Twelve years after the end of “Sex And The City”, Sarah Jessica Parker is still addressing questions about her rumoured feud between herself and co-star Kim Cattrall.
“It used to really confound me and really upset me,” she said while promoting her newest series “Divorce” on “The Howard Stern Show”. “This is a family of people who needed each other, relied upon each other and loved each other. And this sort of narrative, this ongoing cat fight, it really upset me for a very long time.”
She continued, saying that the rumours “had taken on a life and it didn’t matter.”
“It was upsetting because it was usually about bad behaviour on the set and I take very seriously my reputation. I work very hard and I treat people well,” Parker added. “And I have a work ethic that’s very meaningful to me and it’s based on the affection I feel for the people I get to work with… to suggest that I’m behaving poorly or not treating somebody well… it’s so anathema that it would drive me bananas.”
From falling in love on a movie set to getting fired from two animated films, Parker looked back on a range of topics with the shock jock, including how she managed to avoid nudity on “SATC”. “I just said I wasn’t going to do it,” she told Stern.
As for her co-stars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Cattrall, who all appeared nude on the show, Parker maintained that “everybody talked about their level of comfort [with nudity]. People only did what was comfortable to them.”
“My desire not to do it was not about some principle that I wanted to [uphold],” Parker insisted. “I think it’s great if somebody feels comfortable with nudity… I didn’t think it was necessary for the part.”
