Sarah Jessica Parker claims to drive a minivan

Don't look for glam movie star Sarah Jessica Parker to pull up next to you in a Rolls-Royce - the actress insists she cruises around in a minivan.

SJP told fellow minivan mom Katie Couric about her ride on “Nightline Tuesday, reports

"Respect the van," Parker proclaimed.

"I sing along all day long while I'm driving my minivan, dropping kids off," she said of carting son James and twin daughters Loretta and Tabitha around in her “leased - not bought” mom mobile.

Her minivan of choice? The Honda Odyssey, which SJP calls “the most wonderful car.”

Parker recalled calling up the Bronx Honda dealership after her own mother insisted she check out the Odyssey.

And how, exactly, does Parker navigate the narrow streets of her swanky NYC West Village neighborhood in said van? Well, the name of her new movie is fitting: “I Don’t Know How She Does It” hits theaters September 16.

    I just want to know why it's so hard to believe that SJP drives a Honda Odyssey. Check this out: Now it's cool to drive a minivan. NOt only that but why aren't people talking about the fact that dads can drive it too?

      Protal's went up first - she wins. Still, Portalpotty is the saddest person on the web because she clearly sits around waiting to be "firsty" to post - on every article posted throughout the day. See for yourself. Probably doesn't even read the articles.

    • Pliny's not that portapotty doesn't read the articles.

      Portapotty CAN'T read the articles.
