Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s son smoking worry

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick smoke in front of their son James.

Parker and Broderick worry their son may already have the “budding gene” of a nicotine addict.

At the screening of Broderick’s new film “Finding Amanda,” the actor told New York magazine: “I used to smoke cigarettes, and I still do, lately. I gave that up a long time ago, but every now and then I will fall off for a week.”

Broderick says his wife, “Sex and the City” actress Parker, is “worse than me on that.” And their 5-year-old son James Wilkie is “already curious. He’ll see a cigarette butt and say, ‘What is that? Why do people smoke?’ I can just see the little budding gene of a smoker in there.”
