Sarah Jessica Parker collects old sinks.

The 'Divorce' actress admits she has a fascination with the classic kitchen appliance and stores them in her basement.

She revealed: ''I collect old sinks - I'm dead serious. I particularly love Belfast sinks, if I can find them. I keep them in my basement and have quite a decent collection.''

Although Sarah Jessica lives in New York with her husband Matthew Broderick and their three children, James, 14, and seven-year-old twins, Marion and Tabitha, she has also got a love for London, which started from a young age.

She explained to ES magazine: ''I first came to London when I was 11 and rehearsing for a play directed by Harold Pinter. I'd watch the Changing of the Guard with my father and one day, I took my cardigan off because it was so warm and draped it over the gate of Buckingham Palace. I went back the next day and it was still there. My dad exclaimed: 'Look how civilised the people of London are - they're so honest and honour-bound!' Then I said: 'Some day when I'm a grown-up, I'll live in London because that's where grown-ups live.'''

And whenever the 51-year-old star in in London, she always makes sure she sees her 'Did You Hear About The Morgans?' co-star Hugh Grant.

She said: ''I always try to see Mr Hugh Grant when I'm in town. We usually have spaghetti bolognese with mutual friends at Claridge's.''
