Sarah Jessica Parker has decided to age naturally -- but she admits that it's not always easy! The 45-year-old actress, who shows off her designs for Halston in the new issue of Elle, says that she has to face the hard truth every time she looks in the mirror.
"I don't know what I can do about the aging," she jokes. "Yes, I am aging. Oh my God, I'm aging all the time. It's like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do?"
Well, the conventional Hollywood answer would be: get lip injections, a boob job and lots of Botox. But SJP is determined not to go that route, saying that she would "look like a lunatic" if she tried to alter her appearance. She must be doing something right, because she sure doesn't look like a wilting flower from here!
For Parker, who married Matthew Broderick in 1997, one of the best parts of growing older is becoming a mother. The couple has three children: son James Wilkie, eight, twins Marion and Tabitha, now eighteen months old. Because the girls were delivered via surrogate, Parker says, the second time around was a whole new experience.
"[Meeting them] is hard to describe," she tells the magazine. "Everything is suspended. I can’t even tell you what other sounds were in the room. I loved them immediately, but everything—their size, the shape of their heads, the color of their hair, their noses, their eyes—was new to me. They looked surprisingly different from James Wilkie, which I wasn’t expecting."
The January issue of Elle, featuring Parker on the cover in a to-die-for green dress, hits newsstands on December 15.
