London: Actress Kim Cattrall says she loved having the opportunity to put on weight for the role of an aging stripper in ‘Meet Monica Velour’.

"I play an over-the-hill stripper. I gained 15 pounds, then through the course of shooting, I gained another five. It was heaven putting it on and hell taking it off," a website quoted her as saying.

The 54-year-old actress admits the story about a boy who falls in love with her character is "very sweet".

"It`s about this woman in her 50s who meets this young man who`s 17 and they have a relationship of sorts. It`s very sweet and very dear," she said.

When asked about the possibility of a third "Sex and the City" movie, Kim admits she hopes it might happen because she misses the other actresses - Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.

"I miss the girls. We`ve all been so busy since the show ended, privately and professionally," she said.
