The Sex and the City core actors have addressed the sexual assault allegations made against their co-star Chris Noth.
Noth, who plays Mr. Big, was put under the spotlight last week after two anonymous women separately approached The Hollywood Reporter to share their sexual assault allegations against the actor.
They stated that the incidents took place in Los Angeles in 2004 and New York in 2015. Noth insisted that both encounters were consensual and that the allegations were “categorically false.”
Now, SATC stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis have addressed the controversy surrounding their co-star, which was shared on their individual social media.
“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” they said in the shared statement. “We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it.”

Noth returned to the limelight due to reprising his role as Mr. Big in And Just Like That…, the HBO Max revival of SATC. He didn’t last long though: his character was infamously killed off in the premiere episode after suffering a heart attack during a Peloton workout. In a now-deleted advert that gained notoriety in the aftermath of the episode, Noth (and Ryan Reynolds) parodied the incident with the exercise equipment company.
His co-star’s statement comes after Noth was dropped from another of his TV shows, CBS’ The Equalizer. He will be part of one original upcoming episode of the series that has already been filmed, as well as future encores of episodes that have already aired, but will no longer be a main part of the show.
