Cynthia Nixon Defends 'Sex and the City' and '' Amid Backlash

The actress shares her perspectives on the criticism faced by 'Sex and the City' and its spin-off, 'And Just Like That...', emphasizing the importance of pushing boundaries in television.

AceShowbiz - Cynthia Nixon, who portrays Miranda Hobbes in both "Sex and the City" and its sequel "And Just Like That...", recently discussed the backlash that both shows have received throughout their run.

Initially airing in 1998, "Sex and the City" drew criticism for its portrayal of women. "They kept saying over and over, 'These aren't really women, these are gay men in disguise. Women don't talk like this. Women don't talk about sex like this,'" Nixon recalled.

Despite the negative reception, Nixon believes that "And Just Like That..." continues to challenge societal norms. "I think that's what's so great about 'And Just Like That...'. We keep pushing the boundaries. We're not going to do the same old stuff that was once shocking that you've now got used to," she said.

Regarding the controversy surrounding the non-binary character Che Diaz, Nixon expressed admiration for the representation they provide. "We have built a character who is a human being, who is imperfect, who's complex, who is not here to be liked, who's not here for anybody's approval. They're here to be themselves," she said.

Nixon's comments highlight the ongoing debate surrounding the representation of women and marginalized communities in entertainment. While some critics argue that "Sex and the City" and "And Just Like That..." perpetuate stereotypes, others applaud the shows for their willingness to address challenging topics and push the boundaries of societal expectations.
