As I mentioned yesterday, Warner Brothers threw a launch party for the “Sex and The City” DVD truly befitting Carrie & Co. From my spot on the media-filled pink carpet, I got the scoop on what’s next for some of the SATC cast.
Willie Garson (Stanford), wearing an $18 vintage suit bought in Pittsburgh with a custom-made shirt from London, shared his excitement about being in the middle of adopting a baby.
Calling the movie a gift, Willie told me he’s hoping a sequel will get Stanford a life partner. “Or,” he quipped, “taken care of by an older woman.”
Mario Cantone (Anthony) wants Brad Pitt to play his boyfriend in the SATC sequel. Mario was on a tear about the Republican presidential ticket, declaring he’ll put himself in quarantine if McCain gets elected.
Writer and executive producer Michael Patrick King reflected on SATC’s fifth character -- New York City.
“The idea of the series is that when you come to New York, that’s when your life starts,” he said. “That’s when you form a family.”
I asked him what it was like to film the movie surrounded by crowds of fans.
“It was part history pageant, part theater and part movie set--like being at a rave with all of your friends.”
When asked about a sequel, Michael Patrick said he wants to deliver a good story -- a sentiment echoed by Sarah Jessica Parker.
"It has to be worthy of the audience," she said.
The final celeb to make it down the pink carpet, SJP dazzled in an Alexander McQueen dress and shoes and Fred Leighton jewels.
Look at those shoes!
