20 Celebrities You Forgot Had a Cameo on ‘Sex and the City’

Sex and the City‘ is one of those great TV sitcoms that hasn’t aged, and is still as relatable today as it was in the 90s, with some surprising celebrity cameos! To help you spot all the famous faces in it you forgot about, here’s my list of the 20 most noteable (in order of appearance):

Justin Theroux

Season 1, Episode 7: ‘The Monogamists’

Justin’s Theroux is the first celebrity cameo on this list, where he plays a confident stranger, Jared, who Carrie uses to make Big jealous.

Bradley Cooper

Season 2, Episode 4: ‘They Shoot Single People, Don’t They?’

Bradley Cooper plays Jake, a sexy smoker that Carrie gets with to boost her self-esteem after *that* disasterous ‘single & fabulous?’ magazine photoshoot, only for him to laugh in her face and her to walk away. Too right Carrie for walking away, you’re worth more than that.

Donald Trump

Season 2, Episode 8: ‘The Man, The Myth, The Viagra’

Here, Donald Trump makes an appearance after Samatha spots him in a bar, however, she has her eye on the powerful older man he’s meeting with though.

Jon Bon Jovi

Season 2, Episode 13: ‘Games People Play’

Jon Bon Jovi plays Seth, the ‘wrong guy’ that Carrie meets at her therapist’s office. I can’t blame her for flirting with him though. (I wouldn’t pass up a game of Twister with him either.)

Justin Theroux (Again)

Season 2, Episode 15: ‘Shortcomings’

No, you aren’t seeing things – that really is Justin Theroux again. This time, he’s in a cameo role as Vaughn, a well-accomplished short story writer, who unfortunately for Carrie, doesn’t last long in bed either. How can the same actor play two different characters? Well, he’s shaved his head this time around.

Elizabeth Banks

Season 3, Episode 2: ‘Politically Erect’

Catherine, played by Elizbeth Banks, is the fiancee of a politician that Charlotte flirts with at a party before realising he’s spoken for.

Eddie Cahill

Season 3, Episode 4: ‘Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl’

You may know him better as Tag in ‘Friends‘, but Eddie Cahill did have a cameo in Sex and the City too. He played bisexual Sean, who Carrie dates – and is a little baffled by.

Alanis Morisette

Season 3, Episode 4: ‘Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl’

Eddie Cahill’s character, Sean, takes Carrie to a party for his ex-boyfriend Mark, where she meets Dawn. But of course, Dawn is the incredibly talented Alanis Morisette. They play spin the bottle and the two have an awkward kiss.

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Season 3, Episode 13: ‘Escape From New York’

The fast talking LA Junior Executive, Debbie, is played by non other than the gorgeous Sarah Michelle Gellar. Carrie meets her to discuss turning her newspaper column into a movie.

Matthew McConaughey

Season 3, Episode 13: ‘Escape From New York’

After meeting with Junior Executive, Debbie, Carrie meets with producer and actor Matthew McConaughey to discuss turning her newspaper column into a movie.

Vince Vaughn

Season 3, Episode 13: ‘Escape From New York’

While in LA, Carrie and Samantha go to a movie after party, where they meet Matt Damon’s assistant, Keith, played by Vince Vaughn.

Carrie Fisher

Season 3, Episode 13: ‘Escape From New York’

As herself, Carrie Fisher outs Keith (Vince Vaughn), not as Matt Damon’s assistant but as her PA and house-sitter, when she catches him and Carrie (Bradshaw) in her bed.

Hugh Hefner

Season 3, Episode 14: ‘Sex and Another City’

Hugh Hefner is (unsurprisingly) Samantha’s idol, and the group meeting him, he invites them to a party at the infamous Playboy Mansion.

Kat Dennings

Season 3, Episode 15: ‘Hot Child in the City’

Kat Dennings is Jenny Briar, a 13-going-on-30 year old, who hires Samantha to throw a huge and very expensive party for. Probably growing up too fast, she’s a girl who knows what she wants, and even sends the girls over a bottle of champagne.

Alan Cumming

Season 3, Episode 15: ‘The Real Me’

Alan Cumming plays a fashion designer, who is dressing Carrie in a fashion show featuring real people and models. Initially he puts her in a gorgeous floor length dress, but later swaps it for a pair of sparkly knickers, much to Carrie’s horror.

Heidi Klum

Season 3, Episode 15: ‘The Real Me’

Heidi Klum is one of the ‘real models’ in the charity fashion show, who walks over Carrie when she falls over, only to give her a high five when she gets herself up, and carries on.

Lucy Liu

Season 4, Episode 11: ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’

Lucy Liu played herself, a potential celebrity client of Samantha’s. Samantha ruins the relationship though, buy using Lucy’s name to bag herself a Birkin… erm, bag.

Heather Graham

Season 5, Episode 8: ‘Critical Condition’

Heather Graham plays herself, a friend of Nina Katz, who dates Aidan right after Carrie does. Heather shares a great (yet awkward) moment with Stamford, while eating a pretzel.

Jennifer Coolidge

Season 6, Episode 3: ‘The Perfect Present’

Jennifer Coolidge plays Victoria, a girl on the verge of a breakdown after a breakup, and hosts a purse party. She even cut up her bedspread for one of the bags. (Personally, I think Victoria should have stuck with her day job.)

Geri Halliwell

Season 6, Episode 10: ‘Boy, Interrupted’

Geri Halliwell – better known as her pop name Ginger Spice, plays Pheobe. She’s an acquaintance of Samantha’s who waves her exclusive access to the Soho House pool right in her face.

Kristen Johnston

Season 6, Episode 18: ‘Splat!’

What a choice of name for an episode! Kirstin Johnston plays Lexi Featherston, an aging socialiate who accidentally falls out of a window at a party. Her last words were, “I’m so bored, I could die” – prompting Carrie to re-evaluate her life.
