Cynthia Nixon: I'd Marry My Girlfriend

Posted: Updated:

The UK Mirror sat down with "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon, and she revealed she would marry her girlfriend Christine Marinoni, given the legal opportunity. The pair have been together since 2004.

"If it becomes legal I think we would," says Cynthia, who still lives in the Upper West Side neighbourhood where she was born. "It's something my girlfriend is interested in and it was not something my boyfriend ever was.

"I think that to get married to her would be a little act of rebellion. It's like if you've never had the vote and then you get it you're going to run out there and vote.

"I always avoided marriage in the past and was always very wary of it. I felt like it was potentially a trap. People sometimes want the party, the gifts and the public celebration of this big love - they're excited about that rather than about the lifetime commitment. So I always steered clear of it." Emmy-award winning Cynthia shocked everyone when she walked out on her partner of 15 years - English professor Danny Mozes - for Christine...

"I never felt like there was an unconscious part of me that woke up or came out of the closet. There wasn't a struggle or an attempt to suppress. I met this woman and I fell in love with her.
