1/35. During an interview, it was revealed that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall loathed each other since the first season. The relationship became even more strained when Parker was made producer; their on screen friendship was so well done that fans had no idea.

5/35. Even when she was being shot from the waist up, Cattrall insisted on wearing heels. She said it made her feel more like Samantha.
