Before she began dating Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker went on a few dates with John Kennedy Jr., whom she met while performing Off-Broadway. He "was a public domain kind of a guy," she told the New York Times in 1992 about why the romance didn't take. "We would go places where there wasn't a soul around, and the next day I'd see pictures of us there in the tabloids. … It's pathetic. When I die, they are going to say, 'Oh, yeah, Sarah once dated John Kennedy.'"
