Sarah Jessica Parker (b. 1965)
Four-eyed Patty Greene, Square Pegs.
Fashion-plate star and perfume maven.
Smells Lovely, apparently.
Worked steadily in film, from L.A. Story (1991) to 'Til There Was You (1997), before blowing up on the small screen as sex-pert Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City (1998-2004).
Two-time Emmy-winner for Sex and the City--once as an actress, once as a producer.
Made Broadway debut, at age 11, in The Innocents (1976).
Starred as Broadway's Annie in Annie (1979).
Other Broadway credits include: Once Upon a Mattress and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Other key credits from awkward teen years include: Footloose and Girls Just Want to Have Fun.
Married to Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off), who, before you ask, is more of a former young adult star than former child star. (Translation: He was at least 18 when he first achieved stardom.)
Pre-Broderick, romantically linked to some of New York City's finest, including John F. Kennedy Jr. and Robert Downey Jr.
