Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker's feud goes back far on Sex and the City: 'They hated each other'
"They hated each other"
It's been tough keeping up with the feud of the year - possibly, ever.
Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker played best friends for 12 years on Sex and the City, but life doesn't always initiate art the pair's distaste for each other has apparently been quietly brewing for some time.
While filming, it's reported that Parker and the other two stars Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon would eat lunch separately from Kim and they would stay in a different hotel on location. Cattrall was said to be put out by Parker's executive producer credit in later seasons and the $1m-per-episode salary that accompanied it.
Last year, Parker said Cattrall was the reason a Sex and the City 3 film wouldn't be made. Reports had been circulating that Cattrall was making 'diva demands' before signing on.
In October, she told Piers Morgan that Parker "could have been nicer", clarifying she never made any demands and made it clear back in 2016 that she wouldn't be on board for a third film.
"I don't know what her issue is," she said. "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."
After Cattrall's brother's untimely death last week and Parker's expressing her condolences on social media, the 61-year-old snapped. Insiders said they weren't surprised that the pair's fractured relationship had broken, but they were taken aback about the extent of their dislike.
One set source told Us Weekly: "They hated each other."
A friend of Cattrall added that Davis, Nixon and co are confused about her "lashing out". "Their costars can’t understand why Kim lashed out. It wasn’t this bad during filming," they said.
"You have two strong, famous women competing for the same thing. Of course it wasn’t nice."
