Kim Cattrall Kim Cattrall has taken aim at Ricky Gervais for making a "cheap" joke about the Sex And The City cast at the recent Golden Globes, branding the gag upsetting and ageist.

The British funnyman caused controversy during his hosting duties at the awards show by poking fun at the star-studded audience in a number of barbed jibes. His performance provoked outrage from a number of celebrities, as well as event organizers, who labeled the jokes "totally unacceptable".

Gervais ridiculed the stars of Sex and the City 2 during the show by making fun of a publicity poster for the movie, telling the audience, "I was sure the Golden Globe for special effects would go to the team that airbrushed that poster. Girls, we know how old you are. I saw one of you in an episode of (1960s TV show) Bonanza."

However, Cattrall failed to find the funny side, admitting the remarks about the actresses' ages upset her.

She tells Extra, "Ageism is out there and I fight it every day in my own way... So, I think that's kind of a cheap joke... Maybe some people feel that needs to be out there. I don't particularly think so."
