Cattrall's teetotal gaffe
16:30 28 April 2005
Kim Cattrall has confessed she's teetotal - just weeks after being signed up as the face of a new alcoholic drink.
The 'Sex and the City' star, who played partying PR boss Samantha Jones in the hit TV series, says she doesn't drink because it makes her feel ill.
She told America's In Touch magazine: "I'm not a big drinker and when I do, I get a headache."
But her comments come less than a month after the sexy star agreed a lucrative deal to promote a new range of cocktails.
The blonde babe said she lent her name to the Bacardi's new Island Breeze drinks because she was looking for a drink she could enjoy without piling on the pounds.
She said at the time: "I have always enjoyed cocktails socially, but I have been conscious of both the calories and drinking in moderation."
The 48-year-old star's publicist insisted her client's comments had been taken out of context, but it's not the first time the blonde beauty has admitted not being an alcohol fan.
Four years ago, while shooting the hit TV show that made her name, the sexy star said she didn't use any chemical substances and claimed designer fashion was her only vice.
She said at the time: "I don't drink or take drugs so clothes are my only mood enhancer."
British-born Kim, famed for her raunchy TV sex scenes and on-screen bedroom gymnastics with a string of younger lovers, is currently treading the boards on London's West End stage.
