Sarah Jessica Parker Height and Weight Stats

Sarah Jessica Parker was born on March 25, 1965, in Nelsonville, Ohio. The fourth of eight children, Parker grew up in relative poverty. After her parents divorced, she was raised by her mother, a school teacher, and her often out-of-work stepfather. She helped support the family at a young age, bringing home paychecks from early dancing and singing gigs. In 1976, after winning her first Broadway role in The Innocents, her family moved to New Jersey to encourage her career. She made her film debut in 1979 with Rich Kids.  In 1982, Parker became known to TV audiences as the endearing geek in her starring role in the sitcom Square Pegs. Shortly after, she received further celebrity with her supporting role in the 1984 hit Footloose.

In the early 1990s, Parker made the challenging segue from teen to adult roles, appearing alongside Steve Martin in L.A. Story (1991), then earning both critical and cult credibility as Nicholas Cage’s fiancée in Honeymoon in Vegas (1992). In 1998, Parker landed the starring role of New York sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO series Sex and the City. The series was made into an original film by the same name in 2008, and its success led to a sequel in 2010. On the small screen, Parker made several guest appearances on the hit musical series Glee. She soon went to work Divorce, a new HBO comedy.
