Drew Barrymore Defended Infamous SATC Breakup!

Drew Barrymore had a surprising defense for that infamous breakup scene from Sex and the City!

For those who need a refresher, the scene we’re talking about here is the episode where Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw gets dumped by her boyfriend Jack Berger, portrayed by Ron Livingston, through a Post-It note left on her pillow. The message simply said three unforgettable sentences, “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.” You can ch-ch-ch-check out the scene (below):

Brutal, right? He couldn’t even wait until she woke up the next day to end things with her! The sticky note breakup method instantly made Berger one of the most loathed exes in Carrie Bradshaw’s dating history. However, Drew Barrymore seems to be going to bat for him!

During an episode of the And Just Like That… The Writer’s Room podcast on Thursday, director Michael Patrick King revealed that the 48-year-old SATC “superfan” believes Berger potentially had it right all along with the short and sweet breakup note! He recalled her saying when she came to film her cameo on And Just Like That:

“Can I just say one thing? Everybody looked at her and she said, ‘Maybe Berger had it right. If you’re gonna break up with someone, just say, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t. Don’t hate me.’ Don’t drag them through weeks of indecision.’ She was like, ‘I just want to say, as painful as it was, maybe Berger was an emoji.’”

Micahel added:

“And then we went as far as to say there should be a Post-It emoji that says ‘I’m sorry, I can’t. Don’t hate me’ that people could just send.”

Obviously, yeah, dragging out the breakup process or ghosting someone would be awful. But a person ending a relationship with a partner via a short sticky note instead of saying it to their face? That still is pretty cruel as well. And Drew, we bet people would also be furious if they received a sticky note emoji that read, “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me,” when getting broken up with. Just saying!

But what do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Do you agree with Drew that Berger was onto something with his Post-It note strategy? Or do you still believe it’s the worst breakup tactic in television history? Sound OFF in the comments below!
