Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (21)

  • Kim: (in 2008 about filming "Sex and the City: The Movie") I looked around the table, and here were these people with whom I've spent the last ten years of my life. Some of them were babies when I first met them-like the boy who plays Miranda's son on the show-so I really got emotional. Sex and the City has been a seminal part of our lives, and the movie gave us this amazing opportunity to be together again. It's the biggest dysfunctional family you could ever want to belong to.

  • Kim: (claiming sex is the best cure for jet lag) I find the best thing to do is to not sleep. My advice is to as soon as you arrive, stay up as long as you can and have as much fun as you can, if you know what I mean, and then go to sleep.

  • Kim: (after receiving the 'Ultimate Icon' award at the Cosmopolitan Magazine Ultimate Women of the Year 2008 event) I will never, ever get used to receiving these awards because I always think of an icon as someone so much more important than I am, and especially some of the women in that room. They're saving people's lives - I mean, I make people laugh, hopefully, and I entertain them and I love to do that, but I am really inspired by these men and women who really give up so much of their lives and really change the world.

  • Kim: (vowing never to have plastic surgery) I had a great time in my youth and I still feel youthful. I've no desire to look as though I'm in my 20s.

  • Kim: (About the first day of shooting "Sex and the City: The Movie".) We were just supposed to walk down the street. But there were so many people out there watching, and paparazzi, trying to get the first shot of the four of us together. I have felt overwhelmed before, but that day I felt like a Beatle.

  • Kim: (about having a cameo as Britney Spears' mother in the 2002 film "Crossroads") I figured that if I was going to play somebody's mother, why not play hers? She is so dynamic and wonderful. We fit it in with shooting Sex and the City, and I remember going into the trailer and saying to the other three girls on the show, "I have this offer to play Britney Spears' mom. What do you think?" And they were all like, "You've got to do it!" because they love her music, and we play her music all the time when we're in the studio, getting made up.

  • Kim: (on Sex and the City) The show is celebrating what it's like to be a woman. We do things people think about but don't vocalize. It gives men and women permission to talk in a way that is healthy.

  • Kim: (in November 2007, on the set of Sex & the City) It will be nice to step into Samantha's skin again but I'm only doing the film for the money. Samantha is very dear to me and I have such a wonderful time playing her, but I can't say more for the experience than wanting financial security.
