Fear 97 of 101–Kim Cattrall

with 4 comments

So, I know that there are some people out there who really like Kim Cattrall. I think that she is quite an interesting actress at times and that she is a fairly nice looking woman for her age (plastic surgery and all that stuff aside…because really who hasn’t had plastic surgery in Hollywood these days). However, by these same tokens, Kim Cattrall is quite a frightening lady because she is a woman who seems like she might eat you alive if you ever got too close to her (much like Sharon Stone).

**She’s been around forever seems like–It’s kind of eerie feeling to know that some one is 54 years old and does look terribly different than she did when she arrived on the scene. Given, she has had some work done. However, she looks relatively well-preserved for her age of 54. People who seem to age slowly (or not at all…there are some people who always look the same) are a little odd and frightening. Think Cher.


**She is a powerful and domineering woman on screen–There’s got to be something to it in real life. Right?

**The fact that she’s affiliated with Sex and the City–Honestly, I don’t see the appeal of the show. However, I am a guy (shocker right…not really but I like to play up the suspense of things). The idea of hyper femininity that represents itself so well using the angel / whore dichotomy (thank you Harwell for you mental influence) seems to be a bad example for the impressionable ones out there. I find it scary arming future women with this concept of “woman power” to be kind of alarming and frightening as well.  (For people unfamiliar with the show, Cattrall plays Samantha…who is rather whorish.)

So, there you have it…more to come.

  1. Frankly, I’m shocked by your Sex and the City analysis. I think you’re a little bit sexist.

    • It wasn’t meant to be sexist. However, I think that the feminine portrayals on the show are very, very skewed…I’m all for woman power, but I think that the way they show women taking the power is derogatory to the fight in a lot of ways.

  2. To be fair, I think you are mainly objecting to the way Kim Cattrall’s Samantha takes power. The other characters are fairly realistic.

    • I think that Samantha is a ho…that’s my thing…I think that she is a poor role model for some people because people do look up to those sorts of powerful women. Look at Cleopatra. She was a ho and people look up to her.
