And it didn't take long for Kristin Davis, her former Sex and the City costar, to declare her support.

I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon , no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education. I know that she would be an excellent Governor ! https://t.co/xEAyRxFBb8

And now, Kim Cattrall ‏has weighed in on Nixon's decision to run while answering a fan's question on Twitter.

"I support & respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices," Cattrall tweeted Thursday.

Nixon replied on Twitter, thanking Cattrall, who played Samantha on HBO's Sex and the City.

@KimCattrall Hey, Kim! Thanks much. XOXO

But a lot of people thought Cattrall's message about a "former colleague" was cold.

@KimCattrall There is a thousand different meanings in that response!

@KimCattrall So shady son 🤦‍♂️ridiculous

@KimCattrall Sounds abit stone cold. Not ‘friend’ but ‘colleague’ :/ Maybe im just reading more into this. I like to think all 4 of them hang out together in NY shopping and stuff haha. I know they were just working together and its not how it works most of the time but its a nice image

Cattrall retweeted someone who referenced a Fox News article about her tweet and said, "Funny how Fox News considers the words 'I support and respect' as dismissive."

The Nixon tweet comes after the third Sex and the City film was shut down, followed by reports of drama between the cast members.
