Cynthia Nixon supports legalization of marijuana: 'Let's capture some of that revenue'

Cynthia Nixon Reveals Which Scene in 'Sex and the City 2' Movie Left Her 'Devastated'

Cynthia Nixon, who is best known for her role as the "tough as nails" lawyer Miranda Hobbs on the hit HBO show Sex and the City, has grabbed the headlines as she announced her intention to run for governor of NY. "But if it's just about name recognition, I'm hoping that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Billy Joel don't get into the race".

The actress spoke of her plans for NY, her days during Sex and the City, and why Donald Trump becoming the country's president served as a wake-up call for her.

"For me, the election of Donald Trump was a real wake up call, as it was a wakeup call for women across the country", she told Williams.

Adding, "If we don't like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up". "We have to get involved like never before, so that's what I'm doing".

The actress addressed the chatter about her being a star entering politics. She argued that incumbent Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo was once himself a celebrity candidate, as the son of former NY governor Mario Cuomo. Next: "Where do you stand on gun control?" asked Williams, who earlier in the show spent an entire segment dishing on Tiger Woods, the rapper Tyga and Kardashian clan momager Kris Jenner. I'm running as a New York City subway rider: that's enough to make anybody run for governor'. "I love NY and I believe so much in NY", said the NYC native, going on to add that funding for the city's public schools would be a top priority for her as governor.

Williams and Nixon also discussed the death of Stephon Clark - a black man who was shot and killed by police in Sacramento, Calif. Nixon was quick to explain that she does think the shooting was a result of being what Williams called a "black man thing".

"I'm absolutely for the legalization of marijuana", Nixon said. "If we are going to say black lives matter, we have to mean it".

If elected governor, Nixon would be the first female and first openly gay governor of NY.

"They are the cornerstone, they are the backbone of the Democratic Party and we need to let them lead", Nixon said.
