Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker.

The long-standing feud between actresses Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker has become again a subject of significant media attention, stemming from their involvement in the popular television series “Sex and the City.”

The show aired from 1998 to 2004 and inspired two successful film adaptations, featuring Cattrall as Samantha Jones, a character known for her bold and sexually confident persona, while Parker portrayed the main character, Carrie Bradshaw. Despite the on-screen portrayal of a close-knit group of friends, rumors circulated about the tension between Cattrall and Parker during filming, allegedly due to differences in their personalities and work styles.

One factor contributing to the animosity between the two actresses was salary disputes during the early seasons of “Sex and the City.” Reports emerged that Cattrall demanded higher pay, given her significant contribution to the show’s popularity. As negotiations for their contracts were conducted separately, these salary disputes may have further strained their relationship.

In 2018, plans for a third “Sex and the City” movie were abandoned. Cattrall’s decision not to reprise her role as Samantha Jones was reported to have significantly affected the project’s cancellation. Publicly, Cattrall expressed her lack of interest in participating in the movie, leading to speculation about her strained relationship with Parker and other cast members.

The feud took a more heated turn when Cattrall took to social media to criticize Parker’s public condolences following the death of Cattrall’s brother. In her post, Cattrall expressed frustration, accusing Parker of exploiting her family tragedy for personal gain. This social media exchange further fueled rumors of deep-seated animosity between the two actresses.

In subsequent interviews, Cattrall has openly discussed the alleged toxicity on the set of “Sex and the City” and her strained relationship with Parker. She asserted they were never friends and described Parker’s behavior as hurtful. In contrast, Parker expressed sadness and disappointment regarding the feud but emphasized that she always considered Cattrall, a colleague.

It is important to note that the full extent of the feud and its underlying reasons may only be known by the individuals involved. Celebrity feuds are often complex, influenced by various factors that evolve.
