Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis have spoken out en masse regarding sexual assault allegations against actor Chris Noth.
The three stars of And Just Like That… released a joint statement on Monday.
“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” the short ad began.
We support women who have come forward and shared their traumatic experiences. We know it must be very challenging and we applaud them for that.
Noth’s famous Mr. Page character was killed in the first episode of the Sex and the City revival, titled And Just Like That…, earlier this month.

Last week, Noth, 67, was accused of rape by two women, both of whom shared details of their alleged assaults with The Hollywood Reporter — with one woman saying she was only 22 when Noth, then 49, attacked her, leaving her needing stitches.
The report led another woman to come forward and accuse Noth of groping her, while actress Zoe Lister-Jones recalled behavior that made her call him a “predator”.
Both defendants in the THR report alleged that Noth had sex with them from behind in front of a mirror, the first attack allegedly occurring in 2004, while the second attack reportedly occurred in 2015, three years after Noth married his wife Tara. Wilson, has two children.
Speaking: On Monday, the three main stars of And Just Like That… spoke out in support of the women who made the allegations.
The two women also allege that the attacks took place at one of Noth’s homes – one at his Los Angeles apartment and the second at his New York City property – after the actor invited them.
Both women claim that the recent publicity surrounding the Sex and the City reboot – and just like that – ‘triggered painful memories’ of their encounters with Noth, who came to prominence in the news last week as a result of the sudden death of his character Mr. Page in the first episode of The new series.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Noth, who has two sons with Wilson – Keats and Orion – admitted that he had “consensual encounters” with the two women in the Hollywood Reporter story, both of which occurred while he was in his affair with his wife, but vehemently denied any accusations of assaulting her. .
“The accusations made against me by individuals I’ve met for years or even decades are categorically false,” the statement read.
These stories could have been 30 years or 30 days ago – doesn’t always mean no – that’s the line I haven’t crossed. The meetings were consensual.
It is hard not to question the timing of the publication of these stories. I do not know for sure why they appear now, but I do know this: I did not attack these women.
Noth returned to the small screens recently in the reboot of Sex And The City, and like that…
On Friday, a third woman came forward and accused Nuth of molesting her at a Manhattan restaurant in 2010 when she was 18.
The 30-year-old Canadian technology manager alleged that Noth, then 55, repeatedly molested her while she was working as a hostess at the downtown Da Marino restaurant, the Daily Beast first reported.
She alleges that Nuth took off her tights, touched them, and grabbed them so tightly that after she managed to push and kick him away, she “hurt her limbs in the morning.”
He was also accused of beating and threatening to kill and defame his ex-girlfriend, model Beverly Johnson between 1990 and 1995, according to an article that appeared online this week.
The shells caused his agency, A3 Artists Agency, to shoot him down, and an old friend of the actor told The Sun that Noth’s wife, Tara Wilson, might not be spending Christmas with him.
It also led to the loss of a $12 million deal to sell his tequila brand.
Entertainment Arts Research, Inc. , a Nevada-based beverage company that often buys popular beverage brands, said Sunday it would immediately end discussions to buy Noth’s Ambhar tequila.
And Just Like caused controversy after killing Noth’s character in the first episode after his character worked on his Peloton bike.
“At this point in time, it does not make sense for us to proceed with this transaction in light of the claims, which must be taken very seriously,” EARI CEO Bernard Rubin said in a press release. “However, we continue to search for spirit brands that fit the ethos of ERI’s social responsibility.”
Meanwhile, on Monday, Noth was fired from CBS a crime Drama series The Equalizer.
“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately,” Universal Television and CBS said in a statement obtained by Deadline.
Noth is said to appear in the next episode of the show, which is already seven episodes in its second season. Noth has not appeared in the series since 2021.
The actor made a splash in the new series Sex and the City, after his character was killed off riding a peloton bike — with Noth later in the meantime by starring in a viral commercial for the exercise company.
However, just days after its release, Peloton deleted the ad following allegations of rape and sexual assault.
In a statement, Peloton assured DailyMail.com last Thursday: “Every accusation of sexual assault must be taken seriously. We were unaware of these allegations when we featured Chris Noth in our response to the HBO reboot. As we seek to find out more, we’ve stopped promoting this Video and archive related social posts.
The ad was produced by movie star Ryan Reynolds and his marketing company Maximum Effort, with the actor also narrating the clip.
