Cynthia Nixon emerged as a full-on Broadway actress in 1980, in the revival play ‘The Philadelphia Story’. She continued to perform only on Broadway as she was in love with the rush she felt from a live audience. She deservingly won a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for Rabbit Hole in 2006. This set the tone for her rise to stardom!!
Best known for her role as Miranda Hobbes in the HBO series Sex and the City, she portrays a career-minded, yet overworked lawyer. In the show she has a very Type A, workaholic personality. So being a wife and mother raises a whole different set of challenges and stresses for the character, she embraces extreme cynical views on relationships and men, in particular that stem from her on-screen divorce… In an ironic twist, these views ring true through to her personal life too.
In 2003 Cynthia divorced her husband of 15 years as she had fallen deeply in love with Christine Marinoni. These ladies got engaged and soon married in New York City on May 27, 2012. She openly identifies her sexual orientation as bisexual, and is a prominent advocate for the LGBT community and even attends the Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, an LGBT synagogue in New York.
Just a short year after she started entertaining millions, Cynthia Nixon won her first award. Her talent and flair have earned her over 30 award nominations and over 10 outstanding awards. She is truly a gifted woman that not only shows in her skill and defiance on-stage/camera but also on the political stage. Cynthia announced her campaign for the Governor of New York in March of 2018, as a challenger to Democratic incumbent Andrew Como. Sadly, she lost to a lack of votes, however, continues to work closely in rigorous support of many universal causes.
Cynthia now 52-years old is on a mission! This is one Hollywood hottie you can’t miss whether you enjoy her as an actress or an activist. She is not going anywhere anytime soon! Keep your eyes peeled… who knows what she will be getting up to next!
