Kim Cattrall Doesn't Think She's 'Posh'

The Sex and the City ladies are just about as stylish as they come, especially Kim Cattrall, who plays glamorous businesswoman Samantha Jones in the franchise. But Cattrall isn't quite convinced: She says her British roots mean she's not as well to-do as people might expect.

The 53-year-old actress was born in Liverpool, which is located in North West England, and she lived there with her family for three months before they moved to Canada.

Discussing her well-spoken accent on Britain's Radio 2, she said: "I'm not really posh, I'm from Liverpool, love! Well I don't really think it's posh so much -- my mum definitely not, she's from Toxteth but my father maybe."

Kim is currently starring in the play Private Lives in London's West End theater district, where her character Amanda speaks with Received Pronunciation (RP) -- a well-spoken, British accent.

Although this is Kim's first time talking like this in the theater, she was forced to master the accent for her recent movie The Ghost Writer, in which she stars alongside Pierce Brosnan, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Williams.

She added: "This is the first time I've done RP on stage. It did come by honestly. Particularly this time, with The Ghost Writer, I did RP as well, and that was the first time. It was a little nerve-wracking because there I was with Pierce and Ewan and Olivia, who are the real thing."

She added, "The first couple of days it was a little nerve-wracking but I had a good dialect coach. They were very, very encouraging."
