You'll Never Guess What Sarah Jessica Parker Was Once Sent By A Film Producer

You'll Never Guess What Sarah Jessica Parker Was Once Sent By A Film Producer

Hint: It wasn't a pair of beautiful Carrie Bradshaw-worthy shoes...

With her uh-mazing wardrobe and super-toned body, Sarah Jessica Parker has long been one of the most envied women in Hollywood.

But back in 1992 (six whole years before SJP was cast as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And The City to be precise), it seems there was one industry big-wig who had some worries about how she would look on screen.

The producer of the rom-com she was about to start shooting sent her a treadmill as a not-so-subtle hint that they wanted her to get fit for the film.

Can you believe it?!

'I was about to do Honeymoon In Vegas and before that I was off to do another movie in Iowa,' Sarah said during an interview with US radio station SiriusXM. 'The producer of Honeymoon In Vegas was very concerned about me being fit for Honeymoon In Vegas. So they sent a treadmill to Iowa.'

SJP's comment quite rightly caused outrage with host John Benjamin Hickey, prompting the 50-year-old to say that she was being 'dead serious'.

But, the actress went on to admit that there was one song that kept her focussed on clocking up the miles ahead of filming.

C+C Music Factory's insanely catchy 1990 hit Everybody Dance Now.

'I would run to this the summer proceeding me leaving to go to Iowa and then ultimately go to Vegas and New York to shoot Honeymoon In Vegas,' Sarah continued. 'I would very diligently go out every single day and run like a lunatic to this song. And then when I went to Iowa, on the treadmill, I would continue to run to the song.

'And then we went to Vegas and I had a treadmill also in my room and I would get up every morning and run.'

If that doesn't shed a little light on the pressures of working in Hollywood, we don't know what does...
