Sarah Jessica Parker on 'Carrie Diaries': It's odd

When it comes to The CW's "The Carrie Diaries," it sounds  like we should consider Sarah Jessica Parker unimpressed.

The 47-year-old actress, who played the original Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's "Sex and the City" for six seasons (and two movies), told fashion and shopping website that she's not particularly loving The CW's new "SATC" prequel series.

"I'm not sure," Parker responded when asked what it feels like to see Bradshaw back on the small screen, this time played by 19-year-old AnnaSophia Robb.

(Robb stars in the series as a high-school-aged Carrie Bradshaw in the '80s, as based on the book from "Sex and the City" writer Candace Bushnell.)

"You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity," Parker continued. "[Robb] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it’s… odd.”

As for what "Sex and the City's" legacy might be on TV - aside from that "odd" prequel - Parker's more hesitant.

“I think it certainly encouraged women to share more candidly," she said. "I don't know if it empowered women. I hesitate to say whether we were the pioneers or whether we gave voice to something that was there, but I recognize there was a connection."

    There's no way in hell that this cute girl AnnaSophia Robb would ever grow up to be the horse face that is SJP.

      Interesting point. I think we need to see before and after nude photos of both actresses in order to make a final decision.

    the gosselin blues

    we received what we can monitor her 24/7 now...she has no respect for her boyfriend or the people who go see NOT want too be part of this piece of trash person.

    as we have witnessed she is worse when he is not around–

    Nudity, profanity, and unrestricted discussion of adult topics are essential to the core of SITC. It can't be done on CW. I haven't watched. Most of my friends loved SITC, but i don't know anybody who's watched the prequel.

    I never watched SJP's show, and I haven't seen this new one. Really not my thing. My question would be, who picked that picture out? It's really not very flattering.

  12. SJP has the best marriage any woman could ask for

    she's not a loser wife by any stretch, she is a career woman and can handle a career at the same time...she is not a disgrace like kate gosselin is. SJP is what we call a great wife too matthew unlike kate gosselin who is a disgrace and a poor example to women. sorry kate you deserve it.

    I agree with SJP. They've already screwed up the story line. In SATC, Carrie's father left when she was a child and in this show, it's the mother who's not there.
    I love SJP and think she's a wonderful person, it's just sad to see all the years of smoking she did had such a dramatic affect on the skin on her face. I was shocked to see her appearance in the last SATC movie. Either they caked the makup on or she had work done, but she just didn't look natural at all. Now that I think about it, both Carrie and Samantha could have used a lot less makeup. I get there was almost a decade between the show and the final movie, but good lord....

      I, for one, would not kick SJP out of bed (unless she brought Ferris Buehler with her). She's one, hot, middle-aged woman.

    I am assuming from some of these commenst you are either 12yrs old or extremely unhappy with your own lives...get a grip! I watch one episode of the show and thught it was awful she does not have the same personality of Carrie Bradshaw and on SIC Carries father left her and her mother when she was young. It won't last there is no chemistry on the show.

      i love SJP and her relationship with Mathew–She never makes him look bad especially with a career like his.
      as famous as they both are nobody knows a d*m thing about their personal life...good job SJP to you and
      your marriage too Mathew (Broderick)

    SJP is a better woman then some of you are.....SJP never talks about matthew's "preferences" to the public and why because she know he has a career and would NEVER EVER do that to him.
