Parker, who played columnist Carrie Bradshaw in the hit US series, insisted she never spoke badly about Cattrall after the actress said she did not want to reprise her role as “try sexual” Samantha Jones in a third Sex and the City film.

Speaking to People, Parker said: “I never talked about it, except [to say] that some of us were disappointed [about the movie not happening].”

Parker said she didn’t rise to the bait when Cattrall said she “could have been nicer” about the speculation of her pulling out of the franchise during an appearance on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

Parker continued: “I never responded to the conversation Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me. We had this experience and it was amazing, and nothing will ever be like it.

“I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing that part. So there was no fight – it was completely fabricated, because I actually never responded. And I won’t, because she needed to say what she needed to say, and that is her privilege.”

Parker’s comments come days after Cattrall accused Parker of “exploiting” the sudden death of her brother Chris Cattrall to “restore [her] ‘nice girl’ persona” after she reached out to her former co-star at the weekend.

Parker wrote: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”

Cattrall posted a picture of the words: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker.”

She captioned the image: “My Mom 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.”

Cattrall's response to Cynthia Nixon, who played lawyer Miranda Hobbes in Sex and the City, was markedly different. She thanked the actress for reaching out, writing: “Cynthia, hearing your voice meant so much to me. Thank you for reaching out. Love Kim #SexandtheCity.”
