LATEST: Sarah Jessica Parker has laughed off reports of friction with her FAILURE TO LAUNCH co-star Matthew Mcconaughey.

An insider recently told MSNBC's The Scoop that the hunky actor found Parker "peculiar" and "couldn't bear (her)".

However, the actress speaks highly of her onscreen sweetheart, saying he was "a pleasure to work with".

The 40-year-old star adds she has been a victim of malicious gossip since reports of drama on the set of her long-running SEX AND THE CITY series surfaced years ago.

She says, "I got branded as a bitch by gossips desperate for there to be bitter rivalry when the cameras stopped running. Matthew was a dream...the rumours are laughable."
