Then And Now: Do You Recognize Carrie Bradshaw's Men From "Sex And The City"?

December 28, 2018

During the 6 seasons of the show (from 1998 to 2004), the whole world was watching the active love life of Carrie Bradshaw, New York resident and a columnist of one of the city's newspapers in the TV series Sex and the City. The role was played by first-class actress Sarah Jessica Parker. 

The actors' significant changes over the last 20 years

According to the scriptwriter's idea, the main character changed men like clothes; she had around 28 handsome men who aspired to be her beloved. Let's recap the most eye-catching ones and see if they are still recognizable.

Carrie already met the man of her dreams in season one. Mr. Big, played by Chris Noth, could charm any girl.

On the other hand, the 64-year-old actor can give a head start to many young guys even today. Except, maybe, he doesn't have as many parts in big movies anymore.

The actor Bill Sage gave a wonderful performance as the main character's lover.

Carrie felt desired in his arms. Not for long, though.

Aidan Shaw

The actor John Corbett played this part for two seasons.

He was so good that the scriptwriters offered him a role in the movie sequel Sex and the City 2, based on the TV show, and it was released in 2010.

Carrie spent a few series of the last season with a handsome admirer, the humorist played by Ron Livingston.

Despite having common interests, he also didn't stick around the main heroine for a long time.


The actor David Duchovny, who was already famous at the time, made a cameo appearance in the show, playing the part of Carrie's ex-classmate.

Well, it is safe to say that Carrie had great taste and she (along with the show's director and scriptwriters, of course) chose handsome and charming men. The actors who played these roles are all over 50 now, but time seems to have no power over them!
