Ten years ago, I considered going into acting. Every Los Angeles native mulls it over at some point, and luckily I’ve never had to watch my weight, unlike almost all the women in Hollywood. That didn’t mean I had the looks to make it as a star though, and before I could send my headshots out, several people bluntly stated that I simply wasn’t pretty enough to thrive in that industry, so I didn’t even bother trying to get my name and face out there. Looking back, I wonder what could have been had I not listened to the noise. These five celebrities were told the same thing I was — that they weren’t aesthetically pleasing enough or lacked the physical attributes to be famous — and proved their critics wrong. Here are some women who didn’t let the negativity weigh them down or stop them from chasing their dreams.

Nearly ten years ago, HBO’s much-celebrated “Sex and the City” ended…kind of. We’ve had two SATC movies since then and still can’t seem to stop talking about it, and the program’s star Sarah Jessica Parker has taken on some eerily similar roles to series icon Carrie Bradshaw. SJP portrayed an urban woman trying to “have it all” in “I Don’t Know How She Does It” and just played a chic Vogue.com editor on “Glee,” but the actress says she’s done with Bradshaw-esque characters. All I can say to that is THANK GOD.

Just three episodes in, season four of Ryan Murphy’s “Glee” has had an impressive lineup of guest actors. All right, there have only been two celebrities of note — Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson — but audience members everywhere expected these two to move mountains. Hudson does that in episodes one and two. SJP, who appears in last night’s installment of “Glee,” misses the mark, which is bizarre if nothing else because of her long-run as New York City savant Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex and the City.”

Ever since Lena Dunham’s HBO program, “Girls” debuted earlier this year, people have been asking the million dollar question: how does the show compare to “Sex and the City,” which painted a much different portrait of New York City?
Expert Sarah Jessica Parker, who of course portrayed SATC heroine Carrie Bradshaw, has finally come forward with an answer.

Celebrities have the means and star power to outdo us in almost every way — and the same goes for their displays of affection for President Barack Obama. “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actress Mila Kunis recently said she has participated in the creation of “street-art-based stuff” for the president (a.k.a graffiti, what a rebel) and Sarah Jessica Parker just threw “the guy” a party, to name a few. Here are a couple of famous ladies who have gone the extra mile for Barry…and made his commoner fans look inadequate. Celebrities, just STOP!

Upon seeing Meghan McCain’s appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show,” I’d give anything to be friends with her–mainly because she screamed “Romney 2012!” outside of actress Sarah Jessica Parker’s $40,000 per person Obama fundraiser, which rightfully drew the ire of a lot of New Yorkers.

We can all rest easy now: Gloria Steinem is totally psyched about the fact that Sarah Jessica Parker is going to play her in a movie. A movie about porn.
