Movie and TV star Sarah Jessica Parker sat down with gay Vanity Fair and Advocate contributor Kevin Sessums to talk Matthew, gays, and dying alone.
Parker, promoting her new romantic comedy, Did You Hear About the Morgans? was politely grilled by Sessums, an old friend of the star's. When discussing her new perfume, the writer said to Parker, "Honey, don't you have enough money by now?" She responded by saying, "You know me. I have never made a decision based on money in my life."
Sessums also asked Parker if she and husband Matthew Broderick were channeling their "own inner affluent gay men" by having their two new babies through a surrogate mother. "God, that's so true ... and so funny. No, no, no ... Matthew and I were looking at a variety of ways to expand our family. So it's not that simple, channeling our inner gayness. And I wouldn't say that we are done either. We will keep exploring different ways to have a family I think."
Parker also discussed her husband's role in the off-Broadway production of The Starry Messenger, which was saddled with bad press and pre-reviews, and only recently garnered good publicity for Broderick's performance. "We all die alone," Parker said. "At least, that's what I've come to realize. I think that whole experience with The Starry Messenger was ultimately a kind of lonely one for him, and yet it strengthened him.
