Yesterday, Variety published a big interview with Kim Cattrall in which she talked about her career, her decision to step away from Sex And The City, and how she was never asked to take part in the show’s sequel, And Just Like That…

She clearly had no regrets about her decision, saying, “Can you imagine going back to a job you did 25 years ago? And the job didn’t get easier; it got more complicated in the sense of how are you going to progress with these characters? Everything has to grow, or it dies.”

The interview coincided with Cattrall receiving one of the magazine’s Power of Women awards, which was presented to her last night at a glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles.

It surely can’t be a coincidence that Cattrall was accompanied to the awards event by three other people closely linked to Sex And The City who were also not involved with the sequel.

These were: author Candace Bushnell, on whose book Sex And The City was based; stylist and designer Patricia Field, who was behind so many of the clothing choices the characters wore, and series creator Darren Star, who has since moved on to success with other shows, such as Emily In Paris.

“It means everything. We spent over 25 years of our lives together,” Cattrall told Variety of attending the event with her longtime friends and collaborators.

During her acceptance speech, she also thanked the three personally.

She thanked Bushnell for “her strong representation of women,” Darren Star “for making so many of my dreams come true, for your guidance, your love and support” and Field for “being an actor’s best friend on and off set [and] her gift and love of fashion.”

Star introduced Cattrall to the stage. By way of introduction, he read a mock letter from the character Samantha Jones to Cattrall.

“Like me, you’re a strong, self-made woman who would rather take the road less traveled,” the letter noted. “You make tough creative choices in your life that allow you to grow as a person and an artist.”

Variety’s 2022 Power of Women ceremony, in conjunction with Lifetime, honored Cattrall for her continued work with nonprofit The Actors Fund.

Cattrall told Variety she still had not watched And Just Like That….

Career-wise, Cattrall’s been busy lately with Hulu’s How I Met Your Father (she narrates the story as the elder version of Sophie, played when younger by Hilary Duff), and a role on the Peacock reboot of Queer As Folk, due out later this year. She will also be seen opposite Robert DeNiro in the comedy, About My Father.
