- There’s a handsome politician out there with a particularly golden fetish.
- There’s a creepily handsy guy working at a shoe store offering free designer shoes to a customer in exchange for giving their feet a “little rub”.
- Someone DID get dumped via a post-it note.
- And we’re sure you can think of PLENTY more crazy encounters!
If you’re still obsessed with Sex and the City, even though the show wrapped years ago, you’re not alone.
It’s stood the test of time for a good reason – as it turns out, a large part of the show’s relatability factor is because all those crazy plotlines and characters have an element of truth to them.
Cynthia Nixon, who played Miranda, recently revealed to IMDb that the show’s events are all based on real-life happening and encounters.
“They had a rule in the writer’s room that they couldn’t put anything in an episode that hadn’t happened to someone in the writer’s room, or someone they knew first-hand,” she said.
“It couldn’t be, like, my father’s brother’s sister’s shoe repair guy heard once.”
“So the outlandish physical, sexual things that happened, they really did happen. They’re not just tall tales.”
So, yes, that means:
On the show’s success, Cynthia went on to say, “We’re sort of hungry for seeing how women interact with each other. There’s often one girl in a movie, maybe two, and they never even meet each other.”
“There’s a way that people are when they’re only with their own gender - it’s interesting to watch.”
“Certainly it was a show for women, but I think men were fascinated by how women talk about men, sex and dating, when men were not around.”
