Sex and the City stars praise women who accused Mr Big actor of rape

Sex and the City actors Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis have praised the alleged victims of co-star Chris Noth after he was accused of sexual assault.

The group issued a joint statement Monday on social media saying they were saddened by the allegations against Noth, the actor who played Mr Big in the series.

"We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences," a statement signed by the three read. "We know that it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it."

Two women accused Noth of sexual assault in a story reported last week by The Hollywood Reporter. Noth vehemently denied the allegations, which date back to 2004 and 2015.

"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," Noth, 67, said in a statement to the Reporter.

One of the women who accused Noth of assaulting her said his reprisal of his Mr Big character on the Sex and the City sequel And Just Like That prompted her to speak out about the actor.

On Monday, Noth was scrapped from the CBS series The Equalizer. Universal Television and CBS made a joint announcement that Noth would no longer be part of filming "effective immediately."

Noth has played a former CIA director on The Equalizer, which stars Queen Latifah. Noth will appear in at least one upcoming episode.

Noth’s representatives had no immediate comment on The Equalizer decision.
