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

I could listen to her for hours. As a young women I appreciate her wisdom and honesty a lot.

It's not fair . Making out that she is the baddie. She is classy well spoken woman
How to grow beautiful without plastic surgery.
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.

"No, I don't think you can have it all...but you can have more than enough to make you happy and content.. and fulfilled"

Well said Kim... ;*)

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.

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.

wise and classy.... what a beautiful person, what a gorgeous woman.
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.

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.

Great interview! She's giving wisdom to many of us younger women.

Her acting is far better than sex and the city - right decision
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..👍🏻👍🏻❤️
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!

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.

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 said it all ....Agism in society keeps people from living their lives to the fullest.
very nice energy in this conversation you can see they're all enjoying each others company
this was a freaking fantastic pairing for an interview.

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.
So natural so aging natural so the best of SEX& CITY.

My favorite actress of the 4 girls on the show. She looks amazing for 60 something. Smart and genuine. You go girl!

England is not a socialist country. Wtf is she even talking about.
Kelly Caviazel
Kelly Caviazel:
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!
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.

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.

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.

She is amazing.
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.

Why does he stutter so much? I've watched other interviews of his and he sounded more eloquent. Then again, he might be star struck... Gotta love Cattrall!

John Ward:
Yep - I totally agree re the 'cancer' thing. There was an underlying sub-text, frankly. There definitely was; there always is when these sorts of things are 'thrown in' there in big mainstream scripts. What are they there for in the first place? That the actress had to push for a particular angle to be applied...
This was a spectacular interview, thank you. I'm so glad that they were able to talk around SAAC rather than just about it.
I'm also now intruiged to know more about Erna Solberg & her politics.
Terry Baker
Terry Baker:
I agree with Kim, Samantha Jones is in every sense a fictional character

What a classy goddess. Love your work.
Neither Canada nor England are socialist countries, they're capitalists.
This is how interviews should be. Enjoyed it very much
"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."
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.

With all respect, growing up,!man this woman was in my wet dreams for sure!! I wish wasn't dreamy at all !!
She's my favorite off and on screen! Love her!
It's amazing to see the difference between her persona and what she plays in Sex in the city. She's classy and defined. I don't like Samantha. I do how ever like Her (Kim) she is great. Lol
