While perusing through television shows last night, I stumbled upon Sex in the City‘s SamanthaKim Cattrall in an I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter commercial. The 54-year-old actress is seen getting her ‘cougar’ fix as a younger French man feeds her.
“I’ve been dieting my whole life because I have a tremendous appetite,” she said recently at a brunch at Butter in New York to announce her new role as the spokeswoman for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.
Luckily Cattrall, 54, says that she grew up with a healthy attitude about food and exercise. “This generation of women that I’m in, we have been brought up with Jane Fonda workout tapes and fresh air is good for you and exercise every day and drink eight cups of water…. and it’s paid off at this time of my life,” says the actress. “It gets harder because parts of my body don’t want to be on a diet, but at the same time it gets me up in the morning to work out.”
So, what is her culinary weakness? “I make a really mean chocolate cake and a glass of milk. French food and anything creamy and whippy,” she adds. “And sometimes, it’s a drink – Campari and tonic [is my favorite].”
And while she she is stepping back into the dating pool, that isn’t the reason she maintains her figure. “I don’t do it for a guy. I do it for me. It’s about taking care of yourself.”
As for romance, Cattrall, who split from husband Mark Levinsonin 2003 says, “I am starting to date, but I’m just dipping my toes. I think, especially at this point in my life, I feel pretty happy. I like who I’ve become and it’s changing always. I’m kind of embracing that.”
Kim Cattrall wore a gorgeous red wrap dress at the premiere of ‘Meet Monica Velourd‘. Today we will recreate her look for less.
To recreate this look, we found a beautiful red knit wrap v-neck dress from The Limited, a great adjustable DUDAK belt available at ALDO, and a classic pair of Nicki Pumps from Rampage.
Then to top off the outfit, we added a lovely 24k gold-over-silver tornado chain necklace, and the perfect pair of 24k gold-over-silver two-tone love knot earrings. Both of these items are available at Kohl’s.
Kim looks great in this stunning outfit and you can too without breaking the bank. This whole look can be yours for under $160! Time to go shop!
Kim Cattrall would have been “fine” without ‘Sex and the City’.
The 53-year-old star – who won her role in the series about a group of four friends in New York at the age of 42 – claims that although the show turned her from a jobbing actress to a household name, she would have been happy without the success it has brought.
She said: “If it hadn’t come along I think I’d have been alright too. I’d have a really good, strong, journeyman actress career. That would have been fine.”
Kim – who plays Samantha Jones in the show and its spin-off movies – even said she didn’t take to the script when she first read it, saying she saw only a “miserable” woman and a group of people she “didn’t care” about.
Despite eventually signing on for the series, Kim admits she thought it was a “scary” thing to do.
She explained: “When you sign a contract to do a series, you’re effectively signing away six, possibly seven, years of your life based on 30 pages of dialogue. That’s a little scary.”
