The alleged victims contacted The Hollywood Reporter claiming they felt “triggered” by seeing Chris Noth’s success in the brand new Sex and the City revival series And Just Like That. The 67-year-old actor plays suave and highly sought after ladies’ man Mr. Big in the drama.

The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false

Chris Noth

The two women, known only by their pseudonyms, Zoe and Lily, claim that they were assaulted within a decade of each other – one in New York in 2004 and the other in Los Angeles in 2015.

The pair are said not to have known each other, and each contacted the website separately.

Chris Noth firmly denies the allegations, claiming that, for him, “no means no”.

“Seeing that he was reprising his role in Sex and the City set off something in me,” claimed one of his alleged victims.

“Zoe”, who says she is fearful of reprisals due to her career in the entertainment industry, added: “For so many years, I buried it.”

However, she then decided “to try to go public with who he is”.

She claims that after time spent in the actor’s jacuzzi at his Hollywood apartment alongside a friend of hers, followed by a kiss that she “tentatively” reciprocated, he suddenly pulled down her shorts and bikini bottoms and raped her.

“It was very painful and I yelled out, ‘Stop!’” she claimed to the Hollywood Reporter, “but he didn’t.

“I said, ‘Can you at least get a condom?’ and he laughed at me.”

She alleged: “[When it was over], I realized there was blood on my shirt.”

She claimed she was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital to receive stitches, although the hospital has claimed that they have no records of their 2004 patient history.

Meanwhile “Lily” claimed an unprovoked sexual encounter at his apartment had left her “crying” and feeling “violated”.

She recalled meeting him in a New York nightclub in 2015, when she was 25 and he was 60.

Having seen him on screen since his days in Law And Order, she admitted to being “starstruck” and recalled “cautiously entertaining” his kisses after they went back to his place.

However, according to Lily, the interaction then became “pretty forcible” intercourse, which she did not want.

“I was feeling awful. Totally violated,” she claimed.

“All of my dreams with this star I loved for years were gone.”

However in a statement given to Express.co.uk, Chris vehemently denies both of the stories.

“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” he stated.

“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.”
