Carrie Bradshaw Would Like Her Desk Back

After Sex and the City ended its run on HBO in 2004, Carrie’s desk and laptop were donated to The Smithsonian museum. But then when they decided to do a movie and needed them back. (I don’t understand why they would need her laptop back — if she really is a successful writer with a few books under her belt, you would think that she could afford a MacBook Air.) The Smithsonian was rather reluctant to hand over the props, and Sarah Jessica Parker had to get involved: “After the series finale The Smithsonian called us to ask for the desk and laptop from the TV show. They only released it back [for use for the film] after I made several personal calls. When it was suggested I use a replica because no one would know it a replica, I said ‘I will know.’ We had to have that desk — as a writer, it’s an extension of you.” []
