Desperate Housewives star Dana Delany turned down the lead role in Sex And The City - because she was fed up with "talking about sex."
The actress has revealed she was offered the part of Carrie Bradshaw in the hit TV series, a role later made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker.
But Delany insists the timing was wrong, because she had just starred in kinky 1994 comedy movie Exit to Eden.
She says, "The producer of Sex and the City, Darren Star, was an old friend of mine and he talked to me about it. But I had just played Mistress Lisa in Eden and people reacted badly to it. I had been America's sweetheart and they (the public) just didn't want to see me in that role. So I said, 'Darren, I just can't talk about sex one more time'. So Sarah Jessica Parker made it her own."
And Delany admits she is glad she turned the role down, because she doubts the show would have been so successful without Parker.
She adds, "I wouldn't have been the fashion icon that she was. It would have been a completely different show and who knows if it would have been a hit?"
