Last night, I watched the video interview Vogue did called 73 Questions with Sarah Jessica Parker (above). I absolutely loved every second of it, and not just because Sex and the City is my favorite show of all time (although that certainly didn't hurt). This was such a refreshing celebrity interview, from seeing inside her beautiful home to hearing her off the cuff but real and honest answers. And her look when asked whether she prefers flats or heels? Priceless.
I was inspired to think about some of the questions and how I might answer them. So, I hope you'll indulge me as I take a stab at not all 73, but a fair chunk. See which questions I chose to answer after the jump.
