Kristin Davis: ‘Sex And The City’ Never Asked Us ‘To Lose Weight’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Kristin Davis may strut around on Park Avenue in designer labels as Charlotte York Goldenblatt in the “Sex and The City” franchise, but the actress has never been asked to diet to look fabulous on the big screen.
The actress told Britain’s Red magazine that the only criticisms she’s ever had for her weight or figure, came from places other than the “SATC” set.
“You get a lot of criticism out in the world or on the Internet about how you look. Fat here, fat there. Hippy this, hippy that. That has been my entire career,” she told the mag’s June issue, which hits British newsstands on Wednesday. “But never at work. No one at ‘Sex and The City’ has ever asked any of us four girls to lose weight. Thank God.”
Although work doesn’t ask, Kristin stays looking good by eating healthily – most of the time.
“I eat a lot of chicken, salmon, eggs and side salads,” she told Fitness magazine’s May issue. “But if all I ate were salads every day, I’d shoot myself. Who cares if you can fit in your skinny jeans if you can’t enjoy life and have something good to eat?”
Kristin will return to the big screen as Charlotte when “Sex and The City 2” opens on May 27, and she credits the HBO franchise for her success.
“Remember when we were young…and you thought that you had to make it in your 20s, like if you weren’t going to make it on your 20s, you weren’t going to make it. So, the fact I would be turning 45 and be the busiest, most successful I’ve ever been is very, very odd. And it is all because of ‘Sex and The City,’ really,” she told Red mag.
Kristin, who has starred in “Melrose Place” and films including “Deck The Halls” (with Sarah Jessica Parker’s husband Matthew Broderick), and “The Shaggy Dog” (with Tim Allen), said “Sex” allowed her to have a bigger career.
“I think I would have done OK without it, but I don’t think any of us would have had this kind of career at this age if it hadn’t been for the larger thing ‘Sex and The City’ turned out to be, culturally,” she said.
