Notoriously private Sarah Jessica Parker has talked frankly about her marriage to actor Matthew Broderick in her latest interview.
Opening up about her 16 year marriage and the affair rumours that rocked the couple back in 2008, the Sex and the City actress said, 'I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him.'
Speaking in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, the 46 year old commented, 'We can only be in the marriage we are. We're very devoted to our family and our lives.'
'I love our life. I love that he's the father of my children, and it's because of him that there's this whole other world that I love.'
However SJP confesses that the pair, who have three children together, never imagined facing such scrutiny about their relationship, referring to the rumours that Broderick had an affair five years ago.
'Yeah, I didn't comment on it,' Parker explains. 'People have asked me about my marriage, 'How do you make it work, and I say, 'We don't talk about it.' That's not really true. It's sort of a nasty response.'
'Matthew and I come from a different time and place. When we were young people, all we ever wanted was to be good working actors. We didn't think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream,' she continues.
'It was to work in theater, to be around those people whose work I was in total awe of. I never saw the trappings; nobody talked about being a celebrity. So when our marriage came up in conversation, it wouldn't occur to us that we were obligated to respond to allegations or gossip. You have to be a bit circumspect, but you also have to take up a position, and you have to stick to it,' she added.
SJP is preparing to return to the theatre in The Commons of Pensacola and is also getting set to launch her own shoe line. About time too.
