Sex and the City icon Kim Cattrall has claimed that she was bullied for not doing a third movie in the franchise.

The star portrayed Samantha Jones in the hit TV series between 1998 and 2004, before reprising her character in two feature-length movies released in 2008 and 2010.

Her performance also sparked victory at the 2002 Golden Globe Awards, where she won the gong for Best Supporting Actress in a series – so why not step into Samantha’s heels again?

“I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved Sex and the City,” Kim recently told The Guardian.

“It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough. I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Kim’s comments follow a high-profile dispute between her and Carrie Bradshaw actress Sarah Jessica-Parker, which came to a head when Kim lashed out at Sarah’s attempts to offer her condolences following the death of her brother.

The actress also previously told Piers Morgan’s Life Stories how Sarah “could have been nicer”, adding: “I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”

For her part, Sarah has insisted that there never was any “catfight” between the pair, but it’s very unlikely we’ll ever see the original SATC gang get back together – particularly as earlier this summer, Kim said that she’d “never” return to the franchise.

“It’s a no from me,” she said. “You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.”
