Sarah Jessica Parker appears on the cover of Cosmopolitan’s August 2015 issue. This is her first cover for the magazine. Posing for Michael Thompson, Sarah talks about her hotly debated Met Gala outfit, and that Instagram at the center of Sex and the City rumors and that she is considering herself a humanist.
“As [playwright] Wendy Wasserstein would say, I’m a humanist. I’m enormously appreciative of the work that my mother’s generation did. We are the beneficiaries of a lot of disappointment, heartache, discouragement, and misunderstanding. But I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles. People of color, gays, lesbians, and transgenders who are carving out this space.”
I’m not spitting in the face or being lazy about what still needs to be done — but I don’t think it’s just women anymore. We would be so enormously powerful if it were a humanist movement.”
“Oh my god. When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked,” she told Cosmo, “They were convinced I had been taunting them. I’m not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there’s no movie? I’m still finding people and being like, ‘No, @BoobityBopBeep! Why would I hurt you?’ I’ve never been a mean girl.”
