Kim Cattrall net worth: $40 million
Celebrity Net Worth states that actor Kim Cattrall has an estimated net worth of $40 million. While she is best known for portraying Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, Cattrall has enjoyed a long and successful acting career that started long before her role on the popular TV series.
Cattrall earned nominations for five Emmy Awards and four Golden Globes for her SATC role. In 2002, she won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. At the show’s peak of success, Cattrall earned $350,000 per episode. She was paid $7 million for her role in the first SATC movie and $10 million for the second film. The discrepancy between her salary and co-star Sarah Jessica Parker’s pay was a source of tension on set.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall’s ongoing feud
Although Parker and Cattrall had a very convincing on-screen friendship in Sex and the City, the two actors did not get along in real life.
Pay discrepancy on the TV series and related films was a source of tension between the stars, with Parker significantly out-earning Cattrall.
For years, there were rumors about the “mean-girls culture” on the set of SATC. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis allegedly formed a clique, and Cattrall was isolated from her co-stars.
After her brother’s death in 2018, Cattrall called out Parker in an Instagram post for publicly expressing condolences. In the caption, Cattrall wrote, “My Mom asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.”
