SJP: The Girls Have "Reckless Behavior" in SATC 2
During Sunday's NYC press conference for Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker jokingly hinted that Kristin Davis had tummy troubles while shooting their sequel in Morocco.
"We didn't even have a bathroom," Parker told reporters of the rough conditions of their on-location shoot. "There was literally no interruptions. Kristin Davis got sick."
Davis admitted, "I didn't want anyone to know." The star texted Parker's brother Aaron, who worked behind the scenes on the film. "So I texted Aaron. I was like, 'Aaron, can you call the doctor. I can't get out of bed!' And then we didn't tell anyone until I was better. It was our little secret."
"Apparently," Parker added, "If you're very sick and have a very serious intestinal issue, you just need warm milk."
A laughing Davis quickly interrupted her. "Stop, stop, stop! You don't have to tell them everything!"
"I didn't say you," Parker giggled. "I said you had a strange cough."
Parker said that the shoot was "laborious and Herculean, but it was one of the greatest experiences of my professional life...To live and work with this cast and that crew every single day to see the sun rise and set over our locations in the most far flung places. To lie in a bed all day with these women exhausted and laughing. To be on a camel with Kim Cattrall, which disobeyed all orders."
"Yes, it was hard," but admitted. "But we could not have done it anywhere else, this way."
Parker and Chris Noth were coy about any romantic strife between their characters Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big in the sequel.
"An event that happens that could possibly be poisonous to their relationship," Noth hinted.
Teased Parker: "There is not a villainous move by any man in this movie. Any consequences are on a part of us and the choices [the women are] making and some momentary reckless behavior... It's all us, and we come home, frankly, a little wiser."
