Cynthia Nixon Says One 'Sex & the City' Scene 'Devastated' Her

Cynthia Nixon played the role of Miranda on all of the seasons of Sex and the City, as well as in both films, and now, she’s revealing which scene left her devastated.

The scene in question happens when Mr. Big (Chris Noth) reveals that he built a huge closet for Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker). At the London premiere for the film, the audience clapped at the scene, and Cynthia reacted.

“I was a little devastated. It seemed to me that the show was so much about female empowerment and about women making their own choices and women standing up for what they wanted and supporting themselves. So, to me, to have this [scene] be a climax of the film, that your very wealthy husband built you a really nice closet for your clothes, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s not really what you love about the show, is it?’ ‘Cause that’s not what we were making it for,” Cynthia said on the Wendy Williams Show .

    why couldnt’ the scene be interpreted as a woman finding a man that accepted and celebrated something that was incredibly important to her, how she expressed herself through her clothing and so, because he was interested in what she enjoyed and made her happy, he had the closet built?

    She does realize this was for Carrie Bradshaw, right? I never really got empowerment from Carrie, she was a whiney user who turned every conversation towards herself. Do we not remember the whole Paris, quitting a job for a man, argument between Miranda and Carrie.

    Plus she asked for a big closet in exchange of an engagement ring and scoffed at the shitty closet in the penthouse.

  • Artie

    Got to admit, it was a fucking great closet.

  • Dieter from Sprockets

    a disgraceful woman

    Because he was going to buy her another amazing apartment but she said the closet wasn’t up to snuff – yet at her single apartment she made it work.

    Yeah but the show would’ve been better if Carrie ended up single. A real guy like Big would never have married her. He would have strung her along or maybe settled into a long-term relationship like Goldie Hawn.

    her closet in her apartment was a mess. plus, if you’re moving into a much much larger place, you might want/expect a more spacious closet, especially when you’re going to be potentially sharing it with a spouse who is likely to have just as large a wardrobe as you – don’t ever try to tell me Big wouldn’t have a huge number of suits and shirts and ties and shoes and cufflinks etc etc. why wouldn’t she have wanted more space?
