The And Just Like That star said, “I never had any judgments about anybody else doing it.”

Sarah Jessica Parker was reluctant to join the cast of Sex and the City and its reboot series And Just Like That because she didn’t want to film any nude scenes, the Emmy-award-winning actress said yesterday during a guest appearance on SiriusXM’s Howard Stern Show.

The 58-year-old actor clarified that her choice to remain clothed wasn’t “a morality thing” and admitted to being too “shy,” saying: “I think I just never felt comfortable exposing myself that way.”

Parker continued, “I never had any judgments about anybody else doing it,” in reference to her co-stars Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, and Kristin Davis, who all had naked scenes on Sex and the City.

The star said that when she was considering accepting the role on the hit HBO show she was worried about the potential for stripped-down scenes she wasn’t comfortable with.

“The only thing … I was concerned about was that I just didn’t feel comfortable doing nudity,” she recalled. “I suspected that if it wasn’t in the pilot, it would be a part of a series.”

But luckily, when the Hocus Pucus star expressed her hesitation to Sex and the Citycreator Darren Star, he told her not to do it.

“He said … ‘We’ll have other actors. If they feel comfortable doing it, they’ll do it, but you do not have to,'” Parker said on the radio show.

Cattrall, Nixon and Davis all filmed a variety of nude scenes in Sex and the City and Nixon has filmed topless scenes with her character’s new nonbinary love interest Che in the reboot series’ second season, which is currently airing.

In a recent interview Nixon told Entertainment Tonight that she was "always fairly game” for showing some skin. "It's just one of the main subjects of the show is sex — people having sex and people having great sex and people having terrible sex and people having hilarious sex."
