Star says acting isn't all about looks

Sarah Jessica Parker admits she’s not considered a conventional beauty.

But the actress, who plays Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And The City, doesn’t care about her looks being criticised.

I’m not an idiot,’ she tells OK! I understood there was a standard of beauty and that I didn’t fit into it.

I’ve always thought of myself as an actor who is on a journey and part of that journey is finding good work, regardless of my appearance.

Now I’ve surrounded myself with people who support me the way I am.’
