Kim Cattrall upset by 'raw' film scene

June 17th, 2011

Kim Cattrall got "upset" by "catcalls" to her character in 'Meet Monica Velour'.

The 'Sex and the City' actress plays an ageing porn star-turned-pole dancer in the forthcoming movie, and one scene where she was heckled by the men in a bar affected her because of the "rawness" of it.

She said: "It was exhilarating really, at the beginning, but then it got tricky. The insults from the audience came about five or six times, since had to get different angles.

"After I got offstage and went back to the dressing room... those catcalls, like, 'Do you have Depends , the incontinence-relief underwear, on under there?' started affecting me. I was upset.

"If you go online, you don't read that sort of age rage. Even still, it's one thing to read it and quite another thing to hear it. That was really raw for me."

However the 54-year-old star was keen to make the film as real as possible, and even demanded some of the set was pared down to be more in-keeping with the requirements of a woman suffering with money problems.

She told The Scotsman newspaper: "They gave me bottled beer and I was like, 'No, too expensive. Give me canned no-name beer. That's what Monica drinks.

"Then I got on set and the guy gives me a lighter. I said, 'This lighter looks like it cost 40 bucks. I need a Bic. A pink Bic lighter that you get at the grocery store."
