After being dropped from ‘The Equalizer’ due to sexual assault allegations against him, Chris Noth has been condemned by former fellow costars, in addition to being dropped frm his agency. Three women came out earlier last week alleging the actor had assaulted them during the early 2000s.
Only mere hours after he was fired from ‘The Equalizer’, all three of his former costars from ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘And Just Like That…’, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, have released a joined statement via Instagram, condemning Chris Noth and showing support for the victims, saying, “We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. 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,” followed by each of their names.
Though, Noth’s ‘And Just Like That…’ journey had come to an end just days before the accusations were made public when his character Mr. Big died of a heart attack.
A3 Artists Agency, the agency that represented Chris Noth, has also dropped the actor after signing him just this October. According to the actor himself, all the allegations against him are “categorically false.”
Entertainment Arts Research CEO Bernard Rubin in his own statement announced that “his company will no longer purchase ‘Ambhar Tequila’, a tequila brand by Chris Noth. The contract between the two was undergoing and was supposed to be done for $12 million. At this point in time it doesn’t make sense for us to move forward with this deal in light of the claims, which must be taken with the utmost seriousness,” said Bernard Rubin.
In a statement to CNN, Chris Noth defended his stance by saying, “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.”
