Kim Cattrall is coming for Sarah Jessica Parker over the third installment of Sex and The City 3….. The Manolo Blahnik connoisseur confirmed with Extra last thursday, that plans for the movie have been scrapped… Well, Kim Cattrall is not here for it and decided to speak her mind..
In all actuality, tensions were brewing about Kim asking for more money on top of her diva demands, but she has denied the story, claiming that it’s totally untrue..
According to Eonline:
Elaborating on her side of the story during an interview taped for Piers Morgan’s ITV show, Life Stories, the Golden Globe winner denounced claims against her conduct and turned the tables on her co-star.
“And now, now at this very moment it’s quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I’ve been saying for almost a year of ‘no’ that I’m demanding or a diva,” Cattrall told Morgan, according to The Daily Mail. “And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer.”
“I really think she could have been nicer,” she reiterated. “I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.” E! News has reached out to Parker’s camp for comment.
However, Cattrall also said, “There is genuine affection and there has been over the years.” While questions remain over what caused the third film’s demise, Cattrall insisted she always rejected the project.
“The answer was always no and a respectful, firm, no,” Cattrall told Morgan, according to The Daily Mail. “I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous.”
According to The Daily Mail, Cattrall explained during the interview that she had received sporadic calls since December about the project with offers to meet with producers, all of which she said she declined.
“This isn’t about more money, this is not about more scenes, it’s not about any of those things,” she told Morgan. “This is about a clear decision, an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another. I’m 61. It’s now.”
While she reportedly declared to Morgan we will never see her on screen as Samantha Jones again, she’s not opposed to recasting the character or introducing a new one entirely.
“I want them to make the movie, if that’s what they want to do. It’s a great part. I played it past the finish line and then some and I loved it and another actress should play it,” she suggested during the interview. “Or bring in another character. It can be another character. This is what I really believe that this franchise needs another point of view and this could be it.”
