Chris Noth has given his two cents on the apparent feud between former Sex and the City co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall and why the latter remains absent from the show’s reboot.
Parker and Cattrall have not been on the best of terms for quite some time, but things took a turn in 2018 when Cattrall, known for her role as Samantha on the show rejected Parker’s condolences following the death of Cattrall’s brother.
Cattrall told Parker: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time” as well as calling her “cruel” and “not my friend”.
"I was not happy about that"
Speaking to The Guardian ahead of the release of the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That…, Noth, who played Mr. Big on the HBO show, said: “I have to tell you, I have absolutely no idea what her [Cattrall’s] thinking is, or her emotions.
“I do know that I’m very close with SJ and [Cattrall’s] descriptions of her don’t even come close.” He added that he liked Cattrall and thought she was “marvellous in the show” describing the whole feud as “sad and uncomfortable”.
“I feel very protective of her and I was not happy about that. That’s all I’ll say about that.”
In January, Parker addressed Cattrall’s previous comments saying, “I don’t dislike her”.
In November it was announced that Cattrall had been cast in another reboot, Russell T Davies' Queer as Folk, where she will play a ‘martini-soaked, high society Southern debutante with trailer park roots’, according to Deadline.
