Sarah Jessica Parker has a seriously wacky theory about Sex and the City.

Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw for six seasons on the hit HBO series, revealed a strange yet plausible theory about the show's leading ladies.

During an interview with Chris Hardwick's Nerdist podcast, Parker said that she believes Bradshaw's famous friends might have been nothing more than a "literary conceit."

The Divorce actress told the host that she would often wonder if "Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were real."

"They're such perfectly archetypal characters," she said.

"So you're writing a column about sexual politics and observations of female/male, primarily, heterosexual relationships, so you're picking one type. You're saying, 'This type is this and this,' and then you complicate it more, like any good writer does. So I'm not entirely sure they are real."

Could SJP's theory be true? Surely not ...

Parker said that perhaps the women, played by Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis, were merely figments of Carrie's imagination, or the reimagining of whatever column she was writing that week.

"What we are seeing isn't necessarily what happened in New York City," she added.
