What was it like to interview Sarah Jessica Parker?
Well…it was sweaty.
LOL! Let me back up a minute. It was during her press tour in 2008 after she launched Covet, her third perfume, and I only had six minutes to ask her every thought-provoking question in the world.
I was supposed to get 10 minutes with her, but my time got cut down to six minutes at the very last second, so I had to edit out my very insightful questions about her favorite shoes and the best places to get Chinese food in New York City… 🙂
Feeling rushed, I ended up talking a mile a minute just to get through the rest of my questions!
No, seriously, I must have sounded like a crazy person.
The interview took place inside the back of a Macy’s store in the smallest room ever. It was like talking to SJP in a closet, and did I mention that I’m claustrophobic and sweat profusely when I’m trapped in small spaces without any windows?
Girl, I was a mess.
SJP was very professional and polite, and much more reserved, than I anticipated, because all I really knew of her was based on her character, Carrie, in Sex and the City. At the end of the interview, I asked if we could take a quick picture together, but she declined. In hindsight, I think it was because when she asked what media outlet I was with, and I said, “Makeup and Beauty Blog,” she heard the word “blog,” and this was back when blogs were still new on the scene, and they had zero pull and credibility in the beauty world.
I don’t even know whose camera that is to my left in this picture… Whoever it was, kudos, homie, for having a decent manicure. 🙂
Also, please note that I’m rocking beyond skinny brows and a hella frosty brow bone highlight!
