Sarah Jessica Parker on Matthew Broderick Marriage: "Call Me Crazy, But I Love Him"
Her iconic Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw may have been comfortable regularly dishing on her relationship woes and triumphs, but in real life, Sarah Jessica Parker prefers to remain mum about her personal life. In the September 2013 issue of Harper's Bazaar, however, the actress confesses that she couldn't be happier with the life that she's created with husband Matthew Broderick -- (mostly) out of the spotlight.
"I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him," she says of her husband of 16 years. "We can only be in the marriage we are. We're very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he's the father of my children, and it's because of him that there's this whole other world that I love."
The couple, who tied the knot in May 1997, have three children together -- son James Wilke, 10, and twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta, 4.
The 48-year-old actress, who next appears in the Off-Broadway show The Commons of Pensacola opposite Gwyneth Paltrow's mother Blythe Danner, explains that for both herself and Broderick, 51, keeping their personal lives private has always been important.
"Matthew and I come from a different time and place," she says of the actors' humble beginnings. "When we were young people, all we ever wanted was to be good working actors. We didn't think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream."
"I never saw the trappings; nobody talked about being a celebrity," she adds. "People have asked me about my marriage, 'How do you make it work, and I say, 'We don't talk about it.' That's not really true. It's sort of a nasty response."
Parker's indifference to celebrity even extends into her own pop culture icon status, she says.
"I don't think I've ever spent 10 minutes calculating my image," the fashion icon tells the publication. "I can't even recall a conversation."
