Last month, the Daily Mail claimed that Kim had pulled out of playing Samantha Jones in a third big-screen adaptation of ‘Sex And The City’, due to producers failing to meet her apparent “diva demands”.
In response, Kim said she’d made no “demands” but had simply decided not to do the film.
‘Sex And The City’ fans have been divided over the news, with some arguing that Kim should give them one last outing as Samantha (particularly after ‘Sex And The City 2’ proved to be such a dud), and others claiming it’s her right to not take part if she doesn’t want to.
But it seems Kim is done with the conversation completely now, publicly urging one fan to “move on” from the topic.
One fan tweeted her saying he was “confused” after reading she said she was “too old” to play Samantha, despite her having spoken out about Hollywood ageism in the past, to which she responded: “I’ve played ‘SAM’ for 20 years. Am moving on & so should you.”
Perhaps sensing the tweet would get media attention (or maybe we shouldn’t be so cynical), she then urged him to watch her more recent series, ‘Sensitive Skin’, on Netflix.
‘Sex And The City’ cast members Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis have both expressed their disappointment that the film was ultimately canned, with SJP saying: “We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story.
“It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
By way of response, Kim admitted she thinks her former co-star “could have been nicer” about her decision not to return.
