Actress Kim Cattrall says she seriously considered having children back in the late 1990s but decided instead to focus on the then-new HBO series Sex and the City. Appearing on Monday's episode of Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Cattrall admitted that she contemplated starting IVF treatments after marrying Mark Levinson in 1998, the same year SATC premiered, People reports. “I thought to myself, ‘Wow, I have 19-hour days on this series. … My Monday morning would start at 4:45am and go to 1 or 2 in the morning. How could I possibly continue to do that, especially in my early 40s?' I thought, 'I don't think it is going to happen.'" Cattrall also told Morgan she has "never been friends" with her SATC castmates.

Cattrall's confessions come a month after her co-star Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed that there would not be a third Sex and the City movie, and rumors started circulating that the movie was called off due to Cattrall's "outrageous demands." But Cattrall told Morgan those rumors aren't true, Page Six reports. "To be thought of as some kind of diva is ridiculous,” she said. Instead, Cattrall said she has been saying "no" to a third installment in the series for a year and that she believes Parker should be blamed for her negative press. "I really think she could have been nicer,” she said. (More Kim Cattrall stories.)
