Sarah Jessica Parker
This fall the actress (who turns 40 on March 25) will jump back to the big screen in the film version of the cable cult hit Strangers with Candy (costarring husband Matthew Broderick). Plus, she recently signed a two-year deal to develop and produce programming for Sex's home network, HBO.
And the fashion icon is also bottling her fame in a fragrance line for Coty this fall. Still, Parker's priority is raising son James Wilkie, 2. "I think (he's) really deserving of having a parent at home," she says.
Kim Cattrall has gone from promiscuous Samantha Jones on Sex to playing a PG-rated mom in this month's Michelle Trachtenberg movie Ice Princess. The actress, 48, also has taken on another challenge: playing a quadriplegic sculptor in the drama Whose Life Is It Anyway?, a play running in London's West End until April. "In rehearsal, I'd ask people to do everything for me. I became completely reliant on everyone around me. It's horrible," she says. "You can't scratch your nose or get hair out of your eyes."
