Why you’ve got to love Samantha Jones

(Warning, strong language in video clips and images)








Me and Samantha Jones have just two things in common: we both work in PR, and we both lived in New York. Me and Kim Cattrall have nothing in common: she’s 59, unmarried, childless, and frankly, fabulous. Oh, and glasses.

But, for reasons I can’t quite fathom, the fictional Samantha Jones from Sex in the City, and the actress who plays her, Kim Cattrall, are two of my biggest heroines/girl crushes, whatever you want to call them.

No character, ever, has made me laugh out loud so much. I’ve rarely been inspired to be more confident, more comfortable with myself, than by this willowy, sexy, independent lady. When I wasn’t sure I’d ever meet the right man, or have kids, she was one of the voices I listened to about the positive side of that. Please do listen to Kim Cattrall on this subject in her Woman’s Hour Radio 4 edit this week. It’s so very interesting.

Just in case you’ve forgotten how awesome Samantha Jones could be, here are some of my very favourite bits:

The relationship face

The job


Do you love her, or hate her? I’ll always find her funny, no matter how much of an inner prude I can be!
