Kim Cattrall Burns ‘Sex & The City’ Castmates: “We’ve Never Been Friends”
KIM CATTRALL BURNS SEX & THE CITY CASTMATES
It appears the up-in-the-air film sequel will not be made, as Cattrall, who played Samantha in the hit HBO show, is not interesting in reprising her character. In an interview with Piers Morgan‘s Life Stories, the actress admits that she and her castmates never really got along in real life. “We’ve never been friends,” she said. “We’ve been colleagues and in some ways it’s a very healthy place to be because then you have a clear line between your professional life and relationship and your personal.”
Sex & the City followed Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, a sex column writer living in New York City, and her group of close female friends. It ran from 1998 to 2004, with two follow-up films in 2008 and 2010. Cattrall has taken the brunt of blame for the third sequel’s demise. The feuding grew last month when Parker gave an interview in which she shared her disappointment that the film would not be made.
“We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story,” the actress said. “It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
Following up, Cattrall responded about her former castmate. “This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, is that I think she could have been nicer,” Cattrall told Morgan. “I really think she could have been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is.”
As for why she didn’t want to do a third movie sequel, Cattrall explained that she made “an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another.”
