Shield your eyes if you don't want everything you know and love about Sex and the City to be forever tainted. Trust us when we say you will never be able to watch the show the same again. While a guest on the Nerdist podcast, Sarah Jessica Parker blew our minds with her theory about the beloved series. Are you ready for this? You still have time to turn back. Although, we recommend sticking around because no matter what you think about it, it's a fascinating theory. Bonus: In case you want to binge it again, you'll have a whole new lens in which to watch it. While on the subject of film and TV theories, SJP confessed, "I used to wonder if Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were real." Let's pause for a moment to wrap our heads around this concept and perhaps pick up our jaws off the ground.
The Divorce star went on to say that perhaps these women were just a part of her column. We know, right?! In other words, Carrie's crew represented different archetypes of women instead of being living, breathing humans. Deep breaths, everyone. "We don't know if any of that stuff that happened is real," she continued. "What we are seeing isn't necessarily what happened in New York." She explained that the scenes we saw were possibly just meant to "illustrate" her column. Are you okay right now? Do you need a moment for mourning and processing? We know it's shocking, but it's also pretty cool to think about.
If Miranda, Sam and Charlotte were never real, what about their hubby's, kids and good old Magda?! Say it ain't so. You can't have a show without good old Magda. C'mon. We can't help but question the existence of Big, Aiden, the Post-It guy, and everyone in between. Could those all just be representative of male archetypes? Is Carrie just kind of kooky like that? SJP confirmed that while she does wonder about the reality of her former characters squad, Carrie might have just been creating giant metaphors of sorts; not living in a grand delusion. Very interesting!
