The actress has quite the collection in her basement
Sarah Jessica Parker revealed to keep something rather unusual among many collectors’ list. The star has a deep fascination with classic kitchen sinks and stores them in her basement.
She told ES magazine: “I collect old sinks – I’m dead serious. I particularly love Belfast sinks, if I can find them. I keep them in my basement and have quite a decent collection.”
And although she and her family – consisting of Matthew Broderick and their three children – are happily living in New York, the star has always loved London and considers it her other fascination from a young age.
“I first came to London when I was 11 and rehearsing for a play directed by Harold Pinter. I’d watch the Changing of the Guard with my father and one day, I took my cardigan off because it was so warm and draped it over the gate of Buckingham Palace.”
She reminisced about her younger years while with her dad, adding: “I went back the next day and it was still there. My dad exclaimed: ‘Look how civilised the people of London are – they’re so honest and honour-bound!’ Then I said: ‘Some day when I’m a grown-up, I’ll live in London because that’s where grown-ups live.'”
And whenever she visits London, Sarah always makes sure to pay High Grant a visit along with some mutual friends for spaghetti Bolognese.
“I always try to see Mr Hugh Grant when I’m in town. We usually have spaghetti bolognese with mutual friends at Claridge’s.”
