Well self awareness is half the battle, right? And if you are watching And Just Like That we’re all painfully aware of just how crazy Charlotte is acting.
We’re not talking her typical level of crazy. We’re talking like she needs to be brought to reality. In the spinoff Charlotte seems to be out of sorts. Not that she was much better in Sex and The City, but that’s just me.
“In terms of her freaking out, I felt really nervous about the [scene with the] neighbor, and that [Charlotte] would seem like a fully insane human being,” Kristin said in regards to how Charlotte was acting in regards to trying to impress her new friend, LTW, when speaking to Entertainment Weekly.
Charlotte and Harry realizing that they don’t have a diverse friendship circle is cringy in the show. Like really cringy. It’s very Charlotte.
“I’ve already had to deal with a lot of these issues because I have Black children. A lot of this is very, very familiar to me in terms of my friends and my family and different people around me, where maybe that was something that they had to deal with,” Kristin continued to tell the outlet. “I loved to hear [writer] Keli [Goff]‘s point of view, and I loved to hear Nicole’s point of view because we’re trying to make something that is relatable to all. I always trust [producer] Michael Patrick [King] in terms of knowing how Charlotte would or would not react, and he always modulates me if I’m in any way off.”
We all know that Sex and the City didn’t tackle many important issues head on. They avoided them. So yes, I am happy that they are doing it in this iteration.
And Kristin is also happy that they are addressing it in this iteration of the show.
“It’s something that’s very important to me. I felt that if we have this opportunity that we should take it, and we do. It’s been a joy, and our new writers and our new actors have just been mind-bogglingly brilliant and wonderful, and they have so many ideas,” Kristin continued. “We talked about which artists [should be featured] for months and months. Because you have to go through the artist and the agent [to get the rights], and it’s a process. We really wanted to be current and on point, but also we had to make sure that [the pieces] were available to us. So it was a whole thing. We stressed about it because we wanted to be good, and we wanted to be real. Charlotte really means well, as we know, but she’s not perfect by any means.”
Charlotte is definitely not perfect. But what are your thoughts on her? Good? Bad? Can’t stand her? Love her?
