Former SEX AND THE CITY star Kim Cattrall has laughed off criticism over her recent penchant for toyboys, claiming age gaps are immaterial to relationships.

Since splitting from third husband MARK LEVINSON in December 2002, Cattrall, 49, has been dating 27-year-old Canadian chef ALAN WYSE.

Cattrall says, "No (I don't notice the age gap). I know men in their 50s who are much younger than guys in their 20s.

"You can't measure development by years and there's no problem for me having a man as a friend. Hey, it's not always about sex.

"I don't really know (if I'll marry again). I sort of feel things are in flux."
