Cynthia Nixon: “In SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time”

Cynthia-Nixon-sex-city-5 - Cynthia Nixon: "In SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time"

Comparing Sex and the City with Girls:

 ‘I think Girls is really important. When sex was bad on Sex and the City it was funny. And the worse it was, the funnier it was. But when sex is bad on Girls, it can be really hard to watch, and it’s sometimes abusive, and it’s important to show that.’

On body image in the two shows:

‘Plus, in SATC we had to be thin and look great all the time; in Girls, they have permission to be more real and less airbrushed. I’d always worked happily without focusing much on the way I looked, so it was like a whole undiscovered country.’

… says 50 ear-old Cynthia in The Edit this month.

Well, it’s all true but Sex and the City was pretty groundbreaking back then too, for different reasons. It dared to aproach the subject of women being sexual beings too, and it covered a wide range of subjects, from friendship to relationships, infertility, cancer… It’s my favourite tv show ever (let’s not talk about the movies…) and even tho as I grow older I can see it has a lot of flaws, I still love it, no apologies. Plus I find that Girls tries too hard to be quirky and a lot of the nudity is for shock value (there’s… Read more »

Her character was my favorite in a show I could never identify with. I binge watched it after I broke up with my longtime boyfriend, and the characters generally just made me feel like a better person because they were quite terrible.

What she was clearly thin although next to Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall I’m sure it was hard to be viewed as such. Her character was definite the most bearable and least self absorbed. Plus as she had a real career I think it’s fitting that she was some super skinny fashionista I.e. Carrie.
