Sarah Jessica Parker is having trouble coming to grips with the death of “Sex and the City” co-star Willie Garson.
Parker addressed his death in an Instagram post by co-star Chris Noth, who shared a photo of Garson and Parker.
“Thank you dearest Chris. I’m not ready yet. Xxx,” she wrote Wednesday in the comments, a sentiment that has earned more than 9,000 likes. Parker has not formally discussed Garson’s death in an interview or social media post of her own.
