In the early days of her career, actress Sarah Jessica Parker created a virtual body for herself.
Now, Parker has turned that idea into a visual story, where you can watch her go through various body movements in an effort to see how she feels.
The series, titled “Wake Up, Body,” will be available for free in March.
Parker, who plays Sarah in the FX show, tells BuzzFeed News that she wanted to make something that would make people feel “like they have a sense of their own body.”
She explained that she felt her body was “just not in alignment” with her own.
“I just didn’t feel my body in alignment with my self,” Parker says.
“It felt like I was on a roller coaster, but I wasn’t.”
Parker started her research by watching YouTube videos on body image.
After watching a series called “My Body is Not What It Seems,” Parker began thinking about what it meant to be a woman.
“This is what a woman’s body is like,” she says.
Parker says her inspiration came when she saw a series of videos by British comedian Lucy Lawless that had people talk about their body, including the way they moved their hips.
Parker thought, “If you can’t talk about what you’re doing, what are you doing?”
“I wanted to find out if I could get my body to align with my body, which was kind of the next step.”
She watched a lot of research about women’s body image and found that the research found that “being overweight is actually a very good thing.”
Parker wanted to see if she could create something that people would be able to relate to.
“The body is not what it seems,” she said.
“If I could just show that, then I was just able to see that it was possible.”
Parker has used different types of body images for her work, and the series will be different for each character.
For Sarah, she will be using images of her hips, which are wider than her shoulders, and her thighs.
Parker will be wearing tight dresses, which will be “more revealing than what we see in movies and TV.”
She will be in heels, which look “so different from what we typically see on television.”
Parker says the show will also focus on what it means to be an attractive woman in this country.
“We’re seeing more and more of our daughters and our wives being less beautiful than they were in the past,” she told BuzzFeed News.
“When they’re in their early twenties, their bodies don’t look good.”
Parker said that she also wanted to create a show where people could connect with Sarah’s experience of being fat and thin.
“To me, Sarah’s body looks like her self-expression,” Parker said.
She said she had “very specific body image goals that she was very proud of.”
“I’ve always had a really big issue with body image,” she continued.
“She was the first person to come up with a fat-shaming strategy that I think that I’m pretty proud of.
She’s the first woman to be able tell the world that fat is a choice and a shame.
I was so proud of that.”
