And Just Like That... SATC Star Kristin Davis Responds To Cruel Comments About Her Appearance

Ever since Sex And The City spin-off And Just Like That dropped in December, stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon have been subjected to endless comments over their appearances.

From ageist comments about their looks, to speculation over whether they've 'had work done', cruel trolls have been taking to social media to post totally unnecessary comments week on week.

Kristin is now 56 while SJP is also 56 and Cynthia is 55 - almost 24 years after they first burst onto our screens. Now, comments made by Kristin in December have resurfaced online, with the actress telling the Sunday Times just how 'angry' she is over the constant vitriol.

She said: “Everyone wants to comment, pro or nay or whatever, on our hair and our faces and our this and our that.

“The level of intensity of it was a shock… I feel angry and I don't want to feel angry all the time, so I don't look at it. I just know it's there.”

Kristin pointed to social media as one of the problems. "That's the problem with social media, right, is that you don't know what those people are doing. You don't know anything about them. They're just hurling bombs at you. It makes me angry," she continued.

She also spoke about the criticism she received two decades ago, when the OG series of Sex And The City was broadcast.

“They would write articles every week about how I was ‘pear-shaped,’ which I didn't feel was a compliment at the time. It would stress me out a fair amount because I couldn't avoid it. I kind of feel like that's how it is now too," she said.

"But I also feel — I'm going to be blunt — I feel like, 'F**k you. F**k you people, like, come over here and do it better.’ You know what I mean? Like, what are you doing?”

SJP has also spoken out about the comments, telling Vogue: “There's so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never happen about a man.

"... I don't know what to tell you people! Especially on social media. Everyone has something to say. 'She has too many wrinkles, she doesn't have enough wrinkles.’

“It almost feels as if people don't want us to be perfectly okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy us being pained by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if that makes you feel better.

“I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop ageing? Disappear?”

Sigh. When will the world stop feeling entitled to comment on women's appearances?
