Sarah Jessica Parker Has Got Issues With Working Out

This week she hinted Sex And The City part three could actually be happening and now she's confessed she hates exercise. Yep, Sarah Jessica Parker just got a whole lot more interesting.

The 49-year-old actress admitted she cannot "bear" exercise and loves her food to audience members during a talk at the Cannes Lion film festival.

While you may think SJP spends hours on the cross-trainer, it turns out that really isn't the case.

"I work out for a sum total of 22 minutes," she said. "Because that's all I can bear."

This isn't the first time Sarah has spoken out about diet and size. She recently told Good Housekeeping magazine a body like hers shouldn't be "an example" for other women.

"No real woman should look to any woman in this industry as an example," she said. "It's simply not applicable because of the enormous number of advantages we have.

"Women... should be reminded to be healthy rather than to be a size zero. I'm not going to kid you: Money changes everything. I'm fortunate enough to have things like private trainers and yoga classes. I realise that."

Jessica isn't alone in her negative feelings towards exercise. Brit actress Keira Knightley has also confessed she despises working out.

"I joined a gym but I hated it," she once said. "But it had lovely water. It had all cucumber chopped up into it.

"So I sat there in my work out gear sipping my nice water watching everyone else working out. I did it in the end. I just went on a cross trainer and had someone yelling at me telling me to squat. But I hated it."
