Sarah Jessica Parker is refusing to respond to her former co-star Kim Cattrall’s comments, accusing her of exploiting her brother’s death, insisting she is not interested in feuding with her.
Last year (17), Kim reignited her feud with Sarah, which reportedly began during the early days of shooting Sex and the City, when she declared she didn’t want any part of a third movie, and she later told newsman Piers Morgan that she was never friends with her co-stars.
In early February, Kim announced that her brother Chris had been found dead, and Sarah offered her condolences online and spoke about it while promoting her show Divorce. However, 61-year-old Kim responded by slamming her on Instagram, saying she didn’t need Sarah’s support and accused her of exploiting the tragedy to push her “nice girl” persona.
Parker is now defending herself against Cattrall’s criticisms, insisting she never bashed Kim over her desire to step away from the third film. Sarah insists she is not fighting with Kim, but explains Cattrall has a right to express her feelings towards her – even if she is upset.
“I never talked about it, except (to say) that some of us were disappointed (about the movie not happening),” she tells People magazine. “But I never responded to the conversation Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me. We had this experience and it was amazing, and nothing will ever be like it.”
“We had a connection with an audience, and we had a connection with the city and with this crew, and we got to tell these crazy stories with each other,” she continues. “So I don’t want to mess with that… There was no fight; it was completely fabricated, because I actually never responded. And I won’t, because she needed to say what she needed to say, and that is her privilege.”
Sarah went on to state she still cannot imagine anyone else other than Cattrall playing the role of vamp Samantha Jones.
