SSiTV – Media Pop Culture Made for the Youth
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis expressed support for the women who accused Chris Noth of sexual assault.
On Monday, Dec. 20, the stars of Sex and the City issued matching statements to their respective social media accounts addressing the allegations against their co-star, whose character, Mr. Big, was killed off And Just Like That… in the premiere episode.
They stated, “We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. 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.”
Parker, Nixon and Davis are the first stars of And Just Like That to address the allegations—aside from Noth, who has denied the claims.
And Just Like That… actress Bridget Moynahan declined to comment on the accusations during an Elle interview published on Dec. 17, saying, “It would be inappropriate for me to comment on things I don’t have any knowledge of.”
The stars broke their silence four days after The Hollywood Reporter published the accounts of two women, who used pseudonyms when discussing the alleged assaults they say took place in 2004 and 2015, respectively. According to the outlet, the two women separately reached out to them and do not know each other.
Actress Zoe Lister-Jones also accused Noth of being “consistently sexually inappropriate with a fellow female promoter” and alleged he was “drunk on set” when they guest starred on Law & Order.
In response to the actress’ claims, a source close to Noth told E! News, “This seems like an obvious attempt to insert themselves into the conversation, and to allege Chris was drunk on the set of Law & Order is also just as untrue.”
Noth has also denied the allegations. “The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago—no always means no—that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out,” Noth said in a statement. “I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.”
Noth has since been dropped from the A3 Artists Agency. Additionally, CBS and Universal Television said on Monday, “Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately.”
