Most Sex And The City fans are ecstatic about the upcoming revival And Just Like That... — but not everybody has positive things to say about it.
"'Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair?' I'm sitting with Andy Cohen, and he has a full head of gray hair, and he's exquisite. Why is it okay for him? I don't know what to tell you people!" the 56-year-old added.
"Especially on social media," the Hocus Pocus star continued. "Everyone has something to say. 'She has too many wrinkles, she doesn’t have enough wrinkles.'"
"It almost feels as if people don’t want us to be perfectly okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy us being pained by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if that makes you feel better. I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?" Parker said.
"When we announced And Just Like That…, there were a lot of positive reactions, but one b****y response online was people sharing pictures of the Golden Girls. And I was like, 'Wow, so it’s either you’re 35, or you’re retired and living in Florida. There’s a missing chapter here,'" And Just Like That...'s showrunner Michael Patrick King told Vogue.
"I like that we're not trying to youthify the show," Cynthia Nixon, who is reprising her role as Miranda Hobbes, chimed in. "We're not including, like, a 21-year-old niece."
"I think it's revolutionary to do a show about middle-aged women, with their aging lady bodies," And Just Like That... writer Samatha Irby told the publication.
According to HBO Max, And Just Like That... will follow Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York [Kirstin Davis] as "they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s."
The 10-episode SATC reboot is slated to air on HBO Max and Sky Comedy in December.
