Kim Cattrall loves single life

Kim Cattrall loves being single because she has the "freedom" of being able to "snore and fart" in bed.

The 'Sex and the City' actress - who has been married three times - has been single for several years and appreciates the fact she can do whatever she wants in her own home without having to consider anyone else.

She said: "I've been single for seven years and for the longest time I would only sleep on one side of the bed until I thought, 'Wait a minute, I don't have to do that. I can sleep right there in the middle of my kingsized bed'.

"I can snore, I can fart, I can do all of these things without thinking, 'Oh god'. It's amazing freedom you have with it and then the thought of someone invading your space...

"I bought an apartment when my second marriage ended and I remember thinking, 'My whole life I've wanted a pink bedroom and goddammit I'm gonna have it' and I did. One of my dear girlfriends came up and said 'I guess you're gonna remain single for a long time with a pink bedroom.'"

Though the 59-year-old star admits to moments of loneliness, she has no desire to get into another relationship as she has the support of such a great group of friends.

She told BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour: "I guess there's those moments where you think, 'If I'm having a bad day, who do I call?' There are lonely moments, but I have to tell you honestly that for myself so many women in relationships are very loving but also lonely too.

"I really believe - and my generation were not told this - you can't have everything. I find the women who are single that I know who are my age are much more feeling, I'd rather be alone and have friends, and if something happens for a period of time, it doesn't have to be forever...

"People are born into this family unit which you don't choose and then you make your family. Men, for a lot of women in my generation, they come and go, but that family you've created, they stay and those are the people I want around my bedside when I croak, they are the people I can rely on because they've always been . There's a bond there which, right now, is so much more fulfilling."
