Sarah Jessica Parker thinks Sex and the City looks 'tone-deaf' today... it's The Dredge

All of the celebrity dirt we could rake up.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

 Sarah Jessica Parker thinks Sex and the City looks ‘tone-deaf’ 20 years on

It’s been two decades since four New York women sashayed on to our screens, and went on to make television history as characters in HBO’s Sex and the City.

But for the show’s lead star, Sarah Jessica Parker, any talk of a remake would only highlight how ‘tone-deaf’ the programme is in today’s cultural climate.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter this week, she vetoed the idea of a reboot.

You couldn’t make Sex and the City today because of the lack of diversity on screen. I personally think it would feel bizarre.

Insistent that various social and cultural factors would hinder a remake, she added:

It wouldn’t be a reboot as I understand it. If you came back and did six episodes, you’d have to acknowledge the city is not hospitable to those same ideas. You’d look like you were generationally removed from reality, but it would be certainly interesting to see four diverse women experiencing NYC their way. 

However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be re-explored in different ways, with the actress adding:

It would be interesting and very worthwhile exploring, but it couldn’t be the same.

She has a point.

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t here for celebrities lying about their diets

In case you weren’t aware, Jennifer Lawrence loves pizza.

But she can’t eat it all time and she won’t rest until she gets every person in Hollywood to admit the same.

Commenting on a celebrity foible which sees stars of the screen deny they ever step on a treadmill or refuse a cookie, Jennifer told InStyle magazine that it’s about time everyone fessed up that their exquisite figures come down to more than good genes.

“I just like it when everyone’s honest,” she said.

Crying out for a little transparency, she continued:

If you are 20 pounds underweight and talk about eating pizza and fried chicken all the time, that’s not going to make people feel good about themselves.

In fact, she wants everyone to take a leaf out of her book, and ‘fess up when they’re dodging carbs prior to a big event.

If I’m going to the Oscars or having a movie premiere – I won’t lie – I’m probably eating differently from how I would in my regular life to fit into those dresses. And I feel comfortable saying that.

And so you should, Jen.

Frankie Grande credits Mac Miller for his ‘safe detox’ from drugs and alcohol

It’s been almost a week since the untimely death of Mac Miller, and last night Frankie Grande paid tribute to the 26-year-old rapper in a poignant post which outlines the impact Mac had on Frankie’s sobriety.

I am beyond heartbroken over Malcolm’s death. He was a good friend and was wonderful to my sister. He was the reason I went to the rehabilitation center where I was detoxed safely from all of the drugs alcohol and medications I was taking, when I couldn’t imagine living without them. It was the place where I found the community of support that showed me that living life without drugs was a possibility and I would never have discovered that if it weren’t for Malcolm. I remember when I would get 30, 60, 90 days clean and Malcom would be there with a gift and a card and words of encouragement... telling me that he knew how hard getting sober is and how impressed he was that I was succeeding. Addiction is a TERRIBLE disease… many people are suffering from addiction like I am and many many of them are losing. Those of us who are struggling with addiction must stay strong. We must continue to work HARD on ourselves every single day and help each other. Our disease is strong but WE ARE STRONGER and I vow to work every moment of my life to keep myself sober so that i may be there for others. This is a difficult road but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TRUDGE IT ALONE. To anyone who needs help, help is there. you just need to have the courage to ask, which I know can be EXTREMELY difficult... but when you do I GUARANTEE support will be there. do not be ashamed if you are losing the battle against addiction, shame feeds the disease, humility defeats it. please ask for help! you are NOT ALONE! I am here... and I will continue to be here... for you... Malcom my friend, you will be dearly missed. and I know you will be looking down on me from heaven, proudAF for every day I live my life clean and sober... 453 days and counting... Thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙏💖 AA: (212) 870-3400 NA: (818) 773-9999 Suicide Prevention Lifeline: :800-273-9255
