Sarah Jessica Parker appeared on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ and the topic got around to her trademark mole, which she had removed.
“I had a mole removed, which is far more invasive than hip replacement surgery, I assure you … and far more disruptive to your life,” she began.
“I just didn’t care for it,” she said of her decision. “I thought, you know I have about six free days where I can be bloody and stabbed and no one would care and honestly I didn’t think a thing about it and then apparently it turned into molegate,” she continued. Watch
“A woman came up to me on the beach, really upset, and she said, ‘I’m so sorry, I don’t know why you did that, that was your signature.’ And I said … well in my head I was like, ‘My mole was my signature? Isn’t my brain my signature?” Parker explained.
“Exactly, aren’t you your signature?” Dave responded.
“Then for about the next 15 minutes I couldn’t even hear anything anyone was saying to me because all I think, ‘well, I made a terrible mistake … can you put it back on?’” she added.
