While Cattrall hasn't spoken directly about not being part of the reboot, on Monday she did like a tweet noting that she was putting herself first. The tweet read, "I absolutely love Sex and the City and whilst I am saddened that Samantha will not return, I applaud doing what is best for you and think this is great example of putting yourself first. Well done @KimCattrall 💖💖💖."
"I'm lucky enough to have the choice, not that I haven't worked for it. I have," she said. "It's something I feel very lucky to have and I'm very protective of it. I wouldn't be any good doing something that I really didn't want to do."
"I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film," she also shared. It was astonishing some of the things people wrote to me -- 'I work in a bank and I don't like this person and I don't like the hours, but I do it. So you just do it! Give me what I want. I do it. I'm miserable, you be miserable too.'"
Meanwhile, And Just Like That will follow Carrie, Miranda (Nixon) and Charlotte (Davis) as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s, HBO Max revealed on Sunday. The 10-episode, half-hour series is scheduled to begin production in New York late spring.
