Sex and the City star, Chris Noth accused of sexually assaulting two women

Sex and the City star, Chris Noth accused of sexually assaulting two women

Actor Chris Noth who played “Mr. Big” on “Sex and the City,” has been accused by two women of sexual assault. 

 

The allegation was made days after the release the HBO show’s much awaited spin-off.

 

One of the women identified as Zoe, alleged that Noth “raped her from behind” in 2004 after meeting him at a high-profile firm with celebrity clients. She met a then-49-year-old Noth while working as an assistant at a talent agency in 2004.

 

Zoe alleged that he “flirted” with her at the Los Angeles office and invited her to his West Hollywood apartment.

 

According to the lady, she took her best friend to soak up the sun at the pool at Noth’s West Hollywood apartment complex but things took a turn when he asked her to bring a book upstairs to him.

 

She alleged that when she got upstairs, he started trying to kiss her. She tried to get away and get back to her friend, but Noth drew her towards the bed and pulled off her shorts and bikini bottoms, allegedly raping her from behind. 

 

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Zoe claimed he assaulted her and “laughed” when she asked him to put on a “condom” amid the “painful” experience.

 

She said;

 

“It was very painful and I yelled out, ‘Stop!’

“And he didn’t. I said, ‘Can you at least get a condom?’ and he laughed at me.”

“I realized there was blood on my shirt. I got out of there. I went to my friend’s apartment [in the same building].”

 

Her best friend, who was visiting from college, allegedly told her “You’re scaring me.” That friend, now a child psychologist in Boston, told THR that she took Zoe to the hospital.

 

The friend said;

 

“She wouldn’t talk. She wouldn’t make eye contact. When we got in the car, I started pressing her: ‘You have to tell me what happened. Something’s wrong.’ I don’t remember the words she said, but I said, ‘I’m taking you to the hospital.’”

 

The friends went to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, where Zoe told staff she had been assaulted.

 

She added;

 

“I had stitches. Two police officers came. I wouldn’t say who it was.”

 

Fearing that she would not be believed and possibly fired if she made a public accusation, Zoe said she kept quiet and left the hospital with a counseling brochure and medicine. Cedars told THR it does not keep records dating back to 2004. The lady also said she was prompted to speak out after all the hype around the new HBO Max series.

 

According to Zoe’s former boss, Zoe called her later that day and told her that Noth had attacked her, although Zoe doesn’t remember making that call.

 

The former boss said; 

 

“I was driving behind where Soho House is now, and I think I stopped and pulled over because it was so horrible.

“She was very upset, kind of in shock. I was in shock.” But at Zoe’s request, she did not disclose the attack to anyone. “I was 25 at the time. It was a lot. I didn’t know what to do.

“She was very upset, kind of in shock. I was in shock.” 

 

But at Zoe’s request, she did not disclose the attack to anyone. “I was 25 at the time. It was a lot. I didn’t know what to do.”

 

After suffering from nightmares and flashbacks, Zoe went to counseling at the UCLA Rape Crisis Center in 2006.

 

She said; 

 

“I had buried it as long as I could, and then I really wasn’t doing well and finally went to the treatment the ER had recommended.”

 

Julie Banks, clinical director at the Rape Treatment Center, confirms the facility treated her. After undergoing treatment, Zoe tried to repress the memory again, but the memories of the alleged assault were dredged up again recently by seeing Noth in the spotlight.

 

The second woman, Lily, allegedly met Noth when she was 25, working as a server at a New York City nightclub in 2015. He was already married to wife Tara Wilson whom he wed in 2012 and Lily said she was starstruck, adding: “He was hitting on me, for sure. I was flattered. I knew he was married, which is shameful of me to admit.”

 

Noth, then 60, got her number and asked her out. “I was like, ‘That’s crazy, Mr. Big is asking me out for dinner,’” she recalled.  He asked her to meet him at Il Cantinori, which as a fan of the show, Lily knew had been the setting for the “SATC” episode where Carrie throws her 30th birthday party.

 

By the time Lily arrived, the kitchen had closed and they drank wine at the bar as she said that Noth talked about not wanting to appear in a third “SATC” movie. He then allegedly asked her back to his Greenwich Village apartment to sample his whiskeys. 

 

She told THR;

 

 “I was not super sexually active, not wild and crazy. I thought, ‘We’re going to drink whiskey and talk about his acting career.’ It sounds so stupid.

“He tried to make out with me. I cautiously entertained it. He’s older and looked older. He kept trying and trying and trying, and I should have said no more firmly and left. And then the next thing I knew, he pulled down his pants and he was standing in front of me.” 

 

Lily claimed that Noth thrust his penis into her mouth afterwards. She also alleged that the actor told her at the time that “marriage is a sham and onogamy is not real.” 

 

She added; 

 

“He was having sex with me from the back in a chair. We were in front of a mirror. I was kind of crying as it happened.

“I went to the bathroom and put on my skirt. I was feeling awful. Totally violated. All of my dreams with this star I loved for years were gone.”

 

Her friend Alex said she called him hysterical from an Uber and told her that Noth had “pretty forcibly” had sex with her. Alex said they should call the police, but Lily refused. Lily says she doesn’t remember making the call.

 

By the next day, Alex said Lily had started trying to minimize the incident. “She said, ‘I’m overreacting, just forget it.’” 

 

She also claimed that she listened to a voicemail that Noth had left on Lily’s phone. Alex alleged that Noth said;

 

“It was, ‘Hey, hope you didn’t take anything wrong last night. We had fun. Just want to make sure you didn’t take it the wrong way.’”

 

To Alex, it seemed “very much, ‘I know I did something bad, but I’m trying to make it seem like it wasn’t a big deal.’”

 

Lily also said;

 

“He left a voicemail saying, ‘I had a nice time and would really appreciate it if you wouldn’t talk to your girlfriends. If we could keep this between you and me, that would be great.”

 

THR reviewed texts Noth and Lily exchanged in March and April 2015. In one, Noth messaged: “By the way I have to ask did you enjoy our night last week. I thought it was a lot of fun but I wasn’t quite sure how you felt.”

 

Lily replied: “Hmm…I certainly enjoyed your company. Great conversation. Not to go into specifics over text message, but I did feel slightly used… Perhaps this is better as a phone conversation but I can’t talk at the moment.”

 

Noth mentioned hoping to meet again for dinner or drinks. Lily continued to respond in a friendly but noncommittal way. At one point, she agreed to dinner, then canceled. She continued to put him off, and they never met again.

 

“If you do want to have a drink later it doesn’t have to be at my place…although I have the best whiskey,” he wrote in one exchange. “Come have a drink with me before I leave [town]. Oh mysterious one… where did you go.”

 

Noth has “categorically” denied the claims. He said in a statement; 

 

“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. The encounters were consensual. 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.”
