Kim Cattrall revealed she was never asked to be on the Sex And The City spinoff And Just Like That… and was heartbroken over a plotline in a pitched third film which involved her character receiving unwanted ‘dick pics’ from Miranda Hobbes’ 14-year-old son Brady.
‘I was never asked to be part of the reboot. I made my feelings clear after the possible third movie, so I found out about it like everyone else did — on social media,’ she told Variety.
When asked how she felt learning about the reboot, she replied, ‘I was like, “Ooooh.” How’s…’

The interviewer offered, ‘How’s that going to work?’
‘You said it. Not me,’ Kim replied.

Kim famously played sex positive publicist Samantha Jones in Sex And The City
Kim famously played sex positive publicist Samantha Jones in Sex And The City. She allegedly skipped out on the spinoff due to a long-running feud with her co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.
Kim says she read the script for the third film and was disappointed to see how Samantha’s story would play out. Apparently, Samantha was to be sent unwanted ‘dick pics’ from Miranda Hobbes’ 14-year-old son Brady.
‘It’s heartbreaking,’ Kim said of the storyline.
Kim would have rather liked to have seen Samantha being forced to sell her PR company to ‘some guy who’s wearing a hoodie’ as a result of the financial crisis.
‘Why can’t Samantha, who owns her PR company — maybe she had to sell it because of financial woes? 2008 was tough. Some people are still recovering. She had to sell it to some guy who’s wearing a hoodie, and that’s the dilemma she has. I mean that’s a scenario that was kind of off the top of one of my reps’ heads, and I thought that’s a great idea. That’s a conflict. Instead of an underage boy’s…’ she said.
