She explains, “I never wanted to be a celebrity; I never wanted to be famous. And in my daily life, I work really hard not to trade on it in any way. I am so desperately worried about anybody saying, ‘She cut in line’, or ‘She took our table’, or ‘She got out of jury duty’, or ‘She doesn’t do her own grocery shopping’. The things that bother me are counter to who I am and the way I live. It’s not like it’s hard to be decent and respectful and well-behaved. I do wait in line, and I do take the subway, and I do do my own grocery shopping, and I do take the kids to school.”
Parker says she thrives on her career. “I love, love, love being an actor. It’s still the hardest and scariest thing I do, outside of parenting. But I’ve always been someone who likes a busy day. I love the opportunities, and if I can manage my time and the children are okay and we’re okay, it’s hard to say no…”
