7 Films you forgot Sarah Jessica Parker was in!

My previous blog post about Sarah Jessica Parker’s new film ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ got me thinking about her career on the silver screen. She has been in quite a lot of films now, but can you actually remember many of them? I am guessing for a lot of people the answer will probably be known. Most well-known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City TV Show.

When looking at her different roles to make this list, one thing that I seemed to notice is that not many of her characters are liked by the other characters. So that probably means that audiences aren’t really too fond on them either. That could possibly be a reason why SJP is not very well received by critics and movie watchers. Although I will always consider myself a fan after Sex and the City, and always hope that she gets some good movies to appear in.

News: McConaughey’s Animal Fantasies

I would bet a lot of people fantasize about Matthew !!!

Matthew McConaughey has an unusual pastime – the actor fantasises surviving in the wilderness when he wants to entertain himself.

The Wedding Planner star has a passion for exotic travel and admits he frequently imagines himself fending off attacks by dangerous beasts on his journeys, armed only with a knife to defend himself.

He says, “I travel a lot in some wild places. I’m always thinking, ‘What if I came across a grizzly bear? What is by best chance of survival? What if a gator (alligator) gets me?'”

But McConaughey has yet to test out any of his wild theories of escape – and the actor hopes to keep it that way.

He adds, “I don’t know if they’d (my theories) work at all. I’m not sure what I want to do with the gator. With the grizzly bear I’ve got a better idea… I hope it doesn’t happen.”
