Sarah Jessica Parker, 56, was not afraid to fire back at the “misogynist chatter” surrounding her and her fellow cast members’ appearance. The Sex and the City star said men would never be subjected to the same criticism over ageing.
She admitted she was aware of how her physical appearance had changed over the years but stressed that she had “no choice”.
The star, who is currently promoting HBO Max’s Sex and the City spin-off series, And Just Like That, made the remarks during an interview with Vogue.
She explained: “There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man.
“‘Grey hair, grey hair, grey hair. Does she have grey hair?’
“I’m sitting with [US talk show host] Andy Cohen, and he has a full head of grey hair, and he’s exquisite.
“Why is it OK for him? I don’t know what to tell you people!”
The actress, who plays Carrie Bradshaw in the hit series, 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 OK 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 ageing? Disappear?”
And Just Like That is set for release next month on HBO Max.
The reboot will show Carrie’s friendship with Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) in their 50s.

Kim Cattrall, who portrayed Samantha Jones in the original show, will not be returning for the spin-off.
Another absence that will be sadly noted by fans is that of Willie Garson, who portrayed Stanford Blatch.
The actor tragically died on September 21 of pancreatic cancer at the age of 57.
Sarah opened up about the devastating loss of her friend in view of her 7.3 million Instagram followers.
She typed: “It’s been unbearable. Sometimes silence is a statement.”
Sarah continued: “Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship.
“A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.”
She added: “Willie. I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together. I will re-read every text from your final days and put to pen our last calls.”
