Sarah Jessica Parker Gets Stroked

Brush strokes, people. Brush strokes. Keep your minds out of the gutter. Sarah Jessica Parker has fans around the world -- thanks to Sex and the City and memorable roles in films like Girls Just Want to Have Fun (a middle school slumber party classic!). So when she was recently in Philly to promote her clothing line Bitten at a Steve & Barry's, hundreds of fans were there to get a taste of the star. One person in particular had a really memorable moment with the SJP -- a local artist named Denise Fike. Denise created and brought a 12-foot high oil painting of Sarah Jessica as a gift. But getting the work of art -- created with gold leaf, vintage wallpaper and enamel -- to the actress was a different matter. There was a little thing called "security" running interference. After waiting 2 1/2 hours among the masses, Denise finally had a moment with Mrs. Matthew Broderick. Denise met her, showed her the painting, got the actress to squeal with delight and declare her love for it. And she almost got Sarah Jessica's address! The actress started writing down her contact info so that Denise could ship it, but Sarah Jessica's handlers stepped in and took the painting for their client. The last Denise saw of her work of art, it was being loaded into Sarah's waiting car. So no thank you note or invitation to the Broderick brownstone in NYC, but getting kudos from SJP for your work? Priceless.
