Though Sarah Jessica Parker is sad there won’t be a third “Sex and the City” movie, the star is not “dying” to keep the franchise alive. The claim actually goes against what Parker herself said just days ago. Gossip Cop can bust this false story.
The National Enquirer contends in its new issue, “Desperate Sarah Jessica Parker will do whatever it takes to save ‘Sex and the City’ — even if means meeting with Kim Cattrall, who squashed a third movie.” A so-called “mole” is quoted as saying, “Sarah knows the ‘Sex’ franchise is the anchor of all the great opportunities she gets. Another film would breathe new life into the show, and that in turn would bring more opportunities for Sarah.”
“Keeping this franchise alive for her is much bigger than just making another film,” continues the gossip magazine’s supposed source. This alleged tipster declares, “It is the center of everything she does.” The purported insider is wrongly making it appear like Parker’s career revolves around “Sex and the City.” That is patently untrue.
The actress, producer and designer has her hand in a number of projects. Perhaps most notably, season two of her HBO series “Divorce” premieres this Sunday. Nowhere in the supermarket tabloid’s story is it even acknowledged that she has an ongoing TV show. And while Parker would like to continue the “Sex and the City” story with another movie, she confirmed during an interview at last weekend’s Golden Globes that it’s just not happening.
Asked if there’s “any chance” a third movie could still happen, Parker told “Entertainment Tonight,” “Not as far as I can imagine… No, I mean, no. I struggle with it because it’s, you know, it’s a bit sad.” It doesn’t get any clearer than that. As disappointing as it may be to her and others, the star admits the franchise isn’t continuing. She in no way indicated that she’s “desperate” or “dying” for more.
Perhaps the outlet’s story is misguided wishful thinking, but Gossip Cop must note that the publication and its sister magazines have been wrong on this subject before. Last October, the tabloid falsely claimed Parker wanted to kill off Cattrall’s character in order to move forward with a third movie. And then in November, Star wrongly alleged Nicole Kidman was going to replace Cattrall in the film. Time has proven Gossip Cop was right in busting both: Samantha Jones won’t be killed off nor will she be played by another actress. There’s simply no plans for another installment at this time.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
