Whether you’re a fan of the show or not, Sex and the City without a doubt helped bring luxury fashion to mainstream audience. Let’s face it, when it first aired, would the average 20-something-year-old girl who doesn’t work in fashion know designers like Christian Louboutin, Christian Dior or Balenciaga? Most likely not. Of course it was unrealistic in many senses of the word, but Carrie Bradshaw truly became a fashion icon of a generation. It’s apparent that someone disagrees very much. And that someone is Mr. Big.

Chris North who played Big in Sex and the City the series and movies, sat down with New Australia and opened up about his feelings toward the show and Sarah Jessica Parker‘s character. Take for example how he feels about how Big was portrayed. “One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t. He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore! [laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.”

Oof.

Oh, and as far as that rumor of another Sex and the City movie? Well North isn’t getting anyone’s hopes up. “Is there going to be another [Sex and the City] movie? The tweets! I can’t believe those girls are tweeting, they’re being very naughty. I don’t go near Twitter, it’s all bulls**t. I’ll believe it when they say ‘Action!’ and until then I don’t pay any attention. Sure, I’ve heard rumours, but they’ve been sayin’ that s**t for 10 years. It’d be a great thing, but for now it’s all just Tweety-pie s**t.

Well folks, there you have it. Head over to News Australia for more information.
