TV does not lack di­ver­sity: Sarah Jes­sica Parker

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - En­ter­tain­ment -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Sarah Jes­sica Parker (left) has praised the Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion in­dus­try for not lack­ing in di­ver­sity and gen­der equal­ity.

The 51-year-old star who is most fa­mous for por­tray­ing Car­rie Brad­shaw in Sex and the City, said women tend to be of­fered more work on the small screen than in movies.

In­ter­viewed by ac­tor Michelle Pfeif­fer for a mag­a­zine, Sarah said, “Tele­vi­sion is do­ing bet­ter [in] some of those ar­eas that were, I think, le­git­i­mately crit­i­cised for lack of di­ver­sity and gen­der (equal­ity). And tele­vi­sion seems to —not by force, but re­ally nat­u­rally — come to fe­male di­rec­tors and writ­ers more.”

Michelle Pfeif­fer, 59, agreed with Sarah’s sen­ti­ment and added, “I would love to do some­thing in tele­vi­sion. Be­cause at this stage in my life it ac­tu­ally fits re­ally well, I think there is a range of pos­si­bil­i­ties.”
