Cynthia Nixon reveals the one scene from Sex and The City which left her feeling devastated
Cynthia Nixon has some not so fond memories of Sex and the City and particularly a scene with Sarah Jessica Parker which left her feeling extremely disappointed.
Sex and The City star Cynthia Nixon reveals the one particular scene which left her feeling devastated. The actress is known for playing the role of a high-powered lawyer Miranda Hobbes on the hit series as well as in the two feature-length films based on it.
The 51-year-old actress shared on The WendyWilliams Show about one scene which really disappointed her. She remembered the time when she was at a London screening for the film when Mr. Big played by Chris North presents Carrie Bradshaw played by Sarah Jessica Parker with her own walk-in closet.
That particular scene did not work well with Cynthia who shared that it did not reflect what the HBO series tried to accomplish. "I was a little devastated by that because it seemed to me that the show was so much about female empowerment and about women making their own choices and women standing up for what they wanted and supporting themselves," she said.
"So to me, to have this be a kind of a climax of the film that your very wealthy husband built you a really nice closet for your clothes, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s not really what you love about this show, is it?’ Because that’s not what we were making it for," Cynthia continued.
As reported by the Independent, the creator of Sex and the City, Darren Star also made a similar comment. "For me, in a way - and I didn't [write] those last episodes - if you're empowering other people to write and produce your show, you can't... say certain things. At a certain point, you've got to let them follow their vision... but I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't have to find happiness from marriage."
"Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached." However, recently Cynthia is much more caught up with running for the governor of New York. "If we don’t like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up and get involved like never before. So that’s what I’m doing."
