Despite starring in a number of films in the 80s and early 90s, it wasn’t until 1998 when Sex and The City first aired that the actress became a global superstar.

And the 48-year-old is grateful that it took until she reached her 30s to achieve it.

“The real success happened after I was grown, and that saved me,” she told the February US edition of InStyle magazine.

“I was appreciative of all of it, and continue to be – my gosh. I don’t think my success has ever defined me; it’s just this thing that I carry around and then shepherd in a hopefully graceful way, you know?”

Sarah Jessica won four Golden Globe Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, and two Emmy Awards for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO series.

And the actress believes her success could be down to a saying she lives her life by.

“The Golden Rule – do unto others as you would have them do unto you – that’s my religion, my dogma,” she added.

“As soon as my son could recite it back, I’d repeat it to him.”

With the series spanning two highly successful films, the media and the fans of the show are always desperate to know if there will be a third installment.

During the interview, the mother-of-three admits a reunion is possible.

“A part of me thinks there is one last chapter to tell,” she said.

“But timing is a peculiar thing. It isn’t a decision that can wait forever. I don’t want to have to wear muumuus!”
