Not only will Kim Cattrall be lacking from HBO Max’s forthcoming “Sex and the City” reboot, but PETA is hoping the exhibit will ditch the fur, too.
In a letter to star and govt producer Sarah Jessica Parker acquired by Page Six, the animal rights business urges Parker give up the luxe — and controversial — goods in favor of vegan fur.
“I’m producing to attraction to you to make this variation fur-totally free, unlike the first. Because the series finished in 2004, attitudes towards fur have shifted substantially and most designers have discontinued it,” PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews writes in the letter.
“Of system, what we would like to listen to is that you embrace the spirit of this month’s Vogue Italia, which is devoted to animals and calls on the manner world to shift away not just from fur but also from all cruelly acquired, animal-derived materials,” the letter carries on.
A rep for Parker didn’t promptly return Page Six’s request for comment.
All through the first HBO series, Carrie Bradshaw (Parker) wore a classic fur coat to continue to keep warm for the duration of New York City’s blistery nights. Probably in the reboot, titled “And Just Like That,” the costume designer will swap out the actual furs for one particular of Apparis‘ or Stella McCartney‘s beautiful (and animal-welcoming) faux furs — as famous by Page Six Fashion.
Notably, the first “Sex and the City” motion picture (2008) functions a scene in which the females are confronted by anti-fur activists outside of New York Trend Week. Immediately after one particular activist screams “Fur is murder!” and throws crimson paint on Samantha Jones’ white fur coat, the character — who’d moved to Los Angeles — smiles wistfully and states, “God, I miss New York.”
HBO Max verified late Sunday that the series, minus Cattrall’s Samantha, would be back for 10-episodes even so, Page Six exclusively disclosed in December that a reboot was in the functions.
Even though Parker and Cattrall have been engaged in an alleged feud for a long time, Parker reported she and the forged will miss Cattrall’s presence.
