That Time Sarah Jessica Parker Panicked Over Losing Her "Carrie" Necklace IRL

Sarah Jessica Parker

Art doesn't always imitate life. Sometimes, it's the other way around. Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker.

In a recent conversation with New York Magazine editor-in-chief Adam Moss, the actress revealed that she experienced the same horror as her Sex and the City character when she thought she lost that famous "Carrie" nameplate necklace in real life. The story came up when Moss asked her what her most prized possession from the set of the show was. "I have the Carrie necklace still," she answered. "I love it and it's tucked away somewhere safe." But, she admitted, that hasn't always been the case.

Parker said one of her favorite SATC scenes was when Carrie almost loses the Patricia Field necklace ($270; in Paris. Not too long ago she says she experienced Carrie's panic firsthand when she tried to find the necklace and thought she had lost it. "I wish I could play that scene again because now that I've lived through it, I'd do a much better job," she said.

The 53-year-old also revealed that the necklace isn't the only piece she kept from her on-screen alter ego's coveted closet. "We have probably 95 percent of the clothing archived. I have it all," she said. "I don't touch it or wear it but all of that is really meaningful."
