Los Angeles: Actress Sarah Jessica Parker, who has son James Wilkie, 14, and twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta, seven, with husband Matthew Broderick, says she is a “controlling” wife and mother.
“I do a lot because I’m controlling. I’m a person who is fastidious and exacting and so I do a huge amount. What is surprising is how much my husband can do and does in my absence,” Parker told Red Magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Everybody gets where they need to be. But still, he’s not going to put everything away at night. When I come home, I can see the path (of mess),” she added.
Parker’s most recent role has come in TV show “Divorce”. The drama series has taught her that none of the small things about her spouse that “annoy” her, really matter in the broader context of their relationship.
She said: “I learned something really important, which is be smart enough to recognise that the things that annoy you about a long-term partner don’t actually matter.
“Like anything that annoys me about Matthew – and trust me, there is a laundry list twice as long about things I do that annoy him, I’m sure of it – fundamentally it doesn’t matter.
“So if you’re still talking about the minutiae that annoys you, then the stuff that really matters must still be in place.”
