Kristin Davis is angry about all the comments and casual ageism about her appearance in the Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, which premiered on HBO Max December 9.

In an interview with London’s Sunday Times, the actor, who plays Charlotte York on the iconic comedy series, commented on the nonstop chatter about her and her costars’ appearances 17 years after the series ended its initial run. 

“Everyone wants to comment, pro or nay or whatever, on our hair and our faces and our this and our that,” Davis said. “The level of intensity of it was a shock…. I feel angry and I don’t want to feel angry all the time, so I don’t look at it. I just know it’s there.”

Davis also talked to The Sunday Times about how comments on her appearance bothered her during the original run of Sex and the City in the late ’90s and early 2000s. “They would write articles every week about how I was ‘pear-shaped,’ which I didn’t feel was a compliment at the time,” Davis said. “It would stress me out a fair amount because I couldn’t avoid it. I kind of feel like that’s how it is now too. But I also feel—I’m going to be blunt—I feel like, ‘Fuck you. Fuck you people, like, come over here and do it better.’ You know what I mean? Like, what are you doing?”

Davis blamed social media for the surge in comments about her and her costars’ appearances in And Just Like That… “That’s the problem with social media, right, is that you don’t know what those people are doing,” she said. “You don’t know anything about them. They’re just hurling bombs at you. It makes me angry.”

Back in October, Davis’s costar Sarah Jessica Parker also called out ageist trolls on the internet in an interview with Vogue. “There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man,” said Parker. “‘Gray hair, gray hair, gray hair. Does she have gray hair?’ I’m sitting with Andy Cohen, and he has a full head of gray hair, and he’s exquisite. Why is it okay for him? I don’t know what to tell you people! Especially on social media. Everyone has something to say: ‘She has too many wrinkles, she doesn’t have enough wrinkles.’ It almost feels as if people don’t want us to be perfectly okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy us being pained by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if that makes you feel better. I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?”
