Many fans were upset to find out that that one of the original Sex and the City stars, Kim Cattrall, wasn't appearing in the sequel.

News of 'Just Like That' had viewers envisioning a remake of the original, but one of the leading ladies wasn't included.

Kim has now shared her feelings about the sequel, and not being included.

It turns out she found out about the reboot online, too. Ouch.

She told Variety: "I was never asked to be part of the reboot. I made my feelings clear after the possible third movie, so I found out about it like everyone else did — on social media."

She described the storyline for her character Samantha as 'heartbreaking'.

"It’s heartbreaking," she said. "... Everything has to grow, or it dies. I felt that when the series ended, I thought that’s smart. We’re not repeating ourselves. And then the movie to end all the loose ends. And then there’s another movie. And then there’s another movie?"

Kim was asked about reports Sarah Jessica Parker said she 'wouldn't be OK' with Kim playing Samantha again, she said: "Well, it would never happen anyway. So nobody has to worry about that."

SJP told Variety: "I don’t think I would, because I think there’s just too much public history of feelings on her part that she’s shared."

Kim broke the internet after tweeting: “My Mum asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.

"Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”

SJP responded with: "I don't dislike her. I've never said that. Never would. Samantha isn't part of this story [for the reboot]. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do."

Oh dear. Hopefully they can make up some day.
