You can always count on Kim Cattrall to tell it like it is.
If the last few years of back-and-forth with literally anyone who's had something to say about the scrapped plans for a third Sex and the City film and the erstwhile Samantha Jones' steadfast desire to have nothing to do with it has proven anything, it's that the spitfire character from HBO's groundbreaking comedy was more like the actress bringing her to life than we ever really knew.
After all, when did Sam Jones ever back down from a fight?
Whether it's been fighting off reports of diva demands, getting real about her relationship (or lack thereof) with former co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, or bluntly telling SATC fans hungry for more to move the hell on, Cattrall has not held back. And while her blunt form of honesty is nothing new—truthfully, it may be her honest assessment of pay disparity amongst her SATC co-stars that started all this animosity in the first place—we can certainly expect more of it now that she's returning to TV as the lead in Fox's new southern Gothic soap Filthy Rich, debuting this fall.
While we await her return to the small screen, let's celebrate Cattrall's birthday—she turns 64 on Friday, Aug. 21—by taking a look at her most DGAF quotes. After all, who doesn't love a little refreshing candor on their birthday?
Oh, and you can relive Cattrall's iconic Samantha Jones role all weekend long as E! is airing the entire series and both SATC films. The SATC marathon will kick off with the first film, aptly titled Sex and the City, at 2:30 p.m. on Friday. If you can't catch that viewing, don't fret, as the first film will air again come 5:30 p.m.
For those over the age of 21, we suggest you mix a cosmo as season one will begin airing at 8:30 p.m. Come check out all the iconic fashion donned by Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda as the entire series will air throughout the weekend.
Closing out the marathon, on Sunday, Aug. 23, will be another screening of the first film at 8 p.m. and an airing of the second film, Sex and the City 2, at 11 p.m.
Sex and the City fans have so much to celebrate!
Now, the moment you've been waiting for, Cattrall's most DGAF quotes:
Never change, Kim.
