Cynthia Nixon believes living in New York made it easier to reveal she had left the father of her children to embark on a romance with a woman.

Cynthia Nixon thinks living in New York made it easier for her to speak about her sexuality.

The 'Sex and the City' actress - who has children Samantha, 14, and Charles, seven, with ex-partner Danny Mozer - says the cosmopolitan city is more accepting of her same-sex relationship with Christine Marinoni.

She said: "Living in New York made it easier to come out. I'm sure it was strange for my daughter, but we have so many gay people in our lives - her uncle is gay, her godmothers are gay. It would be different if we lived somewhere else."

The actress thinks the "richness" and "energy" of the city make it a perfect place to bring up her children.

She explained: "There is such diversity in New York, every nationality and every religion, all kinds of neighbourhoods and lifestyles.

"It's so rich that way. I really like the energy on the street. It was a great place to grow up and it's a great place to raise your children."
