Cynthia Nixon Says She Wasn’t Happy With The Ending Of The Sex And The City Film
"I was a little devastated by that."
Actress turned politician Cynthia Nixon had her first TV interview as candidate for governor on New York on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday. The Sex and the City star had a lot to talk about with Wendy, including why she’s running for government, her thoughts on gun control and the legalisation of marijuana. She also touched on her Sex and the City days during the interview.
Here are the main things we can take from Cynthia’s first interview as a NYC governor candidate.
She wasn’t happy with the ending of the Sex and the City movie
Although she has ditched the Miranda red hair, Cynthia still likes to talk about her SATC days. Speaking to Wendy, Cynthia revealed that she was really unhappy with the ending of the movie where Big reveals the massive closet he’s built Carrie in their new home.
The actress was disappointed about the movie’s “devastating” ending, saying that Carrie getting her dream closet was a cop-out.
I was a little devastated by that, because it seemed to me that the show was so much about female empowerment and about women making their own choices.
[It was about] women standing up for what they wanted and supporting themselves, so to me, to have… the climax of the film [as] that, your very wealthy husband builds you a really nice closet for your clothes, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s not really what you love about the show, is it?’
Because that’s not what we were making it for.
She really loves New York
People were quite surprised at Cynthia’s career turn from actress to politician, however she states that the reason for her career change is that she simply “loves New York”.
Cynthia also had a lot to say about the election of president Donald Trump, saying:
I have to say that the election of Donald Trump was a real wakeup call. And it was a wakeup call for women across the country that if we don’t like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up and we have to get involved like never before.
She’s up for the legalisation of weed
Cynthia isn’t afraid to voice her opinions, telling Wendy she is “absolutely for the legalization of marijuana” during her interview. She added: “Let’s capture some of that revenue.”
She wants women to get behind her
Cynthia seems to be targeting women in New York for her campaign. By choosing Wendy Williams for her first interview — which has a massive viewership of women age 25 to 54, she’s signalling that she’s targeting female voters. She also first announced she was running for governor in an interview with Glamour magazine. When Wendy asked specifically how black women can help Cynthia become governor, she answered:
They are the cornerstone, they are the backbone of the Democratic Party and we need to let them lead.
Miranda Hobbes for president!
