Sarah Jessica Parker
feels "old and tired".
The 45-year-old actress - who plays glamorous writer Carrie Bradshaw in the 'Sex and the City' movies and TV series - says motherhood has left her so exhausted she has no time to spend on her appearance.
She said: "I don't have a beauty
secret. I feel old and tired! I have children I run round after, I try to walk as much as possible, and other than that I buy every cream possible.
"I love beautiful clothes and am privileged enough to have access to a lot of them, but they're returned the next day. They're not mine!"
Sarah Jessica raises three children, son James Wilkie, seven, and 10-month-old twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha, from a surrogate, with her actor husband Matthew Broderick.
Despite being left drained by her hectic lifestyle, Sarah Jessica loves being a mother.
She said in an interview with heat magazine: "Having my boy and now the twins, life is delightful. When I used to come to London, my first stop was Harvey Nichols, but now it's all about Hamleys toy shop. That store is amazing!
"The girls couldn't be more different. One is constantly looking around and reaching out, the other is very serious and slightly aloof."
Sarah Jessica has portrayed her fashionable alter-ego since 1998, and although she adores Carrie, the actress doesn't believe they are anything alike.
She said: "I don't feel like Carrie - my life is so different, my choices are different. But I love her. I love playing her and everything about her - the good, the flawed, the mistakes, the bad choices.
"I understand that people will blur the lines, but I feel very different. Which is probably why it works so well, because if she felt familiar to me, I would have bored of playing her a long time ago."
