‘There was no fight’

SJP says there’s no feud be­tween her and for­mer SATC cast­mate Kim Cat­trall

Ottawa Sun - - SHOWBIZ - — WENN

Sarah Jes­sica Parker is re­fus­ing to re­spond to her for­mer co-star Kim Cat­trall’s com­ments, ac­cus­ing her of ex­ploit­ing her brother’s death, in­sist­ing she is not in­ter­ested in feud­ing with her.

Last year, Kim reignited her feud with Sarah, which re­port­edly be­gan dur­ing the early days of shoot­ing Sex and the City, when she de­clared she didn’t want any part of a third movie, and she later told news­man Piers Mor­gan that she was never friends with her co-stars.

In early Fe­bru­ary, Kim an­nounced that her brother Chris had been found dead, and Sarah of­fered her con­do­lences on­line and spoke about it while pro­mot­ing her show Di­vorce.

How­ever, 61-year-old Kim re­sponded by slam­ming her on In­sta­gram, say­ing she didn’t need Sarah’s sup­port and ac­cused her of ex­ploit­ing the tragedy to push her “nice girl” per­sona.

Parker is now de­fend­ing her­self against Cat­trall’s crit­i­cisms, in­sist­ing she never bashed Kim over her de­sire to step away from the third film. Sarah in­sists she is not fight­ing with Kim, but ex­plains Cat­trall has a right to ex­press her feel­ings to­wards her — even if she is up­set.

“I never talked about it, ex­cept (to say) that some of us were dis­ap­pointed (about the movie not hap­pen­ing),” she tells Peo­ple mag­a­zine.

“But I never re­sponded to the con­ver­sa­tion Kim had with Piers Mor­gan, where she said things that were re­ally hurt­ful about me. We had this ex­pe­ri­ence and it was amaz­ing, and noth­ing will ever be like it.”

“We had a con­nec­tion with an au­di­ence, and we had a con­nec­tion with the city and with this crew, and we got to tell these crazy sto­ries with each other,” she con­tin­ues.

“So I don’t want to mess with that... There was no fight; it was com­pletely fab­ri­cated, be­cause I ac­tu­ally never re­sponded. And I won’t, be­cause she needed to say what she needed to say, and that is her priv­i­lege.”

Sarah went on to state she still can­not imag­ine any­one else other than Cat­trall play­ing the role of vamp Saman­tha Jones.
