Sarah Jessica Parker reaches out to Kim Cattrall to heal feud

SJP is trying to get Sex and the City 3 off the ground

Sarah Jessica Parker Kim Cattrall feud

Hopes for a third Sex And The City movie were dashed when its star, Sarah Jessica Parker, crushingly revealed in 2017, “It’s over. We’re not doing it,” as rumours swirled that the project had fallen through because fellow SATC actress Kim Cattrall refused to reprise her role as man-eater Samantha Jones.

But Hollywood insiders tell Closer that mum-of-three Sarah Jessica, 55, has spent time in lockdown trying to re-think a strategy to get the movie – which had a finished script written by Michael Patrick King – back in production, and lift the spirits of fans of the show.

“Sarah Jessica feels that, coming out of lockdown, Hollywood will be looking for exciting new projects and believes there’s a chance they could do it,” an insider shares.

“She’s even reached out to Kim because of how frosty their relationship has become. She’s thinking that, if the two of them can somehow put their differences aside, they might just make it happen.”

Sarah Jessica Parker - aka Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie had a weekly column and managed to live in a New York City apartment - the dream. She chased Mr Big around NYC (even though he was trash) and she even cheated on Aidan Shaw with him - rude. The last time we saw Carrie she returned from Abu Dhabi after cheating on hubby Mr Big with Aidan - full circle, tbh.

Kim Cattrall - aka Samantha Jones

Confident, outspoken and sexy AF - Samantha Jones is literally everything we want to be. She stayed away from long-term relationships but went on to fall for Richard Wright however he left her devo when she found him cheating on her. She then went on to date Jerrod and the pair moved to LA however she broke up with him in Sex and the City 2 and moved back to NYC.

Following SATC, Kim went on to continue acting in movies and Broadway productions. In 2018 she tweeted that her brother had gone missing and hours later it came to light that he had died by suicide. After SJP apparently wrote condolences on Kim's Instagram, Kim hit back and claimed Sarah was "exploiting" her brother's death.

Miranda didn't trust men (classic) but after falling for Steve Brady (and having a few ups and downs) she fell pregnant with Brady. The pair co-parented their son and eventually gave in to their feelings and reunited. However, Miranda was left heartbroken during the first Sex and the City movie when Steve cheated. Luckily they made it through their rough patch and she even bagged a new job at a law firm during the second movie.

Cynthia has continued acting and in 2018 she announced she was running for governor. She's since Christine Marinoni. In 2006 she was diagnosed with breast cancer but she beat it.

Kristin Davis - aka Charlotte York

The easiest way to describe Charlotte York is as a hopeless romantic. All she wanted was a husband and kids and it appeared that she found that in Trey MacDougal however when she found out he couldn't "get it up" it took a toll on their marriage and they split. She then fell for Harry Goldenblatt who was not her type but they eventually tied the knot and welcomed Lily (through adoption) and Rose into the world.

Following her time in the Sex and the City series, Kristin continued to star in films and TV shows. She's also an ambassador for Oxfam and she adopted her daughter Gemma in 2011 and her son Wilson in 2018.

Chris Noth - aka Big

We had a love/hate relationship with Big because he was Carrie's true love but he was also the ultimate f--kboy. However, when Carrie moved to Paris and was finally ready to forget all about him, he soon changed his tune and they made things work. In the final episode of SATC we finally discovered that his real name was John James Preston.

Chris has continued acting in theatre, TV and film. He's also a co-owner of a New York music venue and a tequila company. He's married to actress Tara Lynn Wilson and they're parents to two sons.

John Corbett - aka Aidan Shaw11 of 20

John Corbett - aka Aidan Shaw

Aww Aidan; the one that got away, tbh. We still think Carrie should have stayed with Aidan - he treated her like a queen, built furniture (hashtag handy) and gave her a second chance after she cheated on him. Despite almost making it down the aisle; Aidan moved on, got married and had three children - although he did kiss Carrie in Sex and the City 2.

Not only has John continued acting but he's also released two country albums. He has been in a long-term relationship with actress Bo Derek since 2002.

Evan Handler - aka Harry Goldenblatt

Harry is definitely the least problematic out of all the Sex and the City characters. He was 100 per cent himself and loved Charlotte despite the fact that she was going through a divorce. He remained faithful and the pair welcomed two daughters into the world.

Evan has continued acting and he's also released his own books and has written for magazines and The Huffington Post. He tied the knot with Elisa Atti in 2003 and four years later they welcomed her daughter Sofia into the world.

David Eigenberg - aka Steve Brady

Steve and Miranda's relationship started as a one-night stand but they ended up actually dating. It didn't last and the pair split. When Steve discovered he has testicular cancer he ended up sleeping with Miranda and she fell pregnant. They planed to co-parent their son but eventually reunited as a coupe. In the first Sex and the City movie, Steve cheated on Miranda but by the end of the film they got back together.

Willie Garson - aka Stanford Blatch

We always loved Stanford. He was Carrie's BFF and always had her back. He did not get on with Charlotte's pal Anthony but the pair went on to get married in Sex and the City 2.

Anthony was actually Charlotte's wedding planner for her marriage to Trey MacDougal and despite that relationship not working out, Anthony and Charlotte stayed pals. Anthony went on to marry Stanford despite them not getting along for years.

Mario has continued his acting career on Broadway and in 2011 he married musical theater director Jerry Dixon after dating for 20 years.

The pair’s long-running feud reached tipping point in 2018, when Kim, 63, accused Sarah Jessica of exploiting the death of her brother, Chris, 55, after he was found dead after going missing from his home in Alberta, Canada.

“You are not my family, you are not my friend,” Kim hit back, after Sarah Jessica posted a supportive message to her on Instagram.

In 2017, Kim denied reports that the film stalled because of her “demands” after she tweeted, “The only ‘DEMAND’ I ever made was that I didn’t want to do a 3rd film.... & that was back in 2016.”

She later addressed the subject on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories show, describing her relationship with the US show as “toxic”, adding that Sarah Jessica “could have been nicer”.

However, during a podcast that featured interviews with the cast and crew, it was claimed Kim didn’t wanted to participate in a third movie because the script was largely focused on SJP’s character Carrie.

The source adds, “At this stage, Sarah Jessica is willing to get any changes made to ensure Kim would be excited about the project again. The jury’s still out, but she knows it won’t work without Kim so she’s willing to do whatever she needs to in order to smooth the waters.”
