Brooklyn Heights resident/author Valerie Frankel snapped a few “Saskwatch-like” photos of Sarah Jessica Parker filming scenes for I Don’t Know How She Does It on Garden Place yesterday. Despite production staffers — who had no trouble taking EVERY SINGLE PARKING SPACE IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS THIS WEEK — shooing her off, Val returned with this report:
ValerieFrankel.com: The film adaptation of the funny novel “I Don’t Know How She Does It” is shooting today on my block. I snapped this photo of Sarah Jessica Parker AFTER I was surrounded by PAs and told to put my camera away. The photos I got BEFORE then are useless. She’s blocked by a tree and I wasn’t allowed to get closer. So, I have failed you, five blog readers, in my quest. In real life, she is even tinier than you’d think. Not Snooki tiny. About the size of a typical fifteen year old girl.
The entire scene consisted of SJP walking out of the brownstone with the pumpkins, saying maybe three lines of dialogue to a child actor, walking down the stoop (in very high heels), and “CUT.” SJP was then escorted five yards to a waiting big black SUV (the headlight and bumper are visible in the lower left corner of the photo), handed into it (like a real lady), flanked on either side by handlers. The driver sped in reverse down the block to her trailer parked on another block.
