I want to see her feet.
It’s not enough for Sarah Jessica Parker to talk about high heels destroying her feet. We need to see those gnarled, twisted, bony, callused hooves with the hammertoes, corns and bunions.
SJP shouldn’t get off easy, not with an entire generation of young girls teetering in their scary, sky-high pumps.
Not when there’s a growing trend in women having "stiletto surgery," surgically altering their feet – evening out their toes, injecting collagen into the balls of their feet, cutting off their little toes – so they can wear their Jimmy Choos more comfortably.
Remember when Jamie Lee Curtis stripped down and posed unairbrushed for More magazine in nothing but a sports bra and unflattering briefs?
That took real vagina.
If SJP really wants to warn women about the dangers of chasing men and taxis in strappy Manolo Blahniks then she’ll bare all.
Let's see all 10 of them. If they're all still there.
Parker and her aching, 47-year-old feet are getting a lot of press since she “opened up” in a recent interview with Net-a-Porter's digital magazine, The Edit, about the toll that years of nonstop strutting in Christian Louboutins took on her feet.
"I literally ran in heels," she explained. "I worked 18-hour days and never took them off.”
It wasn't until she twisted her ankle on the set of I Don't Know How She Does It that Parker realized just how much damage her heels had caused.
"I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn't be able to do. That bone there … You've created that bone. It doesn't belong there’ … It's sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, 'You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop – and don't put cheap shoes on us?' "
Parker’s confession was actually pretty lame. She didn’t swear off her five-inch addictions – just the really cheap, plastic-bottomed ones that she blames for tripping her up. She still plans to stuff her deformed feet into heels so she can stumble down the red carpet.
It’s odd that Parker’s sad, whiny feet spoke to her and didn’t mention that many of today’s outrageously high heels should carry warning labels, just like cigarettes and booze.
WARNING: High Heel Shoes May Cause Foot Pain, Bunions and Hammer Toes.
Please, SJP, rub those tired feet and bare your real sole(s).
Today’s teens, the ones who are wearing heels higher and at an earlier age than previous generations, need to catch a glimpse of those terrifying toes. Your deformed feet may be the only things standing between our daughters and a lifetime of hip and back pain.
But please do it soon. Eighth-grade prom is in three months.
