Chris — who played Mr. Big/John James Preston in all six seasons of the original HBO show and the subsequent movies — briefly reprised his role in December 2021 for the SATC revival, And Just Like That.

He reunited with his costars — namely, his onscreen wife, Sarah Jessica Parker — but the return was short-lived after Big was killed off in Episode 1 of the first series.

Then, just one week after the first episode aired Dec. 16, Chris was accused of sexual misconduct by two women.

In an article published by the Hollywood Reporter, the two women — who both spoke under pseudonyms, Zoe and Lily — claimed that Chris sexually assaulted them on separate occasions in 2004 and 2015.

He quickly denied the allegations in a statement provided to the same outlet, calling the claims “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,” Chris said at the time.

On Dec. 18, a third person came forward with accusations against the actor. A woman — who spoke under the pseudonym Ava — alleged to the Daily Beast that Chris sexually assaulted her in 2010 when he was 55 and she was 18.

Five days later, on Dec. 23, singer-songwriter Lisa Gentile claimed she was “sexually victimized” and “sexually abused” by him in 2002. And the same day, an actor named Heather Kristin became the fifth person to level accusations against the actor, recalling alleged “toxic” and “disgusting” behavior she experienced while working with him on four seasons of SATC.

Despite his denial, the fallout from the claims was swift. Within days, a Peloton ad he starred in was taken down, he was dropped from The Equalizer, and he was also let go from his talent agency.

Variety later confirmed that Chris was edited out of the And Just Like That season finale, during which his character had been set to make a cameo in a fantasy sequence.

At the time, Chris’s former costars spoke out in support of the women in a joint statement.

“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” Sarah Jessica, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon said on social media. “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.”

Having played onscreen love interests for more than a decade, Chris and SJP became close friends. But in May 2022, she told the Hollywood Reporter that she hadn’t spoken to him since the allegations surfaced.

Which brings us to now, and the SATC stars are back in the limelight with the release of And Just Like That’s second season, which premiered on Max on June 22.

Given that his character died, there was never any expectation that Chris would be involved in the second season. However, that didn’t stop the actor from making headlines on June 23 when Radar Online published reports that he felt “iced out” by his former colleagues.

“He’s not invited to their parties. He doesn’t get greeting cards or happy birthday texts,” an insider claimed of Chris’s relationship with Sarah Jessica, Cynthia, and Kristin. “He wonders why SJP and her troupe continue to leave him out in the cold.”

The source alleged that Chris felt “slighted” by the trio and felt that they owe him an apology for the “rude behavior” he has endured.

The same day, Chris took to Instagram to slam the claims, describing them as “absolute nonsense.”

“I usually don’t respond to this kind of thing. And I do know that people like drama and gossip... but this article […] is absolute nonsense,” he wrote alongside a screenshot of Page Six’s report. “Just thought you’d like to know.”
