I don’t know if I wholly believe this…BUT I LIKE IT.
According to Cynthia Nixon, AKA Miranda Hobbes, all of the insane and (in my opinion) cartoonish plot lines for the HBO show were inspired by actual events that happened to the show’s writers or people they were close with.
That makes me have pretty much no hope for humanity, but OKAY.
During a recent IMDb Asks interview (skip to 16:10 if you’re lazy), the actress came clean:
“Even though crazy and outlandish things happen in Sex and the City, fantastical things seemingly, they had a rule in the writer’s room that nothing — they couldn’t put anything in an episode that hadn’t literally happened to someone in the writer’s room or someone that they knew firsthand…The outlandish, physical, sexual things that happened, they really happened. They weren’t just tall tales.”
Woah. if this is true (and I’m not sure it is) TV writers and their friends certainly are FRISKY, aren’t they?
Do you believe it?
