Thanks to Sarah Jessica Parker, you'll never watch reruns of Sex and the City the same way again.

The actress, who is currently starring in the new HBO drama Divorce, was a guest on the Nerdist podcast recently. While there, Parker shared a theory about the show and the relationship between her character, Carrie, and her squad.

Parker confessed that she thought Carrie's best friends on the show might all be figments of her imagination.

"I used to wonder if Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were real...that it was her column," Parker told host Chris Hardwick on the podcast.

"They're such perfectly archetypal characters. So you're writing a column about sexual politics and observations of female/male, primarily, heterosexual relationships, so you're picking one type," she explained.

"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," Parker said. Through their imagined stories, Parker explained that Carrie was able to explore issues relevant to her weekly sex column.

"We don't know if any of the things that happened are real because she's just writing a column every week...what we are seeing isn't necessarily what happened in New York City."
