Kim Cattrall Kim Cattrall is used to the glamour and high fashion of shooting 'Sex and the City,' so she had quite an awakening when she played the anti-Samantha Jones. In 'Meet Monica Velour,' Cattrall plays a washed-up porn star, and director Keith Bearden wanted her to gain a lot of weight for the part.

"He wanted me to gain like 35 pounds. Really, just for health reasons, I couldn't do that. I also didn't have enough time to do it safely with a doctor's care. But what I did was I put on 15 pounds, and that was comfortable. I could do that. I just didn't exercise at all," Cattrall told NY Magazine.
