In a recent interview with Allure the “Sex and the City” star commented on the virality of photos from last summer of her having lunch in New York City with Bravo’s Andy Cohen. In them the actress can be seen dining al fresco sporting her natural hair color and gray roots.

“It became months and months of conversation about how brave I am for having gray hair,” Parker told the magazine. “I was like, please please applaud someone else’s courage on something!”

Parker then stated she doesn’t judge anyone else’s decisions about how they present themselves and that she does still color her hair.

“I don’t think there’s a right or a wrong way to have a relationship with aging, living, time spent on earth,” she said. “Mine is that there are a million things I want to do with my free time, and none of them have to do with reserving [what I look like] now, or trying to go back to 15 years ago.”

While the actress does keep this positive outlook she claimed the negativity and questions about her looks can get to her and that “some of it hurts for a minute, it smarts.”

Parker also had something to say about men often being applauded for letting their grays grow and how when women do it they get comments about being “brave” for going natural. She noted how in the photographs Cohen and his head of “beautiful gray hair” did not get commented on while he was sitting right next to her.

In March HBO announced the renewal of Parker’s “Sex and the City” sequel series “And Just Like That.” She can next be seen in this year’s “Hocus Pocus 2.”
