Actress Sarah Jessica Parker, known for always appearing in the height of fashion in “Sex and the City” and other roles, is apparently paying a price for all that fashionableness.
USA Today reports that the actress has permanently damaged her feet by running around in high heels for all those years.
"I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there … you’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there,’" Parker said in an interview with luxury e-tailer Net-a-Porter’s digital publication.
Parker, who apparently will have to give up her “haute heels,” adds: "The moral of the story is the chickens are coming home to roost. It’s sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, ‘You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop — and don’t put cheap shoes on us?’”
Part of the problem may be that, after years in expensive heels, Parker eventually stepped out of her pattern and went cheap.
"I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained,” Parker said. But when she did “I Don’t Know How She Does It” in 2011, she says, "I was very thoughtful about my whole wardrobe and said, ‘You know, (her character, Kate Reddy) could not afford really good shoes, she would go to Nine West.’
"So I got shoes from there and the bottom of the shoes aren’t leather, they are plastic, so I slipped a couple times, twisted my ankle."
Parker, a mother of three, notes that these days she’s much less fashionable: "I have more pants, more jeans and more corduroys than I ever imagined I’d own in my life."
