Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed a producer once sent her a treadmill out of concern she would not be in good enough shape for her movie role.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Sarah Jessica Parker would “run like a lunatic” with her Discman in tow during the Nineties.

The 50-year-old Sex and the City actress has been in extraordinary shape throughout her adult life.

Two decades ago Sarah would have most likely been spotted out exercising while listening to C+C Music Factory’s 1990 mega hit Everybody Dance Now via her CD player.

“Just picture me running with a Discman,” she smiled during an interview on Sirius XM’s My Favorite Song With John Benjamin Hickey. “I would run to [the track] the summer preceding me leaving to go to Iowa, and then ultimately go to Vegas and New York to shoot Honeymoon In Vegas. I would very diligently go out every single day and run like a lunatic to this song. And then when I went to Iowa, on the treadmill, I would continue to run to the song. And then we went to Vegas and I had a treadmill also in my room and I would get up every morning and run."

Her treadmill was acquired in a shocking manner, as Sarah revealed production staff for 1992 flick Honeymoon in Vegas sent her the exercise equipment out of fear she would be out of shape for the movie.

"I was about to do Honeymoon In Vegas and before that I was off to do another movie in Iowa and the producer of Honeymoon In Vegas was very concerned about me being fit for Honeymoon In Vegas so they sent a treadmill to Iowa,” she explained.

Nowadays Sarah prefers to keep fit by trying out several different types of exercises, including yoga.

The mother of three also incorporates her kids into fitness.

“I live in New York City, so I walk incredibly quickly. I run up and down stairs with twins — who are both over 25 pounds — in each arm,” she told Q magazine. “I occasionally get to work out with my trainer, and I do anything she tells me to do from jumping up and down on boxes to using ballet barres. She forces me to do things with my body that I’m not entirely positive I can do.”
