Sex and the City stars break silence on Chris Noth's assault allegations
New York, New York - Sarah Jessica Parker and her fellow Sex and the City castmates have spoken out regarding Chris Noth's recent sexual assault allegations.
SJP, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon released a joint statement on Monday in the midst of the fallout following claims against their costar.
Last week, The Hollywood Reporter published a report of two women who alleged the actor raped them on separate instances in 2004 and 2015.
Following this, the 67-year-old was also accused of being a "predator" by his Law & Order costar Zoe Lister-Jones.
On Friday, the Daily Beast published an account of yet another woman claiming that Noth forced himself on her in the back office of a Midtown restaurant in 2010.
After initially remaining silent, SJP, Davis, and Nixon – who recently reprised their SATC roles in the HBO Max revival And Just Like That – have now revealed that they are standing with the women who have made allegations against the actor known as Mr. Big.
"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," the three ladies wrote in a post shared via Twitter.
Following the allegations, the veteran actor's career has already suffered an immense blow.
Despite maintaining his innocence, the star has been dropped by his talent agency and was fired from his current TV role on The Equalizer.
For now, the actor's character Mr. Big will still appear as planned throughout the HBO Max reboot And Just Like That, despite him being killed off in the first episode.
Yet if the show gets renewed for a second season, it's highly unlikely that Noth will be asked to return.
