Nearly two decades since the series first aired on HBO, “Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall has opened up about her tumultuous relationship with castmates in an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan.
Throughout the show’s filming, Cattrall was protective of her private and public relationships with co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristen Davis. But in a sit-down interview with Piers Morgan for ITV’s “Life Stories,” Cattrall said she never had anything in common with the other women, calling their relationship “toxic.”
Cattrall’s appearance on ITV came just days after sources told Daily Mail TV that her exorbitant compensation requests led to Warner Bros. canceling the third “Sex and the City” film. The actress flat-out denied the claim to Morgan, then launched into a soliloquy on her complicated relationship with the cast.
“They all have children and I am ten years older and since … the series ended, I have been spending my time outside New York so I don’t see them,” said Cattrall.
“The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over.”
Cattrall went on to note: “I’ve moved on, this is what my sixties are about. They’re about me making decisions for me, not my career, for me. And that feels frickin’ fantastic.”
She quickly added: “But everything comes to an end and in closing one door another door opens and that door has been waiting for a long time.”
Cattrall then said she was disappointed none of her castmates reached out when her name was besmirched as the culprit that held up the latest film.
“And that’s another thing that’s really disappointing, is that nobody ever picks up the phone and tries to contact you [to] say, ‘How you doing?’ That would’ve been the way to handle it,” said Cattrall.
“And 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, [and] 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.'”
Cattrall then noted, “That’s not what happened here, this is … it feels like a toxic relationship.”
In the end, she says she’s glad about the platform the show has given her and she’s ready to move on. She also said she wouldn’t rule out reconnecting with Sarah Jessica Parker.
“Me playing her, that I can assure you will never happen. For me, it’s over. It’s over with no regrets. I just wish that Sarah had been nicer,” said Cattrall.
“I’m at a point in my life where I am making decisions that make me happy and going backwards in life doesn’t make me happy. Going forward, that’s how I feel; I’m on the front foot not my back foot.”
