No, Kim Cattrall Won’t Watch (Or Appear On) And Just Like That At All

The absence of Samantha Jones in Sex and the City’s revival, And Just Like That, can all be pinned on…Brady Hobbes? Miranda’s son definitely factored into Kim Cattrall’s disillusionment with the franchise, she advised Variety in her first public feedback in regards to the reboot.

Cattrall wasn’t impressed with the proposed script for a third Sex and the City movie, and declined to take part in it. The movie, which Cattrall distanced herself from in 2017, contained a “heartbreaking” storyline involving Miranda’s teenage son Brady sending undesirable dick footage to Samantha. This tracks with Brady’s overtly sexual scenes within the reboot. “The sequence is principally the third film,” Cattrall advised Selection. “That’s how inventive it was.”

As a substitute, the actor was looking forward to an arc targeted on Samantha’s public relations enterprise. “Why can’t Samantha, who owns her PR firm, perhaps she needed to promote it due to monetary woes? 2008 was powerful. Some persons are nonetheless recovering,” Cattrall mentioned. “She needed to promote it to some man who’s sporting a hoodie, and that’s the dilemma she has.” When requested if she felt Samantha’s storyline wasn’t “progressing” within the third installment, Cattrall replied, “That’s an understatement.”

Brady might have been the horned-up straw that broke the camel’s again, however Cattrall believes she selected the appropriate time to publicly distance herself from Intercourse and the Metropolis anyway. “Every thing has to develop, or it dies,” she mentioned. “I felt that when the sequence ended, I assumed that’s sensible. We’re not repeating ourselves. And then the film to finish all of the free ends. And then there’s one other film. And then there’s one other film?” Nonetheless, Cattrall admitted it was “scary” to step away from the franchise, regardless of being “bullied by the press or the followers or whomever — to only say, I’m good.”

Although And Just Like That was introduced years later, a sequence that might reunite all of her co-stars—Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis—Cattrall mentioned she was not alerted to its existence earlier than most of the people was. “I used to be by no means requested to be a part of the reboot,” she mentioned. “I made my emotions clear after the potential third film, so I came upon about it like everybody else did—on social media.”

When requested how she feels about how AJLT addressed Samantha’s disappearance (the character fell out with Carrie when their skilled relationship ended and was MIA for Big’s funeral), Cattrall mentioned she hasn’t watched the present. Nonetheless, the character as depicted on AJLT “feels completely different than the Samantha that I performed,” mentioned Cattrall, including that she’s discovered “the best praise I may have as an actor is to be missed.”

Selection additionally requested Cattrall to touch upon an interview through which Sarah Jessica Parker mentioned too much drama had happened publicly for Cattrall ever to return to the sequence. “Nicely, it might by no means occur anyway,” Cattrall replied. “So no one has to fret about that.” As a substitute, Cattrall is specializing in roles in two different spinoffs—Hulu’s How I Met Your Father and Peacock’s Queer as People reboot. And she’s remaining curt about her closeness along with her former co-stars. “I assume it’s the way you outline mates,” Cattrall mentioned when requested about her bond with the ladies of Intercourse and the Metropolis. “I believe we had been colleagues. My colleagues aren’t my mates. It was skilled.”
