Sarah Jessica Parker has admitted she was shocked by some people's reactions to that Instagram post speculated to be about Sex and the City 3.

The actress caused mass excitement earlier this year with a teasing picture which many took to mean an announcement of SATC 3 was on its way.

However, SJP had actually been alluding to her new shoe line with the image, not a continuation of Carrie Bradshaw and co's adventures.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan US, she said: "Oh my god. When I posted that picture and people were in a rage at me, I was shocked. They were convinced I had been taunting them. I'm not that clever! And to what end would I relish dangling this idea and then saying there's no movie?

"I'm still finding people and being like, 'No @BoobityBopBeep! Why would I hurt you?' I've never been a mean girl."

As strange as it may seem, this is actually SJP's first EVER cover for Cosmopolitan US. We know, right?! This woman is the embodiment of a Cosmo girl!

Sarah told the mag that she doesn't view herself as a feminist, instead she's a humanist.

"I'm enormously appreciative of the work that my mother's generation did," she explained. "We are the beneficiaries of a lot of disappointment, heartache, discouragement, and misunderstanding.

"But I see a lot of people trying to sort out their roles. People of colour, gays, lesbians, and transgenders who are carving out this space. I'm not spitting in the face or being lazy about what still needs to be done—but I don't think it's just women anymore. We would be so enormously powerful if it were a humanist movement."

The 50-year-old - who is a mother of three - also spoke about what she feels is the most pressing political issue right now.

"Equality in pay. Paid sick leave. The thing that would change people's lives maybe more than anything, assuming that we maintain access to health care, is child care.

"If I could guarantee every mother who is working two, three jobs that she had good child care that didn't make her anxious all day—people would probably work in more efficient ways. How many times do you hear a wealthy person get asked, How do you do it all? If I'm asked that question one more time… I'm like, are you kidding me? Ask someone who looks like she's about to drop, How are you doing? How are you managing?"
