‘I was never invited to partake in the series. ‘And just like that’: Kim Cattrall said that she learned about the reboot from social.
Kim Cattrall has disclosed that she was never invited to be part of the new Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That. In addition, the actress was upset about a storyline in the third film in which her character receives cock pictures from Miranda Hobbs’ 14-year-old son Brady, which ultimately led to her withdrawing from the project: “I was never asked to be in the reboot .”. After a possible third film, I made my feelings clear, so I found out about it like everyone else – from social media,” the 65-year-old actress said in an interview with Variety.
When asked how she felt about the reboot, she responded, “Something like, ‘Ohhh… How is that…’,” Kim replied. “But it is great wisdom to know when you have had enough. I also didn’t want to compromise what this show was for me. The way forward seemed clear .”
Kim played the liberated publicist Samantha Jones and allegedly missed the spin-off due to a long-standing feud with co-star Sarah Jessica Parker. Cattrall says she read the script for the third film and was disappointed with how Samantha’s story would play out. For example, she was supposed to be sent unwanted “fucking pictures” of Miranda’s 14-year-old son. “It’s heartbreaking,” Kim said of the script. Instead, Cattrall would rather see Samantha being forced to sell her PR company to “some guy in a sweatshirt” as a result of the 2008 financial crisis.
Ultimately, Kim decided not to participate in the third film after seeing her character’s lack of progress. “I would prefer that we all have some kind of event that deserves a third film. That did not happen. But other than that, I was ready. And that’s exactly what I wanted: to be in different places, to play different characters, because I’m a character actress.
