Kim Cattrall Says She Experienced ‘Bullying’ Over Refusal To Do ‘Sex And The City 3’

Although “Sex and the City 3” might by no means come to fruition, experiences of the never-produced movie’s demise proceed to generate buzz nearly a decade after Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw final sashayed throughout the massive display. 

Chatting with The Guardian in an interview revealed Saturday, Kim Cattrall opened up briefly about opting out of a 3rd movie based mostly on the smash HBO franchise. The actress, who has repeatedly acknowledged her disinterest in reprising her function as Samantha Jones, mentioned she skilled “bullying” on account of her resolution. 

“I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved ‘Sex and the City,’” the Golden Globe winner, whose refusal to signal on for SATC Three successfully killed the movie earlier than it received off the bottom, mentioned. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough.”

In 2017, Cattrall informed Piers Morgan that the character of Samantha needs to be recast with an actress of colour in a 3rd movie. She informed The Guardian this week that she was shocked the staff behind SATC didn’t decide to pursue that choice. 

“I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying,” she mentioned. “No means no.” 

And although the 62-year-old actress didn’t name out SATC by identify, she mentioned her alternative of appearing initiatives had been formed by the 2012 demise of her father, Dennis. 

“Now I don’t want to be in a situation for even an hour where I’m not enjoying myself,” she mentioned. “I want to choose who I spend time with personally and professionally. It’s my life. … I’ve become aware there’s only so much time left.” 

Cattrall will return to the small display because the spouse of a Christian evangelical preacher with a couple of secrets and techniques to cover in Fox’s “Filthy Rich,” due out subsequent 12 months.  Nonetheless, she will be able to’t appear to shake the ghost of Samantha, whom she performed in all six seasons of the HBO collection and two profitable, if critically uneven, movies. 

Her feedback to The Guardian come weeks after she informed the Each day Mail she would “never” return to SATC in any capability. 

Rumors of an on-set feud plagued Cattrall and Parker for years. In 2017, Cattrall appeared to acknowledge a frosty relationship between the 2 when she informed Morgan that Parker “could have been nicer” and later blasted her co-star on Instagram. 

Nonetheless, Parker has repeatedly dismissed the experiences, and informed Folks in 2018, “I never talked about it, except [to say] that some of us were disappointed [about the movie not happening]. But I never responded to the conversation Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me.”

“We had this experience and it was amazing, and nothing will ever be like it,” Parker added.
