Sarah Jessica Parker has finally directly addressed how Kim Cattrall’s comments about Sex and the City made her feel.
The 52-year-old actress appeared on the January 31, 2018 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. She spoke about the disappointing cancellation of the third Sex and the City movie after Kim refused to return to the role of Samantha and the controversy over some of the negative things Kim has said about the franchise in the press.
In a word, Sarah Jessica says she was “heartbroken” to hear Kim’s claims that she had “never been friends” with Sarah Jessica or their other co-stars.
“I found it very upsetting,” the Divorce star revealed. “Because that’s not the way I recall our experience. So, it’s sad. But I always think that what ties us together is this singular experience. It was a professional experience, but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives.”
“I’m hoping that that sort of eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken — that that lingers,” she added. “That many years spent doing something so special, that people had a connection with — it is such a privilege.”
Kim and Sarah Jessica co-starred with Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis on the long-running HBO show and in its two movie sequels.
In October 2017, Kim famously told Piers Morgan that the onscreen friends never had an offscreen friendship. “We’ve never been friends,” she said, according to People. “We’ve been colleagues and in some way, it’s a very healthy place to be.” She also compared the entire Sex and the City 3 fallout and drama to a “toxic relationship,” E! News reports.
