Actress Kim Cattrall, best known for playing the iconic Samantha Jones on “Sex and the City” as well as for her highly accomplished theatre career, recently revealed that her lifelong regime of exercise and healthy eating is the only way she has been able to play the blonde bombshell into her mid-50s.
“When I hit my forties I thought, ‘I can't play a sexy siren any more.’ Almost 20 years later, it's still going on,” she recently told Woman and Home magazine. “I think that's because I take care of myself, which includes dieting, exercising and minimizing stress.”
