New York: Sarah Jessica Parker has denied reports that she was complaining when she came to Manhattan federal court for jury duty, insisting that she never shirks any of her civic responsibilities.
The ‘Sex and the City’ star was heard complaining to another prospective panelist about the better things she had to do than serving at the court, reports the New York Post.
"My daughter is at home sick," she reportedly said.
Parker, 46, also said that she had an "international flight" the next day and fretted that the fraud case being tried might last more than two days.
She then flipped out at a reporter and photographer outside the courthouse during a break, screaming, "Leave me alone!"
In a phone interview afterward, Parker however denied having travel plans and insisted she had been "ready, willing and able to serve."
She also noted she "never once raised" her hand before adding, "I don’t shirk any of my civic responsibilities."
