Sarah Jessica Parker Reaches Out to Former Co-Star Kim Cattrall After Brother's Death
By Antoinette Bueno
Whatever Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall's differences may be, Parker put it aside upon hearing the news that Cattrall's younger brother, Christopher, has died.
Cattrrall announced on Sunday that Christopher died unexpectedly, after he had been reported missing in Canada. Canadian authorities told ET that Christopher was found dead on his property, and that his death "doesn’t appear suspicious in nature.”
"It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall," Cattrall wrote on Instagram. "At this time we ask for privacy but we want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time."
Parker responded through a comment on Instagram, offering her former Sex and the City co-star her "love and condolences."
"Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother," Parker's comment reads.
And Parker isn't the only Sex and the City star to reach out to Cattrall. Cynthia Nixon also commented on Cattrall's post, writing, "Hey Kim such awful news. So sorry to hear. Sending you love. XO."
Earlier this month, Parker admitted she was upset over Cattrall's comments last October that she was never friends with her Sex and the City co-stars. Cattrall starred in the hit HBO series alongside Parker, Nixon and Kristin Davis from 1998-2004, and also filmed two Sex and the City movies.
"They all have children and I am 10 years older, and since, specifically, the series ended, I have been spending most of my time outside of New York, so, I don’t see them," Cattrall said during an interview with Piers Morgan, adding that she's disappointed that her former co-stars don't try harder to stay in touch. "The common ground that we had was the series, and the series is over."
“I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience," she shared. "It’s sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience. It was a professional experience but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that that eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken. That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with it is such a privilege.”
