Kristin Davis never had to diet for “Sex”
Glossies and fashion critics can be mean when it comes to calling an actress fat, but not the “Sex and the City” creators.
Kristen Davis aka Charlotte York has never forced by the show nor HBO to lose weight.
“You get a lot of criticism out in the world or on the Internet about how you look. Fat here, fat there. Hippy this, hippy that. That has been my entire career,” she told U.K.’s Red Magazine, “But never at work. No one at ‘Sex and The City’ has ever asked any of us four girls to lose weight. Thank God.”
Access Hollywood was able to nab an advance copy of Red Magazine.
The harsh reality in Hollywood is that it’s not uncommon for leading actresses to get harassed by network executives about their love handles. Margret Cho received so much lip from ABC suits about her appearance on her 1994 sitcom “American Girl,” that she lost a rapid amount of weight, resulting in kidney failure.
Davis, 45, stays healthy on a diet of chicken, salmon, eggs and side salads. The actress came to the public eye in the ‘90s series “Melrose Place.” Davis’ success on “Sex and the City” spurred a string of roles in “Couples Retreat,” “The Shaggy Dog” and “Deck the Halls.”
“I think I would have done OK without it (“Sex and the City”), but I don’t think any of us would have had this kind of career at this age if it hadn’t been for the larger thing ‘Sex and The City’ turned out to be, culturally,” she said.
“Sex and the City 2” opens in the U.S. on May 27 and in case you haven’t read the headlines, The Onion, reports that the FBI has uncovered the film’s secret plot despite Sarah Jessica Parker’s plan to keep it from the press. LOL.
