Sarah Jessica Parker - Parker Planning A Long Getaway To Avoid Mean Tabloids And Paparazzi
Sarah Jessica Parker is planning a long family break far away from her native New York and Hollywood, so she can fulfil her travelling dreams.
The Sex and the City star admits she's growing tired of the negatives that come with fame, like the paparazzi and tabloid reporters, and she's craving a long holiday with her husband Matthew Broderick and their three kids.
She says, "(I'd like to get) as far away as possible, with my children (and) eat the strangest food, see things I could never imagine, smell things, hear things. That I have to do. I have terrible, wonderful, wanderlust."
And that break could come sooner rather than later - because she needs an extended holiday.
She tells ABC News, "I think the things that are more painful to me are not the intrusion of paparazzi, it's the lack of civility that I find more intimidating and far more painful an experience. It's the lack of critical thinking. It's the endless snarky, mean way we talk about each other, we approach each other. The anonymity of being cruel, the delight in tearing people down. The tabloid era that we find ourselves in is a cultural boneyard, and that is painful to me.
"Dealing with the streets of New York and going to the market myself and navigating being a public person, in physical ways, I am up to the challenge. It is the emotional scar tissue that is incredibly difficult for me."
