‘Sex and the City’ creator Darren Star has been speaking about how the series ended, with Carrie Bradshaw ultimately ending up with her longtime on-again-off-again love Mr Big. Star said that he felt ‘betrayed’ by the decision to have the couple end up together, feeling that by the finale it had just turned into another romantic comedy.

"For me, in a way – and I didn't [write] those last episodes – if you're empowering other people to write and produce your show, you can't ... say certain things,” Star said during an interview with Kindle Singles.

"At a certain point, you've got to let them follow their vision. … But I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage. Not that they can’t.”

“But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached. At the end, it became a conventional romantic comedy," he added. "But unless you're there to write every episode, you're not going to get the ending you want.”

The interview also saw Star make two interesting casting revelations. First that ‘Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce’ star Lisa Edelstein was his back-up actress if Sarah Jessica Parker was unable to play Carrie Bradshaw and second, that Lou Thornton from ‘The Jenny McCarthy Show’ was originally cast as Samantha Jones.
