Kim truly is nothing like Samantha. I always applaud actors who play characters so far removed from themselves. It must be very freeing

Very impressed by how articulate and thoughtful she is
What a class act she is!
She's so smart and has so much knowledge and substance. She can have an in depth conversation and hold her own with the Prime Minister of Norway. Love Kim!
Kim speaks so well and carry herself so well, my goodness.

Great interview! She's giving wisdom to many of us younger women.
wise and classy.... what a beautiful person, what a gorgeous woman.
EXCELLENT analogy about the S&C writers giving Samantha breast cancer, as punishment for her sins. They made the character “pay” for being free, honest, and living her life on her own terms. How dare she be a successful, strong, forceful, business woman, with a strong sex drive, that she wasn’t ashamed of, or afraid to act upon. Bravo Kim Cattrall! Well done.

She said it all ....Agism in society keeps people from living their lives to the fullest.
this was a freaking fantastic pairing for an interview.

Her acting is far better than sex and the city - right decision

I think it's fine she has retired Samantha. It's time for her to move on into her 60's and discover new roles. I don't think it should stop the series from going goes on without people.

H Dubbs:
If she really did halt the production of SATC 3 the fans owe her their gratitude. What more is there to do? What story can be told? Chris Noth is also just exhausted by it. Let it rest. It's over.

The way they treated Samantha in the second film was tragic. Especially that scene where she drops her pills and condoms in and has a meltdown--it was so awful, I felt humiliated watching it. Though I feel Kim Cattrall did the best with the material, the material failed her.

Edit: Grammar
very nice energy in this conversation you can see they're all enjoying each others company

I like this natural aging look so much better, than the overly botoxed, lip-filled look that many actresses succumb to. She looks so so good, not only for her age, but in general. I never really understood why you would want to put so much botox in your face as an actress in particular, because acting is all about showing emotion through your expressions.

Such wise woman with a lot of substance.
No wonder Jessica is jealous! Great for you to say “no”.

My favorite actress of the 4 girls on the show. She looks amazing for 60 something. Smart and genuine. You go girl!
Karen Okeane
Karen Okeane:
VERY articulate, intelligent and well spoken. I enjoyed this exchange, and Samantha Jones will forever remain one of my favorite characters.
smart classy woman worth of listening to, an actress worth of respect, an icon i will always remember as my favorite character of satc
She looks and sounds amazing. Very rare that we get to see a “non scripted” interview where the actor is candid, classy and honest. Sex and the City is something that will live well past the people that were involved with it,however it doesn’t define who Kim is. Wish her the best and Thanxs for your many years as an actor who gave us some great performances..👍🏻👍🏻❤️

Thank goodness she said no to a third movie of Sex and The City. The first two were abysmal and there is no reason to think the third would be any less disappointing.

After this reveal Im really amazed how comfortable she looks and acts in SATC. Also Im sorry she worked such a long time with people she had not been close to with.

J.L Clever:
She looks BETTER than Sarah Jessica in my opinion.
Awesome. I'm 41. I'm glad she is saying this. It is weird. I'm back in the gym and I am wondering if I can still be hot at 40 something. Crazy!
this interview is so stunning. I always felt sex and the city characters might be too dumb for their ages . but in real life, Kim is the woman who got the depth of thought belonging to her age.
Kim is so damn classy and intelligent. When she speaks I’m riveted to hear what she has to say. And her points are so finely articulated and on the mark and full of truth.

SATC is good to watch once a week as it went when started. But if you get ill for example and you watch 5 episodes per day, you become sick of SJP character and Charlotte! Carrie getting upset because of every little thing, from tiny gesture to a squirrel and Charlotte although the youngest, is most conservative and marriage obsessed hysterics!

Even though she was portrayed as a men eater with no Tabus in the series, she was this classy, smart, sexy, successful and strong woman, I so did admire
Jason T
Jason T:
She is so deep intellectually it just outshines SJP any day. Cannot compare the two of them as SJP is not even in the same league as Kim. To be fair, Kim once said she is about 10 yrs older then the rest of the gang so she's definitely more wise which makes her so attractive as she is both beautiful and smart.
A A:
She ages so gracefully.

Two powerhouse women from completely different professional backgrounds. I could see them collaborating on something important.

I drink her words. I didn't know she was wise like that.
41 when she started? She looked in her late 20’s! She looked fantastic and still does!

Interesting. I'm here for Kims Beauty obviously. But I have to admit, she makes a very decent prognosis on the celestial equation that marked the years of literary controversy. Never thought it would be this in depth. Thank you so much for the upload.
So clear English word by word. Easy to listen. Kim is gorgeous.

Wow! Kim went from _Lassie_ to this warm, articulate, and wise woman.
Interesting she ( and others) feel that way about cancer. I'm glad she had input on how Samantha handled her diagnosis rather than the diagnosis itself.
She’s very intelligent and stunning for her age
Kim is awesome 😍

"Well, the reason why I said no when they asked me to play Samantha in Sex and the City, is that I said no, you know? Had I said yes, then I wouldn't have said no."
This is how interviews should be. Enjoyed it very much

Why don't we in the UK have intelligent, meaningful and deep late-night chat shows anymore. We have to put up with the screeching Alan Carr, or Jonathan Ross. I like Graham Norton but I miss Parkinson - that was more classy.

Beautiful soul Miss Cattrall
Wow kim seems like a very authentic, caring, thoughtful, strong woman. I believe her in an instant, that sjp didnt treat her well and that the satc production team basically harrassed her to do satc 3. Compare this Interview with one sarah jessica parker did. It is such a difference!
