"I don't have the constitution for Twitter," she explains. "It's a boneyard, a feast of vitriol. I just don't want to participate in it."


Instead, Parker says fans can connect with her on Instagram, a social media platform where she believes "people tend to be more civilized. And they can disagree and have objections, but I don't find it as mean-spirited a community."

The fashion designer also talked about her new role in the HBO series Divorce.

"It's taken me a long time to find anybody who I thought had as much potential as [Sex and the City's] Carrie Bradshaw, who was as complicated, human, layered, and objectionable yet understandable, relatable yet foreign," she says about her character, Frances. "People think she was a second skin for me, but she wasn't. I didn't know her at first. She was different from me as anybody I'd ever played or known. So I feel like Frances is equally as interesting and unknown to me."
