SJP and Broderick 'fight over fame'

Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker wants to carry on making movies, but husband Matthew Broderick is "over the fame game" say sources.

The power couple wed in 1997 and after seventeen years of marriage, sources claim that all is not well.

While Matthew has stepped away from movies in recent years, Sarah, 49, has become more in demand. When her mega successful TV series Sex and the City ended in 2004 the popular franchise spawned two films, and made Sarah one of the most bankable names in cinema.

"Sarah wants to work on developing a third Sex and the City movie and to perform on Broadway, too. She's really focused on her career at the moment. Matthew, meanwhile, is kind of over the whole fame. It's a difficult situation but neither wants to back down," a source divulged to British magazine Grazia.

The couple are said to be locked away in their Irish cottage, in the town of Donegal, to discuss how to move forward.

The break was allegedly 52-year-old Matthew's idea, and saw the famous pair spend two weeks away talking things through and going for intimate dinners together.

"Right now, they feel like they're heading in different directions. They needed some time alone to work through their problems," added the source.

Rumours of a rift aren't new for the couple, and they've previously put on a united front. They are proud parents to James, 11, and five-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha.

Sarah recently enjoined a recurring role on musical show Glee, but currently has no new films in the pipeline while Matthew has four new projects currently in production.
