From Broadway Beginnings to Hollywood Breakthrough: Sarah’s Early Career

Sarah Jessica Parker was born on March 25th, 1965, in a little place called Nelsonville, Ohio. Her family was big—larger than most—with eight siblings to sit alongside at the family dining room. They sparked her love for performing at a young age. She trained in singing and ballet, and before she even hit puberty, she was in the limelight on Broadway. She not only scored a gig in the production of The Innocents but she and four of her siblings also performed in The Sound of Music. Because of this, they packed their bags and moved to New Jersey.

Imagine being a teenager and already juggling a budding acting career—that was Sarah at Dwight Morrow High School. But the grind didn’t stop her. She got herself a role in the TV movie My Body, My Child (1982) and bagged the lead in the sitcom Square Pegs (1982), in which she played the quirky high-schooler Patty Green.

Despite graduating, SJP decided higher education wasn’t for her; instead, she put all bets on her acting career. Major roles started rolling in after Square Pegs, with her stealing scenes in Footloose (1984), Firstborn (1984), and Girls Just Want to Have Fun (1985). Even though she was nailing it, the big, game-changing role eluded her.

By the late ’80s and early ’90s, SJP had built quite the resume, dabbling in both TV series and TV movies. Then came the breakthrough when she won hearts as Steve Martin’s bubbly love interest in the 1991 comedy L.A. Story. She killed it opposite Nicolas Cage in Honeymoon in Vegas (1992), paving the way for a role that would put her on the map in one of the most iconic TV series ever.

Striking Gold with ‘Sex’: Parker’s Earnings from Acting

It can’t be overstated just how much it all changed for Sarah following the premiere of Sex and the City in 1998. She played the ultimate NYC gal Carrie Bradshaw in the much-loved HBO show. With that fame came the fortune. For the first three seasons, she brought home $50 million. Then she became a producer in season 4, bagging a cool $3.2 million an episode. That’s about $147 million from seasons 4 through 6!

Sex and the City got so massive, it spun off into two film adaptations. For the first in 2008, Sarah picked up $15 million. Though the 2010 sequel was generally held in low regard, Sarah scored a mind-blowing $20 million for returning as her alter-ego.

Sarah’s gig as Carrie didn’t just finish with the films. She came back as our favorite columnist in the HBO Max spinoff series And Just Like That…, bagging at least $1 million an episode. With a 10-episode first season, she scored a cool $10 million. Carrie is clearly the gift that keeps on giving!

Diversifying the Portfolio: Sarah’s Side Hustles

Aside from her acting gig, Sarah has built up some serious extra coin, thanks to her business savvy and fashion knack. Recall 2007, she dipped her toe into the fashion pool using her trendsetter image to kick off her Bitten fashion line at Steve & Barry’s. In 2013 she went one “step” further, launched her own killer SJP shoe line, capitalizing on the shoe obsession sustained by her onscreen character.

She then went beyond clothes and shoes. In 2019, she caught the wine bug and hopped on the grape train with the launch of Invivo X, SJP. This wine label is her brainchild, cooked up in collaboration with Kiwi company Invivo & Co.

We’ve got to give a shoutout to SJP’s booming fragrance line, too. In 2010, she hit the jackpot when her perfume line brought in over $18 million. Clearly, her personal style and taste in scents are something fans, and people generally, go bananas for. This has seriously put some extra weight in her wallet.

Sarah’s Luxury Living and Philanthropic Efforts

Sarah and her husband Matthew Broderick dropped some serious cash on a pad in the West Village in Manhattan. But this isn’t your regular mansion (if there is in fact such a thing as a “regular” mansion). We’re talking two independent townhouses, which they merged into one massive dream home. How big was the price tag? $34.5 million in 2016. Before they moved into their double mansion, they sold their old Manhattan digs for $15 million, having bought it for a mere $3 million in 2000. Oh, and don’t forget their other property, a place in Greenwich Village that cost them $19 million in 2011. They intended to flip it but ended up selling it at a slight loss of $18.25 million in 2015.

And then, of course, there are the cars. Even Manhattanites need wheels. We don’t know all the details, but we do know that some of SJP’s rides are a Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Convertible, and a Mini Cooper S Convertible. Obviously, she likes to roll both in style and in speed.

But it’s not all dollar signs and designer gear for Sarah. She’s big on giving back to those in need. Back in 1997, she became a UNICEF ambassador; since then, she’s been passionate about helping out the organization. She’s served as the national spokesperson for the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign three times. Plus, who could forget that signed bathrobe she donated for the 60th Anniversary Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Charity Buzz auction.

Beyond the Spotlight: The Real Sarah Jessica Parker

As Sarah’s professional life took root, so did her romantic life. Sarah’s young love was just like ours: messy! She was in a seven-year saga with Robert Downey Jr. that was overshadowed by his drug issue. She also had a thing with JFK Jr. and even a rumored fling with her “Honeymoon in Vegas” castmate Nicolas Cage. 

However, she met her rock in fellow actor Matthew Broderick. Introduced by one of Sarah’s brothers, the couple got hitched in a surprise ceremony in 1997 (with SJP breaking the rules in a black wedding dress!). They’ve since built a cute family with a son, James Wilkie in 2002, and lovely twin girls, Marion and Tabitha, born via surrogate in 2009.

Drama Beyond the Screen: Parker’s Controversies and Legal Issues

While the life of her character Carrie Bradshaw was indeed one long roller-coaster ride, Sarah’s reality was not without its drama and legal hang-ups. The long-standing tiff with her “Sex and the City” co-star Kim Cattrall had done quite the rounds in gossip columns. From pay drama to alleged petty cliques on set, it’s thrown quite a bit of shade on the BFF vibes we all loved in the show.

Her business endeavors also brought with them their fair share of legal issues. Sarah ended up in a legal spat with jewelry designer Kat Florence in 2018, over a swanky jewelry line collaboration that didn’t quite live up to the hype. Kat Florence Design Inc. claimed SJP didn’t meet her end of the bargain for promoting their collection named after her, a task that injected $7.5 million into Parker’s pocket. But things finally settled down in 2019 when both parties decided to, let’s say, bury the diamond-studded hatchet.
