Not only will Kim Cattrall be missing from HBO Max’s approaching “Sex and the City” reboot, but PETA is hoping the exhibit will ditch the fur, far too.
In a letter to star and government producer Sarah Jessica Parker acquired by Website page Six, the animal rights corporation urges Parker give up the luxe — and controversial — goods in favor of vegan fur.
“I’m creating to attraction to you to make this model fur-no cost, compared with the initial. Since the collection ended in 2004, attitudes towards fur have shifted radically and most designers have discontinued it,” PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews writes in the letter.
“Of training course, what we would really like to listen to is that you embrace the spirit of this month’s Vogue Italia, which is focused to animals and phone calls on the style planet 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 immediately return Website page Six’s request for remark.
Through the initial HBO collection, Carrie Bradshaw (Parker) wore a vintage fur coat to retain heat throughout New York City’s blistery nights. Maybe 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 gorgeous (and animal-pleasant) faux furs — as noted by Website page Six Design.
Notably, the to start with “Sex and the City” movie (2008) capabilities a scene in which the females are confronted by anti-fur activists outside of New York Trend Week. Soon after one particular activist screams “Fur is murder!” and throws pink paint on Samantha Jones’ white fur coat, the character — who’d moved to Los Angeles — smiles wistfully and states, “God, I overlook New York.”
HBO Max verified late Sunday that the collection, minus Cattrall’s Samantha, would be again for 10-episodes nonetheless, Website page Six exclusively revealed in December that a reboot was in the is effective.
Whilst Parker and Cattrall have been engaged in an alleged feud for years, Parker explained she and the cast will overlook Cattrall’s presence.
