Sarah Jessica Parker Slams Rude Comments On Her Gray Hair: "What Am I Going To Do About it? Stop Aging? Disappear?"

The 56-year-old pointed out that men would never be judged for graying.

Sarah Jessica Parker is not here for misogynist and ageist comments. The 56-year-old actress is all set for the release of the Sex and the City reboot show And Just Like That... which is hitting HBO Max next month. Sex and the City was a hit series since it first aired on HBO from 1998 to 2004. The sequel series will highlight changes that have happened to the characters on the show. The HBO Max show will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Parker,) Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) as they navigate life, love, and friendship in their 50s.



 

Obviously, they've aged... it is a natural process, after all. The response for And Just Like That... has been mostly positive but there have been some "bitchy" social-media users who shared photos of the cast of Golden Girls in response to the new show, according to Michael Patrick King, a producer, and writer of SATC. King told Vogue, "When we announced And Just Like That…, there were a lot of positive reactions, but one bitchy 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.’ ”  Sarah Jessica Parker, who is the December Vogue cover girl, added, "There's so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man. '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," she continued of her friend and 2021 Met Gala date. "Why is it okay for him?"



 

 
The six-time Golden Globe winner also noted that "especially on social media," people can be judgmental. '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," she said of the criticism. "I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?" Despite all the noise surrounding the show, they're definitely NOT going to "youthify the show," Nixon told Vogue. "We're not including, like, a 21-year-old niece," Nixon said.



 

SJP has also received praise for embracing her natural appearance from fans on the Internet including beauty editor and author Cait Kiernan. She went viral on TikTok for praising Sarah Jessica Parker for "aging gracefully." "We need to discuss," Kiernan said, according to Yahoo. "If you are a woman over 40 in this country, you know how hard it is to age gracefully. It's not that we don't try, but society has some steep expectations of us." She also pointed out how women over the age of 40 "are expected to look" like they're in their 20s and 30s FOREVER. Which is... let's be honest, ridiculous. "It's only reinforced by magazines, TV shows, and movies. It's bullsh—and exhausting," she said. But she's glad the conversation around women aging is changing. "Finally, a celebrity who has a huge platform, using it to create a healthy narrative around aging as women in America," she said.
