Kim Cattrall will ‘never’ do another ‘Sex & the City’ movie, but did she shade SJP?

'Tell Me A Story'  Premiere

Throughout much of the fall of 2017 through March-April 2018, one of the biggest stories in gossip was truly about a beef between Sex and the City actresses. The show has been over for 15 years and the two movies were utter trash, but it looked like Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to make a third (terrible) movie and she tried to bully Kim Cattrall into signing on yet again so that Samantha could have the worst and most humiliating storyline. There was a bitchy back-and-forth between Cattrall and SJP and I remain firmly Team Cattrall. At this point, I hope everyone has just moved on and I hope everybody realizes that a third film would be terrible. But people are still asking Kim about it!

They say ‘never say never’, but Kim Cattrall has now made it clear she will ‘never’ partake in Sex and the City 3. The 62-year-old beauty, who played the much loved character of Samantha Jones, confirmed on Sunday that she would never be returning to the franchise, taking a slight jab at known enemy, Sarah Jessica Parker. Speaking with Mail Online, the beauty made light of her ongoing feud, even hinting the 54-year-old wasn’t a ‘good person’.

When asked if there was any chance she’d appear in another Sex and the City movie, she replied ‘Never. It’s a no from me,’ without any hesitation.

‘You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I wouldn’t say Kim is being shady – we all know what she’s talking about and she answers the question directly, saying NO of course she’s never going to do another SATC movie. And the lesson from most bad jobs is to “work with good people.” Even if SJP had never bullied or maligned Kim as they were filming, SJP and all of her little minions definitely ganged up on Kim last year, and for what? It was like they were trying to publicly shame Kim for… simply not wanting to put herself in a bad work situation, with a sh-tty script and a terrible storyline.

    Love her response. It’s short, honest, to the point. She’s done. If it were SJP answering the question she would be blabbing on and on. Kim is at an age where she knows what she wants and she’s happy with it.

    • A random commenter says:

      I admire Kim here because she was downright bullied by SJP and her friends, and she could have easily said, “I choose not to work with those who attempt to intimidate me and damage my professional reputation.” Her restraint was classy.

    • Liquorice says:

      Did some reading on their salaries – the pay disparities were huge. SJP got $3.2 million per ep (!!!) and Kim got 350K! I assume Kristin and Cynthia got less than that. SJP got $15 for one movie and Kim got $6 million while the other two got $2 million. They were ensemble cast in reality (though the show ostensibly revolved around Carrie) and should have been paid fairer amounts relative to SJP, who played the most disliked character.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    I recently rewatched some of the earlier seasons and the quality of the show (scripts etc..) went down hill when SJP became a producer. It very quickly became the whiney Carrie show where the other characters were just background. That’s when I stopped watching, it became boring and repetitive.

    I love Kim and good for her for standing up for herself. SJP has never been a nice person.

    • minx says:

      Exactly! The first season was a little grittier and more honest. Then it became all about SJP, and everything in the story had to flatter her—the clothes, the male characters throwing themselves at Carrie. I was a huge fan and now I can’t watch it. Kim always carried herself well, even when the plot lines were embarrassing or ridiculous.

      • Andrea says:

        Which season did she start producing it?

      • minx says:

        Andrea—according to IMDB by the the third season she was a producer, then “co-executive producer,” then sole executive producer for the last two seasons.

      • Andrea says:

        Thank you! I liked the early years and her Aidan years, but after she broke up with Aidan, I was meh with the men she dated. It all makes sense now.

  3. Becks1 says:

    Great response. You do you Kim. Another SATC movie is not something anyone is really clamoring for anyway, after the disaster that was the second one (the first one was pretty bad too, but nothing compared to the second one).

  4. Other Renee says:

    Team Kim. That’s all I’ve got.

  5. Jaded says:

    Kim Cattrall’s role spiraled into a cartoon character once SJP took over so she’s entirely justified in refusing to be bullied into another sh*tty movie. SJP can take her “poor little me” act and shove it.

  6. KEEKS says:

    and as SJP mopes around NYC, people inquire “what’s with the long face?”

    • JM says:

      Really? Horse jokes? Still? in 2019? Seems like you have a bit of work to do on yourself.

      • Jane'sWastedTalent says:

        Eh. It wasn’t a ‘horse’ joke per se, it was a play on a ‘long face’ meaning sad. I chuckled a little, and I have a long face myself. Your level of anger seems extreme.

