Sarah Jessica Parker has broken her silence following the death of her boyfriend and Sex and the City co-star Willie Garson.
Garson died this week at age 57 after a battle with pancreatic cancer, sparking a flurry of tributes from friends and colleagues.
However, close friend Parker, 56, had waited to respond until Friday, when she posted on Instagram saying it was “unbearable” for her, as she shared a vintage photo of the two actors together.
“It’s been excruciating,” Parker’s post began, adding, “Sometimes silence is a statement.”

Long before they teamed up as best friends Carrie Bradshaw and Stanford Blatch, they had been true friends for over thirty years.
She continued, “Of gravity. The fear. The magnitude of the loss of a friendship of more than 30 years. A true friendship that made secrets possible, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual commitment to parenthood and all the heartbreak and joy that comes with it, triumphs, disappointments, fear, anger and spent years on sets (especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.”
The long post continued: “Willie. I will miss everything about you. And repeat our last moments together. I will reread every text from your last days and record our last phone calls.
“Your absence is a crater I will fill with blessings from these memories and all those that are still in niches yet to surface.
“My love and my deepest condolences and condolences to you, dear Nathen. You were and are the light of Willie’s life and his greatest achievement was being your daddy.
“These were his last words to me. “Large bracelets all around.” Yes. Godspeed Willie Garson. REST IN PEACE. X, SJ.’
