Kim Cattrall Confirms Sarah Jessica Parker Feud

Kim Cattrall

Rumours have been circulating about tensions between the stars of Sex And The City of late - or, more specifically, between Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker. It was reported last week that it was because of some diva-ish demands on the part of Cattrall that the third SATC movie wouldn't be going ahead, with SJP talking to Extra about her dismay: 'It's over...we're not doing it. I'm disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. 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.'

All fingers were pointing at Cattrall for jeopardising the movie, and she promptly reacted on Twitter by saying 'The only 'DEMAND' I ever made was that I didn't want to do a 3rd film...& that was back in 2016'.

Since that tweet though, Cattrall has appeared on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, and what she told him was remarkably frank, when you consider the number of times both she and Parker have swatted away rumours of their feuding over the years. She said 'now at this very moment it's quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I've been saying for almost a year of 'no' that I'm demanding or a diva. And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer. I don't know what her issue is, I never have.'

For any SATC fan harboring notions of the four ladies being as close in real life as they are in the show, well, you'll be disappointed by Cattrall remarking that she doesn't really see SJP, Nixon or Davis anymore: 'They all have children and I am 10 years older and since specifically the series ended I have been spending most of my time outside of New York so I don't see them. The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over.'

Despite not wanting to be part of it, Cattrall suggested that the project should go ahead without her, saying 'I want them to make the movie, if that's what they want to do. It's a great part. I played it past the finish line and then some and I loved it and another actress should play it, maybe they could make it an African American Samantha Jones or a Hispanic Samantha Jones?'

She then added, 'Or bring in another character. It can be another character. This is what I really believe that this franchise needs another point of view and this could be it'.

Cattrall has since received a great deal of support on Twitter, and it remains to be seen whether another SATC film will go ahead, sans Samantha.
