hey hey! the buzz over sex and the city 2 (opening may 27th) is in total high gear right now! while in NYC – i could have sworn sarah jessica parker was following me (i don’t mean on twitter!) i saw her ‘getting carried away’ on huge billboards located on many corners, sides of buses, the subway, etc.! i’ve only been back in los angeles for a couple of hours and i already saw four or five billboards with ‘carrie bradshaw’ and company (the studio is spending tons of money on marketing / promotion but they will easily recoup the expense) i seriously can’t wait to see the movie! i adore all four ladies (who doesn’t?!) i can’t even pick a fave! the girls all have such different personalities yet they blend together so damn well – i’m definitely hoping there will be another sequel (unless this one sucks)
below cynthia nixon (who plays lovable legal eagle miranda hobbes) is looking super fabulous and sexy in the latest issue of the advocate – i have to admit i was a bit shocked when she came out as a lesbian a few years ago but i’m super glad she did – she has helped to raise visibility and awareness while becoming a marriage equality activist – i don’t think the decision hurt her career at all (plus ms. nixon survived breast cancer – she’s a trooper) girlfriend appears to be completely comfortable in her own skin – that’s how it really should be – for everyone! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo
For years, people on the street have been calling her “Miranda,” the cynical, type A lawyer Cynthia Nixon made famous on HBO’s Sex and the City. Six years later, now that she’s come out as gay, survived breast cancer, and stepped up as a marriage equality activist, her fans now recognize her for her.
In her new interview with The Advocate, Nixon talks about her slow coming-out after she began dating her now-fiancée, Christine Marinoni. After the couple had spent many months together, the press started speculating about their relationship. Nixon hired a publicist who warned her to stay out of the headlines. Uncomfortable with that route, Nixon soon turned to Kelly Bush, an openly gay publicist. Bush suggested Nixon confirm the rumors, and that is just what she did. “I was like, ‘Really, we can just confirm?'” Nixon tells The Advocate. “So that’s just what we did. It was so fantastic.”
