The script for an HBO drama/comedy series titled Sex and the City was sent to Parker. The show's creator, Darren Star, wanted her for his project. Despite some doubts about being cast in a long-term television series, Parker agreed to star. After five nominations, in 2004, Parker won an Emmy Award for her lead role. Parker said in 2006 that she "will never do a television show again".
After Sex and the City ended in 2004, rumors of a film version circulated. It was revealed that a script had been completed for such a project. At the time, Parker said such a film would likely never be made. Two years later, preparations were resumed, and the film was released on May 30, 2008. A sequel to the movie, Sex and the City 2, was released in 2010.
Parker released her own perfume in 2005, called "Lovely". In March 2007, Parker announced the launch of her own fashion line, "Bitten",in partnership with discount clothing chain Steve & Barry's. The line, featuring clothing items and accessories under $20, launched on June 7, 2007, exclusively at Steve and Barry's.
In July 2007, following the success of "Lovely," Parker released her second fragrance "Covet." In 2007, Parker was a guest on Project Runway for the second challenge. In 2008, Covet Pure Bloom was released as continuous series of Covet. In February 2009, as part of the "Lovely" collection, Parker launched a series of three new fragrances called "Dawn", "Endless" and "Twilight".

Parker was romantically involved with actor Robert Downey, Jr. from 1984 until 1991. They met on the set of Firstborn. Downey had a drug problem, which affected their relationship. Parker has said, "I believed I was the person holding him together."
Parker is a prominent member of the Hollywood's Women's Political Committee. She is UNICEF's Representative for the Performing Arts; in 2006, she traveled to Liberia as a UNICEF celebrity ambassador.
She said, "It's a place that gets little or no attention, so we're going to try and bring some attention to it". She is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for the United States.
Parker appeared in the premiere episode of the U.S. version of Who Do You Think You Are? on March 5, 2010, where she discovered she had ancestors in the California Gold Rush of 1849-50 and in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.

Before glamorizing the single life in her Manolo Blahniks, Sarah Jessica Parker couldn't land a role as the "pretty girl." Then Steve Martin cast her as his bubbly lover SanDeE* in L.A. Story, breaking her '80s trend as the frizzy-haired sidekick.
As a child, Parker nabbed the title role in the Broadway musical Annie. Years later, she met actor Matthew Broderick; they married and had a son, James Wilkie.
She is most famed, however, for playing Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's Sex and the City, collecting a full shelf of awards for her efforts as star and executive producer and turning her image into a worldwide brand of perfumes, clothing lines and endorsement deals.
After pulling the plug on SATC in 2004, Parker reunited with Bradshaw and Co. for 2008's record-breaking Sex and the City movie (and its 2010 sequel). In June 2009, Parker and Broderick welcomed twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha, with the help of a surrogate.
