Sarah Jessica Parker stayed firm in her decision not to film any nude scenes throughout the show’s run. She explained in a 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “I’ve always had one, and it’s apropos of absolutely nothing. Some people have a perks list and they are legendary. They have to have white candles in their room. I don’t have a crazy list like that. I’ve just always had [a no-nudity clause].” 

 

 

The Show Was Based On The Author’s Life

Sex and the City is in fact based off of author Candace Bushnell’s life. Yet, like many artists, Bushnell took creative license and exaggerated much of it. In an interview with The Guardian Bushnell said, “I think, in real life, Carrie and Big wouldn’t have ended up together…They had become an iconic couple and women really related to it; they would say ‘I found my Mr. Big’ or ‘I just broke up with my Mr. Big.'” 

 

Creator Darren Star Got a Sweet Deal

Darren Star, the creator of the show got off seriously cheap for the rights to Bushnell’s columns. She had a sex column in The New York Observer in the ’90s and sold it to Star for only $60,000. Star had already found success with “Melrose Place” and “Beverly Hills: 90210.” Star said that Sex and the City appealed to him because he would be able to be creatively freer on cable than with a broadcast network with their constraints with nudity or brands.

Believe it or not, there is actually a Mr. Big in real life and his name is Ron Galotti. He’s a big-time magazine publisher and is, in fact, the one that inspired Bushnell’s writing. True to his fictional character, Galotti had a reputation as a ladies man. He was married twice and in between marriages he dated Candace Bushnell in 1995. In her dating column for the New York Observer, Bushnell used the material from their relationship in her writing. 

 

Carrie Was Supposed To Be A Brunette
