I love it whenever we get new interviews with Sarah Jessica Parker because she always sounds so intelligent and down-to-earth. She’s definitely one of my favorite celebrity moms out there in the entertainment world. This month, she opens up to Harper’s Bazaar magazine where she talks about balancing her home life with her work and how her husband Matthew Broderick, helps her make it possible. She says:
“Matthew and I come from a different time and place. When we were young people, all we ever wanted was to be good working actors. We didn’t think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream. It was to work in theater, to be around those people whose work I was in total awe of. I never saw the trappings; nobody talked about being a celebrity. So when our marriage came up in conversation, it wouldn’t occur to us that we were obligated to respond to allegations or gossip. You have to be a bit circumspect, but you also have to take up a position, and you have to stick to it.
“There’s also the reality of your life,” she continues. “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”
No wonder these two have one of the longest-lasting marriages in the business, right?
