While many of us consider the relationship between Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big to be a fairytale ending to Sex and the City, the series' creator would have done things a little differently.
Darren Star, American television producer behind the show, revealed he was ultimately unhappy with how the hit HBO show concluded.
"I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage," said Darren in a recent interview for Kindle Singles.
"Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached."
Carrie met Mr. Big in the first episode of the series that ran from 1996 to 2004 and many fans felt it was a fitting conclusion that the couple ended up together.
The pair ultimately went on to marry in the first Sex and the City movie.
The 54-year-old producer revealed that the decision to have Mr. Big and Carrie end up together was made by other producers and writers on the series.
"For me, in a way – I didn't [write] those last episodes. At a certain point, you've got to let them follow their vision.
"At the end, it became a conventional romantic comedy. But unless you're there to write every episode, you're not going to get the ending you want."
We don't mind because we love a good fairytale ending, even if it's totally not real life.
