Kim Cattrall on why she’ll ‘never’ be in another Sex and the City movie
If you’re one of those Sex and the City stans still holding out hope for a SATC 3 with the full cast…sorry, friend. Kim Cattrall has made it clear that she will never, ever participate in Sex and the City 3. Of course, Cattrall—who brought PR-exec-by-day, heartbreaker-by-night Samantha Jones to life—has long been outspoken about not wanting to return to the beloved franchise, but a recent interview with the Daily Mail is the most definitive she’s been yet.
When asked if she would appear in another SATC film, she told the publication, “Never. It’s a no from me.”
She then added, “You learn lessons in life, and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.” The Daily Mail dubbed this “a swipe” at her former costar Sarah Jessica Parker, though Cattrall doesn’t name-check her former costar—or any Sex and the City costars, for that matter—in the interview.
While there have been rumors of tension between Parker and Cattrall for years, things came to the surface last winter after Cattrall’s brother passed away. Parker shared her condolences on Cattrall’s Instagram, to which Cattrall replied, “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
As for Sex and the City 3, the hopes of seeing that come together have been slim for a while now. In September 2017, Parker told Extra, “It’s over. We’re not doing it. I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
Regardless of why we won’t see Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha reunited on the big screen, we can all agree there will be a cosmopolitan-sized hole in our hearts.
