Kim Cattrall Opens Up About Leaving 'Sex And The City' After Reboot Rumors Were Revealed

Kim Cattrall won’t be returning to HBO Max’s possible Sex and the City reboot, and in a new interview is opening up about how she feels lucky to walk away from her iconic role as Samantha.

In years past, the 64-year-old actress, spoke out about her time on the show and her co-stars.

In this new interview for the Women’s Prize for Fiction podcast, Kim shared that after revealing just how miserable she was on the set, she got a lot of backlash for her comments.

“It was a lot of fun and I loved it and being in new territory is always exciting. I felt like we were,” she said of the groundbreaking series. “Walking away, even if it’s the only thing to do, you always feel, it’s a bit of shame, I think. The taste of shame and you have to let go of that. You don’t want to become that caged bird.”

Kim notes that the backlash that still thinks about are the comments from fans who thought she should swallow any negative experiences and just learn to deal with it.

“I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film. It was astonishing some of the things people wrote to me — ‘I work in a bank and I don’t like this person and I don’t like the hours, but I do it. So you just do it!’” she shared. “Give me what I want. I do it. I’m miserable, you be miserable too.”

Kim added, “I’m lucky enough to have the choice, not that I haven’t worked for it. I have. It’s something I feel very lucky to have and I’m very protective of it. I wouldn’t be any good doing something that I really didn’t want to do.”

Last year, Kim made headlines after saying she’d never return to the role of Samantha for a reboot of the show or film. Before that, she opened up about having toxic relationships with her co-stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
