Kim Cattrall Reveals ‘Unwanted D–k Pic’ Storyline is Why She Quit ‘Sex’!

And just like that, Kim Cattrall is opening up about the power of saying “no!”

According to Cattrall, she was not feeling the “d–k pic” storyline. For her that was the final straw when it came to passing on the third “Sex and the City” movie. Get the details why Kim Cattrall quit ‘Sex’…

CelebnMovies247.com reports that “And Just Like That” series, Cattrall said, is “basically the third movie” of “SATC” that was never made.

Kim felt like Samantha’s character wasn’t progressing, since reportedly in the third film she would have received unwanted “d–k pics” from Brady, Miranda’s 14-year-old son.

Cattrall said, critiquing the original storyline of Sex & The City 3 movie:

Why can’t Samantha, who owns her p.r. company — maybe she had to sell it because of financial woes? Two-thousand eight was tough. Some people are still recovering. She had to sell it to some guy who’s wearing a hoodie, and that’s the dilemma she has. I mean that’s a scenario that was kind of off the top of one of my reps’ heads, and I thought, ‘That’s a great idea.’

Cattrall, 65, who became a household name in 1998 playing publicist Samantha Jones in the HBO hit series “Sex and the City”, said in an exclusive interview with Variety.

And according to Cattrall, she learned of her absence from “AJLT” just like her fans did.

She said:

I was never asked to be part of the reboot…I made my feelings clear after the possible third movie, so I found out about it like everyone else did — on social media.

Despite not being asked, Kim says that the outcome would have been the same.

She recalled at the ending of the second movie she told herself:

Everything in me went, ‘I’m done.’ That’s a no. It’s powerful to say no. It’s a great wisdom to know when enough is enough,” Cattrall said. “I also didn’t want to compromise what the show was to me. The way forward seemed clear.

The actress has no regrets over not returning to the show.

I’ve come to the conclusion that really the greatest compliment I could have as an actor is to be missed.

Was Kim Cattrall friends with Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis outside of filming SATC?

Cattrall admitted their expert acting pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes. When asked if she was ever friends with her “SATC” co-stars, she said it depends on “how you define ‘friends.’ “

I think we were colleagues…My colleagues aren’t my friends. It was professional.

She added:

And as difficult as it was, and as scary as it is to stand up and not be bullied by the press or the fans or whomever — to just say, ‘I’m good. I’m on this track. It was so great working with you. I so enjoyed it, but I’m over here.

Yet the show goes on, even without Cattrall physically on set. In the revival, Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw exchanges texts with Samantha, who has supposedly moved to London.

Kim weighs in on And Just Like That and Samantha’s character still in the show without her there.

She said:

It’s odd, isn’t it? I don’t know how to feel about it. It’s so finite for me, so it doesn’t continue. I think I would ponder it more if I didn’t have something like ‘Queer as Folk’ or ‘How I Met Your Father.’ That’s kind of where I’m centered around. This feels like an echo of the past.

Kim adds:

I haven’t deserted anybody. Can you imagine going back to a job you did 25 years ago? And the job didn’t get easier; it got more complicated in the sense of how are you going to progress with these characters? Everything has to grow, or it dies. I felt that when the series ended, I thought that’s smart. We’re not repeating ourselves.

Kim Cattrall on Being Cast in The Original “SATC”

But “SATC” almost didn’t even cast Cattrall, who turned down the role three times for the original series.

She confessed:

At 42, I really didn’t think I could pull it off. I finally said, ‘You’re making a mistake here.’

Now, at 65, Cattrall is working on other series such as “How I Met Your Father” and “Queer as Folk” — but not in the way you might remember her. she said she just “doesn’t want to” go back to the Samantha character anymore.

But as “And Just Like That” gears up for future seasons, no one can really fill the Samantha-size hole. “SATC” creator Darren Star said he wasn’t expecting her to be as funny as she was on-screen, and now, the show will never be the same.

Star said:

She wasn’t interested in a TV series. Now it’s impossible to imagine the show without her.
