Ms. Cattrall will appear in the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! campaign as the star of a series of television commercials slated to air in March 2011. In a savvy style reminiscent of her famous television series role, Ms. Cattrall plays out some clever storylines that place her in the company of delicious-looking men and delectable food, brought to life by a series of clever double entendres and some fun wordplay.

"Enjoying I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! is kind of like finding a deliciously gorgeous man, and then discovering he's single," joked Ms. Cattrall. "That's the spirit that we're playing with in this campaign - we're showing women they can have it all - delicious taste, with fewer calories and less fat than butter."

Barry Sands, Senior Brand Manager for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! added, "In fact, a new taste test found that four out of five butter lovers agree that I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original spread tastes just as good as fresh butter.(1) The 'You Can Have It All' campaign highlights the rich and delicious fresh butter taste of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, while reminding audiences that this taste comes with 70 percent less saturated fat and 30 percent fewer calories than butter and zero grams of trans fat per serving.(2)"

"I do love to eat, but I strive to eat well - so I love having a choice that I can feel good about using every day," said Ms. Cattrall. "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! tastes at great as fresh butter and I feel satisfied when I eat it, so I don't have to compromise."

To highlight the great taste and versatility of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, Chef Alex Guarnaschelli of Butter Restaurant in New York City created six exclusive recipes inspired by the fresh butter taste for the campaign launch. From a Fresh Cranberry Spread for toast to I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Cookies, the recipes featuring I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! are highlighted on www.icantbelieveitsnotbutter.com.

"I grew up watching my mother make toast with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! It always was, and still is, in my family's refrigerator," said Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. "And as a chef, home cook and mother, I never want to compromise taste as I create recipes - and I don't have to when I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! It tastes great and performs really well in a number of recipes, including sauteing and baking."

The new campaign also supports the launch of two new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! varieties, making it easier than ever to infuse fresh butter taste into foods without compromise:

  • New I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a perfect topping for chicken and vegetables.
  • New I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Whipped & Creamy Taste has a creamy texture and tastes indulgent.
