Actress Sarah Jessica Parker is gracing the cover of Marie Claire’s September issue, where she opened up on her marriage to Matthew Broderick, whom she wed in 1997.

While she is happily married in real life, she is playing a woman dealing with a breakup on HBO's “Divorce.” She said, "For me, it’s really the investment in the other person. And it’s the expectations you have. They change and you get smarter, and maybe you think those expectations aren’t worth striving for with this person, and that’s when people bail.”

Though Sarah has been known for her strong lead roles, how does she feel about the label, “feminist”? She said, "I am not a feminist. I don’t think I qualify. I believe in women and I believe in equality, but I think there is so much that needs to be done that I don’t even want to separate it anymore. I’m so tired of separation. I just want people to be treated equally.”

Sarah also shared her thoughts on the gender pay gap, which has been a hot topic since the Sony hack last year. She shared, "I would like all of that nonsense to end. I would like women to get paid for the value of their contributions, not by old-fashioned ideas about gender.”
