Sarah Jessica Parker is one busy lady. Not only has filming started on her next movie--yeah, you know, that one--but she's also hard at work promoting her upcoming rom-com Did You Hear About The Morgans? The film hits theatres this Boxing Day, and we caught up with the lovely SJP to get the lowdown on her character and why she really took the role.
In DYHATM? SJP plays Meryl Morgan, one half of a highly successful, but horribly unhappy Manhattan couple, who become the targets of a contract killer after witnessing a murder. They are whisked away to a witness protection program in small-town Wyoming, where--you guessed it--laughs and romance ensue.
On why she agreed to the film, Sarah Jessica Parker notes, “I liked its whimsy. I haven’t played somebody like Meryl. I haven’t played somebody in a marriage like hers. I really liked how funny the character was on paper, and I liked where their relationship started and certainly where it ends up.”
But what was the ultimate reason for accepting the role? One word: Hugh. “Most importantly, I had really dreamed, like many other people, women in particular, for a long time about doing a romantic comedy with Hugh Grant,” adds SJP.
Oh yes Sarah Jessica, we envy you.
