Kim Cattrall Is Blaming Her Real Life Divorce On Samantha Jones

The Sex and the City actress explains why the show took its toll. 

Kim Cattrall says that it was Sex and the City that killed her marriage. 

“It [SATC] cost me my marriage, because I was never home,” Cattrall told News.AU. “I was never there and my husband got lonely and upset and competitive, and it was really difficult, it was really hard. You end up spending more time with my Sex and the City family than I did with my real family.”

The sexy actress, now 60, has married, and divorced, three times. She divorced her first husband, writer Larry Davis, in 1979. She left architect Andreas Lyson, after seven years in1989, and Kim and her third husband, Mark Levinson, split after six years together.

“[The show] it was really fun, but there was always a wave coming towards you and you had to learn to dive under and swim,” she said. “On weekends you’d finish filming at 9 A.M. on Saturday morning, and I had to be back at 5 A.M. in the morning on Monday so I basically had a day and a half off, and in that day and a half I would need to learn my lines for the whole next week. So after a while you just get really tired, and go a bit nuts, and you’re sleep-deprived as well.

“It was 18-19 hour days, consistently,” she said. “Looking back on that [SATC] the things that I did give up were because I wanted to be a professional actor.”

As for a third installment of the Sex and the City movie, she says it’s up in the air.

“We don’t know about number three,” she said. “I think it could happen, but I don’t know if it should happen. And I would hate to mar the ground that we have really gained. And look, I wouldn’t want to write it.”
