Sarah Jessica Parker is too “old and tired” to get dolled up on a daily basis nowadays.
The Sex and the City actress has admitted in a new interview with InStyle that she used to put in so much effort to look flawless, but she’s now got to the stage where she simply aims to appear “presentable enough”.
“I try to be presentable enough so it’s not offensive to somebody in a meeting,” she stated. “I used to think there was a certain way to be appropriate in a meeting, but I think at a certain point in your life you realise, well, my brain is appropriate and I’m going to speak in a way that’s appropriate, and hopefully, my ideas are welcome in the conversation. If my grey sweatshirt is offensive to someone, then that’s not somebody who wants to be in a conversation with me anyway. I am not able to do it anymore, I’m only able to be myself. I’m just so fricking old and tired.”
The 54-year-old also shared that she tends to wear the same type of clothes when she takes her children – 10-year-old twins Tabitha and Marion and 16-year-old son James – to school every morning.
“I don’t think I always look super good when I walk out the door. I look like almost everybody else at drop off,” Parker insisted. “I wear the same thing every day, to be honest. I usually have grey pants on and a grey shirt because anything goes with the grey. I wear sunglasses and my hair in a bun, with no base.”
The star is currently promoting her company SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker’s collaboration with Sunglass Hut. She designed an oversized shield-like frame which comes in five colourways.
