Gover­nor race

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Ageing With Attitude -

SHE was 52 last week but ac­tress Cynthia Nixon — bet­ter known for her por­trayal of Mi­randa Hobbes in the HBO se­ries Sex And The City — has ob­vi­ously opted to take to the po­lit­i­cal rather than the act­ing stage, as she ma­tures in years. Nixon — no rel­a­tive of the late 37th US Pres­i­dent Richard Nixon — has an­nounced she will be run­ning for New York gover­nor. And al­ready her SATC cast­mates, Jes­sica Parker, Kristin Davis and Kim Cat­trall have tweeted their en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port. A breast can­cer cam­paign ac­tivist since she bat­tled the dis­ease 10 years ago, Nixon has also iden­ti­fied her­self as bi-sex­ual and took a pub­lic stand sup­port­ing the le­gal­i­sa­tion of same­sex mar­riage in Wash­ing­ton state, the home state of her wife, Chris­tine Mari­noni, with whom she has had a third child, fol­low­ing her divorce.
