Cynthia Nixon (and Miranda Hobbes!) are all about spreading age positivity.

The 55-year-old actress talked about how she embraced sporting gray hair as Miranda in the Sex and the City revival series, And Just Like That..., during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan Wednesday.

Host Kelly Ripa, 51, asked Nixon about how she along with other costars of the film have taken heat for appearing in the HBO Max series with gray hair.

"The newspapers were breathlessly reporting that some of you were sporting gray hair," said Ripa sarcastically.

In response Nixon who is reprising her role in the series as Miranda Hobbes pointed out why the chief writer and director of the series, Michael Patrick King, thought the decision was appropriate.

"Right. Well, Michael Patrick King who is our chief writer and director, he was like, 'You know, a lot of women during the pandemic, they couldn't get out to the beauty parlor and they decided to go gray and then they decided that they liked it. So if it was going to be one of the women, we think it would be Miranda.' So yeah," said Nixon explaining the decision behind Miranda's look.

Ripa as it turns out has also taken some criticism for flaunting her gray hairs.

"I didn't mind having gray hair during the pandemic, I really didn't. I thought I looked cute with my hair gray. And then there were people who were like, 'It's not as cute as you think," Ripa said.

In a recent Vogue feature, Parker opened up about the agist comments from social media critics on her own graying hair on And Just Like That.

"There's so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man," Parker said in the interview.

"'Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair?' I'm sitting with Andy Cohen, and he has a full head of gray hair, and he's exquisite," she continued of her pal and 2021 Met Gala date. "Why is it okay for him?"
