Sarah Jessica Parker Describes Matthew Broderick in This Sweet Way

Sarah Jessica Parker reports that the National Enquirer sends her a horrible email every year before her wedding anniversary without fail.

The actress took to Instagram to post an image of the email she receives from the tabloid and a request for comment. Understandably frustrated, Parker included a comment along with the post. “Just like clockwork.
Over a decade of the same untrue, disgraceful nonsense,” she wrote.
“As usual, days ahead of our anniversary on May 19th, The National Enquirer is making its annual best effort to fabricate and undermine, this time a blissful 4 days with my husband in London.”

She continued by saying not only is the couple not fighting, but she and the children are also very proud of Broderick. Parker has spoken about her husband in the past and lovingly had this amazing description of what she loved most about him.

When Matthew met Sarah

The couple spoke to The New York Times in 1996 when they were still dating. She was clearly swooning as the two appeared in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Audience members could sense the couple’s chemistry often referring to them as being adorable on stage.

Broderick and Parker said their romance took time to heat up. “My memory is that literally months passed when I didn’t ask her for a date,” Broderick said.

“Your memory is correct,” Parker said recalling the exact day when they finally started dating. “Then he left a very charming, very self-effacing message on the machine. You know, ‘Hi, it’s Matthew Broderick.’ You had to use your last name.”

Broderick remembers the two went to a movie. “And I still remember very clearly seeing her walk down the street toward the movie theater…it’s very unique, because I wouldn’t remember most people the first time I saw them come down the street. [But] I remember it as clear as day.”

This is what struck her

Parker told the Los Angeles Times in 1996 what really struck her about Broderick. “He’s probably the funniest fellow I’ve met in my whole life,” she said, E News recounts. “He’s so bright, so handsome, I think he’s the most handsome man I’ve seen in my life. And he inspires me. I’m mad for him, totally.”

At the time the couple was working together on stage. “I’m so nervous acting opposite him,” she said. “I don’t know how we’re going to manage this without laughing hysterically at each other. We do not discuss it. I don’t even want to rehearse—I’m going to go onstage with a big blinder on my head—I don’t know what I’m thinking.”

Through the years the couple, like most couples, have had their ups and downs. But Parker said she still fiercely loves her husband. “Relationships are hard,” she remarked.. “I always felt that I wanted to invest more. I love him, and I think he’s brilliant. I’m sure I annoy him. He annoys me sometimes. I’m enormously proud of the person he is. I think the longer you can last, the more invested you just are.”

And this may be one thing that makes their relationship work

Unlike most couples, actors often need to travel for long periods of time. While that may tear some apart, Parker told Sophia Amoruso’s Girlboss Radio on her podcast that was what kept the relationship going.

“I know this sounds nuts, but we have lives that allow us to be away and come back together,” she said E News reports. “His work life takes him here, and mine takes me there. In some ways, I think that that’s been enormously beneficial because we have so much to share in a way… anytime that any relationship is hard, it’s the point in which you’re deciding, is this worth the investment getting through whatever that thing is?”
