Kim Cattrall is bitterly jealous of her Sex And The City character SAMANTHA, because the show made the persona more famous than the actress. Cattrall even claims casting directors tried to hire her in character as Samantha after the show ending. She says, "Yes. I mean, people used to try and book me as Samantha - can you believe that? And I just wanted to scream, 'I am not Samantha!' Nor do I want to be, as much as I think she's great. "Nobody's really interested in getting to know me. I feel jealous of Samantha, because I feel like maybe I might be quite funny or interesting if I was given the chance."
