SJP has her say
Gather around children. Sarah Jessica Parker has opened up more than ever about the “very painful” rift between herself and former co-star, Kim Cattrall. Speaking on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, the 57-year-old actress admitted it’s been difficult to address the widely-publicized situation. “It’s pretty simple, you know? I’ll be as clear as I can. It’s very hard to talk about the situation with Kim because — I’ve been so careful about not ever wanting to say anything that is unpleasant,” she said. SJP confirmed that tension began in 2017, before a third film was due to take place, alas Cattrall’s pay demands reportedly led to the project never coming to fruition. “They didn’t feel comfortable meeting where she wanted to meet, and so we didn’t do the movie because we didn’t want to do it without Kim. And the studio wasn’t going to do it, so it fell apart.”“It wasn’t that she said ‘no’ to the movie; it’s that the studio said ‘no’ to the movie, which, you know, happens,” Parker said. As for their personal ‘differences’—Cattrall has openly slammed and criticized Parker for many years—the mom-of-three added: “I’ve spent a lot of years working really hard to always be decent to everybody on the set, to take care of people, to be responsible to and for people, both my employers and the people that I feel I’m responsible for as a producer of the show. And there just isn’t anyone else who’s ever talked about me this way, so it’s very painful.” To conclude, Parker confirmed: “There is not a ‘fight’ going on. There has been no public dispute or spat or conversations or allegations made by me or anybody on my behalf. I wouldn’t do it. That is not the way I would have it. So I just wish that they would stop calling this a ‘catfight’ or an ‘argument,’ because it doesn’t reflect actually — there has been one person talking.”
