If you've been watching And Just Like That, you know Miranda's character is figuring out a lot right now. She has gone from a hardworking lawyer, dedicated wife to her loving husband Steve, and strong mother to her baby son Brady to a character many of us don't even recognize. While I totally love her take on parenting and sex, I'm having a hard time supporting her decisions in her marriage, most notably her infidetiliy.

Cynthia Nixon knows that many fans are struggling, and has recently addressed concerns in a new interview.


I know a lot of fans aren't thrilled with "And Just Like That" but I'm totally loving it.

I think people are forgetting what this campy, girl power show was about, to begin with. We're supposed to have fun with it! It's supposed to be silly and kind of crazy. It's supposed to be a little bit cringe, but a lot a bit heartfelt.

Speaking of heartfelt, my wee heart can barely take anymore of this Steve/Miranda plotline.

Cynthia Nixon knows Sex and the City fans are struggling to accept Miranda's decision to cheat on Steve with Che, and is addressing those concerns in a new interview on The Drew Barrymore Show.

"I think some people are not loving seeing these characters off-kilter, but I love that," she admitted.

"Whatever age you are, you haven’t figured everything out. If you think you’ve figured everything out, you're kidding yourself."

Cynthia went on to explain that Miranda at 56-years-old is still figuring out her true identity and desires.

"You're not young anymore but you’re not old either and you still have time to make sure your life is the way you want it to be and if you’re deeply unhappy in your career choices or in your marriage you should look at it and demand more," she explained.

I think this is a really important reminder to fans of this franchise, and to women everywhere!

You're never too old to start living the life you want, and everyone deserves to be happy — just maybe don't cheat on your spouse until you've got that all sorted out?
