Both Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker are widely acclaimed actors in Hollywood, known for landing their roles in super hit movies and TV series as well for being one of the most talked about power couples in Hollywood. However, after being together for nearly seven years until 1991, the pair decided to split up, the reasoning behind being Downey Jr.’s drug addiction.

A few years after splitting up with the Oscar-winner, Sarah Jessica Parker got the offer of starring in the rom-com TV show Sex and the City as the female protagonist, Carrie Bradshaw. Although accepting the offer, Parker refused to strip naked and film nude scenes for the series. In an interview, the Golden Globe winner said,

“The only thing … I was concerned about was that I just didn’t feel comfortable doing nudity. I suspected that if it wasn’t in the pilot, it would be a part of a series.”

Sarah Jessica Parker also mentioned how she felt ‘too shy’ and ‘uncomfortable’ about exposing herself that way, adding how her decision wasn’t really a ‘morality thing’.

While the Emmy-winning actress felt unease about shooting nude scenes for the series Sex and the City, the show’s creator did not seem to mind it much.

“He said … ‘We’ll have other actors. If they feel comfortable doing it, they’ll do it, but you do not have to,’”

Even though Sarah Jessica Parker didn’t feel comfortable doing it herself, she also added how she neither minded nor judged anyone else shooting the nude scenes, obviously referring to her co-stars in the series. Her co-actresses too admitted that they were fine with their parts. The TV show Sex and the City started airing in 1998 and continued till 2004, completing six seasons of series.
