“Matthew and I come from a different time and place. When we were young people, all we ever wanted was to be good working actors. We didn’t think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream. It was to work in theater, to be around those people whose work I was in total awe of,” she said. ”I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”
Parker is getting ready to break her own boundaries in the upcoming HBO show, “Into the Fire.” The show is one that many New Yorkers can probably relate to as it deals with balancing married life with a budding career. Parker’s character is a talk-show host that moves her family to New York, which leaves her husband jobless. He’s unable to keep a job and their marriage is put to the test. She then begins having an affair.
“When we started working on this, it became clear that women in their 40s are having affairs, and if they’re not having an affair, then one of their best friends is,” Parker said. “How do we treat our marriages, and how can you be deeply involved and in love with someone else and also be in love with your husband? How are you a good mother? And what does it do to a marriage to be so deeply distracted elsewhere?”
