'SATC 2' Women On Drama Rumors: 'Sometimes Feelings Get Hurt'
If you’re one of the fans who found the first “Sex and the City” film too weepy – Sarah Jessica Parker says the sequel is a sunny solution.
“The new movie is the antidote to the first one,” she told the June 2010 issue of Marie Claire. “It’s a romp. A caper. It’s big and cinematic and grand—and fun!”
The beloved HBO series-turned-hit-movie in 2008, earned $415 million worldwide, a whopping number that quieted the conventional wisdom that a quartet of middle-aged women couldn’t carry a film. In fact, if the “SATC” stars have their way, the franchise will return for round 3.
“If Sarah Jessica and [writer/director] Michael Patrick [King] want to make another, I’m there,” co-star Cynthia Nixon told the mag. “I’d go along with them blindfolded.”
Though the stars may be ready as ever for more “Sex,” they’ve dealt with a number of rumors of squabbles and off-screen drama over the years – rumors that the cast tossed aside like last season’s Manolos.
“When you’re on set, you’re working 90 hour weeks, you’re never home, you’re exhausted,” SJP explained. “There are times when all of us have been sensitive, and sometimes feelings get hurt.”
Kim Cattrall added, however, that the group’s chemistry was alive and well.
“The chemistry among the four of us is very strong,” Kim said. “The press has to put women in these boxes, rather than show them as the movie portrays them: working together and being powerful.”
“It hasn’t always been smooth sailing,” Cynthia said. “But the idea that we’re somehow adversarial is ridiculous.”
And Kristin Davis recalled the early days of the series, which found the group bonding over 19-hour days and trips to the beach.
“When we first started, we would all drive out to the Hamptons together at 4 AM on a Friday night after shooting ended and see the sunrise as we arrived. I love those memories,” she said. “We worked so many hours, just work work work work work.”
Work, she concluded, that paid off.
“We didn’t start on this show when we were 20. Everyone knows how old we are, and we’re still getting to make movies,” she said.
