“I think it’s a fantastic show, I really, really enjoy it,” she said. “I think it’s beautifully acted, and realized, and written. It’s a different story than Sex and the City. It’s not as fantastical, but we live in a different times. 2008 was a real big game changer for everybody. I look at that show, and it represents what young women today are dealing with.”

Back in 1998 when Sex and the City began, Cattrall, now 58, was worried that the dialogue and storylines might be too racy for TV.

“The subject matter was out there,” she said of the show that ran until 2004. “But now because of humor and intelligence, it really has brought television and the portrayal of women in television forward.”

Though she’s admittedly a serial monogamist, unlike her bed-hopping, brazen character, Cattrall does see similarities between herself and Samantha.

“The thing that I loved about Sex and the City and playing Samantha Jones is that she was so honest,” she continued. “She had no hidden agenda. I feel that I’m the same way. If I get behind something, it’s something I’m passionate about.”
