She Wanted Out!
It's quite interesting: When most people think about Sarah Jessica Parker, they think about Sex and the City. It's the project that helped turn her into a household name, fashion icon, and bonafide star. Therefore, it may surprise you to find out that immediately after shooting the pilot episode, SJP wanted out of the series. She and her agent tried to talk HBO into letting her out of her contract. Thankfully, it was a no-go, and Parker went on to portray Carrie Bradshaw for a total of six seasons.
