Sarah Jessica Parker has pleaded with fans to strike up a conversation with her instead of "grabbing her" because they want a selfie. The Sex and the City actress is currently in Australia for a two-day tour in association with Australian community for entrepreneurial women, Business Chicks, treating fans to the secrets behind her career success. While promoting the jaunt, the star told the Herald Sun newspaper that being recognized wherever she goes "freaks her out", because overzealous fans literally grab her for selfies. "The world is scary a little bit right now, there's a heightened awareness, there's tension, so that's the only thing that freaks me out is people grabbing me. I much prefer conversation to a selfie," the actress, 54, explained.
"What's happening now is that people actually grab you, people want a selfie, so there's no exchange of, 'Hello, how are you? Do you mind for a moment if we do a photograph?' It's 'Can we do a selfie?'" She clarified: "There's no introduction and when they're doing it they're grabbing you." Sarah's remarks come just days after she was seen looking terrified as she was mobbed by fans at Sydney airport on Monday. The "Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker isn't a huge fan of shopping. In fact, she says shopping sometimes can give her anxiety. "I'm not a crazy shopper," she said on a radio show, reports eonline.com.
"I haven't been for many years. I mean, I think I used to be a little more so. But shopping sometimes can give me anxiety." "I feel bad," she continued. "If I buy something, I'm like, 'Oh do I really need that? Will I want that in five years? Is that going to look good on me in 5 years?'"
