The stars of Sex And The City have said they are “deeply saddened” by allegations made against Chris Noth and praised the women who have come forward.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who played Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte in the hit TV show, acknowledged the difficulty of sharing the “painful experiences”.

“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth,” they posted 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 for them to do and we commend them for it.”

It comes after Noth, who played Mr Big in the show, was dropped from the CBS drama The Equalizer following the allegations.

Although there is no investigation into the 67-year-old actor, several brands have begun to distance themselves from him.

He has been accused of assaulting two women more than 10 years apart.

Noth played the recurring role of detective William Bishop in the CBS drama, which stars Queen Latifah.

The series, which is produced by Universal Television in association with CBS Television Studios, aired last February 2021.

“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately,” Universal Television and CBS said.

Last week, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed there was as yet no investigation into the sexual assault allegations, which Noth (67) has called “categorically false”.

Officer Drake Madison told reporters: “There is no record of a report being filed at this time. Without a report there is no investigation.”

The two women approached trade publication The Hollywood Reporter separately to claim Noth’s reprisal of his role in the SATC spin-off show And Just Like That... had stirred up painful memories.
