In her first TV interview since announcing her run for governor of New York, Cynthia Nixon, one of the leading ladies from "Sex and the City", sat down with daytime gossip queen Wendy Williams on Wednesday, where no time was wasted on fluff.

The actress, 51, recently announced that she is running for governor of NY. "We have to get involved like never before, so that's what I'm doing".

When the subject on the show turned to the legalization of marijuana, Nixon said she was "absolutely" for it.

The actress also threw the "celebrity" label right back at Gov. Andrew Cuomo - in reference to a joke he cracked last month about Nixon running for governor. "We have such an appetite now, that's why I'm running". I'm running as a New York City subway rider, but also I have been fighting for better and particularly more equal funding of New York state's public schools for the last 17 years.

When Williams asked if the death of Stephon Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old black man shot and killed by police in his grandmother's backyard in Sacramento, California, was a "black thing", Nixon responded, "Yes, I think it is".

Despite her reaction to the scene, Nixon jokes that even empowered women love clothes. "Black women are going to stop showing up for the Democratic Party if the Democratic Party doesn't show up for them", she said.
