What do you think has been Sex and the City’s legacy? One of the great taboos the show con­quered was that women are not out to get each other. We were four dif­fer­ent women who together made up one com­plete woman. Were there times when you didn’t like Sa­man­tha? I find it very hard to judge a char­ac­ter I’m playing. Sa­man­tha was non-judge­men­tal and so pos­i­tive but in a brash way. Have you been in­volved in the mak­ing of the SATC pre­quel The Carrie Di­aries? I don’t know much about it. I’m very cu­ri­ous to see what they come up with. I hope they don’t let us down. What would you say to your 16-year-old self? I’d put my arm around her and say ev­ery­thing’s go­ing to be OK. At that age there are so many pos­si­bil­i­ties and per­ils and so much ex­pec­ta­tion. You were born in Liver­pool, do you feel close to your Scouse roots? Pretty close, I was there in March vis­it­ing fam­ily and two years ago I did Antony and Cleopa­tra in the Play­house, which I like to think of as Ham­let for women Were you dis­ap­pointed by Liver­pool FC’s per­for­mance this past sea­son? It’s a lit­tle sad but any­body can have a bad sea­son. When I was on stage there, Steven Ger­rard asked me if I’d like to come to see a game against Chelsea – thank­fully Liver­pool won. Then he came to see me in Antony and Cleopa­tra, which he’d stud­ied at school so he knew what was go­ing on. I don’t know if it’s his thing but he re­ally en­joyed it. You gained 25lb for your part in the film Meet Mon­ica Velour, was it strange look­ing at your­self in the mir­ror? I re­cently found pic­tures from a fundraiser I went to for Barack Obama at that time. I looked so heavy stand­ing be­tween Barack and Michelle, who are both thin and hand­some. It re­minded me why the pho­tos were in a drawer and not up on my wall. Do you think Obama will se­cure a sec­ond term? For me, there’s no choice. I just hope we can con­vince the rest of Amer­ica of the same thing. You’re star­ring in the Nin­tendo cam­paign – who’s the hottest video game char­ac­ter? Well, Mario’s kind of cute. He’s a hero, although he doesn’t look heroic. Who’s your ideal man? Some­one with a kind heart but a wicked sense of hu­mour, it’s a good combo. Kim Cattrall stars in the new cam­paign for Su­per Mario 3D Land – avail­able now, ex­clu­sively on Nin­tendo 3DS
