* HostilityOnTheSet: It was rumoured that Creator/SarahJessicaParker and Creator/KimCatrall didn't get on. Apparently, the two would ignore each other any time they weren’t filming scenes for the show. Since the franchise had ended, both have chalked up any tension between them to exhausting days on set. However, in February 2018, it became clear that the feud between them was quite real. Catrall lashed out at Parker in an Instagram post after Catrall's brother died, saying that Parker was not her family nor her friend, putting a kibosh on any chances about a third film with her involvement.

** Creator/KimCattrall, who signed on as man-eater Samantha, was arguably the biggest name among the cast in the beginning. She was a bonafide movie star, having headlined ''Film/{{Mannequin}}'' and ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina.''
** According to a 2008 book proposal shopped by Clifford Streit, the real-life inspiration for the show’s character Stanford Blatch, tensions on set began because Cattrall was “a natural comedienne, and a scene-stealer in the best possible sense — the camera went right to her.” This was, it seems, a problem, given that Sarah Jessica Parker was playing the show’s heroine, Carrie.
** A clique began to form, leaving Cattrall out in the cold. Parker and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda), who’d known each other since their days as preteen actresses on Broadway, gravitated toward each other and pretty quickly included co-star Kristin Davis (Charlotte) in their group. For the first couple of years, Cattrall had a real ally on set in the form of series creator and producer Darren Star. But when he left after the second season and was replaced by Parker’s friend Michael Patrick King, Cattrall was completely isolated.

** Cattrall reluctantly signed on for the first follow-up movie in 2007. Despite the tension, the movie was a hit — making $415 million worldwide. Producers, including Parker, were eager to replicate the financial boon and wanted to make a second movie as soon as possible, but Cattrall held back. Soon, gossip started circulating about her “diva demands.” She eventually signed on, after demanding, and receiving, more money. Even with more money, by the time filming started, things were awkward.
** Reports surfaced in fall 2017 that Cattrall wasn’t interested in participating in a “Sex in the City 3” movie. Citing unnamed sources, a Daily Mail “exclusive” blamed the botched sequel plans on Cattrall’s “ridiculous demands.” Cattrall categorically denied that, tweeting that she had made clear she didn’t want to do a third “Sex and the City” movie back in 2016. In a subsequent interview with Piers Morgan, Cattrall also said she and her co-stars had “never been friends,” despite their on-screen bond.
** Lest there was any shred of remaining doubt about Cattrall’s feelings toward Parker, an Instagram post put the matter to rest after Cattrall's brother Chris died in February 2018. Parker had expressed sympathy for Cattrall’s family at a red-carpet event, telling magazines that “we all send her our love and condolences” while, in the same interview, not ruling out the possibility of a third ''Sex and the City'' movie but without Cattrall.
