Contrary to popular belief, Sarah Jessica Parker was not born wearing a pair of Manolo Blahniks, though she may have been concerned about her entrance into the world being a nude scene. Thanks to a no-nudity clause in her contract, the “Sex and the City” TV actress was the only one of the quartet who did not appear naked during the show’s six-year run,

Many people think they have the full scoop on SJP because she let it all hang out as Carrie Bradshaw, the neurotic New Yorker she played on the iconic female buddy show, but the feisty fashionista is not the character she played on TV. With the release of her new movie, “I Don’t Know How She Does it,” here are four more fun factoids to share with your friends about this talented actress.

Sarah Jessica Parker was poor growing up: Had there been Payless shoe stores back in her day, that’s where SJP would have shopped for her footwear. One of eight children, she counted pennies, not ponies. Even Christmas presents were a luxury. “Once you were old enough to know the truth about Santa, you graduated to wrapping presents for the babies,” she told Grazia magazine. “We always got the tree on Christmas Eve, because that’s when they cut prices.”

Sarah Jessica Parker dated John F. Kennedy Jr.: Before marrying Matthew Broderick, SJP briefly dated John F. Kennedy Jr., a member of America’s “royal” Kennedy clan, who later died in a private plane crash. Reminiscing about her romantic partner, Parker revealed to Elle magazine, “John was really beautiful. He was sort of beyond being a sexual person. There was this crazy elegance, really male. (He was an) extremely American handsome boy-man.”

Sarah Jessica Parker hated her signature mole: Despite it being a prominent facial feature for years, the mom of three never fancied the mole on her chin. After her plastic surgeon brother-in-law removed it three years ago, the 46-year-old actress confided to David Letterman, “I just didn’t care for it.” Turned out she had been too busy to do anything about this self-perceived flaw until she had a small packet of time on her hands for the wound to heal.

Sarah Jessica Parker started her career as the frizzy-haired friend,” not the hot leading lady: The woman who launched her career as the platonic Annie on Broadway and frumpy friend on the “Square Pegs” TV show was not predicted to become the sensuous single character Carrie Bradshaw. Some critics credit Steve Martin’s “L.A. Story” with the image shift. Parker played the part of sexy spokesmodel SanDeE* in the movie.
