Cynthia Nixon didn’t know Ivanka Trump had quoted her in the new book Women Who Work: Revisiting the Rules For Success.

The Sex and the City alum, currently on Broadway in The Little Foxes, was told about her inclusion while appearing on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this week.

‘What did I say?’ a curious Nixon asked host Andy Cohen.

Turns out it was a quote about trying new things.

Nixon is quoted as saying: ‘If you are given a number of takes while making a film trust that the thing you were trying to do you kind of did it. Why not try something else? You could take that idea and apply it to life.’

After hearing the quote read aloud Nixon said: ‘Seems fine.’

But the famously liberal actress who is married to a woman could’t resist taking a dig at Ivanka’s dad who is embroiled in more scandals by the day.

‘I’m not sure we should just pick people randomly out of a hat to be president – I wouldn’t go that far in trying new things. But yeah, I think trying new things in general is great.’
