Everyone needs a break from work and parenting every now and then, including celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker! The former Sex and the City star recently revealed how she unwinds after a busy and hectic day, and her answer may surprise you.

The 52-year-old actress told Capital File that she relaxes by consuming different forms of media such as reading a good old book. “I read a lot,” Sarah explained, adding that she loves to have a paperback in her hand while commuting on the subway because no one will bother her. “I can read the entire time,” she told the publication.

The footwear designer also admitted she eases her mind by going to the theatre or ballet, either solo or with her closest gal pals. “I love going to the theatre and ballet by myself. I also love to be joined by friends,” Sarah stated.

When the HBO star isn’t enjoying a relaxing walk in the Big Apple, Sarah loves to “watch television,” ideally when her husband Matthew Broderick and three children (James, Tabitha, and Marion) are fast asleep. “I get in bed after all the little kids are hopefully content and tucked away and perhaps even asleep, and I watch television,” the actress explained.

It’s great to hear that the mother of three is finding time to rest in the midst of her very busy career. The actress is currently hard at work filming the second season of the hit series Divorce in New York.

Sarah was just as thrilled as fans when news broke that the relationship drama was picked up for another season. The Footloose star opened up to magazine explaining how happy she is to be working on the series again and thankful for all her fans who are watching the show. “It’s so delightful to be back there and telling the story I want to tell and being supported and given the opportunity and the resources to do it.”

Sarah also confessed how grateful she is to “work with extraordinary actors who [she] love[s]… and are incredible and inspiring” on set.
