Cynthia Nixon favors legalizing marijuana

Cynthia Nixon Reveals Which Scene in 'Sex and the City 2' Movie Left Her 'Devastated'

Tough opponent: Nixon is challenging two-time incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo (pictured at an event on Monday) for the Democratic Party nomination in the September 13 primary.

"I was a little devastated".

While Nixon isn't the first celebrity to run for office, the actress, unfortunately, already has the odds stacked against her. "There is such an appetite for real progressive change in New York City".

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon says New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration "ignored" an upstate village's problems with its contaminated water supply.

And while the sequel "Sex And The City 2" is the instalment most fans would prefer pretend never happened, Cynthia has confessed that it's the ending of the first film, in which Carrie discovers the walk-in closet that Mr Big had built for her and ultimately takes him back, that she felt most let down by.

The Emmy award actress announced her run for the NY governor's seat back in January, planning to go up against current Governor Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic Primary.

Williams also brought up the recent police-involved shooting of Stephon Clark in Sacramento, California, asking Nixon, "Is this a black man thing?" Next: "Where do you stand on gun control?" asked Williams, who earlier in the show spent an entire segment dishing on Tiger Woods, the rapper Tyga and Kardashian clan momager Kris Jenner. "If we are going to say black lives matter, we have to mean it". "I'm not saying we don't love the clothes", she adds with a laugh.

But Nixon added that black women will stop showing up for the Democratic Party "if the Democratic Party doesn't start showing up for them".

Finally, Nixon touched upon the hot topic of the legalization of marijuana, and made her thoughts inescapably clear: "I am absolutely for the legalization of marijuana".

She's also leaving Miranda's signature fiery red hair in the past. "If you want it done you actually have to get in there and do it yourself".

And Nixon didn't limit her critical eye to politics. "But if it's just about name recognition, I'm hoping that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Billy Joel don't get into the race".
