(Not to mention, Emmy-winning comedic moments.) And even though she's now running for governor of New York, Nixon is more than happy to talk about her run on the iconic HBO show-even if that means occasionally calling out parts of the series and the movies she finds problematic. There's indeed one, and it's a pivotal moment in Sex and the City 2: when Big builds Carrie that massive walk-in closet. President Trump's astonishing election win also partly inspired her run.

The Emmy award actress announced her run for the NY governor's seat back in January, planning to go up against current Governor Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic Primary.

"If we don't like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up and we have to get involved like never before", Nixon said.

When the subject on the show turned to the legalization of marijuana, Nixon said she was "absolutely" for it. "I love NY and I believe so much in NY", said the NYC native, going on to add that funding for the city's public schools would be a top priority for her as governor.

"It is tough. People talk a lot to me about being a celebrity entering this race. I'm not saying we don't love the clothes".

Actress Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic nomination, has come out in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana.

Nixon's made recent headlines for her support to legalize marijuana, noting there is "such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state".

"There's such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state", she said during the 13-minute chat. "There's such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state".

"Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon said Wednesday black women are the cornerstone and backbone of the Democratic Party, and "we need to let them lead".

Nixon also addressed the tragic shooting and death of an unarmed African-American man, Stephon Clark.

Nixon said black women "will stop showing up for the Democratic Party if the Democratic Party doesn't start showing up for them".

Williams then asked a pointed question that perhaps underscored Nixon's decision to appear on the former shock jock's show in the first place: "How can black women help you become governor?"
