LONDON (Reuters) - Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are back -- The "Sex and the City" TV stars took to the big screen on Monday with the world premiere in London of their tales of love and high fashion in New York.

The film takes up four years on from where the hit series left the sassy singletons, who were so blatantly honest in their desire to have "sex like men" but also lusted as much for a new pair of Manolo Blahnik heels as they did for the perfect beau.

The stars were greeted by hordes of screaming fans in London's Leicester Square where Sarah Jessica Parker said "This is a movie for all genders, gays, straights and everybody in-between."

"Men are not vilified. It's a movie for everyone," she told Sky News.

Parker, who plays Carrie and is also a producer of the film, said she had been working on the project for 2-1/2 years. But getting everyone together again was not easy.

There were reports that when talks about a film began, Kim Cattrall, who plays Samantha, had demanded more money and creative control.

"It was a really hard time," said Cattrall, who at the time was in the midst of a divorce. Her father had also just been diagnosed with dementia.

"I needed to spend time with my real family and I'm really glad that I did because in the four years, you know, coming back, I think the film is where it should be," Cattrall told Reuters in New York before the film's London launch.   Continued...
