Jason Lewis of ‘Sex and the City’ Picks a Side in the Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall Feud
During an interview with KTLA 5 on Wednesday, Jason Lewis, who played Samantha’s love interest Smith Jerrod in the Sex and the City television series and film, weighed in on the Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall feud.
When asked about the feud, the 46-year-old actor replied, “If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.”
Lewis continued, “Listen, I have to say that Sarah was always just so lovely and such a consummate professional, and I think that people should remember their graciousness and the things that have been given to them.”
He added, “And I’m gonna stop there because I’ve got nothing good to say.”
When asked if that meant he was on “Team Sarah,” Jason Lewis replied, “I might just have to say yeah … what a gracious lady. She was always so good to me.”
“Were other people not as good to you?” interviewer Sam Rubin asked.
“Sarah was amazing,” Lewis laughed.
The feud between the two actresses first began late last year when news broke that a third Sex and the City film had been scrapped because Cattrall would not return.
The bitter saga between Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker got exponentially worse earlier this month. After the tragic death of Cattrall’s younger brother, Christopher, Cattrall made it very clear she didn’t care for Parker’s “hypocritical” condolences.
In an Instagram post, Cattrall wrote, “I don’t need your love or support @sarahjessicaparker.”
The actress captioned the post stating Parker wasn’t her friend. Cattrall wrote:
My mom asked me today “When will that Sarah Jessica Parker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already). You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your “nice girl” persona.
