SATC star is ‘Team Kim Cattrall’
WE KNOW what side Gilles Marini is on.
The actor, who played Kim Cattrall's hunky neighbour Dante in the 2008 Sex and the City movie, raved about the actress who publicly feuded with co-star Sarah Jessica Parker for the past several months, according to the New York Post.
"Kim is one of the most incredible women on planet Earth," he told Us Weekly on Wednesday. "She's absolutely phenomenal, kind, sweet, strong. What an actress."
He also said that the two are still in touch.
On her decision to not participate in a Sex and the City 3 - which was just the start of the feud between Cattrall and SJP - Marini defended her.
"We can't point fingers at anybody because they didn't want to make a movie," he said. "If it doesn't make them happy, they shouldn't do it, because then you'll regret it."
The beef between the two stars escalated when Cattrall said she and SJP were "never friends" despite years of filming together.
When the Divorce actress posted her condolences to Cattrall's Instagram after her brother went missing and was then found dead, the Police Academy star slammed her on social media.
"You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona," Cattrall said in February.
As the dust settled, SJP most recently said to a social media commenter who longed for a new SATC film said she was "not sure if I can imagine doing another movie without her."
But for Marini, he'd be in if he was ever asked.
"Are you kidding? It's the movie that made me," he said.
