Kim Cattrall Speaks Out About SJP's Sex and the City Theory

You’ll remember just a few weeks ago, a theory from Sarah Jessica Parker about Sex and the City was revealed that she suspected all along that her three famous companions were just figures of Carrie’s imagination to fill her column.

“I used to wonder if Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were real,” she mused about her on-screen BFFs, while TV host and comedian Hardwick lost his mind.

“You’re saying ‘this type is this and this,’ and then you complicate it more, like any good writer does.

“So I’m not entirely sure they are actually real,” the 51-year-old concluded.

“I think that’s very, imaginative…"

“Because I know that Candace Bushnell, who I got to know, they were, those characters were actually cemented by Darren Starr and Michael Patrick King for the series, but they were really based on quite a few characters in her columns, so they just consolidated the four characters into many, many characterisations about who they were and who they came from.”
