Fans think Kim Cattrall might've been shading her time on the sex of Sex and the City during her Screen Icon acceptance speech.
Cattrall was present with the award at the Glamour Women of the Year Award 2022 ceremony and her speech drew questions from fans.
Cattrall, who played highly-sexed PR Samantha Jones in the original Sex and the City series, has a well-documented feud between herself and co-star, Sarah Jessica Parker.
For those not familiar, according to rumours Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker fell out over money and Parker being given an executive producer title on the second season of the TV show.
Cattrall later claimed in a 2017 interview Parker 'could've been nicer' to her, adding: "I don't know what her issue is."
For her part, Parker said: "I’ve spent a lot of years working really hard to always be decent to everybody on the set, to take care of people, to be responsible to and for people, both my employers and the people that I feel I’m responsible for as a producer of the show. And there just isn’t anyone else who’s ever talked about me this way."
Things reached a tipping point when Cattrall wasn't invited back for spin-off series And Just Like That, so now fans are hypervigilant for any potential shade she's throwing.
While Cattrall, 65, has not explicitly spoken out about her treatment on set, fans think she might've been alluding to her time on the show in her latest comments.
During the speech, she said: "It's so good to be home," this was a reference to her being born in the UK and returning there for the ceremony.
Then she added: "This is what happens when you go where you're celebrated and not where you're tolerated."
Before going on to add: "I have been an actor, working in film, television, and theatre for over 50 friggin' years. I've played senators, queens, presidents, trailer park mums, and vampires. I started as a young ingenue, now I'm the senior actor on the set… But I can still rock this dress."
And her use of the word 'tolerated' is what some fans said was subtle shade at her time on the show.
People, obviously, took to Twitter to comment on the whole situation, saying: "Ouch is that meant for anyone in particular?"
Another added: "Happy for you, but enough with the shade."
And we're not exactly sure Cattrall was shading the show, we just think that she was enjoying herself.
Elsewhere in the speech, the star went on to add: "Representation is validation. If people find empowerment in any character that I have helped to create, then my job has been successful. In these uncertain times – as my adopted country is deciding its future as we speak – we need strong female role models. As an actor and now a tough-ass producer, I am eager and committed to sharing those female stories. I hope you'll all be watching and cheering us on."
It was an important message, especially since before the awards she told Glamour: "I experience [misogyny] every day, especially when I’m by myself. But when I’m with my partner, other men know I have backup – and I hate it that, even these times, this is still the case. I get treated differently when I’m with a man, especially my partner."
