Calling all Sex and the City fans.

Sarah Jessica Parker AKA Carrie Bradshaw has been an iconic person and character ever since the HBO series made its debut, and now SJP has opened up to BuzzFeed about her famous role and what she may or may not have in common with her namesake.

Let's be honest, every group of girlfriends will label each individual as a Carrie, Miranda, Samantha or Charlotte. In real life, does the First Wives Club actress really think of herself as a "Carrie"? Not so fast...

"I think in many ways I'm like Carrie because I would much prefer to be interviewing you, for instance. I'm very curious about other people, and that's why I like the subway. Because I can just watch people," she explained. "And that's why I like cities. And I love this city, and I have a fondness that is kind of hard to explain to people, so I can relate to that."

While their passion for people and New York City give the two a common ground, it pretty much stops there.

"I think there's not a lot about Carrie that is actually similar to my life. Our choices have been so radically different. There are certain kinds of pillars that fundamentally are different," she continued. "I like clothing, but I don't have anywhere near a fevered relationship that she does."

In other words, she won't be giving up dinner for Vogue.

"No. No, I would never give up food. Ever," she said.

Although she is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of her fragrance, Lovely, SJP also looked back at some of her other famous roles, including Hocus Pocus. It's timelier now more than ever since Halloween is rapidly approaching, which means it is playing on a loop on every channel. Surprisingly enough, Parker admitted that she hasn't seen it in quite some time.

When asked when she watched it last, she admitted, "Never! Or maybe when it came out."

That's right. Matthew Broderick's wife maybe hasn't seen one of her best films. But she more than made up for it when she said she would be up for filming a sequel!

"I said I would! And I got in so much trouble on Twitter for it," she confessed.

Now that we know she and Bette Midler are on board, can we please get one?!

Speaking of nostalgia...look back at SJP gushing about winning an Emmy for SATC!
