Five Dry Years

[CDAN] This A list movie actress who got her start way back in the day on television and then did some more along the way, let it slip the other day that she and her always a B list (for one role in particular) movie actor husband have not had sex in almost five years. It is kind of ironic if you think about it.

SOLVED!

It’s Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick! Source: CDAN

We believe that Sarah Jessica got her start on Broadway ( in the musical Annie), not TV. Matthew, of course, is best known for his role in Ferris Beuller’s Day Off. And, as Jeannie pointed out, it’s ironic that this blind is about Sarah Jessica, because her biggest role to date was on Sex and the City.

Most of you got this one right. Avox1407 and Becky12 were first. Congratulations!

    Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and The City…ironic) and Matthew Broderick.

    SJP and Matthew Broderick?

  • ImThinking

    Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick seems to be a reasonable guess or

  • cookiepie1

    I agree and only wish I could think of something punny to say.

  • Delphinium

    Yep SJP for sure. How old are their kids?

    • yepimbored

      Their son is 8 and the twins are 2.

      • PandoraWolf

        I don’t remember the reasons they put forth for using a surrogate (wasn’t it?), but maybe it’s because they REALLY weren’t trying to conceive naturally because that would involve *shudder* sex.

  • khaki

    SJP is an excellent guess but didn’t she get her start on Broadway?

  • LiveForToday

    Is Sarah really A- List? Wow…our standards have gone down hill IMMENSELY. That being said I hope someone comes up with a better guess…but other than the hollywood status, the clues fit….wayyyy back could mean back to Square Pegs for SJPs TV role.

    • Mmmmyeahyouwantme

      That’s what I thought…SJP is A list?? No way. Everything else fits.

    • lezgurl79

      SJP is A List. She is one of the highest paid actresses right now, http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2011/07/06/angelina-jolie-and-sarah-_n_891079.html

      This is sooo SJP and Matt. The “. It is kind of ironic if you think about it.” quote is so in reference to Sex and the City because she was getting laid all the time in that show!

    • PandoraWolf

      I wish there was some way to officially rate these actors/celebrities/what not, like with some kind of mathematical formula, because SJP as A-list is depressing. If she’s A, what the h*** is, say DeNiro? AAA+++?

      “B” list…Bueller? Bueller?

    • irishmarty

      IA, I don’t consider her to be “A” list. For that matter, I don’t consider Matthew to be “B” List. I would grade them each a notch downward.

      • CoCoJo

        Matthew has been the STAR of many Broadway successes. He has won Tony awards. He is definitely B list.

        Sarah is consistently cast as the lead in her bad movies. She is always working and tonnes of women saw the Sex movies regardless of whether they were any good. She is so recognizable that Clairol (or whatever) entrusts their image with her.

        A list is about status, not talent or like-ability.

      • Rock90210

        Thank you CoCoJo. Well said.

      • Rock90210

        By the way the Broderick and SJP doesn’t really make any sense anyway – what “One” role would make him “B” forever. Ferris? He’s done a ton of stuff. So it can’t be them.

        If you go back and look at old solved posts you can see many times where we all get caught up with one idea and totally miss the answer.

  • Sanguine

    SJP and Matthew Broderick. He always seems so detached when they pose for photos at events and there were those cheating rumours.

  • Scorpio13

    Ditto on the SJP and MB guess. The photo reminds me of Carrie and Mr. Big in the last Sex And The City (2) Movie.

  • foofoogirl

    SJP tied for #1 on Forbes highest paid celebs and opens movies so I would say she is A list.

  • mymysmama

    i hate to say it but yes, its sjp and mb…

  • pookie

    Could be Annette Benning and Warren Beatty. She started in television and the one role in particular could be that movie he did that is considered the biggest box office bomb ever. Considering he was a playboy, that would be ironic. Considering he is in his 70’s, maybe not that uncommon.

  • dorothea

    SJP it was on a site today

  • malkatz

    Agreed on SJP.

  • jeannie

    Agree with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. Ironic because her biggest role to date is from Sex and the City.

  • lindseyann

    This is so obvious.

  • sunstamp

    “It is kind of ironic if you think about it.” SJP’s show “Sex and the City”. IRONIC.

  • Chantal

    And isn’t Matthew supposed to be gay or on the downlow?

  • yepimbored

    I’m on board with the MB and SJP guess. That may explain why she and Matthew had a surrogate to have more children. Then again it could be because of her age.

  • apple martini

    SJP and Broderick (the “role in particular” being Ferris Bueller, “ironic” being because of Sex and the City) fit, it just nags me that it says she got her start on television. She was actually doing Broadway/stage work. She did a show on CBS early on, maybe that’s what it’s talking about.

  • cocobeannns

    Agree with the SJP and MB guess… SJP is most definitely A list.

  • seashore

    oh well. maybe they’ve accepted it’s over between them sexually and romantically but want to stay a unit for their kids. Not unusual.

  • phyllis

    That’s sad if they are both straight, have not had sex for five years and stay together for the kids. It is also sad if one or both are gay and they are staying together for the children.

    Ultimately more harm than good is done if parents are living a lie, pretending for the children.

  • therock

    Sex and the City, kind of romantic, Its definitely SJP, tell her I’d knock the dust off for her!

  • ItsSoColdinTheD

    Aw :(- I like these two!
    Maybe that’s why those 2 year old babies arrived via surrogate.
    Is he even straight?
    I’m gonna have to read this post to my husband who thinks s*x only once a month is redic!

  • newbatgirl

    I think when SATC was on TV up to around the time the first movie came out, SJP could have been considered A List. She wrecked that status by making the second movie! :)

  • Ralphie

    Another sad but obvious one! Good job Avox (is that a Hunger Games ref?) and Becky!

  • Jordan Joelle

    BG
    SJP was on a TV show called “Square Pegs” that ran for a season or two in the early 80’s. She was about 16/17. She got an introduction on Broadway but did get her start, on TV.

    • Jordan, SJP replacing Andrea McArdle in the starring role of Annie in 1979 was a big deal. Square Pegs only ran for one year, in 1982. Annie was first. Annie was her start. Love, Ace

  • Come on… SJP is def A List, because A List means she can “open a picture” to use the old Hollywood jargon. The first SATC movie did 400 million at the box office. She is A List for life now.

    Loving these reveals! Hope we get to hear the truth about Beyonce’s baby too.
