"Sex and the City" Cast -- Then & Now

The actress who has turned down the opportunity to reprise the role of Samantha suggested a few Hollywood "goddesses."

Sarah Jessica Parker has been jokingly offering various hosts the role of Samantha Jones in "Sex and the City 3" -- a sequel that is purely hypothetical at this point -- but now Kim Cattrall has offered her own two cents on who could take over the role she made famous.

"I am partial to Ellen DeGeneres, but Oprah was always my 1st <3. But then there are the goddesses Tiffany Haddish or Sofia Vergara," Cattrall tweeted Thursday. "So many fabulous actresses to choose from that will make Samantha their own!"

Haddish, if you haven't heard of her, is of course the hilarious breakout star of "Girls Trip," while Vergara has made her mark as a comedic actress on ABC's long-running sitcom "Modern Family."

Cattrall's tweet is the latest commentary she has offered on "Sex and the City" in wake of SJP telling the press that the possibility of a third movie was dead. Reports subsequently emerged claiming Cattrall's "outrageous demands" and lack of interest were holding up the project.

"I'm disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story," SJP said in an interview. "It's not just disappointing that we don't get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie."

Cattrall later openly admitted on Twitter that she didn't have any desire to make another "Sex and the City" movie, but denied her "demands" had anything to do with production shutting down.

"Now at this very moment it's quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I've been saying for almost a year of 'no' that I'm demanding or a diva," Cattrall said. "And this is really where I take to task the people from 'Sex and the City,' and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, in that I think she could have been nicer."

But SJP told DeGeneres earlier this week that she still has hope for one more installment in the franchise spawned by the hit HBO show of the same name.

"I think there's a period of grief, a mourning process, and then perhaps we'll be able to consider, say for instance, you playing Samantha," she told DeGeneres.

"Last week I said no because it's a brutal companion, but I feel like maybe, I don't know, I just have to make up an answer because I have absolutely no idea," SPJ said. "You know, who knows."
