Kristin Davis Says Sorry For the Shoes
Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis feels bad about encouraging women to wear high heels
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Sex and the City star Kristin Davis admitted she feels bad about the high-heels-24/7 image she and her co-stars seemed to be promoting in the show.
“I do feel guilt about the heels,” she said. "It did seem we were trying to say to women, ‘You should be wearing heels like these’. But we definitely weren’t. Were they beautiful shoes? Yes. Were they appropriate for the characters? Yes, that’s what women like that wear. But it became a bigger picture thing, where it seemed women should be wearing them every day.”
These days, Kristin rarely ventures out of the house in heels. “I wear heels so rarely now. It hurts when I do – you have to get in training for them, and it takes a lot of practice.”
This comes after similar comments from Sarah Jessica Parker, who revealed that she’d suffered permanent damage to her feet from all that heel-wearing. “I literally ran in heels,” Sarah Jessica said. “I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some made better than others, and never complained.”
The result? “I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there – you’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there’. The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost.”
