“I was fired from Antz, yeah, that animated movie,” the Divorce actress, 51, said on Tuesday, October 18. “Apparently I’m a bad ant. … They brought in Sharon Stone.”

She added: “What was upsetting was the week before they fired me, they called me to tell me how great I was.”

Parker originally landed the role of Princess Bala in the 1998 adventure comedy. The film also featured the voices of Woody Allen, Dan Aykroyd, Danny Glover, Jennifer Lopez, Sylvester Stallone and Gene Hackman.

Years later, Parker found herself in the same predicament when she was let go from 2004’s Home on the Range. She didn’t reveal which part she had, but did say she already had a few voice sessions under her belt when she was given the boot.

“I can’t remember which movie fired me first,” she told shock jock Howard Stern. “The first time they were like, ‘We’re going in a different direction.’ Which I always heard, like, as a joke.”

Parker isn’t hurting for work, though. She famously played Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City from 1998 to 2004 and currently stars in HBO’s freshman series Divorce.

Last month, the star teased the possibility of a third Sex and the City movie. “We have this very long and honored relationship with those women and men that watched our show,” she told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “We aren’t casual about it and we have to know that we are offering up something that is deserving of their time and affection and dollars for tickets. So, we consider all those things. That means we aren’t being flighty with them. It’s not on the table. It’s in the warming drawer.”
