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

On March 19, Cynthia Nixon announced she was running for governor of NY, after rumors about a possible announcement swirled around the Internet for months.

Former Sex and the City star and future Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon said she supports legalizing marijuana in her first national television appearance, which occured on Wednesday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show. President Trump's astonishing election win also partly inspired her run.

The actress, 51, recently announced that she is running for governor of NY.

"If we don't like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up and get involved like never before", Nixon said.

"I'm absolutely for the legalization of marijuana", Nixon said.

While Nixon isn't the first celebrity to run for office, the actress, unfortunately, already has the odds stacked against her. (All right, fine, the pair did discuss shoes - but only for a moment.) After quickly dispensing with the small talk, Williams, known for her no-holds-barred celebrity interviews, was all business.


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.

She did add after that, "We love the clothes!" "I have to say, when Andrew Cuomo ran eight years ago, he was a celebrity because he was the son of Mario Cuomo".

"There's such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state", she said during the 13-minute chat.

Nixon's made recent headlines for her support to legalize marijuana, noting there is "such an appetite for real progressive change in NY state". I'm running as a New York City subway rider, but also I have been fighting for better and particularly more equal funding of New York state's public schools for the last 17 years.

Williams and Nixon also spoke about the "senseless killings" of unarmed black men, an issue that Nixon believes "is a black man thing". "If we're going to say black lives matter, then we have to mean it".

"They are the cornerstone, the backbone of the Democratic Party", Nixon said. "Yes, I think it is", Nixon said, proceeding to criticize politicians for failing to speak up.
