Sarah Jessica Parker owns the IRL Carrie necklace, and she nearly lost it, too

If you ever had any doubt that she was actually Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker revealed she has *the* Carrie necklace, AND that, like her Sex and the City character, she almost lost the thing, too.

Parker was speaking at this year’s Vulture Festival in New York, where she spilled the beans about all things SatC. Chatting with New York Magazine editor-in-chief Adam Moss, the 52-year-old actor and producer was quizzed about whether she took home any keepsakes from her time on the beloved HBO series, and there was one thing that Parker said she just had to keep.

“I have the Carrie necklace still,” she admitted. “I love it, and it’s tucked away somewhere safe.”


Of course, fans of Sex and the City will remember that, during the show’s last few episodes, Carrie thinks that she has lost her namesake necklace while in Paris with Aleksandr Petrovsky, and she totally freaks out about it.

Well, in real life, SJP also thought she had lost the necklace.

"I wish I could play that scene again, because now that I’ve lived through it, I’d do a much better job, she said.

The necklace wasn’t the only thing that Parker kept from their time on Sex and the City. The actor said that many of the show’s iconic outfits are archived where they’re just out of reach. “I don’t touch it or wear it,” she said, “but all of that is really meaningful.”

The actor also spoke about the much-maligned second movie in the Sex and the City franchise, and admitted that she knew that they had taken a few wrong steps with the production.

“I can see where we fell short on that movie, and I’m perfectly happy to say that publicly,” Parker stated. “I will say, I also understand how much friggin’ money it made.”

Parker coyly refused to discuss the possibility of a third movie in the franchise. There have been persistent rumors about a follow-up film, and earlier this year SJP herself told Marie Clare that it was still a possibility.

Well, given that she has all the clothes AND the Carrie necklace safely tucked away, it seems a shame to let them just sit in an archive, right?
