Sarah Jessica Parker had this to say about playing another Sex and the City type character:

“I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Sex and the City’s Carrie and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”

Elle Fanning discussed growing up in the movie business during her interview for the Elle Women in Hollywood issue. The young actress stated that she performed in movies the same way other children played sports or learned an instrument. Fanning also noted that, just like other kids her age, she is working to get better at what she does.
