Cynthia Nixon was scarlet when fans applauded Big for getting Carrie a closet in the SATC movie

In fact, she says she was ‘a little devastated’.

FOR ANYONE WHO doesn’t know, Sex and the City’s principle character, Carrie Bradshaw, loves clothes.


We mean, she is absolutely mad for them. Can’t get enough. Always with the shopping.

So, when the movies followed the TV show’s completion in 2004, viewers were hardly surprised when Carrie ask her partner, Big, for a ‘really big closet’ upon setting up home together.


But so far, so Carrie, right?

Well, apparently Cynthia Nixon, who plays Carrie’s best friend Miranda, was scarlet over the audience’s reaction to Big’s response to Carrie’s request.


He got the girl the closet, fans of the film applauded, and apparently Cynthia Nixon died a little inside.

“I was a little devastated,” she told Wendy Williams during an appearance on the chatshow.

It seemed to me that the show was so much about female empowerment and about women making their own choices and women standing up for what they wanted and supporting themselves.

In fact, Cynthia felt that this particular scene negated some of the biggest themes of the show.

So, to me, to have this scene be a climax of the film, that your very wealthy husband built you a really nice closet for your clothes, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s not really what you love about the show, is it?’ ‘Cause that’s not what we were making it for.”

So, if you did find yourself cheering Carrie’s closet, just know that Cynthia Nixon is far from impressed with you.
