It's been nearly two decades since Sex and the City ended, but Sarah Jessica Parker is still at the top of her game. Aside from launching her production company, Pretty Matches, the actress made a comeback as the infamous Carrie Bradshaw in HBO’s And Just Like That—which, FYI, got renewed for a third season.

While discussing her reasons for reprising the iconic role, Parker told Vogue in 2021, "The world of Carrie and her friends has always been about coming home, and I felt like we needed that right now...Sex and the City has always been about the friendships that sustain you. That, and the promise and potential this city holds."

Though we don’t have a release date for season three, we do know that filming will begin later this year. And with Parker's executive producing credit, it comes as no surprise that the actress has a whopping $200 million to her name. But what else contributed to Sarah Jessica Parker’s net worth? From her fashion line to her production company, keep reading for more details.

1. What Is Sarah Jessica Parker’s Net Worth?

Parker’s earnings are way higher than Carrie Bradshaw’s salary. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actress is currently worth $200 million. Thanks to Sex and the City and a string of successful film roles, she was named one of the highest-paid celebrities by Forbes in 2012. And while chatting with the outlet in 2022, the star and entrepreneur opened up about why she enjoys pursuing other business ventures, from her many fragrances to her SJP women's clothing brand.

Parker said, "Ever since I have had an opportunity outside of acting to be involved in other endeavors that were meaningful, I think really the first thing, when I started producing [Sex and the City], which was early on, I came to know very quickly how much I loved that work. I loved the hardest parts of it, I loved the most joyful parts of it and it was probably the gateway to recognizing that there would be other things that weren’t disconnected from that."

2. What Was Parker’s Salary on Sex and the City?

Though the actress appeared in several TV movies and shows since 1974, her career took off when she starred as Carrie in Sex and the City—often considered to be one of the most iconic female TV characters ever.

Celebrity Net Worth estimates that she made $50 million over the first three seasons (about $1 million per episode) and $147 million from the last three seasons (roughly $3.2 million per episode). That adds up to roughly $200 million total—and naturally, her sizable paychecks made her the highest-paid actress in TV history.

3. How Much Did Parker Earn from the SATC Films?

The 56-year-old star earned a whopping $15 million for the first film, which brought in $418.8 million at the box office. The sequel wasn’t nearly as successful, but Parker still got a pay upgrade, earning $20 million.

While chatting about the second film with New York Magazine, Parker revealed that she enjoyed working on the sequel. Per Vanity Fair, she said, “The experience of making the movie was supreme. We were in Morocco for almost two months. I found [Morocco] to be haunting, beautiful, unforgettable. Like no place I’ve ever been.”

4. What About Her Fragrance Collection?

In 2005, Parker released her first fragrance called Lovely. To promote the launch, she visited a Lord & Taylor store in New York—complete with more than 2,000 fans. As a result, the scent made more than $40,000 in that afternoon alone.

The actress revealed to Forbes that venturing into the fragrance industry was "creative, exciting, challenging and fulfilling." Following the success of Lovely, Parker released even more fragrances, including Covet, Dawn, Endless, Twilight and Stash.

While speaking with Vogue about her unisex blend, Stash, she revealed that it took about ten years to perfect. Parker said, “It’s on everything: my coats, my hats, my horrible winter parka gets its own force field of it.”

5. How Much Does She Make from Her Fashion Line?

In case you haven't heard, the actress also launched a clothing line called SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. Her earnings through the brand are unknown, but it features several accessories and shoes handmade in Italy.

Parker told Forbes, "I have a shoe company, so I’m on the floor of my shoe store and working with customers. For me, it has always come back to the connection with a person, a human being. As an actor, you are not put in front of people a lot. Your work doesn’t require them to be in the room, but when you’re in the retail business, which is sort of what this is to some degree, you have to try to make those connections with people so they understand why you’re doing what you’re doing."

6. What About Her Production Company?

In 2005, Parker partnered up with Alison Benson to launch Pretty Matches Productions, which aims to improve female representation in the media. They’re best known for the HBO series Divorce and the 2018 film, Here and Now.

While discussing the mission for Pretty Matches, Parker told Bust magazine, “What we’re hoping to do is to tell whole stories, stories about everybody. But we are keenly interested in the woman’s points of view in the story. We try to look after her and how her story is being told. We’re trying to find the stories that haven’t been told, that should be told, and that are marginalized or overlooked.”

7. What About Her Publishing Imprints?

Parker was the editorial director of SJP for Hogarth, a line of books that she launched in partnership with Molly Stern under the Crown Publishing Group's Hogarth imprint in 2017. Parker's first publication was a novel called A Place for Us, written by none other than Fatima Farheen Mirza, Riz Ahmed's wife.

Since then, however, Parker and Stern have launched a new imprint called SJP Lit. Per Deadline, she said, "I’m thrilled to be back in the business of books, in partnership once again with the great Molly Stern and the brilliant team she’s built at Zando. I make no secret of my devotion to books, the necessary role they play in my life and my endless admiration for authors and storytellers. So it’s simply a dream come true to have the opportunity to participate again in the discovery and support of extraordinary new voices."

8. Does She Have Real Estate?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, spent $34.5 million on two neighboring New York properties, which they combined to make a 14,000-square-foot mansion. And while they were working on their massive new home, they stayed in a nearby townhouse that they’d purchased and renovated for nearly $3 million. It wasn’t until 2020 that they sold this penthouse for $15 million. But in addition to their New York mansion, the couple also own some property in Iceland and two additional homes in the Hamptons.

Sounds like Sarah is definitely living her best life.
