Sarah Jessica Parker has admitted her daughters Marion and Tabitha have been eyeing up her empire.
The ‘Sex and the City’ star can’t believe seven-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha, whom she has with her husband Matthew Broderick, are already thinking about ways to take over her empire because they have “designs” thought out that they’re itching to put into practice to boost the company’s success.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: “Apparently one of my daughters is plotting to take over mama’s company. She has designs.”
However, the 51-year-old actress isn’t overly surprised as one of the twins is obsessed with fashion.
She explained: “I think she really likes being bossy. No… I think she likes organising things and kind of putting things into action. If I walk on the stairs or they see me getting dressed, they have opinions about what I’m wearing. They don’t offer up design ideas yet, but I’m sure that’s all moments away.”
The blonde beauty wants to drill it into her children that it’s OK to fail when it comes to business, even though it’s disheartening because of the other people involved.
She said: “The failures are really disappointing, because there are other people involved. It’s not yourself as much as how it affects other people, but hopefully you can bring those people along on other opportunities and be smarter in some way in the future.”
And Sarah knows exactly what it’s like to get shot back when it comes to work, as she was fired from both 1998 movie Antz and 2004’s Home on the Range, despite having done “many sessions” of voice recordings for them.
She said recently: “I was fired from Antz, that animated movie. And I was fired from Home on the Range, that other animated movie. Apparently I was a bad ant. I can’t remember which movie fired me first. The first time they were like, ‘we’re going in a different direction,’ which I always heard as a joke and that one was a cow.”
