The Girls Dish On The Sex In The City Movie
Up until now all we've known about the Sex and the City movie is what we've glimpsed in the trailer and the flashes of fashion we saw from those on-set pics. Well, that’s all changing now that Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall have sat down for their very first group interview in preparation for the film’s May 30 release. The quartet of couture queens spoke to LOGOonline about what fans can expect from the movie — “a lot of this movie is going to be surprising people. This is a grown-up movie,” SJP says.
When asked what it was like to slip back into those heels after three years of flats. “It was wild. We were back in these outfits and these heels again,” Cynthia says. “We had to re-learn how to walk down the street and walk in unison and not teeter over in our heels, but it kind of felt great — like a four-headed, eight-legged organism.”
Sarah Jessica, who plays Carrie says, “The movie doesn’t pick up right where the series ended — it's a few years later, there’s much more at stake. There’s a lot more time invested in her relationship with Big and something major happens that fundamentally changes who Carrie is.” Left at the altar perhaps?
On the flip side, everything is going amazingly well for Charlotte, played by Kristin. “She has her adopted daughter. Charlotte is trying to be a good mother,” Kristin says. And whereas Charlotte has the perfect home life, Miranda’s seems to be falling apart. “Her son is thriving but her marriage is kind of mmmmm — not doing so great. We are dealing with unfaithfulness,” Cynthia, who plays Miranda, says.
As for Samantha, Kim says her character might still be baring more than her soul, but at 51 years of age, she is more conscious of being so exposed. “It’s all about lighting,” Kim laughs. “Michael [Patrick King, the producer/director] was also very sensitive to what was appropriate for the movie and also for Samantha.”
