Chris North has been suggested to shed a few pounds for Sex and the City. He has not been the only star on the hit show asked this, his onscreen love rival John Corbett (Aiden)was also asked to loose some weight. The Good Wife star had expressed that he had been asked but the chow’s creator Michael Patrick King before he reprises his character as Mr. Big. Producer Amy B Harris confesses North wasn’t alone.
Harris admits Tv executives wanted Corbett’s character to make a return to the Tv version after his initial split from Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw looking sexier than ever, so he had to embark on a strict diet plan.
She tells Eonline.com,
“We told Corbett to lose weight between seasons three and four. When we talked about whether or not we wanted to see John come back, we basically said we want him to come back so hot that she cannot believe it. Like, he looks so much better after she left him. And we made him lose weight. And then we made Chris lose weight for the movie.”
And Harris still finds it funny how the male stars were the only ones placed under pressure to watch their figures:
“It’s hilarious. The women were, like, perfection, and no one ever mentioned anything about their weight ever. It was just the two guys! I think the women were just predisposed to be lucky and didn’t have to worry.”
