Sarah Jessica Parker shooting scenes in Boston

"Sex and the City" siren Sarah Jessica Parker filmed exterior scenes for her set-in-NYC flick "I Don't Know How She Does It" at several locations scattered throughout Boston on Wednesday, March 9, with locales including Post Office Square, Government Center, the Public Garden and the Boston Common in front of the Massachusetts State House.

The flick, co-starring Christina Hendricks from 'Mad Men" fame and also featuring Kelsey Grammer, Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear and Olivia Munn, is based on Allison Pearson's book following a fictional high-powered finance exec and working mom Kate Reddy as she navigates through the complexities of life.

Think Bridget Jones with a husband and two kids.

Parker, who stars as the female narrator Kate, was spotted with director Douglas McGrath in the Boston Common late on Wednesday. Hendricks, who could easily be SJP's red-headed Miranda replacement in the film, was filming outside of the State House.

Filming is scheduled to continue at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace on Thursday March 10, but may be delayed because of an expected rainstorm.

Last July, crews with the made-in-Boston flick "What's Your Number?" with Anna Faris and Chris Evans shot a wedding reception scene at the 1.7-acre park at Post Office Square in Boston's Financial District. For the Faris movie, set designers worked with the already stunning green space that sits atop an underground parking garage and has been named one of the best squares and plazas in the world by PPS (project for public spaces). The trees in the square were covered with white, paper lanterns and the scene included a live band and Faris wearing a stunning pink bridesmaid gown.

Parker's "I Don't Know How She Does It" film is slotted to hit theaters in 2012.

Anna Faris photos from 'What's Your Number?' set

Anna Faris, on set of the romantic comedy "What's Your Number?" at the 1.7-acre park at Post Office Square in Boston's Financial District, filmed a wedding reception scene with a certain male co-star over the weekend.

Yep, she's making out with Sudbury native Chris Evans.

Set designers worked with the already stunning green space that sits atop an underground parking garage and has been named one of the best squares and plazas in the world by PPS (project for public spaces). The trees in the square were covered with white, paper lanterns and the scene included a live band and Faris wearing a stunning pink bridesmaid gown.

There were two overnight shoots slotted, one beginning at 3 p.m. Friday, July 9 until 6 a.m. Saturday, July 10 and the second beginning 3 p.m. Saturday, July 10 until 6 a.m. Sunday, July 11. Production was affected on Saturday because of the torrential rain and crews filmed on Sunday night to capture the entire scene.

The made-in-Boston film features three wedding scenes, ranging from a blue-collar bash to a big-fat Italian wedding to a young/corporate soiree, scheduled for the film and Faris' onscreen sister, and homegrown talent, Ari Graynor is apparently the bride to be.

Meanwhile, Faris and a crew of extras caused a minor delay on the MBTA's Red Line T on Sunday, according to a blog post here. Turns out that the doors closed on "The House Bunny" star while filming and she ended up taking an impromptu ride to Porter Square.

Many of the movie locations from "What's Your Number?" are featured in Loaded Gun Boston's new star maps guide for made-in-Boston movie buffs.

'What's Your Number?' filming at Post Office Square

Crews with the locally shot romantic comedy "What's Your Number?" with Anna Faris and Chris Evans are setting up an elaborate set at the 1.7-acre park at Post Office Square in Boston's Financial District, at the intersection of Congress and Milk streets.

Set designers worked with the already stunning green space that sits atop an underground parking garage and has been named one of the best squares and plazas in the world by PPS (project for public spaces). The trees in the square are covered with white, paper lanterns and the scene slotted to film from Friday, July 9 through Sunday, July 11 will include live music.

There are two overnight shoots slotted, one beginning at 3 p.m. Friday, July 9 until 6 a.m. Saturday, July 10 and the second beginning 3 p.m. Saturday, July 10 until 6 a.m. Sunday, July 11.

Meanwhile, it's confirmed that the naked photos that emerged of Faris and Evans on set at a Boston Harbor wharf were, in fact, body doubles casting scouts found from the casting call here. While Faris and Evans were both on set, the bare backside photos are not of the "What's Your Number?" co-stars.

"Neither of the people who were 100 percent naked [on set] were Chris or Anna. ... they are body doubles," an insider tells Loaded Gun Boston.
