Sarah Jessica Parker has admitted Sex and the City didn’t have a “substantial conversation” about the LGTB community.

The actress starred as Carrie Bradshaw in the hit HBO series but said if it was made today it would be a “different show” and the show is known for one of the most biphobic scenes in TV history.

But during an interview at the Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything Festival, Parker said the show and her character were products of the generation and would have a lot to say about the #MeToo movement.

She said: “There were no women of colour… and there was no substantial conversation about the LGBTQ community.

“I think Carrie Bradshaw is very much a product of her generation and I think her conversations about sexual politics and intimacy spoke to the years.

“As always, those years prior to being a young adult inform your worldview. I think that she would have a lot to say about this, and I would be curious to read [her] column if she could sit back and look at it.

“You know, this city has changed – that was 20 years ago this June – this city has changed an enormous amount politically and economically and socially and I think it would be a different show, honestly.”
