Kim Cattrall Says Her 'Sex And The City' Role Has Ruined Her Love Life


Kim Cattrall Samantha Jones Sex And The City

Sex And The City’ star Kim Cattrall believes that starring in the popular series has ruined her love life. The 58 year old actress was speaking to Standard Issue magazine in a feature interview, and claims that her portrayal of the sex-obsessed character Samantha Jones has negatively influenced what men think about her.

“I haven't had a date in a long time!” the actress exclaimed. “Sometimes I feel that I live in this tower.” The raunchy Samantha Jones character, known for being something of a man-eater, seems to have rubbed off on Cattrall’s real life, like so many roles have for so many actors and actresses before her.

'The Carrie Diaries' Labelled 'Bland' and 'Inept' By Critics


Sex And The City AnnaSophia Robb Sarah Jessica Parker

New teen drama 'The Carrie Diaries' received mixed reviews after airing on Monday night (January 14th 2013) on CW with critics calling the show 'bland' and 'inept'.

The series was made as a prequel to 'Sex And The City' looking into the teenage life of Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker in SATC) in the '80s in Connecticut. Young Carrie is played by AnnaSophia Robb who appeared alongside Johnny Depp in the 2005 adaptation of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. However, many critics have slammed the show for a number of different reasons. Matthew Gilbert from The Boston Globe called it 'somewhat bland' before knocking the appearance of the actress in comparison to Sarah Jessica Parker. 'She's not as small and angular, and she has a softer temperament', he said. 'I spent too much time during the premiere trying to morph Robb into Parker in my mind's eye.' Matt Zoller Seitz from The Vulture was even more cold about the show. 'The characters are bland', he said before calling it 'an inept spin off that dishonours its source' and accusing it of 'wanting to cash in on 'Sex and the City'.

The slightly warmer reviews came from Robert Lloyd at the LA Times. 'The situations are stock - John Hughes wrote this playbook pretty thoroughly - and the dialogue does not exactly crackle', he said, while Tim Goodman from The Hollywood Reporter said: 'It's kind of quaint and far less cynical than 'Gossip Girl''.

Sex And The City Prequel To Premier Tonight, What's it About?


Sarah Jessica Parker Sex And The City

You'd think both of the Sex And The City movies were fair warning: stop trying to make money out of the franchise, it'll never be as good as the series and it's getting embarrassing. Do they listen? You know the answer to that.

Now, tonight in fact, the SATC prequel will be on televisions, telling the story of the show's lead Carrie Bradshaw, as she makes her journey from Connecticut to Manhattan due to the death of her mother. "This is a younger Carrie. I mean, we're first meeting Carrie in 1984, and she's 16, so she's just getting introduced to New York and her first love and fashion, and she's really finding herself as a writer and trying to find her voice," star AnnaSophia Robb told MTV News at the series' red-carpet premiere in October. Author Candace Bushnell, says it's difficult to compare the prequel to the main show. "I never know how to answer that question," Bushnell said when asked to do just that. "Both Carries are really close to me."

"I just really tried to capture being a teenager in a small town, and although your life is perfectly fine, for some reason you want more," she continued. "You want to see the world, and you really want to experience the world. And the Carrie in 'Sex and the City' had that dream, but she's experiencing it, and she's gotten there, whereas the Carrie in 'The Carrie Diaries' is just trying to figure out how to get there."

Blair Underwood Upsets African-American Fans With Interracial Love Scene


Blair Underwood Sex And The City

'Dirty Sexy Money' star Blair Underwood has received unfavourable backlash from African-American fans, after he appeared as the black lover of a white character in 'Sex And The City'. Despite being the first African-American actor to join the cast of the predominantly white series, some of Underwood's fans did not respond with approval to the character of Dr. Robert Leeds; boyfriend to Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon).

However, Underwood claimed that the outspoken fans reviewed their position on the character after learning that Underwood has a black wife - Desiree DaCosta - and has been for 13 years. He explained his understanding of the events, by saying: "In terms of the black female audience, usually in your body of work if you've proven that you love your sisters (black women) and will come back home, they will give you a pass when you jump ship. I hear it all the time. I heard, 'We'll get you a pass because we know you're married to a black woman.'"
