It looks like Sex and the City is finally, finally over as revealed by a recent interview from Kim Cattrell. For years there’s been a rumored beef between the actress who famously played Samantha Jones and Sarah Jessica Parker who played the show’s lead, Carrie Bradshaw — and now we know why.
When asked for the umpteenth time about the four ‘SATC’ ladies getting together for the third movie after the show’s end in 2004, Cattrell told The Daily Mail that she’s not interested.
“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,” she said. “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.”
Adding, “Usually what happens in a healthy relationship is that someone, or a transaction for a job in my business, is that someone says, ‘are you available?’ and you say ‘yes’ and here’s the job and you say ‘yes but thank you very much but I’m sort of over here right now but thank you very much’ and that person turns to you and they say ‘that’s great, good luck to you, I wish you the best’… That’s not what happened here, this is, it feels like a toxic relationship.”
But aside from not wanting to reprise a role, the 61-year-old wants to see more diversity.
“I want them to make the movie, if that’s what they want to do,” Cattrall noted. “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?”
With that said, we’d think Vanessa Williams would be the perfect fit for the new Samantha.
