In an exclusive with The Hollywood Reporter, Parker said, “There were just a lot of public conversations about how she felt about the show,” which Parker found to be “very painful.” She added, “They did not reflect our [hers, Kristen Davis’ and Cynthia Nixon’s] experience.”
In recent years, Cattrall has spoken publicly about her riff with her costar, and shared that she not on board with a third Sex and the City movie after their sequel was released in 2010. Her iconic character, Samantha Jones, didn’t return to the reboot of the show, And Just Like That.
Parker talked about the third movie falling through telling the outlet, “They didn’t feel comfortable meeting where she wanted to meet, and so we didn’t do the movie because we didn’t want to do it without Kim.” Adding, “Were we disappointed? Sure. But it happens.”
Parker later revealed that they did not ask Cattrall to be apart of AJLT because of her public dislike for the show saying, “That’s not ‘slamming’ her, it’s just learning.”
Parker wanted people to know that this is not a “catfight.” She told the outlet, “It’s so painful for people to keep talking about this ‘catfight’ — a ‘fight,’ a ‘fight,’ a ‘fight.’ I’ve never uttered fighting words in my life about anybody that I’ve worked with — ever. There is not a ‘fight’ going on.”
She continued, “I just wish that they would stop calling this a ‘catfight’ or an ‘argument,’ because it doesn’t reflect [reality]. There has been one person talking.”
Amongst the tension (not fight) between Parker and Cattrall, Parker’s costar from the hit movie, Hocus Pocus (which is set to to release its reboot in September 2022) seemingly weighed in on the conversation.
On Thursday after the article published, Kathy Najimy publicly supported Cattrall on Twitter writing, “@KimCattrall Sending you alll the love and support in the WORLD today!! one of the best, most authentic humans in the ‘business’ and maybe the world! Dinner soon my love!”
Najimy, who plays Mary Sanderson in Hocus Pocus, since deleted the tweet (it was captured by DailyMail) and posted another message that reads, “Sending love to my brilliant authentic talented beautiful hilarious @kimcattrall1 today..miss you.”
In April, both Cattrall and Najimy shared a selfie on Instagram posing with one another after hanging out together. “Catching up on all the gossip with my pal,” Cattrall wrote.
Najimy captioned her regram, “Love this brilliant wise TALENTED resilient interesting compassionate beautiful fun funny HONEST gorgeous “woman’s Woman” @kimcattrall.”
Naturally, fans had something to say on Twitter in response to Najimy’s praise for Cattrall, with one user saying, “I would love to be a fly on the wall on set of Hocus Pocus 2.”
Neither Parker nor Cattrall has since spoken about Najimy’s tweets.
