lot about what comes with that. In the movie. Talks about menopause. Comedically."
Parker returned to her children and husband Matthew Broderick after filming for seven weeks in Morocco. She's beginning a new role as the president and chief creative officer of the designer fashion label Halston, but is trying to keep things at home normal.
“We painted our patio furniture ourselves…. I make my children’s food myself. We put together their high chairs ourselves; we do a lot ourselves! We do our own grocery shopping, we go to the market ourselves, you know? I do my laundry.”

Most folks lose their phones or send unfortunate text messages when they’re drunk. Hugh Grant made a profit of $18 million.
The star of “Did You Hear About the Morgans?” was lauded as an art connoisseur in 2001 when he bought an Andy Warhol portrait of Elizabeth Taylor for $3 million. His timing was thought to be impeccable six years later when he sold it for $21 million in 2007.
But it was less of an eye for art and more of a love of drink that led to the sale. Grant recently admitted he had been on a two-day bender when he ordered an assistant to bid on the painting at a Sotheby’s auction in New York.
Grant’s faithful assistant indulged his boozy whim. “To my horror, she did, and even worse, got it,” Grant recently admitted in an interview while doing press for his new romantic comedy with Sarah Jessica Parker.
“It all began with drink. I'd been having a drunken dinner with my father the night before, and I said, 'We ought to go see my brother Jamie. You know, the Concorde's amazing.' And he said, 'I hear it is.' So I bought him a Concorde ticket and we went. We had lunch, drank a lot of beer. And I was thinking about some stuff in the Sotheby's auction and I saw the Liz Taylor.”
Grant also said that even though the sale of the painting bolstered his bank account, he wished he had hung onto it. "I slightly regret selling it now, even though it made me rich," the actor said in an interview posted on the UK's Daily Mail website.
The pop art painting was one of several portraits Warhol created at the height of his fame and creative output in the 1960s.
