The Sex And The City TV revival, And Just Like That, is fast approaching and we officially can't wait. Still, while the show hasn't even aired yet, it's already received some backlash from critics - and Sarah Jessica Parker has responded in an iconic way.

The criticism centres around the fact that leads character Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will now be in their 50s, with the cast being quick to call out critics.

Discussing the negative responses in a recent interview with Vogue, SJP made her thoughts *very* clear, telling the publication, "There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man."

Going on to quote critics, she continued, "'Grey hair grey hair grey hair. Does she have grey hair?' I’m sitting with [US TV host] Andy Cohen and he has a full head of grey hair, and he’s exquisite. Why is it okay for him? I don’t know what to tell you people!"

Parker went on, calling out trolls on social media, adding, "Especially on social media. Everyone has something to say. 'She has too many wrinkles, she doesn’t have enough wrinkles.'

"It almost feels as if people don’t want us to be perfectly okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy us being pained by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if that makes you feel better. I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop ageing? Disappear?"

A 10/10 comeback if you ask us.

And Just Like That is dropping in December 2021, 15 years after the original Sex and the City stopped airing in 2004. We'll get to see Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda returning to screens, while Kim Cattrall (who played Samantha) has unfortunately made it clear that she's moved on from the series.

Still, we can't wait to see what the characters are up to now!
