SJP Covers US Elle Amid Rumours of a Big City Move!

Sarah Jessica Parker graces the cover of US Elle's January issue. Tom Munro was the photographer behind the accompanying shoot —  make sure to check out more images from the spread. SJP's gearing up to film I Don't Know How She Does It while relishing her role as president and chief creative officer at Halston. She's also focusing on her three children, and possibly even prepping to make a move uptown after years in the NYC's West Village! She opened up inside the magazine to chat about missing her kids, aging, her new job, and more. SJP said:

  • On aging: “I don’t know what I can do about the aging. Yes, I am aging. Oh my God, I’m aging all the time. It’s like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?”
  • On meeting her newborn twins: “[Meeting them] is hard to describe. Everything is suspended. I can’t even tell you what other sounds were in the room. I loved them immediately, but everything—their size, the shape of their heads, the colour of their hair, their noses, their eyes—was new to me. They looked surprisingly different from James Wilkie, which I wasn’t expecting.”
  • On Tabitha's style: “She’s crazy for bows; she wants her head covered in them.”
  • On leaving her children for work: "Even now I think about [the separation], and it makes my stomach hurt. I think about my son waking up on his birthday without me there, and I could die."
  • On taking her role at Halston seriously: “I said, ‘Please know this now: I will never do this for a title. I will never dip in and out of this. I’ll do it like everything else I’ve ever done. I’ll be involved down to the splitting of the atom.’”
  • On her design skills: “I might not have the language; I can’t always tell you the exact blend of a fabric, but I figure it out.”

..."They looked surprisingly different from James Wilkie" COME ON NOW, SJP...use your brain a little! Other than that, she sounds lovely. I like that she is ready to admit that she might not know all about designing but she is willing to learn.

Anonymous, not sure if the 'um duh' was because they are girls, so obviously they would look slightly different, or if you are assuming they aren't her children. She never disclosed if her eggs were used or not-the twins could still be biologically hers, only carried by a surrogate. Either way, none of our business, and she looks beautiful in this photo shoot.

lbb: did she do something to you? yikes I'm not a huge fan of SJP, I never got into SATC...but I like this interview...she seems so what she had to say about aging. "Lunatic" indeed lol

I love SJP, She is truly beautiful and accomplished. She has a family but still does what she loves. Women nowadays don't have to choose between career and family, and I think that's great! When ever SJP chooses to give it all up and focus on her family only, the world will forever remember her for the FABULOUS Carrie Bradshaw. I excitedly await my January edition of Elle. :)

If she's so worried about being separated from her children and wanted more enough to have them through a surrogate, perhaps My Little Pony should stay home with them. It's not like she needs the money.
