'Sex and the City' star Kristin Davis says she cried after being 'ridiculed relentlessly' for her filler

Kristin Davis says she knows some people ridicule her appearance since she got fillers, and the comments hurt.

In an interview with The Telegraph published Friday, actress Davis described the emotional ordeal of fielding this criticism, while trying to navigate the inconsistent world of cosmetic surgery.

I have done fillers and it's been good and I've done fillers and it's been bad. I've had to get them dissolved and I've been ridiculed relentlessly.

And I have shed tears about it. It's very stressful, Davis said. In fact, Davis told The Telegraph, she did not realize there was something amiss with her lips until friends confronted her about it. 

"No one told me it didn't look good for the longest time. But luckily I do have good friends who did say eventually.

The thing is you don't smile at yourself in the mirror. Who smiles at themselves in the mirror? Crazy people," Davis said.

Davis said she, like other celebrities, was just "trusting doctors" with these procedures, then taking the hit from the public "when it goes wrong."

Davis, who plays Charlotte York Goldenblatt in the "SATC" universe, also talked about the double standard she is subjected to regarding her looks.

"It's hard to be confronted with your younger self at all times. And it's a challenge to remember that you don't have to look like that.

The internet wants you to – but they also don't want you to. They're very conflicted…" she said.

The appearance of the "SATC" actresses became a topic of conversation around the time the show's spin-off, "And Just Like That," premiered on HBO in 2021.

Sarah Jessica Parker, who was scrutinized for having gray hair in the spin-off, told Vogue in December 2021 that the discussions around her and her costars' appearances were "misogynistic chatter."

Davis also chimed in back in 2021 when the criticisms first started, telling the Times UK, "Everyone wants to comment,

pro or nay or whatever, on our hair and our faces and our this and our that. The level of intensity of it was a shock."

The second season of "And Just Like That" premieres on HBO June 22.
