Kim Cattrall turns 60: Her advice on ageing gracefully

SEX and the City will go down in history as the show that changed the norms of day time TV, a scandalous show that lives on in the hearts and minds of women across the globe.

Another topic that's synonymous with Sex and the City is ageing, or in fact, the lack-there-of, as the four actresses who played the iconic best friends seem to evade most signs of ageing.

The star culprit of this seemingly age-less look is Kim Cattrall who played raunchy Samantha on the hit TV show and the actress turns 60 this Sunday.

It's been 18 years since the premiere of the HBO series and ET interviewed Cattrall on why the show was able to strike a chord with audiences.

"We're talking about women's intimate lives and intimate issues about relationships that I think has been totally untapped until now," said the Golden Globe winner back in 2000.

The success of the show became so great that it spawned two movies, the first of which ended filming 10 years ago around the time of Cattrall's birthday.

"Turning 50!" she announced at the time.

Cattrall is the most senior of the Sex and the City women, as Kristin Davis and Sarah Jessica Parker are 51 and Cynthia Nixon is 50, and Cattrall was able to share some wisdom about aging gracefully when ET spoke with her in 2008.

"I'm not in my 20s trying to fit in anymore," she said. "I eat as much as I can."

Since Sex and the City took its final bow in 2004, Cattrall has stayed busy. Currently she is starring on the Canadian show Sensitive Skin and is about to film the British miniseries, The Witness for the Prosecution, based on the Agatha Christie novel.
