Kim Cattrall's Sex Injury

LOS ANGELES: Kim Cattrall was left in a lot of pain while filming scenes in Morocco for 'Sex and the City 2'.

Kim Cattrall was left bow-legged when filming 'Sex and the City 2'.

The 53-year-old actress, who plays feisty PR guru Samantha Jones in the movie, admits a trip to Morocco to shoot scenes for the new film was not as fun as it sounded.

She told the BBC: "Sarah Jessica Parker and I were on the camel literally for 13 hours and when I got off I was bow-legged in a way that you can't even imagine. Oh God it hurt."

Kim also revealed she was a little nervous about playing the sexually explicit Samantha when she first signed up for the TV show.

She said: "The thing about signing up to a television series in America is that you read a script that is basically 30 pages and you sign a piece of paper that says, 'For the next five, possibly six years of your life this is going to be your job'. Based on 30 pages of script. It's very difficult to make that leap.

"And I was just turning 40 at the time and I was a little bit nervous about this character, whether I could pull it off, and thank God I did.It's just changed my life irrevocably."

'Sex and the City' 2 is due for release in May.
