“I’ve always wanted to have children. That never happened. And I thought, ‘Well, I’ll do it next year. I’ll do it after this film. And then there was, ‘Oh I’m single’… there is a feeling you give up a lot on this job, but you have to get a lot back, too. Luckily I have great friends and I have found a tremendous amount of happiness in mentoring young actors. They’re like my kids. [The price I've paid as an actor] is that I’ve been very lonely a lot in my life. I’ve had two marriages and I loved both my husbands very much, but I didn’t see very much of them. The length of my work days is really hard on relationships. You never see anybody and that’s a very tough thing for a woman.”
- Kim Cattrall, lamenting her loneliness.
Ok, there’s no snark here, and no sarcasm. Really. I’m just sharing Kim’s quote here so we can all band together and hook her up with the people who give Angelina her children. The woman’s suffered through two Sex and the City movies, she deserves that much. Let’s get Kim a baby and a break, Sandra Bullock style, what do you say?
You would think that after all these years of her most famous character being labeled a cougar that Kim Cattrall would have learned to embrace the term. Instead Kim’s speaking out against how hurtful and anti-woman she finds the expression to be:
I really take umbrage to the code ‘cougar.’ I think cougar has a negative connotation, and I don’t see anything negative about Samantha [her 'SATC' character] and her sexuality, sensuality and choice.”
I don’t think she stands or sits in bars waiting for young men to prey on… And I think that’s something that people who are uncomfortable with strong women have labeled her.
Personally, I’m less offended than I am grossed out by the term, so maybe Kim has a point. Whenever I think of a cougar, I immediately think of Stiffler’s mom blowing one of my friends in a bar bathroom or something. Yeahhhh… Maybe we should quit that word.

Honestly, she looks like pre-eleventh grade summer school teacher, but whatever. Apparently this look is now known as “vintage” or “retro”.
