Sarah Jessica Parker Wept When Producers Tried to Force Her to Film Nude
If you're aSex And The Cityfan then you may have noticed something. Whilst Samantha Jones, Charlotte York, and Miranda Hobbes (played by Kim Cattrall, Kristen Davis, and Cynthia Nixon respectively) are all seen partially or fully nude, protagonist Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) is not.
In fact, in the actress' three decade-long career, which includes HBO'sDivorce,and movie classics such asHocus Pocus, she has never been nude on-screen.
The mother-of-three toldPeoplemagazine that she sometimes had to fight to protect her boundaries. She recalled once being in a situation that left her "sobbing." Parker explained, "They were like, 'Sarah Jessica's going to be nude tomorrow,' and I was like 'I'mnotgoing to be nude.'"
However, the Ohio-born star recognizes how lucky she has been to avoid a much more distressing #MeToo moment, considering how widespread sexual misconduct can be in the world of Hollywood.
She credits both her own confidence, and those surrounding her, for the ability to keep her agency when it came to nudity on-set. She said, "I don't know if I had confidence or if I was being counselled by people. There was so much pressure for me to take my clothes off."
The shoe designer noted that her agent was a significant influence in helping her to stand up for herself. She revealed toPeople, "My agent sent a car and a plane ticket [to the film set] and he said, 'If anybody makes you do anything that you're not comfortable doing, you don't.'"
The 52 year-old concluded, "Given what's happening now and the stories told from that particular period, I know how lucky I am that there was someone—in this case, a man—who stepped in."
Parker is a vocal advocate of the Time's Up movement, and does not see nudity itself as the issue, but instead women being forced to shed their clothes without being comfortable doing so. She told the magazine that she just never "dug it" personally. She said, "It's not a value thing, or like I'm judging anyone else. I think it's great when women feel comfortable doing it, and that's their choice."
And this isn't the first time she has spoken about her no-nudity clause. In 2019 the actress toldThe Hollywood Reporter, "I've always had one... Some people have a perks list and they are legendary. They have to have white candles in their room. I don't have a crazy list like that. I've just always had [a no-nudity clause]."
Kudos to SJP for sticking to her guns.
