‘Sex and the City’ actors Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis released a joint statement about co-star Chris Noth’s sexual assault allegations

On Dec. 16, The Hollywood Reporter shared the stories of two women who accused actor Chris Noth of sexual assault. Since then, another woman has come forward with allegations against Noth, and one of his former co-stars, Zoe Lister-Jones, shared her experiences of Noth’s “consistently sexually inappropriate” behavior.

On Monday, Dec. 20, three of Noth’s Sex and the City co-stars reacted to the news of his sexual assault allegations in a joint Instagram statement. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis posted the same words to their respective Instagram Stories. 

“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” the And Just Like That… stars shared in their joint 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.”

‘Sex and the City’ actor Bridget Moynahan has also commented on Chris Noth’s sexual assault accusations

Actor Bridget Moynahan, who plays Mr. Big’s ex-wife in Sex and the City and And Just Like That…, was asked about Noth’s assault allegations for an Elle interview published the day after the accusations came to light. 

First, she was asked how she felt about the death of Chris Noth’s character, which occurred before the accusations were published. 

“I thought it was OK,” Moynahan responded.” It made sense. It’s part of life – it’s part of the lives of women and men of a certain age. It’s what’s happening.”

When asked about the sexual assault allegations against Noth, Moynahan replied, “I don’t know anything about … it would be inappropriate for me to comment on things I don’t have any knowledge of.”

The actor has denied the allegations and hired an attorney

Chris Noth himself has also responded to the accusations. He issued a statement to Us Weekly the same day The Hollywood Reporter story came out.

“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” Noth said. “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.”

He added that the encounters with his accusers were consensual, implying that he had cheated on his wife. One of his accusers claimed Noth assaulted her in 2015 when he was married and had his first child with wife Tara Wilson. 

“The encounters were consensual,” Noth stated. “It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.”

The actor has hired attorney Andrew Brettler, who has also represented Prince Andrew, Armie Hammer, Bryan Singer, Chris D’Elia, and Ryan Adams.
