Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals She Was Fired From Two Animated Movies: 'Apparently I'm a Bad Ant'
By Rachel McRady
She may know how to rock a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels, but Sarah Jessica Parker doesn’t quite cut it as an animated animal. In an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday, the Divorce star, 51, opened up about two major animated films she was fired from.
“I was fired from Antz, yeah, that animated movie,” she told the shock jock. “Apparently I’m a bad ant. I had my own [voice[ but then they brought in Sharon Stone, so I was like, ‘Oh, you really did go a different [direction]… What was upsetting was the week before they fired me, they called me to tell me how great I was.”
The 1998 film also featured characters voiced by Woody Allen, Dan Aykroyd, Danny Glover, Gene Hackman, Jennifer Lopez, Christopher Walken, and Sylvester Stallone.
Parker also revealed that she was cut from the 2004 film Home on the Range, which featured the voices of Roseanne Barr, Steve Buscemi, Judi Dench, and Cuba Gooding Jr.
"I can't remember which movie fired me first. The first time they were like, ‘we're going in a different direction,' which I always heard as a joke and that one was a cow," she said.
Of course, the actress went on to star in one of the most successful TV shows of all time – Sex and the City – and has won four Golden Globes for her work.
