To make more news of the return of Sex and the City on HBO Max was the bitterness that Kim Cattrall won’t be reuniting with Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis to reprise the role of Samantha Jones. Along with the debate on whether the series still makes sense without her, the reasons, official and unofficial, that prompted the actress not to take part in the project, are also holding the spot on social media and newspapers including his stormy relationship with Sarah Jessica Parker. If over the years the two have repeatedly hinted that they are not friends, it seems that the point of no return was in 2018 when, on the occasion of the death of Cattrall’s brother, Parker had expressed his condolences on Instagram by meeting, however , the reaction of the former colleague, who accused her of advertising.
Together with all the statements that have been pulled out in recent days, it is not indifferent that, under the post announcing the return of Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker didn’t tag Samantha. “He didn’t do it because they hate each other,” wrote one fan prompting Parker to respond in first person: “No, it’s not true that I hate her. I have never said that. Samantha will simply not be part of this story, she will always be part of us. It doesn’t matter who we are or what we do “ was Sarah Jessica’s response, looking for a line as relaxed as possible towards Kim who, as we know, gave up a million dollar fee per episode to stay true to her initial idea.
In 2017, in fact, Cattrall had explained that she would no longer play Samantha Jones because she was convinced that the character had nothing more to say, advising the production to hire a Hispanic or African American actress to give her new life and give a proof of inclusiveness. She later stated that she had never been friends with her colleagues, and that the relationship between them on set was “toxic.”
