Sarah Jessica Parker has opened up about her decision to avoid on-screen nudity, despite "there [being] so much pressure" for her to strip off.
In an interview with People, Parker explains: “I just never dug it. I think it’s great when women feel comfortable doing it, and that’s their choice.”
"There was so much pressure for me to take my clothes off,” she continued, adding that her agent always had her back and reassured her she didn't have to do anything she wasn't comfortable with.
“My agent [CAA’s Kevin Huvane] sent a car and a plane ticket [to the film set] and he said, ‘If anybody makes you do anything that you’re not comfortable doing, you don’t.’ Given what’s happening now and the stories told from that particular period, I know how lucky I am that there was someone - in this case, a man - who stepped in.”
Parker, who also addressed the drama with her Sex and the City co-star Kim Cattrall, says that when she later saw another woman from the movie, the woman recalled SJP “sobbing” from the pressure.
“They were like, ‘Sarah Jessica’s going to be nude tomorrow,’ and I was like, ‘I’m not going to be nude,’” Parker said.
