Women We Love: Kim Cattrall

Today continues our four part salute to the stars of Sex and the City as they are about to make the leap to the silver screen with their new movie, in theaters May 30.

Object of our affection: Kim Cattrall, actress.

- As the sexy Samantha Jones, she was a cougar before there was a name for it; for her vampish performance, she was nominated for the Emmy five times unsuccessfully, but she did take home a Golden Globe Award.

- Prior to her noted sexcapades, she guest-starred on everything from The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries to The Paper Chase to Charlie's Angels.

- She made her name on the big screen in such lowbrow comedies as Porky's and Police Academy before became a fanboy pin-up with Big Trouble in Little China, Mannequin and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (as a Vulcan, no less).

- Frankly, she's not known for her film choices, as her resume includes such notorious stinkers as The Bonfire of the Vanities, Baby Geniuses and Crossroads (as Britney Spears' mother, no less).

- Capitalizing on her Sex character, she wrote the sex manual Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm.
