No, Kim Cattrall didn’t have cancer in real life like her character, Samantha Jones, in S*x and the City. The 66-year-old actually (really) has never had a problem with her breasts.

Kim Cattrall from Netflix‘s Glamorous is a British-Canadian actress known for her versatile performances in film, television, and theater. Born on August 21, 1956, in Liverpool, England, she moved to Canada with her family at a young age and later became a naturalized Canadian citizen.

She began her acting career in the 1970s and rose to prominence with her role in Porky’s (1982). But what really made her famous and garnered her praise from critics was her role as the vivacious Samantha Jones in the hit TV show S*x and the City (1998-2004). Cattrall received multiple accolades and prizes for her compelling portrayal of the self-assured and independent character.

Even though it has almost been 2 decades since S*x and the City stopped airing, many people still watch the show because of its entertaining content. On the other hand, we’ve recently discovered that many people have been curious to know if Kim Cattrall really (actually) had breast cancer like her character, Samantha Jones. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Previously, we touched on Zane Phillips’ sexuality.

Kim Cattrall Never Had Breast Cancer in Real Life!

It is probably one of the saddest scenes in S*x and the City when Samantha Jones finds out that she has breast cancer. However, the Samantha actress, Kim Cattrall (@kimcattrall), never had breast cancer in real life. Even if barely, some characters are written based on real life. However, it wasn’t the case for Kim’s character.

However, Kim did reveal that she couldn’t get away from breast cancer at the time show was airing as someone close to her was diagnosed with it. She said,

Someone very close to me is just about to start that process, so it has been doubly painful and also very challenging because the message is, ‘You do fight.

Even though Kim Cattrall has been fortunate to not have been diagnosed with diseases like that, we could see how her character, Samantha, was in pain in S*x and the City. In case you haven’t watched the show yet, here’s a quick glance at her storyline after she found out about having breast cancer.

Samantha’s diagnosis of breast cancer is one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the show. While it’s encouraging to see how the girls lift their spirits with their help, Samantha must travel the difficult path alone. She goes through a lot of soul-searching, which helps her see what’s really essential in life. Fortunately, Samantha is able to use her illness to build a strong platform, and she develops into a well-known speaker who brings comedy and awareness to the subject of breast cancer. However, the entire process defines her for a large portion of the second half of the series.

Sam takes off the wig she’s been using since her chemotherapy treatment caused her to lose her hair and throws it into a group of breast cancer sufferers in one of the most moving sequences in the whole series. She inspires the other women with her tenacity as they display their own bald heads in a gesture of support.

Samantha’s hair, like her sense of style, had always been one of her distinguishing characteristics. Losing it felt like losing a part of herself, but she fearlessly decided to say that even if her hair was gone, her tenacity would never go away.

Speaking about the age difference in the relationship, she told the Evening Standard that she has no problem with their ages. She said,

At a certain age, people merge, don’t they? I don’t think in those terms any more. Maybe I’ve lived longer and done more things, but I don’t see a difference on stage.
