Eve talked about the impact of the TV series and film in a magazine interview long before she landed the part of an Irish nanny in the upcoming Sex & The City 2 – but insists her remarks were twisted.
She says, “I’ve watched the show since I was a teenager. I think what I was doing was going on a feminist rant about women being pitted against women, and I used that as an example.
“But it’s the most wonderful show and it shows modern women. I think I was using it as an example of the modern woman and modern female relationships and how really women dress for women, but it was interpreted as something opposite.
“It was one of those things where you’re misquoted.”
Eve feared a reprimand on the set from Sex & The City creator Darren Star and the franchise’s stars, but admits she was quickly put at ease and realised no one cared about her misquoted comments.
She struck up a bond with Kristen Davis and Evan Handler, who play her clients in the sequel.
She tells Australian website WhatsPlaying.com, “I went for dinner with Evan’s family and Kristen was incredibly supportive and she’s very talented. It was special.
“It was very comfortable. I was surprised at how comfortable it was… you walked in to it, and everything was smooth. It was amazing.”
