While it seems half of Hollywood is divorcing, one couple has been steadily flying under the radar for the last 19 years.

Sarah Jessica Parker (51) and Matthew Broderick (54) wed in 1997 and often considered one of the most rock solid couples in showbiz.

And with SJP taking on the lead role in her brand new HBO series Divorce (spearheaded by Irish writer and all around superwoman Sharon Horgan), they were naturally plagued with questions about how they make their marriage work.

"Listen to her. You know, that helps," Broderick told Entertainment Tonight.

"Give her a little present every now and then. Just be kind to her."

As for how she explored the dissapointment of a marriage ending for her performance onscreen, Parker said: "I was really interested in more stories of marriages and relationships and how different they all look.

"In particular, 'What does disappointment look like?' and 'How do you find humoru in failure?' and, some might say, the story of an American marriage. I'd say it's also an attempt at divorce."

Meanwhile, Dubliner Horgan was also out in force at the show's premiere in New York City on Tuesday night and if her current success with Sky One's Catastrophe is anything to go by, we're in for a treat with Divorce.

The 46-year-old said comedy is entering a new chapter with mostly female voices driving the conversation.

"Most of the TV I'm watching is either created by, starring or directed by women," she told Radio Times.

"At all the Emmy parties I went to, the people I was honing in on to tell I appreciated their work were ladies - Rachel Bloom, Tina Fey, Jill Soloway."

"They were everywhere. So certainly in the comedy world, it's looking pretty sweet."
