Sarah Jessica Parker celebrated Cynthia Nixon’s “And Just Like That” directorial debut with a congratulatory Instagram post on January 6. “She did a beautiful job! We are so proud. As well, some familiar and much-beloved actors join in this week’s @justlikethatmax episode… Congratulations @cynthiaenixon on your AJLT directorial debut. We hope you enjoy it. X, SJ,” Parker wrote. Along her warm caption was a photo carousel including shots of Nixon standing behind the lens, Parker and Nixon conversing on-set, and some glam shots of the episode’s glorious wardrobe. Nixon extended her gratitude to her co-star, commenting, “Thanks, Sarah! And thanks for all the love and support. It helped more than you can know.”
Although their “Sex and the City” costar Kim Cattrall might not have considered Parker a friend, Nixon and Parker’s chummy offset relationship is well-documented. The two first acted together on-screen in the 1982 television movie “My Body, My Child” as teenagers, striking up a lifelong friendship. (Prior to the TV movie, the two recorded the vinyl version of “Little House on the Prairie” together, playing sisters. Commenting on a July 2021 Instagram post from New York magazine’s The Cut featuring a film still of the two, Nixon
wrote, via People, that Parker “has been one of my favorite acting partners for more than 40 years.” Parker, agreeing that the sentiment was mutual, sweetly added in the comments that “the memories of all my time with you sustain me. See you tomorrow at dawn for @justlikethatmax. x, your sister, your longtime friend, SJ.” True sisterhood is a beauty to witness!