  7. Eliza says:

    SJP is bitter she’s not making money. She thought she could bully her way. But it backfired because Kim refused to back down. No woman should be forced to work a job against her will.

    • minx says:

      SJP probably had her eye on more NYC real estate and she counted on a payday from SATC 3.

    • Jan says:

      Not a big SJP fan but to be fair she has plenty of money coming in. She has her own show on HBO that she co-owns. On like it’s third season I think.

      • minx says:

        She does have lots of money but she and Matthew Broderick are always looking for more NYC property. An SATC movie payday would provide the really big bucks. Divorce on HBO is ending, I’m sure she was well paid for that but it wasn’t a huge cash cow.

    • Liquorice says:

      Her shoe and accessories line is probably another motivation (in addition to money) to do a 3rd film (raise her visibility).

  8. SuperStef says:

    I’m totally team Kim a I don’t blame her one bit for not signing up for a 3rd bad movie. I liked the first one but #2 was embarassing and they turned Kim’s character into a cartoon joke in menopause. So lame.

    I like SJP but I think she’s a bit of an idiot and needs to STFU when it comes to Kim and another movie. We’ve all moved on.

  9. Senator Fan says:

    Team Kim all the way. Also too, the shitty scripts that she had to work with for less than pay. She stood up for quality movie and script and for pay equality. SJP was paid more than all the others and Kim didn’t think it was fair. It’s an ensemble cast not a SJP pony show, despite her best efforts. And the way SJP did the social media crap when Kim lost her brother was gross. Tried to pass it off as she was sympathetic to Kim but was a backhanded slight to make her image of nice girl reaching out to a former colleague in her time of sorrow. But the way Kim clapped back was classic and told the real story behind the scenes. I have great respect for her and how she carries and represents herself.

  10. tuille says:

    I can’t even recognize Kim now in that picture. Big change.

    • Ana Maria says:

      I just came here to see if anyone mentioned that, that she looks completely different; not different because she is older, no; different as in she had some not so good job done on her face

    • Betsy says:

      I think she gained a teensy bit of weight/is doing less than most.

  11. lucy2 says:

    She’s pretty clearly said NO for several years now. I wish people would stop asking her, and that SJP would stop trying to (not so) slyly bully her into doing it.

    As long as she’s not under contract, Kim has the right to decline whatever she wants. I give her a lot of credit for sticking up for herself and knowing what she wants.

  12. Starkiller says:

    Honestly they both look petty and pathetic at this point. They both need to shut up about it.

  13. Andrea says:

    Whatever happened to that show set in Toronto that she was in? Lasted two seasons? It was called Sensitive Skin. It was really good. I guess it was never renewed. Did anyone else watch it?

  14. Liquorice says:

    Kim can complain about this all she wants; I don’t think she’s bitter but was just answering a question. When she turned down #3, someone’s PR team took serious revenge by pretty much libeling her in the gossip columns, through leaks, for being a ”diva’. It is utterly unprofessional to target someone for negotiating tough and there’s definitely a sexist element to it. A guy would probably have been termed confident and aware of his own worth for doing the same thing. She did not hold up any production or disrupt anyone’s contract because the production hadn’t started.

    Someone clarified what was in the 3rd script and turns out Cattrall wisely didn’t want to do a stupid movie where her character would be the conduit for stupid menopause jokes and be sexting a teen boy. Yikes.

    And that PR leaking stuff can be very damaging to an actor’s career, which obviously relies on professional image. So the punishment leaks happen and then Kim’s brother passed away, and then SJP reaches out, all nice girl and disingenuous, and left a message on Kim’s post. Do you blame Kim for exploding?

    If this particular ‘feud’ offers a lesson, it’s a wake-up call for those people who still think they can control the narrative with leaks. Nope, too many savvy gossip-watchers and bloggers these days. The truth about who’s leaking what comes out and you’ll end up looking bad. I say keep calling her out. Team Kim all the way!

    Count me in as Team Kim. I’m only 2 years younger than her — gotta’ stick up for my peeps! The second SATC movie was execrable, especially Samantha’s storyline. Most of us manage to get through menopause without becoming hysterical harpies, and it’s ludicrous to think that a PR rep at the top of her game (as Samantha was supposed to be) would be so culturally insensitive as to go to a conservative Muslim country and flout their mores, even if she personally was diametrically opposed. I completely believe that script was passive-aggressive mean girling on SJP’s part.
