Cynthia Nixon, who is best known for her role as the "tough as nails" lawyer Miranda Hobbs on the hit HBO show Sex and the City, has grabbed the headlines as she announced her intention to run for governor of NY. Apparently, there was a specific scene from the film Sex and the City that Nixon was not in favor of.

At the time, Nixon told the New York Times she found that gleeful reaction "devastating" and "disheartening".

Adding, "If we don't like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up". "I'm absolutely for the legalization of marijuana".

"She's a hard worker like me", Nixon said of her character.
