Last night, Sarah Jessica Parker marked her return to TV at the NYC premiere of her new HBO dramedy “Divorce.” Many of her famous friends were on hand to support her, including her good friend and “Extra” special correspondent Adam Glassman.
When Adam greeted her with a gorgeous bouquet, she smiled and said, “He will never accept anything from me, so no… I’m kidding, beautiful, beautiful.”
The actress, who stunned in Dolce & Gabbana, was also seen posing on the red carpet with her “Sex and the City” co-star Cynthia Nixon. When asked if there will be a third “Sex and the City” movie, SJP said, "There is no definitive conversation; it remains orbiting…'Sex and the City 3' is orbiting. That's the first time I've ever said that.”
In “Divorce,” SJP and Thomas Haden Church play a married couple on the verge of divorce. As for what we can learn about marriage and divorce from the series, she dished, “Smart people make bad decisions. And divorce is painful and disappointing and an enormous sense of failure, but it's also amusing and ridiculous. So what can you learn from it? I don't know. Maybe that you're not alone.”
Sarah also explained what drew her to the show, which she is producing as well as acting in. “I was interested in infidelity and marriage, people contemplating affairs, marriages surviving — that being the undoing. Children being a complicating factor, financial distress… I just thought it was rich territory and HBO agreed.”
The 51-year-old was accompanied by actor husband Matthew Broderick, whom she married in 1997. He gushed, “I'm excited. She's very nervous. It’s a very good show.”
The famous couple has also been investing their time in politics. She shared, “We invite people over for debates and inaugurations and election nights. We've spent them all together.” When asked who he was voting for, Matthew joked, “Oh, I don't like to say. But Hillary.”
The couple's friend Jerry Seinfeld was also on hand for the premiere, praising Alec Baldwin’s take on Donald Trump on “SNL.” He raved, “Alec is one of my favorite comedic performers of all time.” His only criticism? “I think I need a little more hands. Donald has very funny hands."
To catch SJP on “Divorce,” tune in for the premiere Sunday on HBO.
