Sarah Jessica Parker 'heartbroken' after Kim Cattrall says they were never friends

You'd imagine all the actors from Sex and the City, the 90s and 00s hit TV show and problematic film series, are best mates, right?

Sadly not, it seems.

Kim Cattrall told Piers Morgan earlier in the week that she and Sarah Jessica Parker were "never friends" when working together:

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.

The quote made some headlines, and was followed up by host Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, who asked Sarah Jessica Parker in an interview:

What was your reaction to Kim Cattrall telling Piers Morgan that you were never friends, just colleagues?

Sarah Jessica Parker replied she was "just heartbroken" at the news:

I mean, that whole week, you and I spoke about it endlessly, because I was just, I don’t know, I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience.

It’s sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience. It was a professional experience, but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken.

That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with it is such a privilege.

In a recent appearance on The Ellen Show, Sarah Jessica Parker floated the idea of a Sex and the City 3 film regardless of whether Cattrall was signed on, possibly starring Ellen as Samantha:

I think there’s a period of grief, a mourning process.

Perhaps we’ll be able to consider… say for instance, you playing Samantha.

If you ask us, Ellen joining the cast might be about the only thing that could make a third film bearable.
