Helping a son prepare for his high school sports team is a proud moment for any father. But when Gilles Marini's teenage son decided to join the football team, there was just one problem: His father had "no clue" how the game was played.
"I have no idea about [American] football, no clue!" Marini, 37, told PEOPLE with a laugh while attending Wednesday's Los Angeles premiere of The World's End with son Georges.
"For me, I'm like, 'I want to play 45 minutes straight like soccer,' but it doesn't work that way, and I'm learning a little bit more, but he would beat me, big time."

Sure, everybody knows Carrie Bradshaw – Sarah Jessica Parker in the HBO phenom that kept Sunday nights ablaze from 1998 till 2004, then again in a movie that was hot and a sequel that was not.
Now headed for the small screen is The Carrie Diaries, based on the 2010 prequel by Sex author Candace Bushnell.
The pilot for the CW network will star AnnaSophia Robb, shown here for the first time in costume (designed by Sex and the City and Gossip Girl's Emmy-winning Eric Daman) as the young Carrie.

Hold the Cosmos – for now, at least.
That's the word from Sarah Jessica Parker, who says that a sequel to Sex and the City: The Movie is still in the talking stage.
Her announcement came just one day after costar Kim Cattrall seemed to hint that the follow-up film was a done deal. ("Yes, there will [be another movie] ...," she said on a British TV show. "We will do the sequel next summer.")
But Parker insists Cattrall's words were a bit premature.
"I'm thrilled to know Kim is excited but all the deals are not yet done," Parker said in a statement to Access Hollywood. "With the wind on our heels, we hope to make it a reality."

After months of speculation, Kim Cattrall says that there will be a sequel to this year's hugely popular Sex and the City: The Movie.
The actress appeared on Britain's The Paul O'Grady Show, with guest-host Spice Girl Melanie Brown.
Asked point blank, "Will there be a sequel?" Cattrall replied emphatically, "Yes there will!"
A spokesperson for New Line Cinema says the studio is "in negotiations for a sequel."
Cattrall, 52, talked more about sequel plans at Cosmopolitan's Ultimate Women of the Year Awards in London, where she received the "Ultimate Icon" honor. "The fans keep saying, 'Yes, one more,'" Cattrall told reporters. "The movie was so much fun to do and be part of again. I hope we're going to do it again."

Don't put away those Manolos just yet!
HBO executives say they are "absolutely interested" in making follow-up to the hugely popular Sex and the City movie.
"Everybody came away feeling very excited by [the first film's] quality and its success, so that always invites the possibility of a continuation," HBO co-president Richard Plepler told PEOPLE Thursday after the network's session at the Television Critics Association's press tour.
Will it actually happen?

Though the wardrobe budget for Gilles Marini in Sex and the City wouldn't cover a subway ride, the handsome, French actor-model – who appears as Samantha's usually nude Malibu neighbor, Dante, in the movie – showed up in New York's Rockefeller Plaza Thursday morning decked out in a well-tailored, dark suit.
"I am so blessed," Marini, 32, said on the Today show. "It's overwhelming ... I mean, look at this."
He was referring to the crowd that had gathered outdoors to see his interview.

The record-breaking $55.7 million earned by Sex and the City on its opening weekend – the most ever made by an R-rated comedy – not only stunned industry observers but has also taken its star and producer Sarah Jessica Parker by surprise.
"To be No. 1 is unexpected," Parker, 43, told PEOPLE at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards. "Beyond that, it would be greedy for us to think about, talk about" how much it might make.
The weekend's second-place movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, has so far taken in $216.9 million. This weekend, it trailed Sex with a still impressive $46 million at the box office, according to industry estimates.
As for fans' reactions to her movie, which comes four years after the adored HBO series finished a run that began in 1998, Parker says she is pleased. "They had to have barricades in New York for the audiences," she notes. "People have been really enthusiastic, people have been really nice."

The New York premiere may have kicked off at 6 p.m., but the cast and crew of Sex and the City: The Movie partied 'til three in the morning, with two after parties!
After Sex's big New York homecoming at the Radio City Music Hall and an after party at the Museum of Modern Art, the film's inner circle – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Jason Lewis and director Michael Patrick King – celebrated the night away at an exclusive after-after party at The Carlyle hotel.
Around midnight, with husband Matthew Broderick, Parker escaped the MOMA, arriving at the hotel's legendary Bemelmans Bar, which she requested (she had her honeymoon at The Carlyle in 1997). They intimately enjoyed cocktails and mini-burgers before the arrival of some of Parker's closest friends and colleagues.

The Sex and the City foursome created a fashion and film sensation on the pink carpet outside New York's Radio City Music Hall for the U.S. premiere of their movie Tuesday night.
"The best part about making the movie was being back with the women on the set all day every day, and the best part about tonight is being here ... with the fans," Sarah Jessica Parker said as the crowds squealed and waved around her.
Parker wore a glamorous Nina Ricci gown, complemented with dazzling Fred Leighton jewels, as did Kristin Davis, who donned Donna Karan and 19th Century diamonds. Cynthia Nixon chose a Narciso Rodriguez dress, and Kim Cattrall embodied her inner "Samantha" in a low-cut, beaded Vivienne Westwood cocktail dress.

Strap on your Manolos: Sex is in the air outside Radio City Music Hall.
Starting early Tuesday morning, fans lined up around the pink carpet for a glimpse of their favorite Sex and the City characters – and fashions.
