Sarah Jessica Parker Says She Has Deformed Feet
Sarah Jessica Parker says she has deformed feet from years of wearing high heels.
The former Sex and the City star said she has been forced to cut back on her high heel usage after developing a deformity in her feet.
The actress said that the final season of the hit HBO series required her to wear high heels more frequently. As a result of spending so much time in high heels, Sarah Jessica Parker developed an extra bone in her foot.
“I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there … you’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there,” the actress explained to Net-a-Porter.
Parker added, “The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It’s sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, ‘You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop—and don’t put cheap shoes on us?’”
The actress explained that she essentially spent 10 years working 18 hours a day in high heels. The experience left her feet a little worse for wear.
In order to keep her deformed feet healthy, the actress has reportedly cut back on how often she wears high heels. Sarah Jessica Parker said she saves the uncomfortable footwear for special occasions and events.
Although her time on Sex and the City has caused the actress some discomfort, she seems to think highly of her experience on the HBO series. Parker said she felt the show helped pave the way for Lena Dunham’s Girls.
As for the The Carrie Diaries, Sarah Jessica Parker seemed to have some reservations.
“You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity,” the actress explained. “She [AnnaSophia Robb] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about it, but it’s … odd.”
