If you ask Kim Cattrall, I’m sure she’d say that her greatest, most challenging acting role of her career was the one where she acted like she didn’t want to spit into Sarah Jessica Parker’s cosmo while filming Sex and the City. But if you ask Sarah Jessica Parker, like Vulture recently did, that smile plastered on her face in the pic above is anything but fake. SJP denies that the claws ever came out during the filming of SATC or after.
It was rumored a few months ago that SJP was planning on keeping her mouth shut about all the SATC third movie drama, and would clap back at a later date when she was good and ready. That day is today. SJP tells Vulture that she was nice to everyone on set. As for her alleged battles with Kim, she says she definitely isn’t missing clumps of hair, because she has never engaged in any sort kind of catfight.
“I’d just like to remind everybody that there is no catfight. I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word, so I would love to redefine it….I’ve always held Kim’s work in high regard and always appreciative of her contributions. If she chooses not to do the third movie, there’s not a lot I can do to change her mind and we must respect it. That’s the only thing I’ve ever said about it, you know?
But, no, there is no catfight, there never has been a catfight. I’ve never fought with someone publicly in my life, nor would I. And I spent time with all of the women on the set…We are enormously proud of what we got to do and I don’t want someone sharing thoughts publicly, which is Kim’s right to do and that is what it is, but we spent 10, 12 years of our life doing something that I really loved and I feel privileged to be part of and I don’t want this to eclipse it or change its experience for that audience that was so good to us for so long.”
SJP adds that she, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon are disappointed that they might not get to make a third SATC, but notes that we live in a free country where people can say “no” to things.
And in case SJP wasn’t yelling loud enough when she says there was no catfight, she says she was always on set with three other women, and that it was never an SJP vs. Kim showdown. Kim would probably agree with that. She might just add that the three women she shared the set with roamed around like a mean girl gang, identified by the sound of whisper-y mid-brunch backstabbing and the straps of a Chanel 2.55 wrapped around their knuckles.
