And just like that: Sarah Jessica Parker finally breaks her silence on broken relationship with Kim Cattrall

Sarah Jessica Parker opened up about one of Hollywood’s biggest rumored feuds, calling the situation with former Sex and the City co-star Kim Cattrall “painful.”

After years of relative silence, Sarah Jessica Parker finally opened up about her strained relationship with former Sex and the City co-star Kim Cattrall.

This comes weeks after Cattrall weighed in on the series’ recent revival. And just like that… calling it “weird” that the show went on without a fourth main character, Samantha Jones.

Speaking of Hollywood Reportertalk about awards podcast, Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays New York writer Carrie Bradshaw on the show, was careful about her choice of words to describe her broken relationship with Cattrall.

While acknowledging that it’s “very hard to talk about the Kim situation,” Parker said she wants to be clear about the “painful” situation, insisting it’s not a two-way catfight.

Rumors of a feud have been circulating for years, but came to a head in 2017 when the third sex in the city the film was up for discussion. The project reportedly did not materialize due to Cattrall’s contractual requirements.

“They didn’t feel comfortable meeting where she wanted to meet, and so we didn’t make the film because we didn’t want to shoot without Kim,” Parker said. “We were [she and co-stars Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon] upset? Of course. But it happens.”

The actress went on to explain that she was hurt by the way Cattrall spoke about the situation in the press.

“There was just a lot of public talk about what she thinks about the show,” Parker said, adding, “I spent many years working really hard to always be decent to everyone on set, to take care of people. , to be responsible to and for people, both to my employers and to the people for whom I feel responsible as a producer of the show.

“And there’s just no one who’s ever said that about me.”

Shortly after the film fell apart, Cattrall was interviewed by Piers Morgan during which she denied the production was closed due to contract disputes, saying that she simply did not want to reprise her role.

She added that she was disappointed with the backlash and how the actors handled it, adding that the four women “were never really friends.”

“And it is here that I set the task for people from sex in the city and especially Sarah Jessica Parker, I think she could be better.”

Later in an interview, the 65-year-old Cattrall mentioned the 57-year-old Parker again, saying “they were never friends.”

“I don’t know what her problem is, I never had it,” she said.

Cattrall was never involved in planning And just like that…which Parker said was made in light of her response to requests for a third SATC film.

“We didn’t ask her to be part of this [And Just Like That] because she made it clear that it wasn’t something she wanted to do, and it wasn’t convenient for us anymore, and so it didn’t cross our minds,” Parker said.

“It’s not ‘slapping’ her, it’s just training. You have to listen to someone, and if they talk publicly about something and it doesn’t suggest that it’s a place they want to be, or a person they want to play, or an environment they want to be in, you reach to the age where you say, “Well, we hear it.”

She added: “I just want to say one thing because you gave me this opportunity: it hurts so much for people to keep talking about this ‘cat fight’ — ‘fight’, ‘fight’, ‘fight’. I have never in my life uttered a swear word about anyone I have worked with—never.

“There is no ‘fight’ going on. There were no public disputes, spats, conversations or accusations from me or anyone on my behalf. I wouldn’t do it. It’s not the way I would like it to be.

“So I just want them to stop calling it a ‘nightmare fight’ or ‘argument’ because it doesn’t reflect [reality]. One person spoke.

During the first season And just like that… Samantha, who has moved to London, is featured in several episodes via messages from Carrie.

Her absence from the group is due to her falling out with Carrie after she was fired from her position as her publicist. Although Samantha never appears on screen, the series hints at the pair catching up and potentially making amends in the finale.

AT recent interview with DiversityCattrall said the original SATC line-up reprises their roles in And just like that … without her: “Strange, right? I don’t know how to feel about it.

“It’s so finite for me that it doesn’t last … It’s like an echo of the past … I loved [Samantha]. I loved her so, so, so much. This is tough competition. The original show is in every one of our imaginations. But to me it looks clean.”

The SATC alum claimed that saying goodbye to Samantha Jones was the “right” thing to do in her career.

“And you can’t go against that feeling,” she confirmed. “I never want to be on set and I don’t want to be there.”

She explained the revival: “I was never asked to be a part of [it]. I made my feelings clear after a possible third movie, so I found out about it like everyone else on social media.”

Regarding her reaction to fans who were disappointed by Samantha’s absence from the series, she said, “The biggest compliment I could give as an actress is skip it.”
