Sarah Jessica Parker on her 'fight' with Kim Cattrall: 'I never muttered an unkind word.'

I think we can all agree that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall have made up for that god-awful Sex and the City 2 movie with the epic and glorious saga that is their ‘feud’. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Most women who work together are able to be respectful, polite and probably form some semblance of a friendship, but Parker, 53, and Cattrall, 61, are not those women.

Things first ignited in October last year when Cattrall appeared on Piers Morgan’s chat show and said she wouldn’t agree to a third Sex and the City movie because of a “toxic relationship” with Parker and her co-stars.

Then, Cattrall’s 55-year-old brother was found dead in early February and Parker publicly expressed her condolences. Cattrall couldn’t stomach her sympathy, firing back: “you are not my family, you are not my friend. Stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona”.

But now, Parker is denying there's even a 'feud' at all.

"I’d just like to remind everybody that there is no catfight," she said.

"I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word, so I would love to redefine it."

She also said she was friends with all of the women on Sex and the City, so she has no idea what Cattrall's going on about.

"I also want to remind everybody that there were four women on the set and I spent equal time with all of them, so this was not a set with two women who didn’t get along," she added.

Parker said while she and co-stars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis are disappointed Cattrall has decided not to make a third Sex and the City movie, they ultimately respect her decision to bow out of the hit franchise.

And just to really drive her point home, Parker reiterated that there is no catfight. Nope, nothing to see here, folks.

"There is no catfight, there never has been a catfight. I’ve never fought with someone publicly in my life, nor would I. And I spent time with all of the women on the set. People need to recall that it wasn’t just two women on the set fighting because that just never happened," she said.

"We are enormously proud of what we got to do and I don’t want someone sharing thoughts publicly, which is Kim’s right to do and that is what it is, but we spent 10, 12 years of our life doing something that I really loved and I feel privileged to be part of and I don’t want this to eclipse it or change its experience for that audience that was so good to us for so long."
