You know when you think you understand the world and then something comes to shatter it all, like Neo in the Matrix.

That’s what Sarah Jessica Parker has just done about Sex and the City. So, as Morpheus gave Neo the choice of red or blue pill. You take the blue pill, the story ends. You take the red pill, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

In an interview with Chris Hardwick, the actress, who played the show’s main character Carrie Bradshaw, revealed that she’s not sure any of the character’s apart from her own were actually REAL.

In the show, Carrie is a sex columnist and along with her three friends – Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda – they explore Manhattan’s dating scene, chronicling the mating habits of single New Yorkers.

That’s right, she thinks that they may have all been a narcissistic figment of her imagination.

Parker said: 

I used to wonder if Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda were real. That that wasn’t just her column.

They’re such perfectly archetypal characters. So you’re writing a column about sexual politics and observations of female-male, primarily, heterosexual relationships, so you’re picking one type. You’re saying, ‘This type is this and this,’ and then you complicate it more, like any good writer does. So I’m not entirely sure they are real … What we are seeing isn’t necessarily what happened in New York.

Mind. Blown.

If anyone is going to understand the complexity of the show, it’s going to be Carrie herself.

Now I feel like I need to re-watch the whole thing in this new light.
