SEX AND THE CITY star Kristin Davis had nightmares when she was required to wear a real fur cape on the hit TV series.

The animal rights activist admits it was difficult to work on a show that frequently showcased couture minks and fox stoles.

Davis says, "One time PAT (Fields, the show's costume designer) wanted me to wear a chinchilla cape.

"I tried it on, and that night, I had nightmares that the chinchillas came alive and were crawling on my head."
