Kim Cattrall Reflects On ‘Miserable’ Fans Trying To Bully Her Into ‘Sex And The City’ Movies
Kim Cattrall got a lot of flak for refusing to make any more “Sex and the City” movies. Cattrall played Samantha Jones in “Sex and the City” the series, plus two subsequent films. Amid talks of a “Sex and the City” reboot on HBO Max, Cattrall reflected on the backlash she got for refusing to take part in any more movies based on the franchise. "I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film," Cattrall said. "Some of the things that people wrote to me, like, you know, 'I work in a bank, and I don't like this person, and I don't like the hours, I don't like this, and I do it.
"Kim is a grown woman. She is 64 and she's made a decision that I'm sure she has 10 very good reasons for and I respect her for that," Bushnell adds, whose collection of essays inspired by the exploits of herself and her friends were used as the basis for the original HBO series. "Kim should be happy — and I think she is happy. I think that her character Samantha is always going to be an inspiration to them."
Though Samantha won't factor into the new episodes, Bushnell says there is still much to tune in for.
"I imagine she'll be there in spirit and as an inspiration that gives them a chance of exploring sexuality with different characters [without Samantha hogging the libidinous spotlight]," she continues. "But I also know there's a lot of interesting characters like [Nixon's] Miranda. We are all Mirandas. Miranda is an interesting character — but I don't know what they're gonna do," she says.
