It all started when they gradually came to light the images of the filming of reboot in which both Parker and her companions Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who are also over five decades old, participate. However, the situation escalated when photographs of the actress were leaked eating with the presenter Andy Cohen (53), who has completely white hair. The result was a wave of offenses to the interpreter on social networks, pointing out not only her silver highlights but also the wrinkles on her face, to which he responded in a recent interview to an American fashion publication: “I sit with Andy Cohen and he has a full head of gray hair, which is great on him. Why is it okay for him and not for us?“.
In this way, the interpreter highlights the unrealistic expectations that society has about women, especially as they age. “We almost feel like people don’t want us to be where we are. As if they enjoy that our appearance hurts, whether we decide to age naturally (…) or if we do something that makes us feel better (…) What do they expect us to do? That we stop aging? That we disappear?“, has sharply finished who took the role of Carrie Bradshaw in 1998.

It was precisely Andy Cohen who commented at first on the criticism of the image of ‘SJP’ in the program that Drew Barrymore conducts daily, confessing that he was surprised by the double standards with which that situation was managed, since for several years he boasts of a hair covered with gray. On the sequel to the popular comedy, he assured that it seems ‘quite revolutionary’, as it shows ‘beautiful women living vibrantly in their 50s’, something he considers ‘a wonderful message’.
Gray hair is here to stay
Although for some time both Carolina de Monaco and Queen Letizia have worn their gray hair carelessly without abandoning the elegance that characterizes them, Hollywood had been slow to catch up with the acceptance of ‘silver’ manes. Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek and Gwyneth Paltrow are among the defenders of this trend beauty, although in its most discreet and concealed presentation. The great turning point came this summer in the celebration of the Cannes Film Festival, where Andy MacDowell showed for the first time her curly mane gray blending which, according to her, is inspired by Jane Fonda. A whole manifesto about the beauty of the mature and natural woman, a trend that is gradually conquering the red carpets.
