Kim Cattrall insists she's 'never been friends' with her Sex And The City co-stars
Kim Cattrall has clarified why she decided to turn down Sex And The City 3, insisting she was "never friends" with her co-stars.
The actress, 61, declined the chance to reprise her role as mad-eater Samantha Jones in a potential third movie spin-off from the hit TV show.
Recently, Cattrall was at the centre of rumours that her so-called 'diva demands' had led to the sequel being shelved.
However, she insists she put the character to bed once and for all following the second film in 2010 and always had no interest in reprising it.
Speaking about her co-stars on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Cattrall said: "We've never been friends. We've been colleagues and in some ways it's a very healthy place to be because then you have a clear line between your professional life and relationship and your personal."
Cattrall said her decision to decline the sequel was "an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another".
She continued: "This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, is that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer. I don't know what her issue is.
"The thing that still bothers me is this feeling of being in some way made to be the baddie. I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous."
