Former Sex and the City star Jason Lewis has defended Sarah Jessica Parker following her very public bust-up with Kim Cattrall.

Cattrall unexpectedly blasted Parker on Instagram earlier this month after the actress reached out to send her condolences following the death of Kim's brother Chris.

In a scathing post, Cattrall accused Parker of "exploiting" the tragedy in order to restore her "'nice girl' persona." 

Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen jumped to Parker's defence last week, claiming that only "one person" was fighting, and it seems that the actress has gained another ally. 

According to E! Online, Jason Lewis, who played Cattrall's on-screen love interest  Jerry 'Smith' Jerrod during the final season of the show, weighed in on the drama during an interview with KTLA 5 on Wednesday (February 21). 

When asked about the feud, the 46-year-old actor replied: "If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all."

Lewis continued: "Listen, I have to say that Sarah was always just so lovely and such a consummate professional and I think that people should remember their graciousness and the things that have been given to them." 

He added: "And I'm gonna stop there because I've got nothing good to say." 

When asked if his comment meant he was on "team Sarah," the actor explained: "I might just have to say yeah... What a gracious lady. She was always so good to me."

Asked whether other members of the cast may have been less good to him, Lewis remarked pointedly: "Sarah was good to me". 

Meanwhile, Parker recently spoke out about her relationship with Kim Cattrall in an interview with People magazine, claiming there is "no fight" between the two actresses. To which we say: Sure, Jan...
