Before you spend a lot of money on Victoria’s Secret Lingerie to impress a special man, just make sure you think it is going to work for him. Chris Noth reminds us that not all men are turned on by frilly underthings:
He tells WENN, “I’m not into Victoria’s Secret so much. I find it over the top. I like subtlety and I like elegance. I think their things are gaudy and they are really trying too hard. If I could make a fashion statement, I think that Victoria’s Secret looks to me like somebody who is putting on too much make-up. It’s too gaudy, man.
“I mean, come on take it easy, you don’t have to have a f**kin’ bouquet of flowers on your underwear. Sorry Victoria’s Secret; I hope they’re not one of our sponsors!”
Maybe he likes lingerie, but the elegant kind that doesn’t have girly prints or too much lace.
Sarah Jessica Parker is also talking down Kim Cattrall’s comments that she did, absolutely, hold out for more money before she would commit to the film.
Even as they were filming those last scenes in Paris, Parker and her collaborator, writer-director Michael Patrick King, were kicking around a movie concept. King’s original pitch sounds like a palate cleanser intended to follow the hype surrounding the series finale—it was a light, summery, Bob Hope–style road movie, with the girls following separate paths. “Then the deals weren’t happening,” King tells me. “And the money people didn’t believe in it.”
Parker’s co-star Kim Cattrall reportedly scuttled the project, wanting more money and creative control. “If I had thought it was any of my business at the time,” Parker tells me carefully, “what I would have said is, ‘Isn’t it okay for Kim to think that the money wasn’t right?’” (She also drily notes, “Perhaps she was some kind of emotional psychic, because this way we made a better movie.”)
I’m glad that it has worked out for the best, and since Kim’s stand for more money held off production on the movie, it kind of proves that she was worth it. The movie could not be made without her, so the four main characters should have had very similar salaries. At this point, it seems that Kim was paid $6million, Sarah Jessica Parker made $10million (with an extra $5million for producing the film) and Cynthia Nixon and Kriten Davis were each paid $2million.
