Kim Cattrall is unrecognizable in How I Met Your Father trailer after she ditches SATC reboot for Hulu show in cast feud
KIM Cattrall looked completely unrecognizable in the first trailer for her new Hulu show, How I Met Your Father.
The 65-year-old chose not to reprise her role as Samantha Jones in the Sex and the City revival and instead is getting ready for the release of her How I Met Your Mother spinoff series.
HIMYM ran for nine seasons from 2005 through 2014 and is now coming backas a spinoff, from the perspective of a new character, Sophie.
Like the original show, the new series, which premieres on January 18 on Hulu. will see the main character recounting to her kids the story of how she met their father.
The episodes will flashback to the year 2022 where Sophie and her friends navigate dating and their daily lives.
While Hilary Duff stars as the younger version of Sophie, Kim plays her older counterpart and appeared in the trailer to begin the tale of how she met her kids' dad.
Narrating HIMYF, Kim looked unrecognizable as she sat on a couch wearing a half-zip sweater and a light coat over her shoulders, with her hands clasped together in her lap.
She looked directly in the camera, with her short blonde hair parted in the middle and said: “This is the story of how I met your father. It was hard to live in the moment of 2022.

Despite spending so much time playing SATC's Samantha, on both the show and in its two movies, Kim opted out of joining co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon for the revival.
HBO Max's chief content officer Casey Bloys helped to explain why the character will be missing from the reboot.
He confirmed that the show's bosses thought having all four original members still be best friends 17 years after the original show ended was unrealistic.
"They're not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s."
Casey continued: "In real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships
"So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life," Bloys continued.
"They're trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you're 30, you may not have when you're 50."
Kim, who has been in rumored feuds for years with her co-stars, isn’t the only one of the SATC stars to be looking like a completely new woman lately.
The beloved HBO series is back with a revival on HBOMax, and viewers have been left wondering why Kristin looks so different now.
While seeing promo photos for the show, titled And Just Like That, and the first episodes, fans were shocked over the Charlotte actress' appearance.
Kristin’s hair is still long and brown, and her clothes are still conservative-but-sexy, but it’s her face that viewers found to be completely different, some wondering if she's had plastic surgery.
One fan tweeted: “And just like that…Kristin Davis’ face is unrecognizable”
A second wrote: “I have no words for what Kristin Davis has done to her face”
Anothre asked: “what in the hell did kristin davis do to her face?”
Others joked that Kristin’s face is “camp” and that she’s “ got them All Stars lips b***h.”
“No misogyny, but Kristin Davis’s new face is kinda serving Family Guy animation style teas,” another fan tweeted.
