Hollywood actor Sarah Jessica Parker was hesitant to take on the role of Carrie Bradshaw in TV series Sex And The City because she had issues with the nudity and language used in the popular show.

The 51-year-old actress opened up on how her agent Kevin Huvane was the middleman between her and Sex And The City creator Darren Star, in James Andrew Miller’s new book Powerhouse: The Untold Story of Hollywood’s Creative Artists.

“He called me up and said, ‘Darren Star reached out to me. He’s written this pilot (‘Sex and the City’) and tells me he wrote it with you in mind - you were in his head when he was writing it. I’m going to send it to you. I’ve read it. I think it’s really good. You should meet with him’,” hollywoodreporter.com quoted Parker from the book.

Parker continued: “And I said, ‘Really? I feel like I’ve got it all right now. I can do a play, then do a movie, then do a play, then do a movie. There’s a lot of flexibility. What could be better? Do I really want to go back to making a television series when I’m maybe held hostage signing a long-term contract?”

She shared, “I met with Darren, and there were a couple of concerns that I had. Like I really wasn’t keen on doing nudity and language issues - but Kevin continued to say to me, ‘This is different. You have never done anything like this before. No one’s ever done a part like this. Do this.’“
