'I'm a realist about what I look like': Sarah Jessica Parker on how her insecurities are more than just skin deep

Woman in black: Sarah Jessica Parker opts for billowing in the city at the 34th Kennedy Center Honors in Washington last night

Sarah Jessica Parker has in the past admitted she finds negative comments about her physical appearance 'hurtful.'

But these days the busy mother-of-three considers worrying about her looks a 'wonderful problem'.

The 46-year-old now claims she feels more insecure about her career and family life than being considered attractive.

Rare night out: The actress admits finding time to spend with husband of 14 years Matthew Broderick isn't always easy with three children

She told Stella magazine: 'I try to dress appropriately for my age and I’m a realist about what I look like.

'But if those physical things were my insecurities I’d be thrilled. What wonderful problems.

'My insecurities are more substantial than that. I worry first and foremost about my children and their health. My husband, and his. I worry about what work opportunities will come up.'

Up-do: Parker opts for a dramatic hair style and make-up, a far cry from every day when she prefers a low-key look that 'won't embarrass her son'

Botox free: Parker has never gone under the knife, or had injections or fillers, preferring the natural look

And rather than pander to public opinion - she was voted unsexiest woman alive by Maxim magazine - SJP refreshingly eschews any kind of cosmetic surgery, even injections and fillers.

She said:'There are women who feel that Botox is necessary, but more and more I don’t think it is important for the industry.'

The actress, who attended the 34th Kennedy Center Honors in Washington with Mathew Broderick last night, also admits finding the time to work on her relationship isn't always easy with three children to look after.

But despite hanging up her Carrie Bradshaw (Manolo Blahnik) shoes, the star still managed to look the picture of glamour in a long black dress and dramatic up-do.

The couple jetted home hours after the event as SJP just about managed to swap her voluminous outfit for more comfortable attire - but didn't have the time to change her hair and make-up or even remove her jewelry.

She said: 'Kids can really distract you from your relationship.
'Maybe in good ways and bad ways.

'It’s important to have all eyes on all parts of the relationship.'

The Sex and the City star had twin girls with the help of a surrogate after trying to get pregnant naturally.

She said: 'We tried and tried and tried but it just wasn’t meant to be in the conventional way’.

Her children, James, 10, Tabitha and Marion, three, keep her so busy her wardrobe is a far cry from her Sex and the City days.

She says: 'I wear anything I can put on quickly and not embarrass my son in’.

Carrie Bradshaw fans will be disappointed.

Back to the day job: The actress barely has time to take her make-up off as she heads home after the event
